Anti-Gay Protest on Day of Silence

Anti-Gay Shirt Day
A few months ago in the U.S., three students wearing anti-gay T-shirts to class disrupted Oregon City High School's celebration of 'National Day of Silence.' What they did not expect is that the simple expression would lead to an overwhelming support from some 2,000 students of that school.

The so-called 'National Day of Silence' is an event where lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender (LGBT) students take some form of silence to attract attention to their alleged and unfounded claims of harassment.

One of the students who protested to the holding of the event told KATU News that if the school is supporting ‘Day of Silence,’ then they have the right to speak out against it as well. And one way to speak against it i by wearing T-shirts to school that said, "Gay Is Not Ok" and "Gay Day Is Not OK."

"I'm not comfortable with you guys making a whole day about what you believe," said Alex Borho, a senior. "So if you're going to make a whole day out of it and not talk and a have a 'moment of silence,' then I can wear my T-shirt."

It is expected that from the three students who started it, the number will gradually increase every month as more than 1,000 students at Oregon City High have already expressed disgust at the way LGBT’s try to impose their self-serving standards on their personal choices and principles.

A student wearing one of the shirts said his teachers didn't seem to care about it and that the school administrator is allowing the shirts on campus.
