Canada: trans language

A new Bill in Canada which aims to prohibit discrimination against gender expression – the gender a person presents themselves as – was heavily criticised by a professor of psychology in November.

Dr Jordan Peterson, of the University of Toronto, said the controversial Bill C-16 could result in him being charged with a hate crime for refusing to use gender-neutral pronouns such as ‘ze’ and ‘zir’ instead of ‘he’ and ‘she’ at work. He said: ‘It’s the first time I’ve seen in our legislative history where people are attempting to make us speak their language.’
