    On the National Day of Silence hundreds of thousands of students nationwide take a vow of silence to bring attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in their schools.

    I'm doing it but is anyone elses doing it?

    Even straight people can do it, it just shows that you support LGBTs!

    Shouldn't it be a day of speaking out? Keeping silent seems to be the problem.

    The silence is to represent the LGBT who have committed suicide because of name-calling, bullying and harassment in school.

    Like I said, keeping silent was the problem.

    Good luck with it though, I don't think many will notice or care sadly.

    I guess I might. I've been bullied many times for being a Transformer fan and my passion for dinosaurs, and I've delt with the problem in every way. Some worked out good, some didn't, some felt good to do but I too had to suffer the consequences in the end.
    Man, sometimes kids need to be knocked down a notch or two on the school foodchain. I see nothing wrong with a kid who decided to stick up for himself and cleaned the bully's clock.

    I'm not sure what a "vow of silence" will do exactly, but I support it to end school bullying and harrassment. Mainly because I'm sick of all the bullshit drama in the hallways because some fucking idiot girl decided to take naked pictures of herself and send them "accidentally" to her ex-boyfriend who posted it all over facebook.

    I'll just say this much. I do not support the bullying part of it in any way.

    I applaud your efforts, but I'd rather speak out against this sort of bullying and harassment than keep silent.

    I shit you not my friend.

    I don't know what it is with freshmen, but this week in April, every single year, there's a shitload of fights. Seriously, last year there were so many fights that week all the students had to sit in the auditorium for an hour and have our asshole vice-principal screamed at the top of his bloody lungs until his entire head turned purple and resembled a giant pulsating tumor with a mouth.
