Time to WALKOUT on the Pro-Homosexual "Day of Silence"

Should boys be allowed access to girls’ restrooms, locker rooms, and showers?

This is what we were all supposed to accept in America in 2017. Like many of you, we are not buying it.

Thanks to last year's illegitimate Obama Administration edict, many public schools have already started allowing gender-dysphoric students to access opposite-sex private spaces, often without informing parents.

“Day of Silence 2017” is likely to ratchet up the rhetoric on the bathroom issue. Our children will not benefit from this misuse of instructional time and educational resources.

Will you join with us again this year to oppose the Day of Silence organized and promoted by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)? This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, April 21, 2017.

Let’s once again stand together against normalizing sexual deviance. Why?

It’s not just this one day each spring, although that would be bad enough.

Here are just some of the trends in public elementary, middle, and high schools regarding the controversial topics of homosexuality and gender confusion, and which make the Day of Silence Walkout necessary:

  • Increasing numbers of schools followed the Obama Administration illegitimate guidance from May 2016 and allowed gender-confused students to share restrooms with students of the opposite sex, including even elementary schools. 
  • Teachers—who are, of course, government employees—are being forced by the government to lie by being compelled to refer to gender-confused students by pronouns that designate the opposite sex. 
  • Girls students are being permitted to run for prom king, and boy students are being permitted to be prom queens.
  • Elementary schools are marching in “gay” pride parades.
  • California schools are legally required to teach positively about homosexuality and gender confusion in all social studies classes in grades 6-12, and all resources that espouse dissenting views are censored. 
  • Schools—including elementary schools—promote leftist views of homosexuality and gender confusion in sex ed curricula and in presentations about “family diversity.”   
  • Elementary schools make picture books that depict homosexuality positively available to children in their libraries.
  • Schools host dances for homosexual students.
  • Teachers actively promote the legal recognition of same-sex pseudo-marriage.
  • School theater departments mount productions of The Laramie Project, Zanna, Don’t!, and Rent. and English teachers teach Angels in AmericaThe Laramie Project, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower,
  • Film teachers show Brokeback Mountain.
  • Schools promote the normalization of homosexuality and gender confusion through Spirit Day, Ally Week, National Coming Out Day, “LGBT” History Month, and the queen of all homosexuality-affirming days: the Day of Silence.

It’s an overwhelming trajectory, but there is one organized annual event—and only one—during which conservatives have an opportunity to express their opposition to the hijacking of government schools for the pernicious purposes of homosexual activism: the Day of Silence Walkout. Learn more at the Day of Silence WALKOUT website, here.

Every year a new crop of students enters middle and high schools whose parents naively believe that public schools value diversity, honor all voices, foster critical thinking, and are committed to creating a “safe” place for all views to be expressed. Those parents and many others whose children are returning students have no idea the extent of the pro-homosexuality propaganda that pervades our schools. And many have never heard of the "Day of Silence."

The Day of Silence Walkout alerts parents to the exploitation of their public schools in the service of transforming the moral and political beliefs of their children. The "Day of Silence" is not centrally a day committed to the eradication of bullying—a goal all decent people support. Rather, the "Day of Silence" organizers, promoters, and participants seek to exploit legitimate anti-bullying sentiment to normalize homosexuality and the “trans” cult. Despite what GLSEN says, it is possible to oppose bullying and oppose the "Day of Silence."

The Day of Silence Walkout offers an easy, safe way for parents to express to school administrations and faculty their—the parents—opposition to the promotion of non-factual Leftist beliefs about disordered sexuality.

Every student absence costs schools money, and often that matters much more to school administrations and school boards than the beliefs and feelings of parents.

We want to thank you in advance for your participation in this important effort to express opposition to the use of government resources to indoctrinate our children. Learn more at the Day of Silence WALKOUT website, here.
