  1. Thank you for interviewing Maya Dillard Smith. She is coutageous , wise, and has an amazing background. Her treatment at the conference recently by transsexual activists is appalling. I wanted to hear what she she and other speakers had to say. Given transactivists want so much for their views and experiences to be heard, it is disgraceful that would intentionally try to silence the voices of others by interrupting, talking over them, yelling, hurling hateful names and accusations. These young or middle aged activists have been taught how NOT to behave democratically, and think it is their right to do so. That their ends can be used to justify their means. So I am extremely grateful that you interviewed Dillard Smith without interruption, with excellent questions, and allowed her voice to be heard. Respectfully. Thank you so much to you both for your courage and wisdom to do this interview. I have written to Dillard Smith and hope she takes me up on my offer to volunteer however I can to be of support to her organization.
