The Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) is a right-wing activist organization and huge supporter of the ex-gay movement as well as the debunked practice of conversion therapy. Recently, the PJI stirred up the right-wing word by claiming that a kid – I refer to her as Jane Doe for safety reasons – in Colorado was helped by the public school system to harass cisgender girls in the restrooms. Right wing media outlets jumped at the story without conducting any fact checking, prompting members of the right wing community to call for the death of the trans kid.
I interviewed PJI and they claim that they will never out Jane Doe, the 16 year old trans kid:
Cristan, we’ve have made pains, to never seek to identify this individual. Any more than, than we’re identifying at this point our own clients. This is all about privacy and therefore have great respect for that individual’s identity.
Here’s how Brennan deals with the identity of Jane Doe:
She misgenders and then outs Jane Doe while complaining that I am “well know for making information up in attempts to smear anyone who disagrees with him [sic].”
Note: Brennan claims that assertions that she worked with PJI, issued their statement and delivered it to me on their behalf are all lies. Let’s look at the evidence and see what it has to say about that.
