Next Wednesday is Wear Purple Day [just one of many facebook events], to honor the students who have recently committed suicide after being bullied about being gay. (see here) It's extremely sad that this has been happening and is continuing to happen, and it's clear that something needs to be done to change people's attitudes towards homosexuality. I don't understand why this is still an issue. GLBTQ people are people - why haven't people learned from the women's rights movement, civil rights movement, the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION that denying people rights is just WRONG?! We need acceptance, equality, respect - these are all things we supposedly value. But clearly we're failing.
On a lighter note, between today and Wednesday, there are six days. Inspired by none other than Susie Bubble herself, I've decided to dress up as the rainbow from now until Wednesday! So today is
RED(and pink!) DAY!
