I have issues with the shirt. I appreciate it, but I feel as if Bucknell uses it as more a mark of “proving” that they’re okay with LGBT things. I feel like it’s a social thing, not a support thing. It’s just another thing that we do because everyone else does it, regardless of how we actually feel. “Acceptance, not tolerance”?
It’s how I feel about the Day of Silence, too. Isn’t it enough that we’re silenced every single day already? Shouldn’t the Day of Silence be about making non-LGBT&c. shut the fuck up for a day and actually hear the voices of LGBT&c people?
