Anonymous say

Tara vents her bile
Last week I posted about the spectacularly venomous blog of psychologist Tara J Palmatier. Her blog unleashed a torrent of bile on anybody who happens to have a diagnosis of a Cluster B personality disorder.

The terms crazy asshole, mean jerk, toxic person or bad person

This clinician’s warmth and empathy was on display in such charming quotes as, “Giving Cluster B individuals and their ilk the protective cloak of “mental illness” provides them with a “get out of jail free card” and allays our existential dilemma on the concept of evil.” and “Pardon my language, but I think the terms crazy asshole, mean jerk, toxic person or bad person are better than diagnostic labels.”

Dr T has suddenly changed

Dr Palmatier’s blog post has been greeted with such unanimous praise and agreement from the Madosphere that Dr T has suddenly changed it from being public to password-protected.

Rewarded with yet more venom

Magicplum and Pandora pointed out that, despite having borderline personality disorder (a Cluster B diagnosis), they had abused nobody, and that this is true of many, many individuals with personality disorders. They were rewarded with yet more venom for their efforts.

A social encounter in a London park

Dr Tara’s post may have disappeared behind a password, but thanks to a social encounter in a London park, I can now reveal some of the hate-fuelled garbage her and her fans have been spouting.

Read the original post that sparked the outrage from Anonymous.

Crazy Californian Shrink's $90,000 legal loss shocker

In August 2010 Tara Palmatier published a diatribe against women with Borderline Personality Disorder.

She was counter attacked by a disorderly rabble of women with BPD, bloggers and mental health staff in a series of blog posts and videos.

Palmatier reached for her Lawyer and all but one of the naysayers were threatened, sued and cajoled into silence.

Only Socrates, from the notorious New Republic blog, took a stand...

Still waiting for the cheque/check. The bill is now (November 2013) in excess of £50,000

Dr Palmatier has become something of a heroine and torch-bearer for what has become known as the "Men's Right Movement" (MRM).

Here is a brief but well evidenced rebuttal of the MRM: Men’s Rights Movement Spreads False Claims about Women, from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
