Join the revolution & take back our holidays!
Change Black Friday into Buy Nothing Day, and don't take your credit cards to work on Cyber Monday.
Shift Your Shopping from mass marketers & big box stores to your local independent retailers & small artisans.
Practice a Buy Nothing Christmas. Instead of buying more things, give gifts of your time, your energy, and maybe even some unwanted things around your home; organize a used items gift swap among your family and/or friends.
I am not sure legalizing same sex marriage would solve this problem completely. The mom that did not carry the baby legally adopted the baby and they are still seeking the donor.
