Better yet, let me explain them. Ask yourself, why do “activists” “fighting” for the “civil rights” of people with psychiatric labels denounce mental health parity legislation? What do you call the denial of care for an anorectic if not discrimination? I don’t think people who post against mental health parity should get to sidle up next to Martin Luther King. People who are motivated to dismantle the mental health system may have learned to present themselves as “civil rights advocates” in order to get a hearing. These people must support mental health parity as a civil rights issue, and anyone who speaks against it is not honestly working to end discrimination. At best, their gears aren’t meshing, at worst, they will be with us forever.
