Re: “Jordan B. Peterson’s transphobic, pseudo-academic, alt-right attitude deserves protesting

". . . echoing the sentiments of many an Anglo-Saxon after the Norman invasion of 1066." I think you just made his argument for him. Of course, few enough are familiar with history beyond 4 centuries ago, it has less impact than comparing it to the sentiments of the Native Americans after Europeans invaded.
"In his defense, Peterson is a professor of psychology, not linguistics. If you were to ask to any trans person, they will probably tell you that Petersons principled stance against gender-affirming pronouns stems more from his personal biases than from any well-thought-out, academic position on prescriptivist approaches to grammar." You're using that phrase wrong, since the rest of the sentence following "In his defense" is an attempt to discredit his point about authoritarians directing control through dictating language. Of the trans-gendered people of which you spoke, how many are psychologists and able to diagnose that his "stance . . . stems more from his personal biases than from any well-thought-out, academic position?" I would suggest you read up on the SapirWhorf hypothesis.
I don't even know how to respond to the rest of this article; you go completely off the rails after the third paragraph.
I will say this however, if you consider yourself a journalist, then actually do some research and some investigating. This is less a piece of journalism than a hit piece on the level of a high school burn book, full of rumors, hearsay, and insults. (Were you a plastic in high school?)
