My daughter Ava is nearly 5 years old. At this point, we’ve had plenty of encounters with ignorance and thoughtlessness. And, at this point, it takes a lot to phase me. I have seen and heard it all.

So it surprised me that it has taken this long for someone to make an inappropriate comment regarding my daughter. It all started with a cat.
