VIDEO: Jordan Peterson plays the hits, as remixed by Vic Berger

Well this picture turned out a little weird huh

By David Futrelle

For your viewing pleasure, a collection of Jordan Peterson’s maybe-not-so-finest moments, as curated by the always entertaining Vic Berger for Super Deluxe.

I’m thinking that socks need to be banned from the workplace for being too sexually suggestive.

I still do not know why this man is taken seriously.

All he has done is paint men as victims…which pretty much debunks his whole “snowflake victim mentality” schtick.

Plus he looks so bored with himself, he’s about ready to nod off.

Haven’t there been times been historically when men wore make up and high heels as well? How would Jordles explain this?

Wow it must be really out of context so much so that literally every one of Jordan Peterson’s fans say that regardless of the awful quotes in question.

I think I remember this idiot saying that men are at women’s mercy because when we disagree with other men we can just resort violence but we aren’t allowed to with women.

Is this that guy who used to be a Feminist but turned to the Dark Side of The Force and wrote that “Myth of Male Power” or am I thinking of another guy?

I look forward to JP’s contributions to the campaign against compulsory high heels ‘n’ make-up dress codes for women. Any day now, I’m sure.

High heels make the pelvis tilt forward! Seriously though, there does seem to be a rage lurking underneath his mild academic demeanor and Kermit The Frog voice.

A politics reporter for NYT was tweeting Peterson’s talk at the Turning Points USA Young Women’s conference.

JP does his usual ramble about postmodernist Marxism ruining western civilisation (proving once again that he knows absolutely nothing about postmodernism or Marxism; for one, these two fields of thought do not tend to get along well). Then he goes all Thatcherite:

“View the world not as a collection of groups but as individuals, a group of individuals who are responsible for themselves and their families.”

He bemoans the fact that women are taught to value careers over raising families, worries about kids being confused by ‘gender fluidity’, and then:

Peterson says he’s been trying to guess why women have higher levels of anxiety and depression.
His guesses: 1) women are physically smaller 2) Sex is more dangerous for women, so they live more fearful after puberty 3) Women being more sensitive to threat is good for motherhood

Like PeeVee said, why is he taken seriously – and also, why is he seen as an original and interesting thinker? Okay, I’ll grant that the lobster thing was original (stupid and wildly ignorant, but original). But everything else is just tired old right-wing talking points dressed up in evo-psych. Or am I taking him out of context? 🙂

Women are socially pressured to dress purty and wear make-up. In some professions the absence of it would be considered odd; like PR. It in no way means they’re saying “have at me”; they’re just doing what society expects of them. If society, or your experience of it, says your worth as a woman must be projected through dressing nice and using make-up it does not mean you as person are committing visual crimes by inducing lust unfairly.

And it doesn’t stop even if you don’t dress up.

I read a lot of Quiverful accounts, women who have left a church who grew up home schooled in environments where women were expected to marry young, be home mothers, and have as many kids as they could. Girls were also taught they were lust creatures who could inflame men and they had to wear modest attire. One woman wrote about how hard it was to ride a pushbike in a Little House on the Prairie dress and wore bike shorts under it for comfort. The boys growing up were taught that women were sirens attempting to lure them, you had to marry within the group and you were then in charge of that woman as God intended. That had nothing to do with sexy lures; it was about producing compliant brood mares whose status as a person was secondary to her ho ho and womb capability.

What irks me is how men cannot put themselves in their place. All you have to ask is “would you be a woman if you could?” and they would say no because they wouldn’t have the balls to do it.

Another take on dear Jordan.

Maybe Americans will be lucky and Trump will bar Peterson from entering the US. After all he’s taking rubber chicken circuit gigs from hard working American right wingers.

Quiverfull and similar groups are, at base, motivated as much by white(-Protestant) supremacism as by misogyny. Their answer to so-called “white genocide” (and to secularism, Catholics, and Muslims) is, at least, relatively nonviolent to non-whites (though, not to white women), which is to try to outbreed brown (and non-Protestant) people.

I love the way that, in order to offer any kind of critique of Peterson, you need to read all his books, watch all of his 100+ hours of lectures and bloviating, listen to every interview, podcast, tweet, etc. that Peterson has ever farted out made.

But if you want to PRAISE Peterson, then you don’t need to do any of that. Want to consider him the authority on any given topic? You just need to have seen a couple of lobster memes and you’re definitely 100% right about how amazing and fantastic and brillant Peterson is. No need to look any further into what he says! Just throw more money and praise on him!

Why is “context” only important if you have something negative to say?

I am grateful to the Petersonians for making it so easy to resist finding Lobsterology appealing. To me, it’s like a gallon of spring water with a half cup of sewage added. I believe that most of what he’s saying is actually useful, if by no means novel or original. There are positive ideas in much of what he writes.

Then he goes blathering away about snakes, dragons, witches, post-modernist cultural Marxists, and Uncle Tom Cobley and all. A shocking, vulgar waste of talent and ability in pursuit of who knows what. I’ve seen a suggestion that Peterson has created a new variation on the theme Male Academic in his 50s Self-Destructs in Public that doesn’t involve female graduate students.

I’m guessing that the women in these meetings were having to rein themselves in quite a bit too. If any of them had punched him in the face, he’d have been sure to tell us about it. So they must have been applying superhuman levels of self-control.

Re: high heels, is he just unaware that they were invented for men, or is he hoping his audience are ignorant of that fact?

High heels ? I can’t believe a man who lives in North America (even a Canadian academic) seems to be oblivious of cowboy boots…

I think the first people to use high heels in the west were male royals and aristocrats. They were’n’t stiletto heels and not super high but thick heels that still made the wearer significantly taller, allowing him to literally look down on the populace.

This is a nice little overview about the history, and politics, of the high heel.

High heels are originally riding attire, to hold the stirrups. Then they became a fashion statement by men who didn’t ride all rhe time but wanted to look like dashing cavalrymen (also the origin of the necktie)

The old timey equivalent of men who have never been in the military driving a hummer.

Interesting. I did horse-riding as a kid, and riding boots and shoes have some heel to prevent the foot from slipping all the way through the stirrup and get stuck there if you fall. But they’re usually just about 2 cm tall. Alan’s link says higher heels are good if you’re gonna stand up in the stirrups and fire off arrows from a bow (which obviously modern riders don’t really do…). Never thought about this before.

As I understand it, higher heels make standing in the stirrups to rope cattle easier, too.

Pants became a core men’s fashion that way too (emulating cavalry). Until the horse became important in warfare, men wore kilts, togas, and other things that are basically skirts and dresses by any other name. In areas where the horse was introduced late, or never much relied on militarily, this persisted (notably, Scotland, where the terrain aided in defense but hindered horses in many places, and by the time the horse was seeing any widespread use guns were already transforming the military).

Of course, skirt-like wear doesn’t work very well with riding horseback, hence … pants.

To address Trump’s and Sessions’ kiddie concentration camps that doesn’t let them be hostage to a border wall.

Please check the list of co-sponsors and if any of your legislators are not yet sponsoring these bills, please make a call tomorrow. Even if you think they aren’t going to listen. Also please pass this info along to anyone else you know who is interesting in putting a stop to this.

Both my senators and my representative are already sponsors so this is my way of helping. Don’t know what else to do as I can’t afford to take a trip to the border to join the protests and as of yet there hasn’t been a march in my area to my knowledge.

I thought Sundays were typically slow.

On topic, I rather like the YouTube channel “Hugo and Jake”, formerly known as “The Bible Reloaded”. They are two of the better YouTube atheists, though they may be rather edgelordish for some people’s tastes. They have recently begun a series against Jordan Peterson and his book Twelve Rules for Life, which I recommend, but only if you don’t mind some edgelordery.

Ugh, Jordan Peterson. Does anyone read CounterPunch? I found it when looking for truly left-wing news sources to follow, and there were some very informative articles, but I found one by regular contributor Julian Vigo on how Peterson is smeared by the left and feminists who won’t give him a chance and take him out of context (of course). Looking at a list of Vigo’s other articles, they pander to the worst of the centrist liberal impulse by writing about how intolerant the left is, FREEZE PEACH and how feminism has a “misandry problem.” I might drop CounterPunch altogether if this is what I can expect from it.

I check it daily. It doesn’t seem to be purely leftist, so much as a mix of views. Some authors are good, some are dodgy at best. I’ve noticed a lot of “Russian interference skepticism” despite the large numbers of indictments Mueller’s team has been getting; hadn’t noticed any Peterson support myself.

Thanks for your input. That provides some more context. Here’s the article on Peterson.

I forgot to mention it, but I read Vox Day is critical of Peterson, if only because Peterson’s successful in area Vox wishes he was successful in.

I didn’t know throwing snow was particularly masculine.

Or that valuing politeness over truth is particularly feminine.

Or that complaining of being treated badly, however legitimate your complaint, is exactly like being a Nazi.

Jordan appeals to the undergraduate pseudo-intellectual gunner who tries to argue with the professor about subjects way out of their depth and misconstrues contrarianism with having a well-thought out argument.

Jordan himself ends up looking like a fool anytime he starts construing postmodernism with critical theory, failing to realize that the latter is predicated on postpostivism which is pretty much at ontological odds with the former. But hey, he sticks it to those SJWs!

C’mon Peterson! You work 5 minutes from the Bata Shoe Museum. They have a whole exhibit on the history of heels!

You have no excuses!

People are gonna start thinking that maybe you just latch onto the most superficial aspects of things and don’t actually research them. People are gonna think that instead of creating thoughtful, informed arguments, that you just rely on bloviating and buzzwords to sound convincing.

Visit the Bata Shoe Museum! Your credibility depends on it! And it’s surprisingly not boring!

In Virgil’s Aeneid, there’s a description of the warrior Camilla, who fights on horseback. There’s something odd about her clothes, which Virgil has trouble describing. Her legs are wrapped in tubes of cloth…

Clearly he means jodhpurs, but the Romans didn’t have a word for it.

Trousers were considered very weird by the Greeks when they saw Persian horsemen wearing them, too.

In the UAE and Oman traditionally women wore loose trousers (much like the lower half of a shalwar kameez) under the kandoura, whereas the men just wear a robe, sometimes with a kind of skirt, like a sarong, underneath.

There have been plenty of societies where men paint their faces and wear high heels. Including 18th century England, where the rouged dandy (in corsets, too) was a stock figure.

Yes. I understand modern high heels were commissioned by a KING of France to show off his legs.

And as recently as a century ago, Pink was the MASCULINE color and Blue the feminine — just the opposite of today’s color code.
