"Google And YouTube Ban Prof Who Refused To Use Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

Via InstapunditProfessor Jordan B. Peterson of the University of Toronto disputed Google and YouTube’s decision to lock him out of his accounts, according to correspondence obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Please tell me what principle I have violated,” said Peterson in his email to Google upon discovering that he was locked out of his account. “I have not violated any terms that I am aware of and have not misused my account.”

The psychology professor has over 350,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, which he uses as a platform to post his lectures, interviews, and Q&As.

The Lefty principle that words only mean what the Lefties want them to mean for only as long as they want them to mean it.

Kind of like what the meaning of is is.

This sounds too stupid to be real. There has to be more to the story.

The professor came under scrutiny in 2016 after criticizing a bill which could potentially criminalize using the wrong gender pronoun to identify someone. That bill is now law.

"Canada" is American for stupid snowflake land.

I'm old enough to remember when an American company punishing the speech of a foreigner was considered xenophobic... among other things....times have changed quite a bit.
