That is pretty rough treatment of Gardner. He seems like a pretty straight shooter and opened a very important avenue of research that is not very well followed because it runs afoul of the SJW/political correctness theories. I think its very important to build and mature his work through experts like Dr Baker and Dr Craig Childress and others who have done great work in this area. I would agree that labels can distract in court, especially when the players don't understand the label or its misused.
