It was sign for her that Chemda learned about trans issues and respected trans people.
We the listeners know Keith also does! But there is still his ( beautiful) straight white guy face.
Even more? That was at the very end.

True. But after Chemda told her about it, she seemed even more open.

That's how it came across to me. Like this documentary is for educating people but that doesn't mean when you see Laverne Cox in person you can just run up on her and ask her about her gender reassignment surgery. Or even if she's a guest on your show she might feel offended by you asking.

At least that's how I took it.
THIS! The question I have is why is it so hard to acknowledge this part. Yes this woman was a horrible interview but that all got overshadowed by the transphobic question. You could have an amazing interview with a Rod but as soon as you call him a nigga I am out. As a black woman I get this. I haven't heard Keith acknowledge the transphobia of the genitals question at all and that's the part that sent the interview way off the rails for me. Why can't both exist. Julia was a Horrible interview AND the question was transphobic. Maybe that's tew much of a grey area.

I agree with you. ( I’m not a black woman, with your opinion in general)
I listened to last week and thought about what she did. Absolutely she didn’t learn anything about the show and was ignorant herself.
On the other hand, I felt the fear in her voice and felt emphatic.
She was really afraid, I think because of terrible experiences in the past.

I disagree that Keithís question was transphobic. This whole thing has been blown out of proportion.

I think only a trans person can decide that.
Same as only a person of color can decide if a behavior is racist or not. I, a white person might think something is totally fine, because of my own blind spots.

Then why are you deciding it?

She didnít say it was transphobic. She was cagey about every single question.

I canít decide it.
And I didnít say it! Check it! I donít throw such big words around.
I said that I felt for her, because I thought she was afraid and has made terrible experiences in the past for sure.
