Marsha considered themself a gay man who did drag, a transvestite and an activist. That is from interviews with her on Youtube. So I think we should honor how Marsha lived and not call Marsha something else. Also, the term trans women was not in use until much later. Marsha was definitely gender non-confirming and a pioneer for our rights.

Take it for granted and they will take it away. Get out in the streets, not to get drunk and take selfies, but to make your voice and your political power known and felt.
I took more than one beating in Phoenix in the early '90,s to defend Our right to exist just as Straights do. Please Millennials and Alphas. Don't let them take away what others fought so very hard for..

What about his/her fundamental rights; just being a human? Why do we have all these other interjections and distractions that people are primarily being mistreated not because of their gender, but because of their race? Seems like someone is always promoting an ideology that seems to weaken the other groups, the groups sadly buy into it.

Sadly, many Prostitutes that are Gay or Trans. were and are often beaten up, used, abused and left for dead. They are just trying to survive while barely living off the streets. The same thing happened to some of the Drag Queens that were part of the Paris is Burning movie Documentary from back then as well. Back then discrimination was legal and no one would hire any gay or Trans that acted or seemed effeminate. They were often thrown out of their homes, disowned by their families and could not get employment.

First of all Johnson was not transgender. He was a gay transvestite. If you don't know that don't you dare try to speak for us. Secondly tell the whole story. Johnson was also a diagnosed schizophrenic that thought poseidon god of the sea was his father and would throw things into the water as tributes to his father when he wasn't medicated. So that's most likely how he wound up in the water. So stop using a gay man's accidental death to push your trans agenda and stop the trans theft of his identity as a gay man.

I just might add that they want to heterosexuals to be gender-neutral, yet they want the perverts to be treated as gender in the extreme ridged form but only to the false identity they choose

Only the left would celebrate a riot, and only the left would be arrogant enough to believe that traditions must be followed only to their liking . That you must treat them in a strict traditional way that you wouldn’t even have to treat a natural man or woman
