    I’m way late to the party here, but just wanted to thank Uhuru for his brilliant and moving insights on the intersection of race and gender in African American society. Really, really thought-provoking!

    Hey Jay, I do not see the link to my essay in its entirety in the show notes on this page so here it is: https://soundcloud.com/adreana-langston-1/a-woman-like-me . It is 7 minutes long so I did not expect you to play in on air. I did not expect you to play it at all actually. I was just illustrating for you how your terrific show can be the catalyst for Progressive people to think even more deeply about various issues. Anyway, you did address my essay in your commentary and I appreciated your answers. I think that using CisWoman and TransWoman as subcategory words is a terrific idea because it helps to bring to the forefront that sexuality is a spectrum. That was more my main point rather than, as you misstated, I wanted the title of “woman” all to myself and my kind. Subcategories that show the spectrum is exactly that for which I advocate and I think your response was spot on. So thank you again.
