A previous post on Hole Ousia that briefly considered Psychiatrists on Social Media was recently shared on Twitter in a way that was out of context and this reminded me, once again, why I have chosen not to be on Twitter. The President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Professor Wendy Burn, was involved in a Twitter exchange discussing my post and asked “Where are the women??”
I have since written to Professor Burn, who is indeed regularly involved in Twitter discussions with the above Psychiatrists, to apologise for any unintentional discrimination. I informed the President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists that I would amend the image.
