Dear Milton Bradly,
I think your new version of Life® game is unfair.
On the board there is not one black person and you must get married to someone of the opposite sex and you can’t be gay or lesbin. ALso the girls are pink which is stereotypical for “the weaker sex” and the boy pegs are blue which is stereotypical for strengh there are many strong girls and weak boys. Also your game teaches little kids that if you have tons of money you are automaticly happy that is a lie. And you must buy a house which many people can’t afford, and you have a huge paying job. In other words your game is not really life.

I’m about 200% sure this kids’ two mothers put him up to this.

Either way, you gotta admit little man has a point. If little Nick wants to grow up as a pink-wearing weak black man with a husband, no house, and no money, then let little Nick grow up as a pink-wearing weak black man with a husband, no house, and no money. He shouldn’t be penalized because of Milton Bradly‘s preconceived ideas of what “life” is about. Shit’s all a lie.

And if the game is really supposed to be “Life”, where are the phone calls from Sallie Mae’s bill collecting agencies? Where are the pregnancy scares, unwanted children, and child support payments?  Where is the shift from hope and youthful blind optimism to unrealized potential and numbing complacency?  Little Nick Packard couldn’t be more right.  This shit ain’t life.
