As if all of the think-pieces about “Baby It’s Cold Outside” as a date-rape anthem hadn’t ruined the holiday spirit, here’s a little gem that CBS News came across. According to a new survey, more than a quarter of people believe an updated Santa Claus should be female or at least gender neutral.

We all know this is probably an overrepresented group based on a poor sample size so gtfo

And the prize goes to Mr. Kringle for calling it.

According to the story, graphic design company GraphicSprings used Google surveys to collect responses from a whopping 400 people across the U.S. and U.K. on how they would “rebrand Santa with a more modern edge.”
Among the modern touches were tattoos (20 percent) and skinny jeans in place of the traditional red-and-white suit (18 percent).
So, put another way, almost 75 percent of people responding to an unscientific online survey conducted by a graphic design firm were against the idea of a gender-fluid Santa Claus.
Maybe a quarter of a person… Or 25% "of people"* in Brooklyn antifa meetings*But not a quarter "of people"

Well, except for the fact that he is based on an actual MAN, St. Nicholas. The dumbing down of America is nearly complete.

More than a quarter or people don't seem to realize that Santa was a real person who actually existed and that they should fuck right off. https://t.co/jAGc2piqKV

Santa isn’t even shape neutral or age neutral; he’s always a bearded fat guy. He has to lose weight and beard neutrality too…

Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle is male. Get over it.

In the future, expect to start meeting young girls named "Nicholas" whose Leftist parents attempted to make the name unisex after normal people pointed out to them that Santa Claus is also named St. Nicholas, which is a male name.

And therefore almost three quarters do not. There’s your headline.

So the majority of people believe Santa should remain a man. Great reporting CBS.

I love how you think this is newsworthy.
