When Rebel Media Reporters Fake Being Trans, They're Not Doing Journalism - 2016-10-07
Remember when I said writing about Jordan Peterson was a trap? This, right here, is stepping into a snare.
For those who don't keep up with Rebel Media, the Ezra Levant-led online outlet born after Sun TV shut down, reporter Lauren Southern was on-site at a University of Toronto teach-in protest this week. While non-binary students explained why they found psychology professor Jordan Peterson's recent statements harmful, she told attendees she was trans and interviewed them under those pretenses. Southern, 21, took to the mic with that pretense, too, taking a speaking opportunity prioritized by organizers for trans people in order to do so.
Southern's supporters were on campus too. In a shaky video, a supporter giggles throughout Southern's speech. "Man, she has balls," they say. "Legally."
