Canada Passes Law Criminalizing Use Of Wrong Gender Pronouns

Authored by Rob Shimshock via The Daily Caller,

Canada passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training.

Canada’s Senate passed Bill C-16, which puts “gender identity” and “gender expression” into both the country’s Human Rights Code, as well as the hate crime category of its Criminal Code by a vote of 67-11, according to LifeSiteNews. The bill now only needs royal assent from the governor general.

“Great news,” announced Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister. “Bill C-16 has passed the Senate – making it illegal to discriminate based on gender identity or expression. #LoveisLove.”

Proud that Bill C-16 has passed in the Senate,” said Jody Wilson-Raybould, the country’s attorney general and minister of justice. “All Canadians should feel #FreeToBeMe.”

[There’s an argument] that transgender identity is too subjective a concept to be enshrined in law because it is defined as an individual’s deeply felt internal experience of gender,” said Grant Mitchell, a conservative senator, in November 2016. “Yet we, of course, accept outright that no one can discriminate on the basis of religion, and that too is clearly a very deeply subjective and personal feeling.”

Jordan Peterson, a professor at the University of Toronto, and one of the bill’s fiercest critics, spoke to the Senate before the vote, insisting that it infringed upon citizens’ freedom of speech and institutes what he views as dubious gender ideology into law.

“Compelled speech has come to Canada,” stated Peterson. “We will seriously regret this.”

 

“[Ideologues are] using unsuspecting and sometimes complicit members of the so-called transgender community to push their ideological vanguard forward,” said the professor to the Senate in May.

 

“The very idea that calling someone a term that they didn’t choose causes them such irreparable harm that legal remedies should be sought [is] an indication of just how deeply the culture of victimization has sunk into our society.”

Peterson has previously pledged not to use irregular gender pronouns and students have protested him for his opposition to political correctness.

WATCH:

“This tyrannical bill is nothing but social engineering to the nth degree, all in the name of political correctness,” Jeff Gunnarson, vice president of Campaign Life Toronto, a pro-life political group in Canada, told LifeSiteNews.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the director of communications for the House of Commons, but received no comment in time for publication.

Where's the outrage over male genital mutilation? Are folks really concerned about the chopping up of kids' genitals or is it just part of this "I hate everything Muslim" fad?Why rage against Ahmed when it's likely that your own friends and family hack up children? In regard to the topic at hand it is not necessary to use pronouns or even proper names. Just say "the individual in the front seat, second row" or "the individual in the red outfit."

This is gonna take a lot of careful parsing. Some terms like "faggot" and "weenie wagger" are kinda gender biased but so many like "cock gobbler", "cock sucker", "gooby smoocher" or "ass clown"  or even "turd burgler" are more gender ambiguous these days. Especially for LGBT!Even terms like douchebag our douch-nozzle are a bit hard to pin down. Especially for LGBT! Along with just plain old "fucker" which could either be a guy or a "person" with a strap-on and thence once again pretty unclear. It seems that "fucknose" would be pretty safe as long as it's just your nose that's fucking or being fucked but anatomically it's kinda hard to just involve the nose without the rest of the body involved.To extend this thought (pun intended) we have "dickwad" which doesn't necessarily refer to dicks (but rather a wad associated with same) or "dick stick" which could be a stick which is associated with a dick (for whatever purpose) or it could be something into which one sticks a dick. Which once again could be a he or a she or a xe or a tree. Gender is not necessarily implicated unless there are trees with gender. The same could be could for "scum sack", "cum bucket", "cum catcher", "jizz magnet", cocktail jizzlers, swizzle-ticklers and French Backstraps which if you know what those are you aren't about to admit it.But anyways, are we gonna have to come up with gender neutral or LGBT friendly forms of every single one of these time honored titles  and appelations? Cause like.....that sounds like a great job for me. Where do I apply?

Ann odd fact of life: as a young man I sang the Canadian National Anthem as a pledge right around the time I personally repudiated the USA Pledge Of Allegiance. So I gave my word and vow to fight for Canada were she ever threatened. That was because at the time, the USA was (and probably still is) the number one existential threat to Canada. With Iceland running a close second.This was during the first Treudeu administration.This one brings a new threat. And it's a serious threat. But I might have to stand-by on this one. Not sure how to advise you but I can't justify going to Canada to beat up on a bunch of confused kids and homosexuals. And you guys are Cannucks. You are a very civil and decent people, not at all prone to violence. Except the deep woods Quebequa who one is tempted to write off as a cantankerous minority.Except if you get out of the woods and into the city of Quebec. And then you find out they have these radient and cellestial GODDESSES.Deep woods Quebequa women look like the trees they live in. And they are more dangerous than the men they force to impregnate them.At any rate, Canada you are on your own. I wish I could help but this time I can't.

I would like one of your Tee Shirt franchises. The ones where we print the acceptible terms on them so that those in the lurch can spot one of our tees and know what to say. We will have to date/serialize them as court challenges will reverse previous accpetible terms thereby rendering older issues of our tees obsolute and illegal thus boasting sales of new ones.

I've decided I identify as an Apache Helicopter. I am helisexual.You may refer as Apache as a pronoun (she) and Helicopters for posessive (hers) -- they evem rhyme.  anyhow, is the title even correct?it's illegal to descriminate based on gender pronouns... e.g. not hire someone because they want to be a 'ze'but calling someone a 'he' instead of a 'ze' is not descrimintation... discrimination requires you 'treat' someone negatively and different. if I just refuse to call someone a 'ze' randomly on a street and call them a 'he' there's no way that's going to be discrimination because we have no actionable relationship.it's a sleepery slope but i think this is mostly about employment rights or rights at institutions/organizations... not how people ppl talk to one another .. in the same way, refusing to refer to someone as a Mormon, for example, is not discrimination, but not hiring them for that reason is.

To give everyone an idea how absurb this bill is here is a list of the acceptable pronouns.  Imagine trying to read a novel that observed these pronouns or observing these pronouns in everyday conversation. He/SheziesieeyveteyeHim/HerzimsieemverteremHis/HerzirhireirvistemeirHis/HerszishirseirsversterseirsHimeself/Herselfzieselfhirselfeirselfverselfterselfemself

We really are in the matrix folks..  When stuff like this happens its easy to see there are forces at work in this world that are not altruisticThis bill was passed without the consent of the Candian people.  Same goes for carbon taxes that will be used by the globalists to further enslave us.  It should be readily apparent to everyone now that Trudeau is a globalist sock puppet.

Just turn it around on them.  Invent your own pronoun and file a complaint against any SJW that does not comply when addressing you.  Demand that they be arrested and prosecuted for violating your civil rights.  Oh, and make sure your pronoun is something that upsets them. From this point forward I will no longer tolerate being referred to as "he" as it does not adequately represent my identity.  I now insist on the pronoun of "white-male-hetero" since that is what I identify as.Other suggestions?

Actually, fuck you on that one. I don't like His Handsomeness' policies, or his continuation of his pere's policies, or his reneging on key campaign promises (that got him elected, though not by me) but literally stepping into the ring in front of an audience to go toe to toe with an enemy takes more guts than you'll ever have, I'd wager.I mean, have you even watched that fight against the unelected coke-head 'Conservative' senator? JT made him bleed. In my opinion Canada's PM would waste the POTUS in a boxing match, even if Mr.Trump was 30 years younger, no?Your Daddy couldn't even beat up a Cuck Daddy, sad.

You can take anything and, through the use of semantics, make it appear to be exactly the opposite of what it is. The bull sh*t justifications these freaks use to explain their social engineering insanity would gag a maggot. I don't think anyone's buying this crap except the snowflakes. Globalists seem quite intent upon backing the sensible population into a corner... probably not their best strategy.

The Brokeback Mounties will love this law.  The latest "crime" the Fearless Fuzzdicks are investigating is someone doing a burnout over a gay pride rainbow cross walk.  Normally they just act as baggage  porters for the illegal immigraants walking across the border.

We don't need to bomb canaduh, we just need to air drop all the illegals crossing our southern border to the other side of our northern border.  Let the socialists pay for the whole world with newly minted fiat currency that their grandkids will owe, with interest, to mother grubermint.
