6-Year-Old Girl (Board) Gamer Calls Out Hasbro For Gender Inequality

I never played Guess Who? all that much as a child, which might explain why I never realized how imbalanced it is in terms of gender. Or maybe I just wasn’t as perceptive as this six-year-old girl, who not only noticed that there are only five girls compared to 19 boys, but also took the time to write to Hasbro about it. Reads her letter:

She will kiss my husband on the mouth in front of me.
