People need to move on, and drawing attention to the fact that it is still there is not going to make it better. DO something for once instead of watching others do it as you give yourself false comfort with your silence.
This is just a cheap way to say "I support those LGBT people" without actually stepping up to help them. All it does is clean your bloody conscience.
Did you read the site?
There's a reason for why it's a day of silence.
Drawing attention to the problem, acknowledging it, is something you have to do if they are ever to hope to change the problem at all.
This is "action", it might not be the action "you" personally think people should take (feel free to go shoo people towards that yourself if you want it to happen), but it's bloody well better than nothing.
And you should take 2 seconds to wonder if anyone posting about it is a member of the LGBT community, *waves*, before posting insinuative insults.
