I think that people have to agree to a set of rules in order to engage in the discussion.  Jordan misgenders people who are in the discussion, which is offensive to the people who are in the discussion.  He is looking for the right to use whatever pronouns he wants, but he should be respectful in the discussion itself.

Otherwise, I guess it would be ok for other people in the discussion to call him fascist, idiot or whatever they like.  (It's not)

If anyone thinks that it is a societal norm to use the term ‘zhe’ or another made up term, it’s not.  Hence the discussion about it. 

The Rebel is a far-right publication that promotes objectionable views.  He jumped into bed with them early on, because they promised to raise money for him.

You’ve gone from ‘extremist’ to ‘objectionable’.  Do you think those two terms are synonymous?
