I learned what a squat-house was today. Evidently, it's any abandoned building and it can be occupied b homeless people as long as they do not steal or vandalize, and they leave peacefully if an offer asks them to leave. I learned this from a guy who looked about 16-years-old at the Gay Pride Parade. He asked me if I was gay, too, I think because I was alone and don't necessarily read one way or the other (because I'm not). But really?! Where the fuck have I been that I've never heard of this elusive squat-house? I asked if this was an Oregon-specific law-- as of yet, no information. I guess I have a back-up plan, though.
