The King of Pearland weighs in on gender neutral Santa Claus controversy​​

Last night, the great debate that earned the internet’s attention was whether Santa should be a man, a woman or gender neutral.

Almost 30 percent of people think he should be either female or gender neutral. Logo design company Graphic Springs surveyed folks in the U.S. and U.K for ideas on how to rebrand Santa (via CBS Pittsburgh):

The survey polled approximately 400 people from the United States and the United Kingdom. Then, 4,000 people voted on the most popular version of the Santa they designed from the survey.

“Modern Santa” has tattoos, a stylishly-trimmed beard, skinny jeans, sneakers, and a hoverboard. He’s tech-savvy and looks like he could easily feature in GQ magazine.gs-santa-07-full (2)

A new survey found that over 27 percent of people asked would rebrand Santa Claus as a woman or gender-neutral.

Nearly 11 percent of people said Santa should be female. Over 17 percent said he should be gender neutral.

MPN reached out to the winner of Pearland’s first drag queen contest,  Jayzeer Shantey, the King of Pearland for comment.

“Santa is based on a real man, St. Nicolas of Myra,” said Shantey who was crowned “King of Pearland” earlier this year. Maybe we should leave this one alone and come together to make a positive impact in our community.”

 

 

 

MPN OPINION:

The political correctness exercises have become more intrusive and more ridiculous. First the song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” was dubbed too controversial after listeners pointed out that the song contains troubling lyrics and may send a wrong message about consent.

Next, Rudolph the Reindeer is accused of  promoting bullying with lyrics such as “All of the other reindeer/Used to laugh and call him names/They never let poor Rudolph/Play in any reindeer games.”

What’s next on the chopping block?  Jesus and God?  Will we need to change the popular Pearland venue the “Mancave” to “Personcave?”

Santa is a dude. He’s a man. That’s not changing.
