Put a sock on it…

From Carolyn Hax’s column, we have this gem….

Hi, Carolyn:

Every year a female friend has a Christmas get-together. On the invitation she requests that, if we are so moved,

we bring a baby item to donate to a charity she supports that is an anti-abortion group.

A number of us have a different viewpoint and do not wish to support her charity. Is declining the invitation the only way to handle this? Or should we just tell her how we feel? Or risk being embarrassed by showing up with no item to donate? I know it says “if you are so moved” but I still feel pressured. In past years, I grudgingly donated, and didn’t like it.

— T.

My Answer: Donate a box of condoms every year.  Case closed.
