Interesting link. Persuasive argument. Will be interesting to see what happens as this dialogue continues:

there's a petition for everything these days. But I hope the filmmakers see this one and I hope it effects their bottom line.

I have a very scratch the surface knowledge of stonewall.....but I'm familiar with the rock through the window thrown by a trans woman. That they so blatantly portrayed that symbolic event (slo-motion close up and all) and replaced her with a white male is pretty indicting. That's like replacing Rosa Parks with an old white male who refuses to sit at the front of the bus.

And then for his response to say 'We're all fighting the same struggle' just displays his lack of understanding for other perspectives. I'll sign that petition.
