Welcome To Our Homosexual Day of Silence

April 15th, 2011

By Nancy Morgan

Gay PrideFriday, April 15, the Homosexual Day of Silence is being promoted in government schools across the country.

Welcome students. Today is the big day. Today is your chance to take a stand against the forces of bigotry and homophobia that unfairly targets our brothers, sisters and others in the gay, lesbian, transgendered, bisexual and gender optional community.

By your very presence here, you signify your complete acceptance and approval of alternative lifestyles, sex on demand and the right of all to engage in whatever sexual practices feel good at the moment.  You should be proud. And you may all now officially consider yourself enlightened. And empowered.

I want to thank all of you for not bowing down to the fanatical and intolerant Christians who hate sex. I want to acknowledge your bravery, tolerance and dedication to the concept of gender neutrality and the right of every man, woman and others to choose whichever sexual orientation they prefer.

We all recognize the problems you all encounter in your support of these basic human rights. And one day soon, thanks to you, gay men will not have to face the abject discrimination of being forced to use a men’s room. Pretty soon, I envision a world where all gender challenged people will be judged by the content of their character instead of their sexual orientation.

Until that day comes, however, I urge you to continue to flaunt your sexuality in the faces of those who, incredibly, still object to men swapping spit with other men. Remember, they are repressed. It’s not their fault. They just don’t “get it.”

I’d also like to thank our generous sponsors, your very own teacher’s union. Thanks to them, we have arranged a variety of field trips and a several opportunities for activism. Sign up sheets are available and you will all get class credit and a small stipend for your participation.

Sorry Jannella, we’re not taking questions. This is a day of silence. Just listen and don’t comment. Unless of course, you’re a homophobe….

As I was saying, (could you please quiet down there in back), this school is behind you all the way and will be happy to sponsor any “spontaneous” gatherings in support of our LGBT community. Our print shop has designed and printed several posters you can choose from. (What? No, sorry, we’re all out of the Jesus is a Fag signs.)

Because those mean-spirited Republicans just forced Obama to decimate the budget, our teacher’s union has been forced to limit the usual per diem. Of course, if your protest makes it to national TV, we’ll happily reconsider.

Because this is a national day of silence, I’d like to suggest some excellent visual opportunities. I have several tubes of lipstick for any of you guys out there. Having you boys wear lipstick is a great way to banish the remaining stereotypes of manly men. For you gals, we have these cute buttons with pictures of manly women and effeminate men. (Yes, Henry, you can have both lipstick and a button.)

Last but not least, I’d like to announce our Homosexual Pride essay contest. Our generous teacher’s union has offered a grand prize of $500.00 for whomever pens the most articulate and inflammatory essay. The topic is: How Marriage Between a Man and a Woman is Unconstitutional. The winner and runner-up will also be given a pass on math and science for the rest of the semester. (Quiet down!!! This is a day of silence!)

For those of you in the lower grades that haven’t yet learned to write, we’re offering a prize for the best poster. If you need some help, just holler. Just kidding! Ha, ha.

I’d like to thank all of you for your support. I’d also like to stress that your participation in this momentous event is mandatory. We’d appreciate it if you didn’t mention this to your parents. Believe it or not, some parents would object. I know, I know. But take heart in the fact that pretty soon they’ll see the light. NAMBLA has a table right over there that offers lots of good information that should come in handy should you need to educate your parents.

You are all excused from classes for the rest of the day. Now go out there and make your silence heard!

    This is so ridiculous it’s hard to believe, even though it’s been happening for 15 years. How did we get to the point where we permit teachers (who are public employees paid by tax dollars) to indoctrinate children this way? How did a very small subgroup of our population (less than five percent) gain so much power that they can demand such obeisance?

    I realize that objecting to this can result in being branded as a bigot or as some other sort of low-life, but anyone who has read much of what I’ve written knows that I’m not at all anti-gay. What I object to is forced indoctrination of children in public schools, often in ways that run counter to the values their families try to teach them.

    Why can’t we manage to require teachers to simply educate children without all the brainwashing?

    Ms. Morgan, what you’ve written is vulgar. Do your really thing being gay is synonymous with anonymous sex and gender confusion? You need to get out and meet some of the decent, honest, hard-working same-sex families that comprise our communities. I think it would lead you question the validity of your disingenuous, vitriol.

    More than a few will agree with your sentiments.
    The “in your face” attitude of many that champion “Gay Rights” serves to hinder rather than help their cause. This is demonstrated by the comments set forth by Mark and his rather sharp critique of your article. I’ve never understood the notion that any critical analysis of homosexual or lesbian life styles is an indication of severe homophobia.

  4. Mark |

    Larry, Ms. Morgan didn’t offer critical analysis of anything. She authored a snarky, sarcastic, mean-spirited essay completely void of fact or compelling argument. It is Ms. Morgan who has penned an “in your face” statement intended to denigrate an entire community of people she has never met, doesn’t know, but has somehow decided she dislikes.

    Mark, the plain fact is that US students are behind most of the industrialized world in math and science. Utilizing 1 second of school time to promote this agenda makes the situation worse, not better. As technology advances, it becomes more important, not less, that our kids learn math and science.

    A high school graduate should be able to write a 2-page paper free of grammatical and spelling errors; understand the Pythagorean theorem and its practical use; know what an electron cloud is; have read and gotten some understanding of Locke, Bastiat, and Montesquieue; know the difference between a bit and a byte and have a rudimentary understanding of binary and hexadecimal numbers; know the difference between a parallel and in-series circuit, and the difference between a Watt, an Ohm, an ampere, and voltage; be able to conduct a basic conversation in a language other than English.

    If you can figure out how teaching “acceptance” fits into all of that, I’m all ears.

    Brian, the plain fact is that Nancy Morgan isn’t concerned that the Day of Silence might take time from educational pursuits. Her article is about her ideological agenda (to borrow your word). I agree wholeheartedly our country is falling dangerously behind in the global scheme of things. I work for a fortune 30 company. I’ve watched jobs go to India, China, Brazil, and myriad other countries. The people who work in those jobs are highly educated, multilingual, and tremendously capable. I agree that education is paramount. But aren’t there a lot of extracurricular activities and events that take time away from educational activities? Yet somehow I suspect you’re okay with those. Your argument for educational excellence is valid. Using it to justify Ms. Morgan’s article is ridiculous. It’s time conservative Christians stop hiding behind disingenuous arguments. It’ll save everyone a lot of time.

    Well, Mark, I’m not a Christian, I’m not a conservative, and I’m not anti-gay. And still, I don’t like the fact that public school teachers engage in indoctrinating children in their personal beliefs. Parents pay for public schools through their taxes, and while they shouldn’t be able to nit-pick curricula, they certainly have a right to object to political indoctrination of their children. Extracurricular activities do exist and are very worthwhile, as long as we’re talking about sports, academic-oriented clubs (e.g., the Spanish Club), debate teams, spelling bees, educational field trips, etc.

    I don’t object to instruction in high school about political topics, including religion (comparative religion is a fascinating field of study), abortion, gun control, gay rights, war and peace, the roles of government, law and the Constitution, et al. The line is crossed when teachers go from teaching both sides of political issues to advocating the side they presonally prefer.

    But aren’t there a lot of extracurricular activities and events that take time away from educational activities? Yet somehow I suspect you’re okay with those.

    That’s called a “straw man.” Nancy isn’t railing against extra-curricular activities, she’s railing against this being part of a curriculum. Further, extra-curricular activities are VOLUNTARY. By dff, curricular activities are not voluntary.

    And in point of fact, I couldn’t care one whit less what 2 consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedroom. Since kids are required to go to school, I do strenuously object to teaching them a subject which I find as distasteful as buggery. Does “Heather has Two Mommies” better enable a child to understand the chain rule, the difference between starting friction and moving friction, the difference between ionic and covalent bonds, the difference between mala en se and mala prohibita, the future subjunctive of tener, the difference between Romance and Classical?

  9. Mark |

    Brian, Day of Silence is intended to teach young people the consequences of anti-gay bullying, nothing more. I’m not sure why you’d find that distasteful.

    As I said before, Nancy Morgan penned a sarcastic, acrimonious column fraught with malevolence and ridicule. Read it again. Nothing in it even remotely speaks to academics or school curriculum. Nancy deals in histrionics and the incendiary, not reasoned argument. You are finding context in what she’s written that simply doesn’t exist.

    Each day I take solace in the fact that the vitriol and animosity Nancy Morgan proudly directs towards gay people is increasingly becoming a thing of the past. The genie, as they say, is out of the bottle. And it’s never going back. I’ll leave it at that.

    Mark, there’s nothing so very, very special about being gay or suffering discrimination or bullying over it. Unless, of course, pushing the related political agenda is the real objective of something like Day of Silence.

    If kids in public schools were being taught about the negative and potentially disastrous consequences of bullying in general, that would be a good thing. Kids inflict and/or suffer from bullying all the time, for all kinds of reasons — athletes vs. non-athletes, dumb kids vs. smart kids, one race vs. another, boys vs. girls, girls vs. boys, straights vs. gays, and on and on. The effects of bullying on gays aren’t materially worse than other kinds of bullying.

    Also consider the very small percentage of people in the population who are actually gay — five percent or less, by the most recent data. There is far more bullying for other reasons, and it’s equally destructive for the victims.
