  • She's so out of her depth intellectually it's painful but delicious to listen to......and like every feminist plays the victim from a position of amazing privilege over and over and over again.

  • Women changing their names after marriage can be interpreted as a transfer of property if you want to see it like that. But how about seeing it as an acceptance sign? A statement that from now on you’re as much important to us as if you were born in this family and we want everyone else to acknowledge that. Peterson got it spot right when he said this lady was prone to see everything under only one lens.

  • She’s so pathetic no original thought just rambling the current trendy rhetoric. I would never buy her book as I’m sure there’d be nothing original in it. Jordan is brave enough to speak his own truth and takes the higher ground. GQ get a interviewer who doesn’t make u look like ur so weak pandering to idiots.

  • *FUN FACT:* The interviewer (Helen Lewis) *cheated* on her now ex-husband and is *divorced*. She is a bit vague about the details, but admits that within 2 years of her marriage she "fell in love with someone else" (in other words she cheated on her husband).

    • Here I was thinking I was the only one scouring the internet for a quality feminist bash. Even if she loses the alimony case she still got a free degree from Oxford. I'd argue the latter is more valuable, but I guess that's a result of my tyrannically patriachical tendencies.

  • The exchanging of last names of the bride is not about ownership, it's about membership. Women are socially mobile, and men not so much, as a generalization, so it's only natural that the female would be the one to move into and connect two families. Understanding how men and women behave in general by just being observant of others make it obvious. As a symbolic representation of an ideal male is one who sits in one place, and a general area of operation, and the brunt of their socialization is via their family. They sit down and produce something of value, or even stand up and produce in the case of farming etc. But there is an inclination toward a minimal necessary territory in which they will operate, it's clearly an extension of hunting/territorial instincts, the act of production is analogous to the hunt, the workspace is the hunting ground, female instincts are more socially focused, they mobilize and spread information in the social structure, of course it would make sense then that it be the female who serves as an Interface between families. It's a two part formula for society, without men creating, and constructing we all live in cave tribes, without women connecting and creating the social network we devolve to small tribes at best, and they would be frail small familial tribes at that, given to constant conflict with other tribes, so the two forces counterbalance entropic forces, and allow for growth into the inf. Dimension, or maybe you could call it good, or progress, but in reality we are talking about constructive interference that can be expressed as two wheels that would spin in place erratically, in opposite directions of spin meeting at a plane representative of reality, and thus finding traction, and stability for forward movement, or two partially inverse standing waveforms constructively forming a forward propagating wave, something like that where these two forces would usually self terminate in a vacuum, but by the cancelling forces of thier Interface prevent the other from reaching termination.

  • I've followed his career for a while. I feel the same about him as a baby in pain. I've heard hundreds of infants in the office in pain. They are in so much pain, crying, just so much pure truth and emotion that you want to adopt thier pain so you can allow them to be pure and you can trudge along and help out it hurts. He isn't a pure being by any means but he is scratching for every inch that it makes me want to help so it helps others. That's what all of societies should be doing.

  • 10 minutes into this and several things I have realised Jordan is a man of great intellect, and the interviewer , has a real problem with her bias against the male and the lack of intellect that's needed in this sort of debate. I felt she spoilt the whole thing , a bit like Yoko Ono thinking she could hold her own on stage with Jon Lennon , , A perfect example of that is what happened when Frank Zappa invited Jon Lennon on stage to play with him. Look it up, my example is on you tube. I defy any body to watch it in its entirety first time round

  • Okay Rush Limbaugh is not alt right. He's right he's been around for 30 years he's a conservative. Who reveres the Constitution. America first or americanism. He values our Republic. And conservative values. Alt-right isn't distinguished by any of those things. And he's right to say you need to Define all right. And what is just plain conservatism. Middle America is conservative. So you can see the media, mainstream media narrative is in her grouping conservatives together with extremist. It's like antifa is the Democratic Party. Actually that can be very true today in 2021. The Democratic party as we've known it has whittled Away by leftist Marxist communist principles. And the moderate Democrats are subject to that and are held hostage buy those extreme viewpoints in ideas. The fact that the Democrat Party or leftist or leftist extremes have not spoke against the violence are the antifa and BLM movement.

It's refreshing to watch this interview, because even though they are pretty forceful, Peterson more so than Lewis, neither plays the offended card. They seem to actually hear each other. Even if I disagreed with both of them, I'd still enjoy this exchange!

  • Maleness or femaleness is not be seen in the absolute.. They are compllimentary.The problem with our men is that they've been told not to embrace their masculinity. Because it makes them dominant and mean. And women are told not to embrace their femininity because it makes them weak. Which is created a very messed up Society. We have the value of the masculine and feminine characteristics within us. God has female characteristics as nurturing, caring loving, God also has masculine characteristics protector, father heart Etc we have been created in the image of God. We don't need to walk worrying about these current thoughts or trends. We need to walk by the power of the Holy Spirit. Guided by the word of God. There's so much freedom! What a horrible life always be categorizing every situation every person ever encounter everything on whether it's gender dominated, racist, privilege Etc
