    It's "a bit of an assumption" for me to think that when Peterson describes his Patreon support as "overwhelmingly successful" he means that it's raised a substantial amount of money?

    Tell me, Watcher2 - what other interpretation would be more reasonable, when speaking about one's success with a platform that is used specifically to raise money?

    I saw a count of followers. So like you, I made some assumptions, but unlike you, I saw the potential for support in the form of people agreeing with the guy and supporting his theories and ideas. So, tell us, why would your first thoughts be towards something grubby like money rather than something good and positive like moral support? Would it have anything to do with Peterson not supporting the kind of bunkum you vomit on our screens?

    Do you know what Patreon is? It's a platform people use to raise money.

    My impression about them is the opposite. Quite cold people generally and not due to the weather

    I've made my views very clear, if you were so sure of your opinions you wouldn't be concerned with mine.

    But you haven't made your views clear at all, despite having been asked to do so several times.

    The OP lists fifteen terms. You've addressed perhaps four of them (three of which you say you have no issue with).

    I find it odd that these folks talk about things like "the LGBT community" as if it is a community that is grounded in some commonality.

    Now we're at the point where it's all very mix-and-match - everyone just picks from the massive set of initials that relate to these various groups. No doubt they upset some sub-group in the process, no matter how hard they try to be inclusive.

    Teachers federation conducts 'LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP' training | Daily Mail Online

    "The Canadian Elementary Teachers Federation (ETFO) of Ontario hosted a LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP inclusiveness training session on June 6.

    The acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual and Polyamorous."
    Oh no - some teachers in a different country attended a workshop designed to help people make things easier for oppressed groups, whatever shall we do?

    Right wing bigots are the most easily triggered snowflakes of them all.
