Is university taken over by Neo Marxist ideology as claimed by J. Peterson ?

Jordan Peterson claims that university is largely taken over by Neo-Marxist ideology which is an intellectual failure to engage with reality, and has significant impact on the public service and some journalism. How true is this startling claim ? Let's explore and discuss. Very briefly here are some of his claims: 1.Transgender issues: JP argues that science shows gender is largely biology and the claim of gender is cultural construct has no foundation.
JP argues Bill C16 forces speech of a person's chosen pronoun which is form of thought control in support of an unfounded position.
(Sarah Silverman in an interview suggested JP should lighten up and just respect a transgender person's pronoun preference). 2.Equality of Outcome: JP argues the radical left is forcing equality of outcome which violates basic biology as most of the value in a society or group is done by the superstars. I am not sure where I see arguments for equality of outcome from alt left but will continue to dig. 3.Rigidity of Political Correctness and Identity Politics: JP argues the fact that these views have become ideological is demonstrated by a fear of open debate and an avoidance of reality which does not conform. I tend to agree this is very worrying. Will add links and improve the above introduction, particularly if there is some good online discussion prior.
