Jordan Peterson is back again criticizing Elliot Page’s transition, after his controversial ban from Twitter for tagging the trans actor’s doctor a “criminal physician.” Talking in a virtual interview, the former psychology professor and author pointed out Page’s shirtless appearance on Esquire’s summer issue last month and said, "See, I would've left Ellen Page alone if she hadn't been parading her new abs in a fashion magazine.” The 60-year-old Peterson took issue with the 'Umbrella Academy' actor who showed off his abs on the cover, claiming it would make kids think they’re transgender too.

On July 8, Peterson in a conversation with a YouTube channel called ‘Secular Talk,’ elaborated and explained to Kyle Kulinski why Page remains the focus of his anger. “How many children do you think she has convinced to convert, one? Thousand?,” he questioned while constantly misgendering the 35-year-old Page by using his old name and pronouns.

However, Kulinski seemed to disagree with Peterson’s claims in the interview about Page’s influence on children. He said, "I think with the trans community, it’s very similar to the gay community where back in the day, when that first became a big deal, people were like, ‘Oh, if we talk about it, whether it’s in magazines or whatever, we’re promoting children to go down that path." He further said, "But what has really happened is that people are who they are. They are gay. So I don’t think you encourage people to do that."

For obvious reasons, Peterson got annoyed and replied, "No, that’s not what happened. You’re all wrong. That’s not right.” The psychologist continued to rage against the actor on Kyle’s podcast as he said, “For every one person of that sort that we hypothetically save, we doom a thousand more as a consequence of confusion and social contagion. Often, when you introduce social confusion, you can produce a psychogenic epidemic. Generally, it’s adolescent females who are more susceptible to it. It’s absolutely and definitely the case that we’ve doomed thousands of kids to brutal, mutilating surgery and premature sterility and we’ve done that on the altar of our hypothetical moral virtue and compassion.”

Transphobic tweet gets Peterson banned

Peterson was suspended from Twitter after tweeting that Page “had her breasts removed by a criminal physician” on June 22. The tweet was posted on the same day that season three of the Netflix show ‘The Umbrella Academy’ was released. Netflix integrated Page’s transition into the show and changed his character’s name from Vanya to Viktor. Twitter flagged Peterson’s tweet, tagging it “violated Twitter’s hate speech rules.” The ban got criticized by Elon Musk, who said the platform has gone “way too far in squashing dissenting opinions.”
