Alert from Dr. Lynn Conway

Alert: Others have received threats from Zucker, in a wider pattern of intimidation of his transgender critics

Hi folks,

Something began to happen when I posted my report on Zucker's threat (and oh my, this is starting to get really strange):

Other women began coming forward, saying they'd also received threats from Zucker. Seems I wasn't singled out for special treatment after all. Zucker's nastygram was part of a wider pattern of threats and intimidation that CAMH has been using to silence critics of his reparatist therapy.

I've just posted a report about all this. The report includes links to pdf's of threatening letters sent to two additional women, and makes an appeal for others who've received such threats to come forward too:

"Kenneth Zucker's legal threats: Part of a pattern of silencing transgender critics"'s_pattern_of_silencing_transgender_critics.html

It's now clear that CAMH has engaged in the systematic issuance of falsely-concocted threats of legal action as a means of intimidating and silencing Zucker's critics.

I wonder how Zucker's colleagues in the American Psychiatric Association (APA), American Psychological Association (APA), Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), International Academy of Sex Research (IASR), and other relevant professional and licensing organizations will feel about this highly unethical practice – and the massive conflicts of interest involved.

Please pass this alert on to all interested parties.

All the best,
