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.
