Thought-provoking podcast. I especially appreciate the perspectives of the two trans interviewees who disagree with J.K. Rowling. They made reasonable points that I'd never heard or considered... eye-opening for me. Thank you.

Well done podcast on a subject that has been on my mind for a long time.

You're not listening closely enough. While espousing her belief that Trans people deserve "all the rights", out of the entire other side of her mouth she very clearly says: Trans Rights Activists are dangerous. Her views are dangerous.
