Of all the subversive, politically correct ideas that government schools cram down the throats of our children, this one takes the cake for stupidity...
DAY OF SILENCE, April 18, 2007: The Day of Silence is an annual event held to commemorate and protest anti-LGBT bullying, harassment and discrimination in schools. Students and teachers nationwide will observe the day in silence to echo the silence that LGBT and ally students face everyday. In it's 11th year, the Day of Silence is one of the largest student-led actions in the country.
Look, I'm not in favor of mistreating anybody. Mistreatment should be punished appropriately whether the subject of the mistreatment is gay or straight. This is another example of the public school system (which by definition is the federal government) indoctrinating your children with liberal ideology by forcing them to embrace the gay lifestyle. If you go to the Day of Silence website, you'll find buttons and T-shirts encouraging sympathy for the gay lifestyle...buttons and T-shirts that teachers should encourage students to wear to show solidarity with their gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered class-mates.
Since when is whining and moaning about the occasional mistreatment of gays in schools considered learning? Kids get mistreated all the time for any variety of reasons. It's part of the growing up process. If nutty, moonbat parents want to indoctrinate their own kids with this stream-of-consciousness drivel about the gay lifestyle, fine, but it shouldn't be forced on them by teachers in the government schools.
