Above, out MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts discusses the significance of National Day of Silence tomorrow, April 20, when students across the country will a vow of silence to call attention to anti-LGBT bullying. Founded in 1996 at the University of Virginia, the Day of Silence is the largest student-led action aimed at creating a safe environment for all schoolkids. This year students from more than 8,000 middle schools, high schools and universities are expected to participate.
Very nice! If this changes just one person’s mind, or makes one kid feel safer, it was worth it!
I actually did this in my last year of high school. And during homeroom before 1st period,, all of the teachers heard that I was going to do this and in each of my classes we talked about it. I ended up just nodding & writing my words down to communicate. Eventually by 1st recess, alot of the school campus was pretty quiet. So i think it went rather well 🙂 gonna do it this years again!
The day of silence doesn’t actually do anything and it’s pointless.
Another Dumb effort that helps keep a few elitists from having to hold real jobs….sounds familiar…
C’mon all you closeted gay guys who are indistinguishable from straight men, come out of the closet so that the idiotic editors of Queerty can get their jollies refering to you as “queens” and “maids of honor”.
Because afterall, everybody knows if you’re homosexual you really want to put on a dress and tiarra and wear make-up, right?
