Day Of Silence: Feeling Good about Doing Nothing

Today is the Day of Silence, a new initiative in New Zealand to battle things like Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. The ideal behind it quoted from the site is as thus: ‘The National Day of Silence is a day of action in which students across the country vow to take a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, name-calling and harassment in schools’ I personally have a problem with this, because though it’s goal is worthy, it’s method and execution leave something to be desired. 699 more words

Why I Will Never Take Part in the "Day of Silence"

How can you possibly initiate change when you’re unwilling to speak out against oppression and injustice?

Despite the obvious contradiction, countless LGBT students participate in the Day of Silence every year. 211 more words
