‘OK. She Might Be Beautiful’: Jordan Peterson Humorously Salutes Traditional Idea Of Beauty

Best-selling author and psychologist Jordan Peterson, who was attacked by some people for stating candidly of a plus-sized model on the cover of the 2022 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, “Sorry. Not beautiful,” humorously saluted the traditional idea of beauty on Thursday.

Maxim named professional golfer Paige Spiranac, who boasts 3.3 million Instagram followers and more than 10 million across all social channels, as the “World’s Sexiest Woman” and featured her on the cover of its July/August issue.

Peterson simply acknowledged, “Ok. She might be beautiful,” with a smiling emoji.

Peterson commented on Twitter after his post regarding plus-sized model Yumi Nu, which he said had generated hostility on social media. He had tweeted, “Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.”

Peterson acknowledged the hostility that the tweet engendered from some quarters.

“The endless flood of vicious insult is really not something that can be experienced anywhere else,” Peterson wrote. “I like to follow the people I know but I think the incentive structure of the platform makes it intrinsically and dangerously insane.”

“So I told my staff to change my password, to keep me from temptation, and am departing once again,” he added. “If I have something to say I’ll write an article or make a video. If the issue is not important enough to justify that then perhaps it would be best to just let it go.”

“And I plan to write an article on the technical reasons that Twitter is maddening us all very soon. Bye for now,” he concluded.

Spiranac’s provocative attire on the golf course may have led to the LPGA implementing a dress code that eschews plunging necklines, leggings and short skirts. She told Maxim, “People say you’re promoting women to show off their assets or to wear less to get more engagement online. My message is wear what you want to wear.”

“I get frustrated when they support everyone except for you ‘cause you like to show cleavage,” she continued. “My dress code my entire life, I like to wear things that are more formfitting. I just became more comfortable wearing less because of my gymnastics background. I like being able to have movement in my swing. When I began wearing leggings it started a huge uproar. And now I go to the range and I see so many women wearing leggings.”

Spiranac won five tournaments on Colorado’s junior golf circuit, ranking her in the world’s top 20 junior players, then got a golf scholarship from the University of Arizona.

“And while she sputtered as a pro, she’s become the most prominent woman in the sport, partnering with numerous golf-related concerns such as Club Champion (a bespoke club-fitter), X-Golf golf simulator, Shot Scope (a shot-tracker app), Swag Golf, and several sports betting concerns, as well as Dynamic Brands, parent company to numerous premium golf equipment and clothing labels,” Maxim noted.

Spiranac works with the CyberSmile Foundation, which counters online bullying.

“If you told me, senior year of college, that my life would take this path, I would have laughed in your face,” she concluded. “I never expected any of this to happen, but I’m so grateful that it did. I’m really able to love who I am and what I’m doing through content creation and being an influencer. So, I’m happy with how everything turned out. I wish I played golf at a higher level and accomplished more, but I wouldn’t trade this for the world.”
