Twitter has censored Canadian psychologist and bestselling creator Dr. Jordan Peterson after he criticized transgender surgical procedure and referred to transgender actress Ellen Web page, who now goes by “Elliot” and identifies as a male, by her authentic identify.
Peterson’s offending publish was responding to a tweet from the account of the New York Publish about Web page: ” Elliot Web page is ‘proud’ to introduce trans character on ‘Umbrella Academy.’”
Web page, a lady, stated she recognized as a person in December 2020. The next yr, she turned the primary transgender “man” to seem on the duvet of TIME.

In response, Peterson tweeted “Keep in mind when satisfaction was a sin? And Ellen Web page simply had her breasts eliminated by a felony doctor.”
Twitter swiftly locked Peterson’s account, compelling him to delete the tweet to regain entry. In line with a publish from Peterson’s frequent collaborator, Dave Rubin, the psychologist has stated he’ll “by no means” delete the tweet.

“The madness continues at Twitter,” stated Rubin. “[Jordan Peterson] has been suspended for this tweet about Ellen Web page. He simply informed me he’ll “by no means” delete the tweet. Paging [Elon Musk]…”
In its message to Peterson, Twitter stated his account had been locked for “hateful conduct,” together with the now-common sight of Twitter’s guidelines on the matter: “it’s possible you’ll not promote violence in opposition to, threaten, or harass different folks on the premise of race, ethnicity, nationwide origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender id, spiritual affiliation, age, incapacity, or critical illness.”
It’s unclear whether or not the censorship of Peterson’s account was brought on by the bestselling creator utilizing Ellen Web page’s authentic identify, criticizing the notion of “satisfaction,” or calling the surgeon who operated on Web page a felony — or all three.
