Announcing the Stonewall National Monument

Announcing the Stonewall National Monument

“I’m designating the Stonewall National Monument as the newest addition to America’s national parks system. Stonewall will be our first national monument to tell the story of the struggle for LGBT rights. I believe our national parks should reflect the full story of our country – the richness and diversity and uniquely American spirit that has always defined us. That we are stronger together. That out of many, we are one.” – President Barack Obama

On June 24, 2016 President Obama designated the site of the Stonewall uprising and birthplace of the modern LGBT civil rights movement the “Stonewall National Monument.” This new monument is a testament to the diversity, inclusiveness, and individual freedom that make America great.

    We get it. LGBT is ok. I’m fine with Gays, Lesbos and Trans. When will we
    stop hearing about how great they are because to me they’re just like any
    other fucking person here.

    constitutional right of equality?

    Nothings wrong being gay. Gay, bisexual, and lesbian are tolerable as long
    as they’re not ignorant and annoying like Tumblr feminists. Every other
    made up “identity” is just stupid.

    Homosexuality is not deviancy. It isn’t a plague, or the end of Nations to
    come. It’s two dudes who wanna bone each other. Big fucking deal.

    When I read the comment section, I immediately understand why slavery
    existed, nazi’s extermination camps existed, isis bullshit happens, and all
    sort of terrible things that happened in history.

    Keep in mind that at some point, we’re not fighting for ourselves only but
    for the next generation. And thankfully, equal rights will happen and none
    will suffer your old views anymore, because you’ll be dead and your twisted
    minds too!
    Choke on it homophobes!

    busy questioning moral values.

    You know, I really thought that maybe by even a little our country was
    improving. Here where I live, lgb people are accepted, and it should be
    like that everywhere else. But when you come here, a place where people
    from all over America talk, I can see I was wrong. I feel like our country
    has gotten even worse with this. And all the people saying they are tired
    of it being shoved at them, like no shit it will be because there was just
    a mass shooting. There needs to be awareness so that stupid homophobes can
    finally die off. We are all human, and our world has much bigger problems
    than this. If everybody is becoming homophobic, then where do us gays go?
    We will have nowhere to go. And how is that fair?

    Why can’t Obama commemorate some of these straight white people who never
    had to deal with any of the hate or anger directed towards them for who
    they are?!?!?!?!
