Here is the anti-racist and cultural diversity policy of U of T, which he seems to take issue with (doesn't look too radical to me):

Policy
Ensuring that every member of the University community is accorded the requisite environment to live, learn and work free of bias or discrimination.
Ensuring every individual on campus has the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
Honouring the institutional commitment of the University of Toronto as an organization exemplifying commitment to anti-racism and the elimination of systemic discrimination.
Programs
Creating events and programs that highlight the intersection between the academic work in the areas of ethno-cultural diversity, critical race-related issues and issues of relevance to the larger community on campus.
Providing a forum for individuals and student groups to meet, discuss and initiate ideas and plans for programs and events that will strengthen both the diversity of the university community and its commitment to an equitable environment.
Getting Help
Providing training and education to members of the University community for a better understanding and commitment to an environment and a diversity friendly campus.
Facilitating dialogue and resolution of current conflicts and or disputes associated with race, ethnicity, culture and creed in a respectful manner.
Advising individuals and groups in taking responsibility for creating safe spaces in classrooms, residences, workspaces where ethnic, racial, cultural and religious differences are respected.
Stamp Out, Erase, Outpace Racism

I can't fathom what he's for (except himself) or against (except others protesting).Oh, and he seems to be against Bill C16(not sure why).
And who could be afraid of a weird little Unicorn, lol?

And his blather doesn't seem to have much of anything to do with feminism, although I have to admit he's sooooo boring that I gave up after a while. Maybe that's why some people protest at his speaking engagements?
I'm glad he at least gets his chance to get it all out and unload on a radio talk show. At least there they can make sure he's not interupted by protestors.

Could this be why the University of T is concerned about Peterson's effect on campus?

"Meanwhile, messy scenes unfolded on campus. One rally to support Peterson attracted a white supremacist and a man wearing a Hells Angels jacket, according to the Varsity newspaper, and resulted in violence by the left and right. Violent threats were made against transgender students and faculty."
"Peterson has “had a kind of liberating effect on prejudice,” said de Sousa, which he likens to the effect that president-elect Donald Trump, who has also railed against political correctness, has had in the U.S."

Even this feminist is telling women they need to start listening. There's another sex in society and the failing to listen to them, treat them equal is damaging to all of us.

It appears from the article that all the father has to do is marry the mother (or sign the birth certificate at her request) in order to declare his parental rights. Is this too much to ask? The mother it seems comes by her rights by carrying the pregnancy to term (usually for nine months) and being prepared to raise it. So it seems merely donating DNA or living in the same home (although these might help), does not confer automatic parental rights.
These laws, by and large, were written and passed by men. So men can certainly change them.

Here is how the Ontario law works:

"4) Custody and access.

In situations where the parents of a child are not married, there is no automatic presumption that the mother will get custody of that child.

Instead, the Children’s Law Reform Act specifically provides that the father and the mother of the child are equally entitled to custody. As a practical matter, this means that not only are the parents equally given the relevant rights and responsibilities, but they are also obliged to exercise those rights and responsibilities in the child’s best interests.

It should be noted that in cases where the parents of the child live separate and apart but the child lives with one of them with the other’s consent, the other parent’s right to exercise custody is suspended until a separation agreement or a court order provides otherwise. However, the non-custodial parent still retains an entitlement to have access to the child; this includes visitation rights, as well as the right to make inquiries / be given information as to the health, education and welfare of the child."
The courts do not normally deny or limit a parent's access, unless a case can be made for that,

Apparently feminists have been out of control since at least the time of the Vikings.

If she is a terrible, immoral person for getting infected with herpes, then isn't also every guy she transmits it to, also a terrible immoral person? Or is it just women who get infected who are terrible, not the guys who get it or pass it on?

Article above is a bit silly. If the writer sees a woman struggling with groceries they help, but not if it's a man?
If I saw someone struggling with their groceries, I would help, regardless it's a man or woman, and more so if they were elderly. Why wouldn't you help someone if they seemed to need it? What difference does it make whether they are man or woman?
You get to the door first, if you are able, you open it for the other person, doesn't matter if they are man or woman.
Demand that someone else open the door for you? Really? I have never seen a woman do that (not saying that somewhere there isn't a person that would).Some men open doors, some women open doors. Who's keeping score?
Some things are just common courtesy, it's not a contest. Good manners have very little to do with gendre.

The feminists are really getting out of control now, lining up in droves to sink Weinstein in a hail of allegations of sexual harrassement, misconduct, and sexual assault.
What is also concerning is the number of women who are claiming that this type of behavior occurs daily in the entertainment industry. So obviously it has been just an accepted, normal way of doing business for way too many, powerful, pathological men.
When are men going to "get it" that this behavior has to stop? It's way past time for them to clean up their act. Women in their daily business lives are not just there to fulfill their fantasies.
