Day of silence

Posted 08 April 2002 - 05:46 PM

its on wednesday and lgbt* youth and their supporters are silently protesting the real silencing of queer youth. the protestors silence is symbolic of the harrasment, violence and general not-coolness inflicted on them everyday. yeah so i'm participating in this and i just wanted to post it

#1 cos its good to get this info around

#2 i'm participating and i wont be posting that day (gasp! oh no what ever shall you do? :rolleyes:.) and

#3 if anyones intrested in getting involved you can go here www.glsen.org for more info and

#4 even if you dont agree or accept homosexuals i dont think its too much to ask that a person not get beat up, yelled at or killed cos of what they do with a consenting person of an age where they can reason and judge in the privacy of their own homes.

thank you for reading and spread the love.

*lgbt stands for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered.

Reuters: The Rev. Jerry Falwell said gays, feminists, "pagans," and a host of liberal advocacy groups have made "God mad" and must share the blame for the terrorist attacks this week that took the lives of thousands of Americans at the World Trade Center in New York and at the Pentagon outside Washington.

Falwell made his remarks Thursday, Sept. 13, while appearing on the religious television program The 700 Club, hosted by the Rev. Pat Robertson. Falwell and Robertson are among the nation’s strongest opponents of gay civil rights.

"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way — all of them who have tried to secularize America — I point the finger in their face and say, ‘You helped this happen,’" Falwell said on the program, which was broadcast nationally.

Dude, this character is whack!

Anyway, good for standing up Jain, it's a good thing. We'll miss ya here.
