@girlsrituals 1/ Zucker repeatedly diverts attention from the core problems with what he pushes globally as the way to (mis)treat pre-pubertal GNC & trans children, which is plain abuse (ignoring or breaking vital boundaries), of thousands, over decades, & ongoing. He paints himself as the…
@girlsrituals 2/…victim, he manipulates others into being complicit & has them act in in his defence, he uses legal threats at the drop of a hat, he uses his editorships, he even claims that only #ReparativeTherapy against sexual orientation is unethical, despite Toronto law saying otherwise
@girlsrituals 3/ Unfortunately the Hinkle complaint, serious as it was, was, as it so often the case by the very nature of events, without corrobation, so Zucker was able to use it to threaten, & divert, again.

We desperately need his disbelief dogma gone from trans paediatric care globally…
@girlsrituals 4/…and the best way is if his core methods in handling, & trying to "cure" those under 10 by crazy but abusive means, that harmed the children, & for which he was dismissed & his clinic closed, are the reason for his disgrace.

He had an hour at WPATH2016 arguing his case…
@girlsrituals 5/…with the help of Prof Richard Green, who is a law professor as well as a veteran of gender care going back to the 60s. What he got back was the suggestion that "if some many people say what you did was abuse, perhaps you should consider whether it was." He didn't like that.…
@girlsrituals 6/…It was a highly charged hour, packed, with security enforcing a cordon around him & his supporting speakers. I was there. He does not have peer support.

Yet some countries are still enforcing his dogma. And he still has huge patronage power.

He abused many others, over…
@girlsrituals 7/…decades. Not least all the teens he denied timely agonists & hormones, but he switched policies on that when some clinics are still doing the same. So his remaining, & biggest fault is with young children who are pre-pubertal or at puberty - the most vulnearable.

So I'm…
@girlsrituals 8/ asking that, unless you really can nail him, don't give him the window he needs to divert again, & claim it (i.e. all trans people & those who support us) is all just unprovable allegations, vindictive, crazy, or put it all sub-judice.

And take care of yourself, please.
@girlsrituals 9/ I'm reminded that Money's "gender blank slate" theory, which denies the gender idenity of young children & is kinda the foundation upon which Blanchard & Zucker's mebtal & social #abuse of trans children is built, sails on, not least in feminist circles, despite the BBC…
@girlsrituals 10/…having him "bang to rights", in a major documentary, as a child sexual abuser - they dramatised a session with the Reimer twins, based directly upon his tape recording of the session.

That was after his death (Money too had Green, as a loyal old friend, on his legal team)…
@girlsrituals 11/…so it could never go to court.

Unfortunatley most only see child abuse as sexual - when any form of abuse done to adults is done to children too, but is either called something else (neglect, battering, bullying, slavery…) or ignored. They ignored that Money doing sex…
@girlsrituals 12/…abuse of children was a huge signpost that he was abusive in other ways too - as abusers always are because they either don't understand, or enjoy flouting vital #boundaries.

You yourself seem to have used "child abuse" to only mean sexual, but the way Zucker (and those…
@girlsrituals 13/…who follow his dogma) isolate children from their parents (as you condemn) was part of his abuse of their identity, individuality, self-confidence & self-belief, even when nothing sexual was involved.
