Miss Ginger Demonstrates!

Usually when Miss Ginger demonstrates, it's "how to make gumbo" or "how to sew a housecoat", but today Miss Ginger actually participated in a political demonstration at Houston's FABULOUS art deco city hall.


Let me back up- Miss Ginger got all wrapped up in what to wear. An all black, professional suit? We want to look respectable. Something bright? We want to attract attention and get noticed? Pastel? It's after Labor Day! She worked herself into such a frenzy that she decided to send Boy Ginger as her stand in. Boy was thrilled to go, because he had promised the dear, sweet David Dust that he would cover Houston as the Dust Bunny correspondant for the national Join the Impact campaign.




Neither Boy or Ginger are much on demonstration and protest, and their support of causes tends to be more humanitarian than political. But, on a very basic level, there is no more humanitarian need than human rights, and the right to marry whomever one chooses should not be denied to anyone.

And, when you think about stupid prop 8, where along the way did society start "defensive legislation", anyway? I mean, prop 8 is proposing to "ban" something that isn't even legal! How stupid is that?

Anyway, Boy Ginger met fellow Dust Bunnies Str8upwithatwist, Margo, and AlanHou, and we snapped this photo for dear David and the other bunnies:




At first Miss Ginger thought there were about 1,000 people there, and she saw SpecialEd (from our Special Events team at work) and NeighborJane from down the street, plus lots of other peeps.




By the time she worked her way out of the midst to take this crowd shot, she revised her estimate to more like 2,000.







And here's a little movie clip of the crowd chanting:

So that's it from Houston! I'm looking forward to seeing coverage from Dust Bunnies all around the country on David's blog!

We have had many rallies here in San Francisco. I have been pretty disgusted with Calif. I am just hopeful that there will be an upside.
