I remember your posts, I was one who questioned you but I stand corrected. My apologies.
I will still say this, everyday I go out I am prepared to be inconvenienced for a bit, or even asked to leave a business. I have a brochure and my audio recorder ready. Fortunately, after 7 months that has not happened. But still I am ready. I think that education is still needed. I am willing and prepared to educate. On days that I may be in a hurry, I will cover up, but those days are rare.
Again, keep up the good work, it will take many of us to change perceptions.
