So I find what is happening a little confusing. Someone said something that caused some people to want to eat more chicken and other people want to eat less chicken. What gives, right? If you like it, eat it! If you don't like it then give me yours!
Of course, I asked mom to explain.
Me: "Mom, what gives with the chicken?"
Mom: "Some people are mad and some people are happy about what a guy said so they are either supporting his business or not to show how they feel."
Me: "That's stupid. I don't care what you say as long as you're giving me chicken."
Mom: "What if I gave Gabriel chicken because he is a cat but I told you that you can never have chicken because you are a dog."
Me: "That is even more stupid. But Gabriel would share with me."
Mom: "What if I tried to pass a law that let Gabriel and all cats eat all the chicken that they wanted but it was illegal for dogs to have the same thing?"
Me: "OMG, you wouldn't do that, would you???"
Me: "Good, because that's just wrong! Why would you even say such a thing??? Or even think it??? Wow... I mean, just wow."
Mom: "So the chicken guy is kind of doing the same thing."
Mom: "And I've been looking at the articles because I find the public reaction interesting. It seems so similar to the reactions during the desegregation era."
Me: "De whatsit now?"
Mom: "Desegregation. Segregation is like if I didn't let you and Gabriel play together because he is black and you are white."
Me: "WHAT?!?!?! That's so dumb!!! That's as dumb as the chicken thing! You humans make weird rules. Maybe humans are dumb."
Mom: "I agree. Now, shall I make you some chicken? You and Gabriel can share it before your nap."
Me: "Okay, I take it back. Not all humans are dumb. Can the chicken have butter?"
I learned something from that conversation and I sure am glad that I live in a world where me, Gabriel and even Bowser the hedgehog can enjoy the same meal together without anyone denying us the right!
