University of Toronto Students Disrupt Speech of Professor Refusing to Use “Transgender” Pronouns

Christian News Network reports:

silenced-3A rally speech by a professor at the University of Toronto who refuses to use politically correct pronouns in addressing those with gender dysphoria was recently disrupted by upset students. Jordan Peterson, a professor of psychology at the university, opposes the proposed Canadian bill C-16, which adds “gender identity and gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination.” Those who violate the law by discriminating against a transgendered person or using speech that is deemed to “incite hatred” against the person might face up to two years behind bars.

Peterson refers to similar laws already passed in New York City, which include a prohibition on “[i]ntentionally failing to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun or title,” such as “repeatedly calling a transgender woman ‘him’ or ‘Mr.’ when she has made it clear that she prefers female pronouns and a female title.”
