"Day Without a Homo" This Wednesday

The Bench front page... Homosexuals are being urged to call in "gay" to their places of employment on Wednesday, December 10 for what is being called "Day Without A Gay." Does this mean that "gay" is no longer slang for "homosexual" and is now a synonym for "sick?" From the web site's second page: Are you implying that "gay" is equivolent to "sick?" Whoa! NO! It's just that "gay" rhymes with "day" so it was a cute and clever way to get you involved. HAHA! Now you're hooked! You're beautiful, very not sick, and super wonderful. Help us spread service however you feel comfortable, SWEET THING! Huh? It's only called "Day Without a Gay" because of convenient rhyming? Why bring sexual orientation into this at all, then, if "It's just that "gay" rhymes with "day" so it was a cute and clever way to get you involved?" Why not call it "Day For Public Service," or "Day To Get Involved?" This is marketing at it's dumbest. IT'S ALSO A LIE. That lie was probably added as an afterthought, because at the top of the first page of their website it says this (emphasis added): We've reacted to anti-gay ballot initiatives in California, Arizona Florida, and Arkansas with anger, with resolve, and with courage. NOW, it's time to show America and the world how we love. Gay people and our allies are compassionate, sensitive, caring, mobilized, and programmed for success. A day without gays would be tragic because it would be a day without love. On December 10, 2008 the gay community will take a historic stance against hatred by donating love to a variety of different causes. So, "It's just that 'gay' rhymes with 'day,' they say on page two. I'm not sure how they square that with page one. This is clearly a homosexual response to California's Proposition 8 and similar legislation in other states. Furthermore, to say that "a day without gays would be tragic because it would be a day without love" is akin to implying that non-gays are loveless, cold hearted and without compassion. Gad, what a load of hypocrital crap. Writer Tom Head (an unfortunate name in this context) writes about "Day Without A Gay." Wednesday is JointheImpact's Day Without a Gay, inspired by 2006's Day Without Immigrants. LGBTs and allies are asked by to take a day off work if possible, to volunteer if possible, and to spend nothing (including not contributing ad revenue by using the TV, radio, or Internet) if possible. The web site of says this: On December 10, you are encouraged not to call in sick to work. You are encouraged to call in "gay"--and donate your time to service! What, homosexuals don't have enough time in the evenings or on weekends to donate service? Additionally, has advice for homosexuals who fear losing their jobs: BUT I CAN'T CALL IN AT WORK ON 12/10 OR I'LL GET FIRED! If you live in one of the 30 states where individuals can still be fired simply for being gay or lesbian, there are still plenty of ways that you can lend a hand and a voice in our fight for gay equality--without missing work. CLICK HERE for actions you can take RIGHT NOW! Ah, the mind of the Leftists (which these people are). People - gay or straight - get fired routinely for abusing sick days at work. To assume that an employer would fire a homosexual who calls in "gay" on December 10 would be fired simply for being gay or lesbian would be, well, not correct. They would be fired for not having a valid excuse for going in to work. I mean, what if you called your employer and told them you weren't coming in to work on a Wednesday because you're not sick but feeling charitable and want to go pick up litter at the beach. Would you be reprimanded, maybe fired? Would sexual preference have anything to do with it? No, it wouldn't, but in the mind of the Leftist, everyone's a victim. So when thousands of homosexuals call in "gay" on Wednesday, some will be disciplined by their employers. They will cry discrimination and "h8." Ridiculous. Tom Head gets tough on the gay rights movement; he has some harsh words although he sympathetic. His harsh words are for the tactics, not the gays themselves: But if you're participating in the Day Without a Gay because you think you need to risk your job and take a fast day to prove you're worthy of equal rights, that isn't really necessary. You were worthy of equal rights the day you were born. Go out and be part of the movement, but don't hang your head--be proud of who you are. Because if there's one lesson that the history of human rights has taught us, it's that nobody has ever achieved equal rights by begging for them. More Head... How about this as an alternative? The Bench hereby declares Wednesday, January 14, 2009 as the "Day Without A Straight." The 85-90 percent of American workers who are heterosexual can call in and tell their bosses that they won't be at work because they need to do some volunteer work for the Boy Scouts of America, or the Salvation Army, or the local Lions Club. That way, in most work places, when only one in ten of the employees show up that day, we'll send the message that a day without straights is a day without the vast majority of your work force. What's next? The possibilities are endless. "Day Without An Attorney" sounds good. How about "Day Without A Leper," "Day Without A Dwarf," "Day Without An Old Feeble Person," "Day Without...." Well, you get the idea. RELATED: Gay boycott idealistic, unrealistic Homosexuals For Hamas Gay rights protesters disrupt Sunday service The Bench: JOE MOORE WANTS YOU TO BE "GAY FOR A DAY"
