Re: Epic number of downvotes

And if I understood correctly, all this happened over what can be qualified as 'compelled speech' in relation to gender pronouns. Exactly the kind of thing Jordan B.Peterson was warning us about.

I find this completely insane. It's the 'Emperor's New Clothes' all over again - everyone knows the king is naked, but nobody dares to say so lest they lose their head. I really hoped we human beings had learned our lesson by now so as to not let things like this happen (i.e.; being ruled by fear), but it seems obvious now that we haven't.
