The most ignorant act ever conceived by mankind. Refers to a day set aside to protest the harassment of gay people. Most gay people are victims of reverse ignorance
. They fail to realize that other minorites are harassed equally as much if not more than they are, yet still think they are above everyone else. It is endorsed in public schools, teaching children that gays are higher than other minorites, and should be treated with more respect. The Day of Silence is most often supported by non-gay, ignorant people. They think they are doing a good thing, but again fail to realize their own elitist ignorance.
(Teacher)"Okay, class, today we are celebrating the Day of Silence, to show that gays shouldn't be opressed."
(Mexican)"Oh boy, do we have a Day of Silence?"
(Mexican)"Why not? We're oppressed too."
(Teacher)"Yes, but gay people are above everyone else. See, you might be oppressed, but nobody cares because gay people are much more important than you."
(Mexican)"Oh, I see. Thanks, teach!"
