the graphics seem fine, but the typography is quite bad.
for the first one, im not sure why the background of 'dumbf*ck' is not the same as the one for the graphic. make it the same, it really throws it off.
for the second one, the angle of rotation of the word "homophobia" and the tape is different, which really irks me. the font choice and lettering size and spacing is not too good either. maybe make it more bold, and close the line space.
last one, arial, yuck. the obvious spelling error of "its", it should've been "it's". the line spacing is also a bit too big. i think you were going for the modernism style, but it ended up looking empty and unoriginal.

For "day of silence": what font should I use, I'm really new at this

^holy shit whatever were you thinking? you just made the poster infinitely worse. you still haven't fixed the angle of rotation, and now you've used two grunge fonts when you've got a clean graphic. those two fonts should never appear in the same place together. try animal or bandana or gasmask. if youre gonna do that grunge look, add some grungy textures. but either way dont use those two fonts, you just lowered its legibility.

my 3rd attempt; this time using animal (bandana wouldn't cooperate with the date)
EDIT: angle of rotation should
