The Continuing Curious Case of Wilfrid Laurier University and Lindsay Shepherd

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a piece of the rather heinous treatment of a student teacher by a Canadian University for daring to have an open discussion about gender pro-nouns, worst of all playing a video by academic Jordan Peterson.

She was hauled before a private tribunal and if it wasn’t for the fact that she recorded the inquisition she was subjected to then she could have quite easily lost or job or have been vilified for this act when needing references for future employment.

The short of this whole tribunal against her was the there was a complaint(s) made against her, of which she was not allowed to know who or indeed the content of the complaint.

It is now being reported that no evidence of any formal complaint was actually made against Ms Shepherd.

At this present moment in time it would seem that those with a vested interest in diversity and equity, at least of specific thought, would be the ones doing the bullying.

In related UK news an Oxford teacher investigated for ‘misgendering’ to sue school – the teacher in question is pushing his “religious beliefs” as a mode of defence, which in some cases it would be.  Personally speaking, he just misspoke and it is a school dithering about being named and shamed and losing funding, that is causing this needless shit storm.

It seems we expect schools to teach everything to kids these days, except common sense.

 

Thanks for reading.
