Now, someone wants to take credit for throwing the first brick? The only thing that matters at all is that Stonewall happened. @pjm1: Please name me just one time where attacking police worked out well for an individual. So now we’re debating about who deserves credit for being violent first? They fall into three categories: earnest attempts to honor giants in the LGBTQ movement (“Marsha P. Johnson threw the first brick at Stonewall”), tongue-in-cheek diva worship (“Madonna threw the first brick at Stonewall”) and satirical takedowns of straight celebrities who overplay their hand trying to be queer allies (“Nick Jonas threw the first brick at Stonewall”). Well it matters a lot because history is the result of actions taken by human beings. It was a spectrum of resistance” which manifested at the very start of the raid and gradually escalated. Does anyone give a shit who threw what? They have a victimhood/matyr complex, which has given them a superiority complex, and a massively overfeed ego. I think it would be significant to know (at the very LEAST as historical trivia) but since we’ll never know for sure we might as well stop debating it. @Sluggo2007: I’m sure the racial divide didn’t start with the President, however many will give him credit for it.

Johnson with inciting the Stonewall uprising gave me pause. My favorite anecdote was a disagreement about whether men’s beards posed a masculine insult to women.

Did Johnson allegedly give it a girly underhanded toss, or pitch a real fastball like a dude ? . By Morgan M. Page Twitter As a older gay it’s sad to see it happen but I guess it is the price of becoming part of the norm. Who gives a shit? . her as being in semi-drag, not full drag. It’s absolutely reprehensible the comments and actions anti-whites and specifically against masculine and cisgender white guys. There is so much focus on who did what first when the key factor for me is that everyone joined together and basically said they were not taking it anymore. As far as instigating violence? @dtpm: Europe. . I would not throw bricks at people. it seems reasonable to conclude that Marsha Johnson was almost indubitably among the first to I mean, a loud yelling and screaming . I bet gays still can’t figure out why a show like Looking can’t find a broad audience in an increasingly multicultural society. These people created a monumental movement within society and within our community if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t have the fight we now have within each and everyone on us fighting for our rights to be treated with dignity and respect, our rights to marry the one we love, our right to visit our loved one in the hospital , our right to adopt a child , etc…. thing, screaming and yelling and throwing rocks and almost like Molly Pitcher in the revolution Does it really matter who threw the first stone, or that the stone was thrown at all?

They fought, and we should fight on because the struggle continues. I’ll wait. The first brick, without the throwing of all the other bricks and the collective action of a bunch of queens and “regular” fags (what we were called back then) who were just fed up with how they were being treated by the police — the first brick would have been an act of vandalism. It’s the best researched and most accurate recounting of those stormy nights. Ray clearly had quite a vivid imagination.

Much like the right wing christians, you can’t reason with them. @Cam: are you talking about Sylvia Rivera ? I wonder what the earliest written accounts say? @Masc Pride: the early morning of June 28, 1969, Who fired the arrow that hit King Harold in the eye?
