The “Day of Silence” is an annual event that gives students “the power to bring attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT language and bullying and the need to make our schools safe and affirming for all youth, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”
One group of students in Pennsylvania has decided to organize their own day with a message.
“Anti-Gay Day” is the brainchild of bigots, obviously raised by intolerance, whose intentions are to not only shame the gay community in their school, but to outright threaten them.
Donning flannel shirts because they don’t think gay people would wear them, (and don’t understand the irony of them color-coordinating their outfits), and writing ‘anti-gay’ on their hands; the bullies set out to terrorize their gay classmates.
Part of their grand scheme of ignorance was to create a “lynch list” of students they believed to be gay.
Zoe Johnson, a student at McGuffy High School, told WPXI:
It hurts me to see how rude and cruel, and some of these people were my friends before this started. Yesterday, there was pushing, posters hung on homosexual students’ lockers. Teachers were having to run out and take them down.
Other students reported that they were afraid to go to school that day amidst the wave of hate.
