Jordan Peterson was right when he was opposing the Thought Police.

Lately, he's been batshit.

He’s a pretty shallow thinker. Though he’s been proven right about C-16.

His Biblical series is interesting. He was right about C-16. Now I think he needs to take a break and digest for a while.

that is timely for a lot of first graders. you do have to teach them not to tackle people or lick people and other shit you'd never think you'd have to tell another person who isn't named [fill in the blank senator, media personality, or film star].

Exactly. Seems appropriate and consistent with what I learned in grade school. Keep your hands to yourself shouldn't be seen as ideological.

It worries me that a friend of mine thinks that guy is someone to be listened to.

That's something I've never ever figured out. Where do some people get the idea that touching other people without their agreement (unless to prevent greater harm, like stopping them from walking in front of a bus) is ever, in any way, acceptable? I hear these stories from pregnant women about rando people who touch their bellies, or people who have others touching their hair, or touching them because they're fat, or thin or short or tall and I'm just horrified. Who just randomly touches people? Why would you ever think that that is acceptable?

I never heard of Jordan Peterson until I started reading this thread yesterday, but his bitching that it's "ideological" (and presumably inappropriate) to teach six-year-olds to keep their hands to themselves and refrain from licking other people tells me pretty much all I need to know about him, I think.

Apropos, just the other day, I hit this installment of an auto-bio webcomic of the mother of a child in that age group:

That tweet...I'm reminded of that clip of Rush Limbaugh's bizarre rant where he tried to make "consent" sound like a curse.

This is a culture issue, not a universal moral constant. Why shouldn't I sit close to a friend?

No licking is a much more reasonable rule. No grabbing is fine. But drawing the line at 'touching' is a problem.

Edited.

I get that, I made a typo which I've fixed. My point is not based on misunderstanding the words though. What is too close?

It's subjective and synonymous with staying out of others' comfort zones. I suggest you are misunderstanding the word "too", apart from the to/too typo.

It's a rule based on correctly judging others subjective preferences. It's bad. A better rule is 'Ask before you sit close to somebody you don't know' because it teaches you to solve the problem instead of guessing, and doesn't promote a world where we ask consent for every social interaction.
