Video: “Day Without a Gay” not going according to plan

posted at 12:38 pm on December 9, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via Breitbart, turns out the recession’s a Prop 8 supporter. The festivities begin tomorrow; the boss is already bracing for the biggest labor shockwave since, um, “Day Without an Illegal Immigrant.” Remember that? No?

First the Larry Craig appeal gets rejected, now this. Heart-ache. Exit question: Isn’t today “Day Without a Blogger Who Has Nothing to Post Day”? I’m pretty sure.

I guess the KY aisle at the local CVS will be busy tonight.

This had better not effect my hair appointment tomorrow.

KelliD on December 9, 2008 at 12:43 PM

oh my gosh, really? a day without gay? For realz? Can we please have it, PLEASE???!?!?!?!?! This is the best idea EVER. I’m all for it.

Mommypundit on December 9, 2008 at 12:43 PM

No gays? Oh no! Aren’t they like 10% of the general population?

Boy-cot.

Heh.

I’m looking forward to “Day with a Loser.”

Oh wait, is that redundant?

kybowexar on December 9, 2008 at 12:44 PM

A special day just to find out the significance of their insignificance.

Done That on December 9, 2008 at 12:44 PM

I betting the theme song is a mashup of “A year without a Santa Clause.”

TexasDan on December 9, 2008 at 12:44 PM

Yeah, I heard about this. It’s been kind of neutralized here in Madison due to the snowstorm.

Seriously, though…this is exactly the kind of in-your-face attention-whoring that will just stir up bad feelings towards the homosexual community. A movement towards threatening the business community is not a way to further sentiments of equality.

Hey, that gay man said “Christmas”! Get his name, boycott him!

I think we should have a Day Without a White Male Day and see what happens.

Hmmm I think many will possibly lose those jobs and then they can sue. Can the Employeer counter sue? I think so!

As I said in the other thread. “Day without a Gay” will go down in the anals of history..

GoodBoy on December 9, 2008 at 12:46 PM

I wouldn’t fire them when they called in “gay.” I would fire them on their arrival for work the next day for missing work without an excuse. Have fun, people.

It’s gonna be pretty funny when cash strapped businesses use this as an excuse to cut their budget

Fishoutofwater on December 9, 2008 at 12:47 PM

Hopefully all the Hollywood gays that put out all the smut on TV and movies will take more than a day off. We could use a break from the pro-gay junk they put out.

They will not shove this down our throat…what do you bet a lot of workers will sneak in the back door?

right2bright on December 9, 2008 at 12:48 PM

The idea that these activist loud mouths might be away from businesses for a day/week/month, etc. is highly appealing. Then again, that would make them ultra idle…eh…perhaps we need to keep these people as busy as possible.

TexasDan on December 9, 2008 at 12:44 PM

There was this “Twisted Christmas” song where a little girl sings about Santa being stuck up in the chimney all year long.
“…I’m waiting up for Santa, like I did last year,
but my brother says he’s already here.”

Instead of investing billions in research had we let AIDS take it’s course we could have had “A lifetime without a gay”. No good deed goes unpunished.

Day without a gay?

Does that mean they’re leaving the country?

Good riddance.

If all the homosexuals left the country, we would singlehandedly be rid of 99% of all atheists in this country.

A double blessing for America.

I was just being a wise guy, but it is the wrong time of year for that (HT – another thread on HA)

I personally think the rate is not as high as they think it is – it is just they are very vocal and verbal about it – it just seems like there are more because of self-promotion. All kidding aside, seems like a rather sad way to be and live.

“Day without a gay” huh. Let’s just say that I am thankful that it wasn’t “take your gay to work day”.

My collie says:

Does this mean that there is a moratorium today on nomenclature/terminology that gays find offensive?

This reminds me of the Family Guy bit, “How to tell if you’ve got a gay.”

This is the dumbest stunt yet and while I support gay marriage, I believe the organizers of this movement (in CA at least) have lost their gay minds.

First, they hopped in bed with Soros, which showed alterior motivations beyond wanting gays to be allowed to marry. Next, they went after the Mormons while totally ignoring the black religious leaders who were against them by something north of 85%. Now, they have taken to dumbass stunts like this one.
