University of Toronto Professor Jordan Peterson has made quite the name for himself for being outspoken against “gender-neutral pronouns” and warning against a bill that would criminalize not honoring one’s pronoun preference — and he’s about to bring that controversy to Harvard University’s campus.
A new student organization on campus headed by a former Harvard College dean plans to push the boundaries of the administration’s “tolerance”.
Conor Healy, the student leading the group, made the following statement to the campus newspaper:
“Some people see it as stirring the pot. I mean, the very fact that people see it that was is part of the reason why we these events are important, because we have fundamental disagreements, I suppose, with a lot of people about what it means to be a student on this campus.”
Healy emphasized a 27-year-old administration vow that endorses the freedom of campus groups to “hold speaking events without interruption,” and his organization wants to test if the university administrators will honor it.
It will be interesting to see how Harvard administrators react to the controversial event. We will update with any developments.
