Just got some particularly flamboyant hate mail, one for the record books, from some dude all up in arms about my “unprofessional” criticisms of massage therapy. (There’s nothing unprofessional about my criticisms — I’m civil. He just thinks it’s unprofessional to criticize anything in alternative medicine at all. Thou shalt not ask awkward questions!) And yet ironically his “constructive” criticism to me consists of sneering speculation about — seriously — my deep-seated “psycho-sexual” motivations. Good grief!
This may have been an extreme example, but it’s not at all unusual as a theme.
