Faculty at the University of Toronto are up in arms following a professor’s refusal to use ‘genderless pronouns.’
According to them Jordan Peterson, the professor in question, could spark a rise in ‘hate speech’ on campus.
That’s a bit confusing, especially since mandatory ‘genderless pronoun’ use is relatively new in Canada; it wasn’t a thing until the country’s government began moving to pass Bill C-16, also known as the ‘Transgender Rights Bill.’
The bill broadens the definition of hate speech to include not recognizing someone’s preferred gender pronoun.

Halloween can be scary, but it can also be... offensive?

Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people,” the school administration wrote in a blog post. “If you are troubled by an incident that does occur, please know that there are many resources available.”

Duke University is famous for its science and engineering programs, as well as its dominance in college basketball.
Now, it may also become known as a great place for men to gather and contemplate why they’re such horrible people.
The Duke Men’s Project, launched this month and hosted by the campus Women’s Center, offers a nine-week program for “male-identified” students that discusses male privilege, patriarchy, “the language of dominance,” rape culture, pornography, machismo and other topics.

Ah, I remember the halcyon days when our nation was guided by the tenets found in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. When the First Amendment guaranteed a citizens right to speech and religious liberty – even if that speech or those religious beliefs were unpopular. Sadly, in Obama’s America, an America ruled by politically correct liberal fascists who are eerily reminiscent of the religious police that roam the streets of Iran and Saudi Arabia, these precious liberties are disappearing before our very eyes.
The latest example comes to us from North Carolina State University where Christian students are being forced to challenge a draconian (and unjust) school policy that bars them from speaking about their faith.
