Oh,no! Another community message from the "everybody must" contingent. If you don't go along with the direction, then you must hate children and little furry animals, believe the elderly should be euthenased and you're an environmental vandal, too.
Who is the authority that determines "unnecessary?"
Is smoking "necessary?" Drinking alcohol? Lottery tickets? If you don't buy a new car every now and then, you're putting people out-of-work, and older cars make more pollution, so you're poisoning the earth and the kids and the little furry animals and the birds. If you don't buy imported bananas, all the people in third-world counties will starve. If you do, the local industry will be devastated by imported diseases.
(Repeat the last argument for pork, apples, pears, tomatoes... anything else you may eat)
Is make-up a "toiletry item" or an "unnecessary item?" What about people with disfigurements? What about hair-dye to reduce discrimination against rangas?
The whole "day of," "week of," "month of," "year of" or "...awareness" is twenty years beyond its use-by date and should be consigned to the bin that has all the things in it that end in "-thon".
I don't have any choice anyway. On a zero income, I can't make discretionary purchases. I have to go along with it - but unwillingly, I can assure you. Reply
