Dr.Jordan B Peterson is a professor at the University of Toronto who has gained a lot of infamy for challenging a human rights bill in Canada. His critique is that there is a danger in setting overly broad language into law; particularly when it comes to compelled speech and unpopular speech. He is a practicing clinical psychologist and a Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto with a focus on authoritarianism. Admittedly Texas has no non-discrimination protections, but his criticisms may well provide useful on how to approach such an ordinance again and some insight on the pitfalls of overboard legislation.
