A professor at the University of Toronto is being attacked and harassed, and accused of violating the country's human rights laws, because he refuses to use gender-neutral pronouns like "zhe" and "zer" with students who request them.
Jordan Peterson, who was a professor of psychology at Harvard University before moving to the University of Toronto, says the whole "70 genders" thing is ridiculous and anti-scientific, and he won't acquiesce in it.
He notes that there is zero scholarly support for the "gender identity" craze, noting that some of the scores of genders claimed to exist don't seem to have even a single person who belong to them.
The left-wing tolerance crowd is of course disrupting his events. Others are trying to get him removed from the University of Toronto on the grounds that refusal to use the pronouns is a violation of Canadian law.
Professor Peterson is my guest tomorrow.
