Ferno can now be jailed...

...if he doesn't use government approved speech:
Canada passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training.

Canada’s Senate passed Bill C-16, which puts “gender identity” and “gender expression” into both the country’s Human Rights Code, as well as the hate crime category of its Criminal Code by a vote of 67-11, according to LifeSiteNews. The bill now only needs royal assent from the House of Commons to pass into law.

“Great news,” announced Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister. “Bill C-16 has passed the Senate – making it illegal to discriminate based on gender identity or expression. #LoveisLove.”

“Proud that Bill C-16 has passed in the Senate,” said Jody Wilson-Raybould, the country’s attorney general and minister of justice. “All Canadians should feel #FreeToBeMe.”

“[There’s an argument] that transgender identity is too subjective a concept to be enshrined in law because it is defined as an individual’s deeply felt internal experience of gender,” said Grant Mitchell, a conservative senator, in November 2016. “Yet we, of course, accept outright that no one can discriminate on the basis of religion, and that too is clearly a very deeply subjective and personal feeling.”

Jordan Peterson, a professor at the University of Toronto, and one of the bill’s fiercest critics, spoke to the Senate before the vote, insisting that it infringed upon citizens’ freedom of speech and institutes what he views as dubious gender ideology into law.

“Compelled speech has come to Canada,” stated Peterson. “We will seriously regret this.”

“[Ideologues are] using unsuspecting and sometimes complicit members of the so-called transgender community to push their ideological vanguard forward,” said the professor to the Senate in May. “The very idea that calling someone a term that they didn’t choose causes them such irreparable harm that legal remedies should be sought [is] an indication of just how deeply the culture of victimization has sunk into our society.”

Peterson has previously pledged not to use irregular gender pronouns and students have protested him for his opposition to political correctness.

“This tyrannical bill is nothing but social engineering to the nth degree, all in the name of political correctness,” Jeff Gunnarson, vice president of Campaign Life Toronto, a pro-life political group in Canada, told LifeSiteNews.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the director of communications for the House of Commons, but received no comment in time for publication.

This is literally a "slippery slope." Your rights are being stripped away in the name of sensitivity Ferno. Get used to it.

Congratulations it’s a boy errr girl no errrrr babyself.

Yea, that's the ticket.

................

Awwww…look at that…the poor little thing has a penis, maybe we should remove that so that babyself has a better chance of picking its gender when ready.

And we better advise the parent/s not to give babyself a gender specific name…for gods sake!

I saw that a couple days ago.

Honestly, I'm not scared in the slightest. And I imagine that this law will get a lot of pushback in and out of the courts.

Should be fun if I do end up getting charged with this. I'd give the courts (and human rights tribunal) a real run for their money.

What about the law makes using the wrong gender pronouns illegal? The argument as it is laid out so far seems to be

1) Jordan Peterson doesn't want to use some gender pronouns
2) Jordan Peterson is against the law
3) Therefore, the law makes not using some gender pronouns illegal

Because I haven't read the law, I don't have any direct evidence that you are misinterpreting the law either. But perhaps one of the detractors of this law in this thread could actually lay out the case, if there is one. So far this is just a thread about Jordan Peterson.
