Dr. Jordan Peterson defends slamming plus-size Sports Illustrated model - Daily Mail

'Not the ideal of athletic beauty': Dr. Jordan Peterson doubles down on criticism of plus-size Sports Illustrated model - and says 'confused gay kids are being convinced they're transsexual'

  • The conservative author and psychologist defended his opinions on transgender people and controversial tweet about a plus size Sports Illustrated model in a new interview with The Telegraph 
  • Peterson was slammed in May for tweeting a Sports Illustrated plus-sized model was 'not beautiful' 
  • Peterson defended his tweet claiming model, Yumi Nu, was not athletic or fit to be on the cover of a sports magazine 
  •  He further claimed that transgender people have only been 'convinced they are transsexual'

Anti-woke Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson has defended a tweet where he said a plus-sized model in Sports Illustrated was 'not beautiful' because he doesn't think she is 'the ideal of athletic beauty'.

Peterson, who faced backlash for his tweet in May, told The Telegraph in a new interview that the tweet was 'not a mistake' or the reason why he decided not to use the platform.

He initially tweeted a photo of model Yumi Nu, stating: 'Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.'

Peterson told The Telegraph: 'The use of that model, who was not athletic (remember: SPORTS Illustrated) was manipulative economically and in relation to the model herself (although she participated in her own exploitation),' he told The Telegraph.

'Beauty is an ideal. Almost all of us fall short of an ideal. I'm not willing to sacrifice any ideal to faux compassion. Period. And certainly not the ideal of athletic beauty.'

He added that he deleted his Twitter account from his personal devices to prevent him 'from reading comments from anonymous trolls' that insisted he was 'a white supremacist' and a 'transphobe'.

Jordan Peterson defends a controversial tweet about a plus-sized model during an interview with The Telegraph.
Peterson reportedly said that the magazine used a non-athletic model for a sports magazine and his tweet wasn't a mistake
Peterson was met with critics - including his followers - for boy shaming the model. He claimed the magazine edition was 'a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate & retool the notion of beauty.'
Peterson later announced that he would be 'departing' from Twitter and leave the tweets to his staff  - following the 'endless flood of vicious' comments

In the same interview, Peterson once again spoke out about his controversial political ideologies in relation to the LGBTQIA community - who he reportedly calls 'the alphabet people.' 

The former psychologist claimed that many people are 'confused' about their 'sexual identities.' 

Peterson argued that some men and women become confused because they notice personality traits of the opposite gender within themselves. 

'So the idea that there is fluidity and there is overlap in gender personality is true,' he said. 'What isn't true is that this means you're in the wrong body, and that's not true even a bit.' 

He added, 'the radical types' notion of gender is completely empty.' Peterson went on to explain how some women can claim they feel like a man, but argue they can't know if they do because they aren't.

'Gender is what you feel. Ok, what do you mean by "feel?" "I feel like I'm a man" Well, how do you know, because you aren't,' he explained of his logic. 

Peterson said there are many gay adolescents that 'are being convinced they're transsexual' - claiming 'That's not so good for gay people.'

When people have approached Peterson about their sexual identities, the psychologist said that, rather than telling them what they should do, he helps them find the solution. 

'The right way to handle that therapeutically is to say, “OK, I don’t know what the hell is best for you, and clearly you don’t either because you’re confused. So let’s evaluate the whole range of possibilities before we do anything precipitous, let alone surgical.”' 

Peterson is actively outspoken about his views on trans people and was suspended on Twitter Thursday after tweeting that transgender Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page had his 'breasts removed by a criminal physician' - a tweet he allegedly refuses to delete, according to Conservative Political Commentator Dave Rubin. 

David Rubin claimed Peterson would 'never' delete the tweet after the platform flagged him for breaking their policies
Elliot Page, known for his role in The Umbrella Academy, announced his transition in December 2020. The Netflix series released their third season in mid-June while changing his character's name from Vanya to Viktor

Page - who previously went by the name Ellen before announcing his transition in 2020 -  was criticized by Peterson the day the Netflix series aired it's third season on June 22. 

Netflix integrated Page's transition into the show, changing his character's name from Vanya to Viktor, while also allowing for Page's character to briefly explain why he transitioned.  

'Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breast removed by a criminal physician,' Peterson tweeted. 

Twitter flagged Peterson's account saying his tweet violated their rules for posting 'hateful conduct.' 

Peterson's controversies have dated back to 2016 - beginning with Canadian legislation that would ban discrimination based on 'gender identity or expression. 

He argued that it would threaten free speech - but said he would use people's preferred pronouns if they asked.
