I slept on a cot one time. Then I didn’t know it was called a boycott. It was quite comfortable and it was easy to set up and take down. I had a pillow for my head and some blankets to keep me warm. There are a lot of people now that get angry about something and they boycott whatever they are angry about. I don’t know if it really does very much good.
I am a guy, though, and there is something I just might want to boycott about sometime. That would be about the discrimination that is shown even in the word “boycott”. I have a little sister and the next night she got to sleep on the boy cot. I didn’t think that was very right then. It was a boy cot and not a girl cot. Now I don’t know who I could protest too that would show them I was setting up a boycott about this problem. If boys have cots I strongly thought that girls should have cots also. Thinking back on my experience it would be wrong just to have cots for boys and not any for girls. Why haven’t I heard of others starting a protest about this discrimination and only having boy cots and not girl cots?
I know during the wars we had army cots and it didn’t make any difference if the person was a man or women each could have their own cot. These were not called boy cots. They were just called army cots and it didn’t matter who got to sleep on them.
Maybe it would be easier if we didn’t start a protest or stage a boycott but just change the name of all the cots to people cots. That way the boys could not say this is my boy cot and the girls could not say this is my girl cot. If we did this, I am sure we would never have a boycott.
