    thought his positions were horrifying.
    I'm just amazed that my husband, who works at a clinic and has lots of friends who are therapists, has heard nothing about this guy or his "theories," nor does he or any of his colleagues agree with Zucker's point of view.
    Maybe it's because we're east coast liberals....

      This clique -- which transgender activists call the Northwestern-CAMH axis -- has high level support coming from somewhere. They we able to get an extremely transphobic piece of hate literature published by the National Academies Press. In the outrage that followed, it turned out that the author of this book, who was then chairman of the Psychology dept at Northwestern, had been cruising gay bars for his transsexual "research subjects", and also "shtupping" them (to use a Rachel Maddowism.) He was quietly removed from his chairmanship at Northwestern and his was quietly taken out of the National Academies Press catalog. But he is in the clique with Zucker, Blanchard, and several others I could name.

      The transgender community has been trying to draw attention to this for the past 10 years, but no one outside the community will listen.

        so he's not involved with APA except as a member. The one person he knows who's high up in that group is a jerk, so that's no help.
        But I'll at least get him tuned into this a bit.
        As for shtupping -- that's Yiddish not Maddowish!
