Jordan Peterson and the Crisis in Masculinity
Here's an intriguing Channel 4 News interview with Jordan Peterson on the crisis in masculinity, the gender pay gap, campus protests and postmodernism, based on his new book. It's a proper debate with two smart, thoughtful people on an important subject. (There's a great moment at around 22 minutes, when Cathy Newman asks Peterson why he thinks his right to free speech trumps a trans person's right not to be offended; his reply is that Newman's right to pursue truth, in this very interview, trumps Peterson's right not to be offended—and that is exactly as it should be.) The whole interview is well worth a look.
