Since We're On the Subject

Have you ever noticed that at the end of Star Wars, Luke and Han get fancy medals but Chewbacca gets nothing?  R2 and 3P0 get fixed up, but all Chewie gets is his hair brushed.  His hair brushed.  Like he’s just another droid or some kind of pet dog that would enjoy that kind of thing.  Here you’ve got this rebellion that’s claiming the Empire is bad because they kill people and hate non-humans, and they’re doing the exact same thing.  Oh sure, Luke and Han are the heroes, but Chewie is just an animal.  He doesn’t deserve a medal.  Why are we supporting them again?
