A Conservative professor named Jordan Peterson who rejects the left’s demands on transgender people and pronouns was recently grilled by a politically correct British TV host. She asks him what right he has to offend transgender people and he totally turns the tables on her.
The Daily Caller has the transcript:
A professor left a left-wing TV host speechless Tuesday after the host asked him why his right to free speech should take priority over transgender individuals’ right not to be offended.
Channel 4 presenter Cathy Newman posed a question to University of Toronto professor Jordan B. Peterson, reported The Spectator.
“Why should your right to freedom of speech trump a trans person’s right not to be offended?” asked Newman.
“Because in order to be able to think, you have to risk being offensive,” Peterson said. “I mean, look at the conversation we’re having right now. You’re certainly willing to risk offending me in the pursuit of truth. Why should you have the right to do that? It’s been rather uncomfortable.”
She is left basically speechless after the exchange. Watch below:

The professor is absolutely right. That’s why the host can’t answer.
