What? No More 'Gingerbread Men'? Scottish Parliament Says They're 'Sexist'

If you’re planning on eating gingerbread cookies during this Christmas season, you better make sure they’re not of the “sexist” variety — well, that is, if you’re in Scotland.

The Scottish Parliament has banned “Gingerbread men” in favor of “Gingerbread persons” because they are “offensive” and the Parliament somehow believes this will help stamp out sexism, according to The Sun

This can’t be true, can it? It is -- it’s true. It’s somehow true.

Annie Wells, a sane spokesperson for the Scottish Conservatives called this motion out for what it is, saying it’s a “pointless gesture.”

"Surely the Scottish Parliament has got better things to do than worry about what to call gingerbread men?” she said. "This is an utterly pointless gesture which simply trivializes the real issues of gender equality."

But the British show “This Morning” takes a different position on these cookies than Wells. Back in August of this year, they showed how nutty this conversation has gotten. 

The co-hosts and the transgender panelist on the show supported the change to “gender-neutral” cookies (it feels so foolish to even write about cookies having a "gender") saying it leads to a deeper discussion.

“It’s a small thing, it’s a biscuit, like, I’m not saying we should all go mad over it. But I think that it is a small step in the right direction,” Chloe O’Herlihy, a transgender activist, said. 

“I have to agree with you Chloe,” one co-host responded. “We have to have these debates, we have to have these discussions, it’s pioneering that we’re discussing this on ’This Morning’ right now.”

I’d like to remind everyone reading this that we’re talking about cookies — not real people — but, cookies.

Thankfully they had one panelist, Julia Hartley-Brewer, a British newspaper columnist, that used her God-given brain showing how foolish this discussion was, saying, “I’ve got to be honest with you, if you’ve got time to get bothered by what you call a gingerbread biscuit, or what a gingerbread biscuit is wearing, your life must be incredibly said and empty. You probably need to get out more.” 

Couldn’t have said that better myself. More and more during this Christmas season we’re seeing far-lefties find reasons to get offended. They use these “offenses” to get rid of what honestly should never have been able to offend them in the first place, but what’s to be expected when you’re so weak-minded?
