Day Without A Gay

by thoughtfulconservative

I like this.

I want to declare a Day Without A Middle-aged White Guy.

I know, not the same ring.

How about Day Without Christians.

I could use the day off, too.

  1. I’m not middle-aged (yet) but I’d be in on either one of these. Of course, we would be seen as hateful and bigoted if we tried this.

  2. “we would be seen as hateful and bigoted if we tried this.”

    no you wouldn’t.

  3. Yeah, this seems to miss the point. In the “day without a Mexican” type events, the point is that Mexicans are an important part of the workforce and to kick them out of the country would screw up a lot of businesses and lives and the economy etc. With gay people, nobody would suggest that they aren’t an important part of the economy and as far as I know, nobody that’s sane is trying to kick them out of the country.

    Although a “day without a Christian” would be even farther off the mark because “Christian” isn’t something people are (like Mexican or gay) it’s something they think. That’d be like having “a day without an astrologist” or “a day without a person that prefers Sean Connery as James Bond to Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.” Also, in this country, nobody is oppressing or discriminating against Christians like they are gays or Mexicans.

    THIS is the only true point of the thing. Nobody’s seriously going to argue that “middle aged white guys” or Christians just can’t get a fair shake, or that they don’t have all the civil rights owed to them. Oppressed people do these kinds of demonstrations to point out that these things are NOT always true for them, and to declare that they are deserving of all the opportunities and rights that everyone else has.

    “Middle-aged white guy” day would not only be unnecessary, but offensive in its trivialization of the issues these minorities face.

  5. “THIS is the only true point of the thing.”

    The only one? What is untrue about the rest of what I said?

  6. I’m not saying we deserve one. I just want to get in on the action. I want people to love me for my pretty face and kind heart. ;)

  7. Gay rights are not the same as immigrant rights, but you have it right when you say that both groups are valuable to the workforce. This country does not grant the same rights to same sex couples and that is what this is all about. We are here and in large numbers.
