First off, pull the kiddies from the room because I’m in the mood for swearing ….
Last Friday was the National Day of Silence, an event that draws attention to the bullying of LGBTQ youth in our nation’s schools, but it also turned into a day at one Oregon school for four young idiots to show their ignorance and homophobia.
The four students in question wore shirts emblazoned with the messages that “Gay Is Not Ok" and "Gay Day Is Not OK," ironically two of the very reasons the National Day of Silence was created in the first place. But these little fuck-monkeys don’t get that, in fact, one of them — who won’t give his name because he’d rather hide behind anonymity, said:
"I don't believe that ["gay day"] is ok. I don't have a big problem with gay people. It's just when they start parading around the school about how we have a day of silence for gays, lesbians, transvestites -- it's like, !"
You stupid little piece of %$#&! First off it's lesbian, gay and transgender students, so if you wanna protest something at least know the facts. Secondly, isn't every day a straight day, you moron, and then, please, tell me when you last saw a straight person bullied to death for being straight?
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I know straight kids get bullied, but not for their sexual orientation; they get bullied for other ridiculous reasons, like their skin color, hair color, weight, freckles, height, but not ever because they are heterosexual.
So again, every day is a straight day.
Luckily, most of the 2,000 other students at the school, as well as administrators, didn’t feel the same way as these four morons. In fact, school officials told The Four Fuck-Monkeys that they could not wear the "Gay Day Is Not Ok" shirts on campus, and that the students would be required to turn the shirts inside out or take them off.
Here’s the deal: I get that some folks don’t think gay is ok, but to that I say, so what? Who does it hurt? Not one of these four idiots ever suffered any indignation or bullying or teasing or taunting, never thought about ending their lives, because of their sexual orientation, and the fact that they don’t get that their shirts are the very reason for the day, screams more about their ignorance and intolerance and stupidity than anything else.
The National Day of Silence doesn’t “celebrate” being gay — and even if it did, who the fuck cares? The day is meant to remind us that LGBTQ youth are being tortured daily in schools around this country and we need to make it stop. It reminds us that kids are killing themselves rather than face one more day of being teased and taunted and harassed and we need to make it stop.
A ‘Gay Is Not Ok’ shirt is exactly why we need the National Day of Silence and too bad these four little fuck-monkeys are too stupid to realize that. And the next time there's a day of silence ... shut the fuck up.
