    Default Day of Silence

    Did anyone else participate in the Day of Silence today? Basically, if you support gay/les/bi rights and oppose the hate crimes and killing of people like that (Particularily the shooting of Lawrence King this year), you weren't supposed to say a word all day, from 6 am to 6 pm. You get these "speaking cards" which explain to teachers and other students why you arent talking and about the cause of the event.

    Here's the Wiki article if you'd like to know exactly what it is.

    It's held in April every year, this years was today. Did anyone else participate in it?
    Edit: By the way, I'm not asking if this is a cause you support, I'm asking if you did the event today or plan to in the future. I'm straight but I still participated today, since some of my friends are bi and supported the cause too.

    I wasn't even aware that this existed, but if it's any consolation to you I was sleeping through most of it so I guess I did my part.

    I probably wouldn't participate in the future, because a day of silence won't affect change.

    If you want to help "end the silence," then speak out against it. Shout louder than the aggressors, and let the cries of support drown out the voice of intolerance.

    Sitting there quietly only serves to make yourself feel better.

    Yeah, I know that it makes more sense to speak up about it but the silence thing is supposed to spread awareness about it. People obviously ask questions when you dont talk all day, then you show them the card and they learn about it...
    The cards all explain about whats happening and about the cause, I guess it's something like a sit-in protest. Doing nothing to do something =/ I just heard about it this year and this is my first year participating so I dont know that much about it.

    No, and why?

    Because I do not like to partake in senseless gimmicks to raise 'awareness' of causes. I think people are aware by now that people with 'alternative lifestyles' to use the euphemism do have a very, very rotten hand in terms of society's and government's view of them.

    However, I think that partaking in a certain action type of action does not help to alleviate this rotten hand. Rather it seems more like one of the many 'days' set up to make people feel better about themselves because they're 'political' and 'hip' and 'alternative'. Sadly, more and more political action is becoming less about politics and more of a fashion statement.

    I understand the awareness part, but for every person that asks there are a hundred more that won't even notice.

    Though I imagine putting a rainbow gag in your mouth like the wiki suggests would help raise a few eyebrows.

    I've been pretty much silent all day apart from through some of College.

    Wow, it goes to show that people never tell me anything anymore!!(or it's the fact that I'm too lazy to find any inforamtion about anything 0.0).

    I'm straight, but I would support it, these people are people too, and it's not a crime to love someone of the same gender.

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    No, sorry, I wouldn't be able to because I work today and I have to like...answer phones and things of that nature. Being totally silent is mutually exclusive from work. But, obviously, I do support the cause.

    There are better ways to show your support for something than keeping your mouth shut.

    I was at home sick today (again...), so I didn't really have a chance to (though, since I was home alone all day, I didn't talk, so maybe that counts?). But if I hadn't been sick, I definitely would have. I had some friends who did it, and I was very glad they did. I support the cause a lot.

    I never knew anything about this, but I wouldn't do something so severe that wouldn't help the cause in anyway.

    They did this every April in my highscool. A large group of students not saying anything the entire day. I did'nt do it. Cause I personally don't see the point.
    SMILE!

    Yes, but this has a special meaning behind, the supporters remain silence because most of the homo/bi/transexuals we in one way or another forced to keep there identity/sexuality a secret [plus the fact it is kind of a national thing and it is not just someone saying the support]. So to show there support [regardless of your own sexuality] you keep quite, kind of show the irony in it.


    To answer Kitsune's question yes I did take part in the National Day of Silence[ Both my friends Haley and I have for the last four years], at my school at least 20-30 students did, most of the staff understood, however you always have a meanie in the group *coughenglishteacherscough* which do not agree.

    Interesting because she send my friend Christian to the principal's office even though she was told days ahead that he would not speak that day, prejudice much?


    If you really support something then it is not too hard to shut up for 24 hours, anyway who knows me know just how much I talk [lol I think kitsune knows =S] and I was able to control it well I still have about 4 hours to go.

    My point was, that if you show vocal support for something, it's a hell of a lot more effective about displaying your support and achieving understanding from others than keeping your mouth shut. It sounds like a toned down version of martyrdom, for which one can accomplish a lot more alive than they can dead.

    i attempted to, but ended up talking to my mom right in the car when she asked why my boyfriend called late last night
    thoughts of my boyfriend distracted me from keeping my mouth shut for the cause, how pathetic
    most of my friends participated in it today and wore ducktape on their mouths too, to support it
    they even had an announcement about it on our school announcements

    that sounds real sweet and nice...it's always good to see people willing to work together to support and care for those in need. =]

    No I didn't participate in this. In fact it is actually amusing. I can't see how this helps the issue at all.

    Why would i want to support it. Look, i get it. Your gay. Big woop. It's nothing to have a day of silence about so that people are "aware" of it. Why not i create a heterosexual day. It's pretty much the same thing but you don't see anybody celebrating it. I don't hate gays, i just find this whole gay pride and day of silence thing silly. The gay community wants to be equal, but making flags and doing day's of awareness would do the opposite.
