Thank you for your sensible challenge Tina L. Smith. It is a storm in a teacup with no diligence and tenuous outlook. Please see my point of view in the attached response I provided to James in an earlier message. I am disappointed seeing this undeserved and defaming story about our beloved publication hosting stories of wonderful LGBTQIA writers and embracing this great community more than any other publications on Medium. Our stories are public which can provide evidence on our commitment to this valued community.
