Jordan Peterson's Daughter Mikhaila Explains What It Was Like Growing With Him As A Dad

Jordan Peterson is a rather controversial figure. Now, his daughter has explained what it was like to grow up with him.

Peterson is a retired professor, clinical psychologist and popular online personality from Canada. He rose to fame in 2016 after criticising a bill that introduced 'gender identity and expression' as prohibited grounds for discrimination.

Over the past six years, he's become one of today's most notable conservative speakers, with one columnist describing him as 'the most influential public intellectual in the Western world'. He has nearly five million subscribers on YouTube.

He's somewhat of a culture warrior, speaking in support of 'equality of opportunity' and against political correctness. There's also his infamous interview with Cathy Newman on Channel 4 News.

He also appeals broadly to the male demographic, earlier saying: "If men are pushed too hard to feminise, they will become more and more interested in harsh, fascist political ideology."

Given dads can be prone to lengthy tangents about anything and everything, one would have to imagine Peterson is like the ultimate father in this regard.

In a video posted to TikTok, Mikhaila Peterson (@mikhailapeterson) responded to followers asking what it was like to grow up with him as a dad. "Imagine if your entire childhood you spent watching Jordan Peterson YouTube videos," she said.

"My dad is really a lot like he is on YouTube. If you've seen any of his lectures or looked at his old courses, that was kind of like what dinner table conversation was like.

"I learned a lot about psychology. I know a lot about personality. I didn't know it was weird until I was like 24, or until he got famous, and then I realised it was weird.

"We had 37 different colours of paint in our house, over 100 paintings, all the walls were completely covered in Soviet art. I once had a Lenin painting fall on me while I was sleeping."

In an earlier video, she spoke further about her childhood with Peterson, including the moment she discovered eBay.

She said: "He went on eBay and started buying Soviet art because you couldn't get art out of the Soviet Union when it was the Soviet Union.

"Our house ended up completely filled with art, which drove my mum crazy... so I think it first occurred to me when I went over to other people's houses, and seeing what it looked like, and being like... this is plain, that's kind of weird."

Peterson earlier said he collects so much Soviet art because it's a reminder of the evils of extremism and the relationship between totalitarian agendas and art.
