Gingerbread Men Replaced By ‘Gingerbread Persons’


Gingerbread men have been banned at Scottish Parliament as part of a new drive to ‘stamp out sexism…’

Gingerbread men have been replaced by gingerbread persons in case the traditional name might cause someone offense.

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

GINGERBREAD men have been banned from Scottish Parliament because they are “sexist”.

The traditional biscuits sold at the cafe in Holyrood are now called “gingerbread persons” in a new scheme to stamp out sexism.

The £1.45 iced sweet treats, on sale ahead of Christmas, featured a tag with the hand-written title “gingerbread person”.

But the move has been slammed by Annie Wells, equalities spokesperson for the Scottish Conservatives who called it a “pointless gesture”.

She said: “Surely the Scottish Parliament has got better things to do than worry about what to call gingerbread men?

“This is an utterly pointless gesture which simply trivialises the real issues of gender equality.” More

What is happening to this world when we can’t even have gingerbread men anymore? Wow, times are changing for the absolute worst!

Is it just me? This is ludicrous. We used to make entire gingerbread families. Also, they are baked goods so they really don’t have a gender. These people must stay awake at night dreaming up things to be offended by.
