Or several thoughts, maybe. :D It's December, and a lot of folks are gift buying for various holidays - friends, family, frenemies, and so on.
The corporate world is, in general, pretty awful these days and it's tough sometimes to give your money to awful people. This year, consider buying from smaller businesses, from family and single-owner ones.
Like to order chocolates? Consider shopping at your local chocolatier or ordering from smaller, family owned businesses like Gertrude Hawk or Nuts.com.
Looking for queer-friendly things like stickers, notebooks, and plushies? Order from queer creators like Rainbow Glade or Queer As They.
Want some art? Find queer artists to buy from like Felix D'eon or Ludo (for a more goth aesthetic).
However you do it, use your buying power this year to support the non-corporate everything!
