Well, I had no intentions of being silent today for day of silence, to me, the whole Idea only serves to further make the heterosexual majority make victims out of us. By us being "silent" it says "look at me, i'm, a helpless fruit, look at me, I am so repressed" or "no one likes me because I am gay" some people just don't like you.
My day of silence was caused buy a sore throat and stuffed up silence. I called in sick to work, as my job requires me to talk to americans for eight hours a day. I stayed home, reformated my computer... (lost eveyrthing includeing IM list) I never said a word to anyone. Because I was sick, and my throat hurt to talk. That my day of silence.
also, some people are better off silent.
