  3. Hi Louie and [redacted],
  4.  
  5. The email below was received at the [redacted] email account regarding a client of the centre's.
  6.  
  7. The transphobia is pretty intense in the email (the misgendering, for example).  This could be an example of some disturbing public transphobia that has been going on of late.
  8.  
  9. Notice that the email is copied to the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Ontario.
  10.  
  11. How would you like to proceed?
  12.  
  13. Thanks,
  14. [redacted]

  18. Hello - My name is Cathy Brennan. I am a lawyer and a lesbian activist in Baltimore, Maryland.  I write because Dr. Chan appears to be the doctor for Emily Horsman, a man seeking to transition to female.  See attached.[emily.JPG]
  19.  
  20. Emily Horsman regularly attacks women on social media who have a lesbian feminist political opinion.  That is, he harasses us and establishes fake Twitter accounts to harass us.  His Twitter Account (derpemily) can be seen at https://twitter.com/derpemily - attached is an account he established to parody me (terfprincess).
  21.  
  22. Query whether this is the kind of experience one must have to "live as a woman." - you bully other women?  Also, I believe Dr. Chan has a professional obligation to know about his patient's mental health.  I am outraged that this kind of thing happens.
  23.  
  24. I look forward to your response.
  25.  
  26. Cathy Brennan

  39. So you have no issue with this kind of conduct by one of your patients?  That is seriously disturbing.  Shame on you and your disregard of women and lesbians.
