In another head-shaking sign of the times a woman has claimed she was shamed for referring to Santa as Father Christmas. Apparently, the pc police call it a crime as Santa must be referred to as gender neutral.
The war on Christmas just took a bizarre turn.
A viral Facebook post caused a festive controversy on the social media platform when a mom claimed that she received backlash for not using a “gender-neutral” term for Santa Claus, sparking a heated debate.
The story originates from an unnamed mom in Plymouth, England, who claims that she was shamed on a Facebook group after referring to Santa Claus as Father Christmas, the Plymouth Herald reports. The woman told the outlet, “Santa is now seen as gender-neutral. I was only referring to the book ‘Father Christmas’ by Raymond Briggs, but it’s left me a little confused/on edge about what we are aloud [sic] to say.”
The post allegedly sparked outrage from the permanently offended rainbow activists. It is encouraging to note that many people continued to proclaim that Santa is a bloke despite the claims he is gender neutral.
One person wrote, “Seriously! He's a guy, quite clearly a guy. I would have bitten back by calling him St Nicholas to be honest. The clue's in the name, Nicholas not Nicola.”
“Radical gender activists have successfully infiltrated most areas of life, not even Christmas seems to be off limits,” said Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith.
“The character of Santa is loosely based on Saint Nicolas, a very real, historical man. Activists try to hijack everything, especially anything aimed at kids. They also love to re-write history. This just continues to expose their lunacy and how out-of-touch with reality they really are.”
