Dust Bunnies

"Dust bunnies (or dustbunnies), also called dust mice, are small clumps of dust that form under furniture and in corners that are not cleaned regularly. They are made of hair, lint, dead skin, spider web, dust, and sometimes light rubbish and debris, and are held together by static electricity and felt-like entanglement."

Now must people don't normally think about dust bunnies on a regular basis.  I however, would like to open your eyes to the large controversy surrounding them.

Many people only think of dust bunnies as ugly nuisances that have to be removed.  But have you ever thought about their feelings? Do you think they like hiding under beds and sofas? No.  They hide there because society finds their lifestyle unacceptable.  They are looked down as "less" than everyone else.  Since the mid 80's, the American Dust Bunny Society of America has been pushing for their classification as "Dust Americans", and has begun lobbying for an equal-rights amendment so they can finally come out from under the bed and exercise their rights as Americans.
