Hmm, it's already in Do you not have ~/.local/bin on your path as recommended?

      Oops, there was a typo in .profile that mangled the addition to the path.  Sorry for the noise.  
FWIW, though, SIP didn’t seem to bother the link in /usr/local.

I don't think SIP worries much about Python, so that link is just for "python2" which Apple doesn't expose 
because they don't ship a Py3 anymore. In any case SIP is smart enough that symlinks don't fool it, you need 
a copy of the "critical executable" outside the system directories. I don't know and haven't tested if SIP 
considers /usr/local one of those "critical directories"; my caution against using it is that I've seen Apple 
ship system updates that delete or overwrite files in /usr/local.
