Receiving comments is not in the same category as people getting their voting rights suppressed because of the color of their skin.

I meant that Peterson elevated his concerns to the point where he demanded special exemptions under the human rights law; those were not justified. I do think his university over-reacted in sending him that letter, but again, it doesn’t justify changing how human rights laws are written or implemented.

Democracy is pretty cool. We should try it some time. Voting rights, science policy, political communication and grassroots activism.
