Purple...not just for old ladies today?

Apparently it's Spirit Day. One wears purple in solidarity with LGBT youth and to speak out against bullying (per the website). I don't even own anything purple I can wear. My old Gotham City Cafe t-shirt is purple. It's also a size large; it didn't really fit me when I acquired it 15 years ago and 75 pounds ago.

I'm wearing blue jeans. Does that count for anything? I always thought that particular event was kind of dumb. Everyone wears blue jeans, gay or straight, and it's nothing special. I think we can find homophobes wearing jeans, even on that particular day, and you're not going to convince them that they're suddenly friends of gayfolk.

(The subject line refers to the opening lines of "Warning" by Jenny Joseph, famous now in connection with the Red Hat society and for being a sensational senior citizen.)

I don't know if they were promoting the purple thing internationally; probably not. It's not much of a statement if it's not widely known. I mean, I didn't even know of such a thing until I was well past the point of being dressed.
