Ok.  If he was a minimally competent academic, he wouldn't be here.
Because his views offend you?  He's a heretic!  Burn him at the stake!

I disagree.  He wants to be civil, but he misgenders people
When did he do that?  Link?

...makes unconsidered statements.... he isn't being civil, he is denying people their rights, associating with extremists and overstating his case.  Nice that he wants to be 'civil' but he should lead by example.
Whose rights is he denying?  His whole argument is that the government is denying HIS rights by enforcing compelled speech.  He's never said he'd not use someone's preferred pronoun, but that the government shouldn't force him to.  I can't name another example of compelled speech in law, can you?

Which extremists is he associating with?  People who happen to follow him on twitter, which is out of his control?  I think you've bought into to the BS social media spin about this guy and not actually what's going on.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
