New Front in War on Christmas: Gender-Neutral Santas

When people think of Santa Claus, they think of the iconic old man with a long white beard and a red suit who leaves presents behind for all the good little children.

However, some liberals appear to have finally come to the triggering realization that Santa is a white male (specific emphasis on the “white” part).

And apparently, some people now think that Santa needs to change his identity and get with the times.

Last year, logo creation company Graphic Springs conducted a survey asking people from the U.S. and the United Kingdom how they would modernize Santa, according to the U.K. Mirror.

There were some funny responses — 23 percent of respondents suggested Santa should have an iPhone, and 22 percent said that he should travel in a flying car.

However, things got a bit disturbing with one particular survey question: “If you could ‘rebrand’ Santa for modern society, what gender would he be?”

Nearly 28 percent of respondents said they thought Santa should be rebranded as a woman (10.6 percent) or as a “gender-neutral” individual (17.2 percent).

The idea of changing Santa’s gender is, of course, absolutely ridiculous and straight-up horrifying for a number of reasons.

I hate to spoil the fun, but Santa Claus is a fictional character. Perhaps the people who think Santa’s gender is something to worry about were never told this.

However, the concept of Santa is based off of a real man: Saint Nicholas.

Saint Nicholas was a bishop born during the third century who was known for his love for children and his generosity toward the needy. Sadly, he was persecuted and imprisoned for his faith in Jesus.

Over the centuries, European Christians celebrated St. Nicholas Day on Dec. 6 — a time when they would recount the stories of his compassion and kindness.

He was a real person. He was a real man.

To decide to reclassify the gender of a real, deceased person is to deny both history and reality.

This is another toxic example of political correctness culture and intersectionality.

If you’re not familiar with intersectionality, Reason’s Robby Soave has offered a concise definition.

“The idea is that various kinds of oppression — racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, economic inequality, and others — are simultaneously distinct from each other and inherently linked,” he wrote.

“They are distinct in the sense that they stack: A black woman suffers from two kinds of oppression (racism and sexism), whereas a white woman suffers from just one (sexism),” he added. “But they are also interrelated, in that they are all forms of oppression that should be opposed with equal fervor.”

What liberals don’t seem to realize is that the concept of intersectionality will eventually collapse on itself; the latest intersectional injustice will always be displaced by an even newer one because infinite intersections exist.

For the left, there will always be another aggrieved class.

Once they move on from Santa, they’ll push to celebrate gay male couples on Mother’s Day. But by blurring the lines of identity, they will only create further confusion.

With leftists, there’s no end to victimhood. When it doesn’t exist, they create it.

Their message flies in the face of the hope of Christmas.

Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ and the generosity and compassion that God has shown to humanity.

That was what Saint Nicholas originally represented.

It would be better to accept reality for what it is and work to love others, no matter who they are.

But true love is not what the left is after.

By arguing over what gender Santa should be, the left is simply distracting people from the true message of Christmas.

  1. We’ve got to do something about MP’s salaries. It would seem that Gerry Brownlee is moonlighting to make ends meet!

      • I follow your argument easily. Anything fat, sweaty, smelly, dressed in red & sporting a beard would probably be a Labour supporting feminist. Or a transgender pretending to be a fat, sweaty, bearded Labour feminist.

        The world is not a safe place for the innocent.

  2. Compassion, love etc is never what the left want. They are all communists for F sake. Unfortunately most of them have no idea what it was like living under communist rule. What the left really need are some real problems to confront them life. If there is no tragedy in their lives they tend to make it up. For some strange reason humans seem to feed off something to be aggrieved over, so if there is nothing happening they deem worthy to them to make them suffer they make stuff up to be upset by. It is really pathetic and time to get real. Leave Santa alone
