Jordan Peterson’s Grant Application Mysteriously Denied

From here:

University of Toronto psychology professor Dr. Jordan Peterson has had a federal research grant application denied for the first time in his long and distinguished academic career.

And he’s certain that the rejection from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the government agency that supports post-secondary research, is linked to the controversy surrounding his stand on gender-neutral pronouns such as “zie” and “zher,” and the modern notion of gender as being fluid.

That his application was also rated so poorly is telling, he said, meaning that if the proposal had just missed the mark, it might have been a credible critique, but the proposal failed abysmally.

Hmmm. This does tend to support the March for Science position – science is political.

    Time to crowdfund.

    Yay me for stating the blindingly obvious. Rebel Media started an Indiegogo campaign for him, and it’s exceeded its goals in the space of a few days (with about a month to go). If only all research fund-raising were that easy. If the vindictive idiots who denied his funding had a clue, they would have just given him as little as possible as slowly as possible, rather than trying to teach him a lesson. Backlash is a thing, folks.
