The whole debate is silly because it centers a professor who doesn’t understand how the law works and his slippery slope argument and his political axe-grinding over actual discrimination and harm transgender people face that the legislation is intended to prevent. Like I’m talking about transgender people who get kicked out of housing by their landlords. That’s who the law protects. The attention Peterson has brought to this issue is all about him, not protecting other people, and he never responded coherently to the civil rights experts who told him he was wrong.

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