Conservative psychologist Jordan Peterson offended the gods of Twitter with a comment opposing gender transition surgery for actor Elliot Page, earning a suspension for it, and is now saying he’d “rather die” than delete the tweet.
“Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician,” he had tweeted. Twitter proceeded to inform him that he had violated their “hateful conduct” policy and would need to remove the tweet to be granted access to his account again.
“A few days ago, I penned an irritated tweet in response to one of the latest happenings on the increasingly heated culture war front in response to the decision of an actress (actor) named Ellen (Elliot) Page. I am employing this awkward and impossible multiple-naming style because it is now apparently mandatory — and probably doing it wrong, nonetheless, as ‘you’re doing it wrong’ is the whole point of what has been made mandatory — but also to make a point,” Petersen commented in a video posted Friday.
“I have essentially been banned from Twitter as a consequence. I say banned, although technically I have been suspended. But the suspension will not be lifted unless I delete the ‘hateful’ tweet in question, and I would rather die than do that. And hopefully, it will not come to that, although who the hell knows in these increasingly strange days?” he continued.

Petersen was just getting warmed up on the subject.
“Let’s take this apart. First, it is clearly the case that I did not ‘promote violence against’ or ‘threaten’ anyone with my missive,” he went on. “So that leaves the arguably lesser sin of ‘harass.’ Let’s assume that was the crime, and, further, harassment on the basis of ‘gender identity.’ Since Twitter did not do me the favor of actually specifying my crime, we, unfortunately, have to guess at why this has occurred — and that’s actually a big problem in and of itself, and also indicative of the utter carelessness of the Twitter organization with regard to the propriety of its own censorial actions.”
The insanity continues at Twitter. @jordanbpeterson has been suspended for this tweet about Ellen Page. He just told me he will “never” delete the tweet.

“I should at least know exactly what I did wrong if I am required to ‘acknowledge that’ my ‘Tweet violated the Twitter Rules,'” Peterson argued.
“What rules, you sons of bitches? Exactly? Precisely? Because such things matter when the accusations start flying,” he angrily vented.
“So what did I say that might constitute harassment? Many things, hypothetically. Let’s begin with ‘Remember when pride was a sin?’ Although that is merely a factual statement because under the old rules, applicable even a decade ago, pride was a sin, and had been recognized as perhaps the cardinal sin for thousands of years previously. It still might be regarded as unacceptable to the authoritarian moralists who now insist, for example, that we celebrate Pride Month – not hour or day or week, but month- and who have literally called it PRIDE Month instead of LGBT+ Month. I don’t regard PRIDE as a virtue; it has been classically regarded as a sin,” Peterson elaborated.
He went on to dissect the perceived offense of criticizing gender transition at length, spanking woke leftists and confused individuals who choose to cut off pieces of their bodies rather than embrace their actual physical/biological identity.
Wow. @jordanbpeterson got a twitter strike. No more twitter until he deletes the tweet. Definitely not a free speech platform at the moment @elonmusk pic.twitter.com/YuBTwnjz5W

“And so it was impossible to communicate what had happened to my audience without, apparently, running afoul of the impossible and absurd rules that now hypothetically govern morality itself in the days of the degenerated postmodern and Marxist ethos that we must still, no matter how impossible it is, abide by — or else,” Peterson contended.
The conservative firebrand then tore into physicians who conduct such surgeries, eviscerating them and leaving their questionable character in his wake.
“And I’m not taking down that tweet, or ‘acknowledging’ that my tweet ‘violated the Twitter rules.’ Up yours, woke moralists. We’ll see who cancels who. And I think, as well, that you woke folks at Twitter, working so hard to improve the world by so carelessly censoring -under the morally superior guise of ‘regulating hate’ – have no idea what a tangled web you’ve entangled yourself in. Again. Yet again,” he railed.
“I’m really starting to think you’re just not that bright,” Peterson astutely concluded.

In 2020, Page came out as transgender and said he would now go by the name Elliot. Peterson is being slammed for “deadnaming” the 25-year-old “Umbrella Academy” actor by offended leftists.
