ZRC at the Airport

So the chairwoman of the ZRC had to catch a flight today for her day-job, and was sporting her personal copy of the prototype ZRC shirt (which you get a sneak preview of here), which led to an eye-opening discussion about the cause of Zombie Rights when she checked in at the ticket kiosk.  Apparently the kindly woman behind the counter had not only never heard of the cause of Zombie Rights, she had no idea what a zombie was, and hadn’t even seen any of the often hateful and almost universally inaccurate Hollywood movies portraying the undead.

It just goes to show how pervasive ignorance about the undead is in our modern society, and serves as a useful reminder that it is that same ignorance that is our worst enemy in the quest for Undead Equality.

I think we should look at this as the proverbial glass-half-full situation, however.  Yes, this woman had never heard of the undead or their struggle, but she had also never been indoctrinated by the likes of George Romero and Tom Savini.  She was a blank slate on the entire issue before this afternoon, and now, thanks to a simple t-shirt, has been made aware of a larger and more diverse world.

I think we can all be proud of that.
