The author is trying to be neutral and not supporting any argument but he lets his true opinion show by accident. The author is against gay rights and he showcase this when he called gays little girls.
Stonewall inn is a gay recreational tavern and gay bar in Greenwich village, New York, United States. There was a riots in 1969 in Stonewall which lead to the liberation of gay rights. Marsha Johnson was an American gay rights activist who fought for the liberation of gay rights. The Stonewall inn was published in the New York times.
The tone of the author toward the patrons to the Stonewall Inn is humorous, mocking and tinged with sarcasm.
In the first paragraph he described one of the patrons as, "She was a he." In one paragraph he wrote that, "Then, without warning, Queen Power exploded with all the fury of a gay atomic bomb. Queens, princesses and ladies-in-waiting began hurling anything they could get their polished, manicured hands on. Bobby pins, compacts, curlers, lipstick tubes and other femme fatale missiles were flying in the direction of the cops. The war was on. The lilies of the valley had become carnivorous jungle plants." Its as if the author is against the patrons.
The Stonewall riots were a series of violent raids by the police on a homosexual bar. This particular article was written by Jerry Lisker for the New York Daily News in 1966.
The author of the article used a mocking and sarcastic tone in narrating the events, even the title of the article, "Homo Nest Raided, Queen Bees are Stinging Mad" clearly shows the author's mindset about the patron.
He consistently and deliberately uses male pronouns in describing the patrons and then corrects himself to female pronouns afterwards, and he called them "little girls" to show what he thinks of them no matter who they say the are.
In one place a patron even told him "I don't like your paper, its anti-us and pro-cop.", and he didn't correct her.
