Peterson has said “It would depend on how you ask.” Peterson has said he doesn’t believe that being transgender is a real or actual thing. Peterson has said that it’s some kind of expression of Marxism to want to be called something other than the prior establish he and she (whatever the fuck that means). My “in other words” is an intelligence synthesis of those three statements made by him.

I’m going to seriously doubt that you know any trans people, Clint — other than perhaps ones you have disagreed with on-line. The trans people I know in person are all people who just want to be left alone to live their lives. The fact that they have to spend time defending themselves is because they are under attack much of the time.
