9. He's back

Said there was only one other customer at Schwab, a man, who said "That's a great hat--I was at the march." My husband asked him if he had a hat, and he said yes. I'm hoping that that guy will be inspired to wear his hat, too.

The woman employee my husband dealt with said "I love your hat," which might be an expression of support or might be an expression of personal discomfort caused by seeing an old man in what might be a child's hat.

I can't figure out imgur.com anymore, since they changed it.

I have some great photos from the LA March earlier this month. The signs alone made it worthwhile, but being part of that staggeringly large crowd was even better. (Biggest in the country/world! 750-thousand people, and ZERO arrests!)

Set up photo sharing account like Photobucket.

Upload photos to there as PDF or other acceptable format.

Go to library there and select photo.

Copy photo's image address and paste it in this field.

And I'm not clever about these things at all! All you need to do is sign up for a free account on Photobucket. Then you can post any pic you have on your computer. Just upload your pic to Photobucket and post the Direct link. I always preview my post to make sure it turned out alright. Also, you now can edit any post you make here indefinitely if you need to make a change. Good luck! I'm looking forward to seeing it, too!

43. Like the Trumpistas' red MAGA hats, these pink hats are signs of solidarity & support. One

thing that keeps those who would resist and oppose tyranny from speaking out and stepping up is the fear that they are vastly outnumbered and that they would be left hanging there, alone, despised, vulnerable, and unsupported. The ubiquity of pink hats reassures the timid that they are not alone, that their opinions are not fringe. It also reinforces the energy and commitment of the group, because we are social creatures, and most people need to feel they are part of a larger group.

That is why sports fans wear team colors. Politics in this country are more like sports than like anything else. Tribalism rules, and people want "their team" to win, regardless of whether their team is worthy of success.

Wearing the "team colors" is an important factor in expanding the team's popularity and energizing its supporters.

Go for it, my friend. The advantage of the hats as symbols is that they are already established as markers of women's rights. And nobody afaik has asked you to wear one.

It's sort of like abortion. If you don't want to have one, don't.

If I can screw up my courage I'm going to call my local NPR talk show and suggest to a wider audience that we all wear our pussyhats at all times and in all places.

BTW the old man wore his to the gym this morning--no responses at all. It was 5:30, so maybe nobody actually saw the hat.
