NATIONAL DAY OF SILENCE - March 7th 2012, 08:10 PM

SO I'VE BEEN PLANNING TO DO THE NATIONAL DAY OF SILENCE FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS NOW. WHO'S WITH ME?
I FOUND A POEM ON THE 'DO SOMETHING' WEBSITE AND I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE IT WITH THE LGBT COMMUNITY AROUND HERE. HERE IT IS.

Silence implies consent.
Silence is more musical than any song.
The innocent is the person who explains nothing.
Silence is the genius of fools and one of the virtues of the wise.
Silence will save me from being wrong, but it will also deprive me of the possibility of being right.
Be silent, or speak something worth hearing.
Silence is one of the hardest arguments to refuse.
In human interaction the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood.
The tree of silence bears the fruit of peace.
Silence is a fence around wisdom
When something important is going on, silence is a lie.
It’s better to keep one’s mouth shut and be thought a fool rather than open it and resolve all doubt.
The most profound statements are often said in silence.
What a blessing it would be if we could open and shut our ears as easily as we do our eyes.
Still waters run deep.
Silence is golden when you can’t think of a good answer.
True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
Their silence is sufficient praise.
Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.
He who does not know how to be silent will not know how to speak.
Men of few words are the best men.
I have often regretted my speech, never my silence.
There are grammatical errors even in his silence.
Silence is also speech.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Silence is a text easy to misread.
To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.
A man’s silence is wonderful to listen to.
Keep your mouth closed until your mind is in gear.
Silence is never more golden than when you hold it long enough to get all the facts before you speak.
Silence is golden.
I went down with the ship but I kept my mouth shut so I didn’t drown like the rest of them.
Silence and reserve will give anyone a reputation for wisdom.

I don't personally participate (for reasons I will not disclose), but I support the cause and the point of it. I encourage everyone to think about doing it if that's what they feel is right.

Really, they picked 420 for the Day of Silence? WTH?

I'll definitely try to participate. For some reason I always miss the important events, though. >> I'm hoping that we will be able to meet with our GSA at least once more before the event, just to get more people on board.

I don't think I necessarily agree with the poem, but I DO support the cause.
I won't be participating in it this year, as I work as a barista. Which.. requires me to talk to people.

I do it every year. I think if you have a job or oral exam, that is completely different than just not supporting the cause. You can still support even if you have to for work, by posting about it on Facebook when the days are coming up, and showing positive recognition when somebody is doing it. There are so many ways to support! And to the haters of National Day of Silence, peaceful revolution is the most loud. Day of Silence shows people the voices you do not hear when you want to try and silence the gay movement. No, you're not "giving into" the expectations or whatever. I hear so much hate against Day of Silence, and I really don't understand it.

I'm gonna try, I don't know how I'd be able to do that during school, but I'll talk to my teachers about it. Even if it means staying silent until I'm ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED to talk... you know?

Edit: Talked to my mom bout it. Basically, she said, screw school, talk to your teachers about it, tell them the reason, stand up for your rights. So I WILL be participating.

Thanks so much everyone.
The thing that cinched it for me was when 3 guys in my physics class said "Being GAY is just a PHASE" ummmm excuse me, its a lifestyle, not a phase. most of us didn't choose to be this way. we were BORN THIS WAY.

... Now that I know about what it is, I'd like to participate, but I wouldn't know how. Moments like this makes me really wish my school had a GSA, too bad they decided to say "NO" to me, but they'll have an anti-bullying club that has basically done nothing but talk to people who were just trying to find out if some rumour was true.


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times

But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

Unfortunately, I won't be participating this year. I have to host an event that day. However, I definitely support the cause and I'll be encouraging those who are being silent on that day.

A lot of people will carry something with them to show their teachers explaining what they're doing and why. Every teacher I've encountered has respected that and left the student alone for the day.

That is extremely true, and I hope that most teachers will respect that. I'm not sure if I actually will be able to do it, since I have a really difficult time talking to adults about this sort of thing, so I probably will even get too nervous to bring it up to the GSA adviser, but I'm going to be as silent as I can anyway.

That's what my mom said. She suggested like, a button or pin to stick on my shirt, or I suggested making a shirt, etc. I'm also blessed that I have very understanding teachers, so I believe I won't have much of a problem. I also have a speech impediment, anyways, so I will be glad to not have to talk for an entire day haha xD
All jokes aside, I can't wait. I attend a very homophobic school, and I can't wait to show them that it's okay, I'm okay, and they should be too. I'm hoping I won't be the only one at my school participating, but if I am, I'm gonna show those students that bullying in any form is not okay, love is love regardless of gender, and that tolerance is key to living a long and happy life.

I'm so looking forward to the National Day of Silence! I did it last year with my friend we took white boards to school to spread why we were silent. We got most of the people in the school to participate it was so fun.

Re: NATIONAL DAY OF SILENCE - March 18th 2012, 08:27 PM

That's what the Day of Silence is? At my high school they told us we were being silent for those who don't have a voice (children in sweatshops, children living in poverty, etc.), not for LGBT issues. Of course, I do go to a Catholic high school, so that probably has something to do with it... And this is one of the reasons I don't identify with churches (I'm a Christian independent from any churches).

Dude, when it's time again for the Day of Silence, I'm totally dressing in... wait, we have a uniform... I'll just wear LGBT accessories, unless of course it's a dress down day. Must...find...LGBT buttons! Maybe that one friend I know has them... Yep, pretty sure she does.

That is an amazing idea! I'll do it too!
But hold on, it is the "National" Day of Silence and I am in India, I guess I should still do it right?

Our campus's GSA-esque group is holding an entire Pride Week leading up to the DOS on 4//20
I know this cuz I'm on the committee


“I can only hope that they’ll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects … I hope that every professional gay will say ‘enough’, come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978
