Why You Shouldn’t Use Transgender Pronouns

You don’t need to be a psychology professor to realize than an attempt to transplant pronouns from the body to the mind is an attempt to destroy our ability to communicate.

Perhaps the name Dr. Jordan Peterson is unfamiliar to you. It was to me until I happened upon his recent YouTube video, “Fear and the Law,” in which he calmly and methodically dissects political correctness, with particular reference to Bill C-16 (a Canadian bill which would add “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination).

Peterson is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, so it’s a fair bet that he knows a good deal about the workings of the human mind.

    I have an objection about neuter. In English the neuter doesn’t exist but in German and Latin they do. And there are neuter pronouns

    I don’t know what’s wrong with “it”.

    How about because there are only two genders and he and she pretty much covers it already.

    Just refer to everyone by their name, ID# or some other unique identifier. Or just last name as is the custom in some places.
