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.

Balanced and interesting series on the varied protests against JK and her writing. Really nice to hear both sides representing themselves and an interviewer with compassion and interest giving them space to express themselves in full. Always ask yourself "What if I'm wrong".
