Why does everything have to be political?
In the age of identity politics, nothing is safe from the clutches of the left’s social agenda, including mythical characters like Santa Clause.
It apparently wasn’t enough when, last year, a picture book was released depicting Santa in an interracial homosexual marriage (because why not?)
Sooner or later, they were going to come for Old Father Christmas’ gender identity as well, and sure enough, because we are officially in the weirdest era in human history, apparently nearly 30% of Americans want to see either a female or gender-neutral Santa.
Why? Because, apparently, old white men giving out presents is “creepy” (sorry, old white guys! Looks like you can keep your gifts for yourself this year.)
A new survey by a graphic design company revealed that 27 percent of Americans want to see Santa rebranded as a female or a gender-neutral figure. More than 10 percent of respondents said that Santa should be a woman. A whopping 17 percent said that Santa should be a “gender-neutral” figure.
“I picture a woman giving presents,” one New Jersey resident said. “I just feel like a white, old man giving presents is kind of creepy.”
“I think Santa is a mystical creature, so it can be whatever you want it to be,” said another New Jersey resident said, referring to the belief that Santa could be a “gender-neutral” figure.
To be fair, humans with no gender are about as mystical as Santa himself.
