Trans rights activists, here's how you can report me to the board.
You asked. I answered.
I understand that my Twitter account, blog, and website are receiving a flurry of attention from trans rights activists (TRAs) who see it as their job to prevent therapists like me from doing our jobs. So I’ve decided to write this post and pin it to the top of my Twitter account for the convenience of any TRA who would like to make a complaint.
Let me make this easy for you. Here is the website where you can submit a complaint about me. Although your complaint may be drowned out by all the other complaints from other people who also do not know me. This may become an administrative headache for my colleagues at the OBLPCT. I have already extended them my sympathies for the stress of dealing with your complaints.
Wait, I did what?
Yes, I already contacted the board about this. You might want to read what I’ve written to them. Here it is.
Three more things you might want to be aware of before you report me:
Submitting a false accusation to the OBLPCT is itself a punishable crime. If you pretend to know anything about me that you don’t, you could end up suffering legal consequences. Therefore, anything you are legally able to report will be the same as what other people have reported: I have a website and social media presence you dislike.
As a therapist in private practice, I influence several dozen people per year.
As a writer and speaker, I influence a greater number of people, which grows exponentially. I have the potential to reach millions.
In your best and my worst case scenario, if you win and I actually lose my license (or have it temporarily suspended), and I’m unable to see my clients, my backup plan is to focus full time on writing and podcasting.
When “activists” succeeded in their mission to expel Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying from Evergreen University in 2017, the former professors’ reach increased exponentially. They went from helping a few hundred students, to reaching hundreds of thousands of people through their YouTube channel, podcast, blogs, and now, their book.
So here’s the thing. I don’t think you really want me to lose my license. That would mean I would have all day, every day, to express myself in ways that reach exponentially more people than individual or family therapy ever can.
I’ve been practicing having difficult conversations dozens of hours per week for the past 8 years straight. I’ve left cults and abusive relationships. I’ve got an IQ of 165. I’m very good with words, well researched, and persuasive. And I’m connected with all the right experts across disparate fields.
If you pick a fight with me that leads to the court system, I’d be willing and able to escalate the issue, and our side could win. A court battle that you pull me into could potentially result in reversing the laws that redefined “conversion therapy” to include questioning someone’s gender identity. This would be a victory for my side, allowing therapists to practice ethically again.
Basically, I’m not the kind of person you want to mess with. Just some food for thought before you proceed. Make whatever choice suits you.
You’re welcome, and best of luck. Here’s looking at you, kid.
