Day of Silence
« Reply #90 on: December 03, 2007, 08:23:00 am »
sorry for being off topic, I just wanted to point out that hating of a specific group of people as a whole was bad. But i guess thats to be expected since the holidays relates to homosexuality. If you posted a topic about the anniversary of sept 11st  2001 terrorist attacks it would be certain that ppl would start talking about how terrorism is bad and others that USA  asked for a terrorist attacks.

That said I was wondering if the Day Of Silence always occurs at the same date every year? Because I never heard of it before I saw this topic and over here it got announced in newspaper almost one month after it occured. Is it just an american holiday?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

... and just had to rain on Netham's parade with pages of off-topic discussion about what's natural and what's not. That wasn't the point of this thread. All Nathem wanted to do was remind people about a holiday, in case any of our members were interested in checking it out.


I take it no one really caught the point I was trying to make.

I just don't understand why the most trivial mention of homosexuality has to result in a full social dissection of gay issues like adoption, marriage, and so forth. Although, I guess those subjects actually do relate to the Day of Silence, so this is somewhat of a moot point to be illustrating at the wrong time. Either way, it's just my frustration speaking.

because there is no universal answer for the question, is homosexuality okay. when someone posts something about how on a certain day, a group of people are getting together to celebrate a certain viewpoint, inevitably people are going to post saying that they support the opposite. whch then leads to defence of the original view, and so on.
