Civil rights starts early.

Little Fayoumis has been learning about Dr. King in class, because of the upcoming holiday, and he was talking about following the rules, but the good rules, and getting rid of the bad rules.

I asked him if he knew of any rules that were bad rules; if he could change any rules, which ones would they be?

He started talking about the "White Only" and "Black Only" signs, and how those were bad rules. We established that those were pretty much in the past, and yes, those had been very bad rules.

I introduced a new bad rule to him: what happens if a girl wants to get married to another girl, or a guy wants to get married to another guy? Right now, only a guy and a girl are allowed to get married to each other, not two girls or two guys. [Co-worker of Mommy's] and [her SO], like them. They could say that they were married, but the rules say they can't be married! Those are bad rules.

Yes, the Little Fayoumis agreed. Those are indeed bad rules, and they should be changed.

Civil rights.
