Kids’ Game “Duck, Duck, Goose” Deemed Offensive by Bird Rights Activists
The Coalition for Feathered Equality (CFE) released a memo Sunday afternoon calling out the popular children’s game Duck, Duck, Goose as “a derogatory pastime that conveys offensive stereotypes about geese.”
The game, according to the CFE, portrays ducks as calm, patient creatures, and geese as wild, noisy animals bent on revenge. “We need a cultural shift in perception about the goose community, and this game is a barrier to progress with young people,” the memo explains.
