I appreciate your thoughtful response but if Peterson encourages people to learn from others and assume they may know something that you don’t then why are all women who try to talk about how society has harmed them“crazy harpies?” Why won’t he pay attention to the very real and statistically verified overwhelming evidence? Why can’t he imagine that they have a different experience than he does and that he can learn something from that? Because he is too “close minded and looking to criticize and attack without rationality as the guiding force.” Because he is narcissitically wrapped up in his own ideas and has no empathy for anyone whose narrative doesn’t fit in with that. There is zero rationality to saying there is no racism or no patriarchy. They are self-evident parts of our society that harms it. And as any Jungian ought to know, you can’t heal something that you won’t acknowledge exists.

I can see where you might not agree with the premises of this article but I didn’t find anything malicious in it and I thought the author supported his assertions clearly. I’m not sure what you found offensive, other than the obvious.
