    DailyWire+ addition Jordan Peterson issued a scathing review of Twitter following the social media platform banning him this week. They locked Peterson's account after he posted his thoughts on transgender actress Elliot Page.

    "A few days ago I penned an irritated tweet in response to one of the latest happenings on the increasingly heated culture war front. In response to the decision of an actress - actor - named Ellen - Elliot Page. I am employing this awkward and impossible naming style because it is now apparently mandatory and am probably doing it wrong...I'm trying to make a point," Peterson began in his reply.

    "I've essentially been banned from Twitter as a consequence. I say banned although technically, I've been suspended. But the suspension will not be lifted unless I delete the 'hateful' tweet in question, and I would rather die than do that."

    Next, the Canadian psychologist went over what the tweet said and what he believes the violation may have been, despite Twitter never specifying which part of the rules he violated.

    "Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician," the original tweet said.

    Twitter's explanation said Peterson violated the rules against "hateful conduct," an accusation that he vehemently denies.

    "I did not promote violence against or threaten anyone," Peterson said in reply.

    He went on to discuss the sin of pride and the problem of Pride month being a celebratory occasion.

    "I don't regard pride as a virtue. It has been classically regarded as a sin," he said, explaining how celebrating or taking pride in your sexual orientation is unnecessary.

    Next, Peterson posited that he was banned for deadnaming the "Juno" alum by calling Elliot "Ellen," or by using the pronoun "her" when the star had since transitioned to using "he/him."

    "How could those I'm writing to make sense of what I was saying if it was his breasts that were removed? Were those male breasts or female breasts that were removed?" he continued, making the case for calling Page a woman to make his point in the first place.

    Finally, Peterson said Page may be an adult capable of making decisions as he/she sees fit, but that as a celebrity, there is some level of responsibility to fans as well.

    "Elliot has undoubtedly with his/her/their so-called courage... enticed many a poor, confused adolescent - girl, most likely - to blame her emergent pubescent self-consciousness, confusion, and discomfort on being born in the wrong body and believing that the courageous, self-affirming, and moral admirable route is hormonal treatment, sterilization, subjugation to a lifetime of expensive medical complications, and misery," Peterson said, before pointing out that transgender surgeries and drugs are part of a $300 million industry that's growing at a rapid pace.

    In conclusion, Peterson insisted he's not deleting the tweet. "Up yours, woke moralists," the DailyWire+ contributor said. "I regard [being banned] under the present conditions as a badge of honor."
