I mean, hey, if you’re queer and you want to participate in Day of Silence, that is really awesome and I’m happy that you’ve chosen to do such a difficult thing and I respect whatever method you have for equality.
Don’t try to convert me to wanting to participate because, like, I get the point, and I’ve tried to make it happen four years in a row.
The American queer community choosing to fall into collective silence on a set date is supposed to get the attention of cishet people, because queers are silenced every day. And you know what? It does work. The silence always gets the attention. But, it’s always negative. The past four events for me have just been friends trying to force me to talk all day.
And, hey, listen
I don’t want to be a part of a whole day where the cishets get to sit back and relax because the queers are completely silent.
