I sometimes think this world couldn’t get anymore ignorant, then I see these kinds of things. Yes, sadly you read the title of this post right. People actually want Saint Nicholas rebranded to be “gender-neutral” to “modernize” the world.
A survey was conducted by Graphics Springs, asking 400 people for suggestions on how to make Santa more modern. A group of responses were then voted on by 4,000 people in the United States and the United Kingdom. Roughly 10 percent said Santa should be a woman and roughly 17 percent said Santa should be gender-neutral.
There were funnier, far less ignorant suggestions though. 18 percent said he should have new hair, 20 percent said he should have tattoos, 18 percent said he should wear skinny jeans, and 17 percent said he should have a hoverboard. Maybe that would make it easier to deliver toys?
I wrote a post a few weeks ago about people ripping Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for showing bullying, exclusion, etc. and thought that was hilariously dumb. This one exceeds that.
From what I have seen though, most people on social media are baffled at the idea and are actually bashing it, which I love.
