So on our way to birthday shop at Anthropologie for B on Sunday we ran into friends who told us that the man who owns Anthro and also Urban Outfitters (these (and Forever 21) are the two are the MAIN sources of both our kids fave clothes) does not support same sex marriage. We didn't know. Who would have thought, these are young peoples unconservative clothes and mostly staffed by clearly unconservative young peeps. We were a block away and we didn't have time to rethink this mission. So we bought three beautiful things. Which B did love when she opened them Tuesday. And we decided not to tell B the politics for a month so she can enjoy her clothes... before she has to find somewhere else to like the clothes from.

Remember when it was not shopping in stores that supported apartheid?

I'm never sure if it works...boycotting. I mean, of course it does in extreme cases.

You might suggested to her to look at the brand of the clothes, and try to buy the same things from someone else.

There was a political cartoon (not our artists) we ran in the paper where the guy said something like "just wait until all the old people die then you can have your gay marriage" and tho I"m sure there's a ring of truth to that, it's a horribly nearsighted and blanket statement. I know many older people who support it (My Mom!! wooot!) and plenty of young ones who do not.

Why can't we all just get along? :)
