Poll #1633466 Purple Day

Today is purple day. GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, requests that people wear purple October 20 to raise awareness of the dangers of anti-gay bullying. Will you/did you wear purple today?

Yes, for this reason
Yes, but not for this reason
I hadn't planned on it, but I will now that I'm aware of this
No, but I support this idea.
No and I do not support this idea
Something else (what?)

No offence, but the argument about not wanting to single out a specific group is lost on me. It's like saying that you won't wear a pink ribbon in honour of breast cancer survivors because there are other kinds of cancer too. Honouring one worthy cause doesn't imply dishonour for other worthy causes or make them less worthy. If attention can be drawn to one aspect of teen suicide, it's beneficial, especially if the root cause can be identified and addressed.
