Amazon Question of the Day - historic revisionism

I’m not sure where to post this, but yesterday. Amazons Question of the Day, one of their Alexa apps, asked ‘which of the following historical figures started the Stonewall riots’. I knew before the options were read out that Amazon was going to say Marsha P Johnson. Amazon them went on to misgender Johnson, referring to him as ‘her’ and ‘she’, even though there are interviews available where Johnson describes himself as a gay man in drag.

It feels like a losing battle to get the correct version of history out there.

Interestingly, Storme, the butch lesbian who did kick it all off, didn’t get a mention.

Storme never does get a mention. As always, the L in LGBTetc is silent.
