A stupid statement by George Takei.
Gay icon George Takei recently commented on the ruling by the Supreme Court's decision for protection for the LGBT Community.
He started out by posting, "The LGBTQ rights movement began 51 years ago with the Stonewall Riots, led by trans POC heroes."
Led by trans POC heroes? Well boys, here we go again. At 83 years of age I would expect Takei not to be affected by the rewriting of history and to make a more intelligent statement. I'm disappointed in his stupidity.

Another example of anti-trans bitches trashing gays on a gay board. Yes, a gay man you don't like is obviously a sexual criminal. That's what the gays all are, right? Sex pests, according to you rightwing trolls.
Speaking of trolling, some of you like rescue-chick were on the Aunt Jemima threads and the threads about statues coming down making racist comments about blacks. Yesterday's anti-trans thread was full of you guys calling Jews a "race." Lots of you, like the Matt Taibbi troll, talk about how "the Jews" are behind the trans movement with their money and their evil powers. Many of you are on political threads saying Democrats are awful, and you try to convince people not to vote for Biden.

People tend to forget that the Stonewall riots were started by obese blind transgender little POC who had escaped slavery in their native Iceland.

This magical little incantation — “Stonewall was started by trans women of color” — is repeated over and over again regardless of its historical inaccuracy. People now accept it as fact without ever questioning whether it’s true, which, of course, it’s not. But they’ve heard it so many times that it MUST be right. Trying to correct this nonsense is nearly impossible because the wokest of the woke don’t care about the truth. They’ve determined this is the most appropriate narrative, so, everyone else suck it. The rest of the people just go along because that’s what they’ve heard, so “no big deal.” 🙄
And gay men are being erased from their own history. 😡

No, R46. The history was what it was. It's only been since the recent emergence of the alt-right that triggered racist incel trolls started crying about the already well-established contributions of minorities.

It's absolutely not a lie, R61. It plays into a narrative of gay men being weak sissies and I think that's why so many breathlessly accept it as fact. The whole gay liberation movement in the last few years has been redefined as being led by trans people. While they no doubt had a part to play, it effectively erases gay men and lesbians from their history.

Sigh. Consistently wrong on all your assumptions, including the one about trans women of color being the people who started the Stonewall Riots.
Can you actually back up with some facts — and not just hyperbole — that often repeated but erroneous contention about TQPOC being the prime motivators at Stonewall? Because the photos certainly don’t. And the contemporaneous reports don’t either.
It’s such an odd claim to make when you examine it further, because these same TQPOC women who allegedly ignited a movement were largely invisible when the hard work of securing rights began in the weeks, months, and years thereafter.

R63, Drag queens were also in the category of transvestite. It's all kind of muddied together there's never really been a clear cut distinction between crossdressers, drag-queens and transvestites. I do know that drag queens used to call themselves trannies until it became offensive to transgenders. Now they're not allowed to use that word. So I guess you can say trans have been poaching language since the beginning.

Everytime you see someone stating the Marsha P led Stonewall, simply add a comment with this link to HER ACTUAL AUDIO INTERVIEW stating SHE DIDN"T GET THERE til AFTERWARDS and that Syliva Rivera was passed out on a park bench.
Natl Geographic was in Apple News with a Pride article and at least it said something like "many people say Marsha threw the first brick, but in her own statement she said she didn't arrive til later".
copy and save this link and post it to all the LIARS out there! it's also in the movie about Marsha P on Netflix. Where she says "I am a gay man"
