Using the right pronoun? Better make sure or else you'll be arrested in Canada!

You can have whatever opinion on pronouns, but one thing Peterson is guilty of is perpetuating the false narrative that you can be arrested for using the wrong pronoun.

They're not going to create any of these laws. If they did, they'd be creating a legally protected class; complete with segregation, subjugation and discrimination -- and that just does not happen here in Canada. It would be ruled unconstitutional immediately.
