I'm quite a tautological writer... :iconthe-timerunner: will know what i mean =P

Day of Silence is tomorrow (11 April) and this'll be my first time participating in this event. I've gathered a few (like 7) people in my grade to join along. 

Seeing as most people are not aware of the event at my school, i decided to make some graphics that will explain why we are being silent. We specifically chose to focus on survivors of corrective rape for our DoS. This (unfortunately) uniquely South African hate crime is when a masculine of centre person (most commonly lesbians and trans*masculines) are violently sexually assaulted by homophobic attackers with the objective of "rectifying" their identity by showing how "good" it is to be with a man. Yeah, I know: stupid. Homophobia has grown deep roots in a country with the most progressive constitution; my heart aches.

The only exception that i make for talking is when i need clarity in class, but that wont be a problem because I have a three hour math exam... It's okay: this, too, shall pass

The graphic is available on dA: Day of Silence graphics by thenameisCarbon and possibly tumblr. Please feel free to distribute it: the work may be modified but may not be used commercially.
