Scotland achieves gender equality with switch to “Gingerbread PERSON”

David MenziesMission Specialist

2018 has been a brutal year for the English language with the invention of words like Peoplekind and Fisherfolk and now, in a perversely ironic twist of fate from the land of gingers, the term gingerbread man is under the ban in an effort to be more gender equal.

It seems the truly impressive amount of Scottish invention and innovation is ancient history.

Even the land of Braveheart is descending into politically-correct madness after word came down that staff in their parliament’s coffee shop were ordered to stop using the term “Gingerbread Man”, opting instead for the gender-neutral “Gingerbread Person.”

After all, you don’t want to be labeled as some crazy sexist or transphobe when you’re chowing down on a baked-good, right?

And naturally, since the gingerbread edict came into play, there’s no more sexism in Scotland the Brave anymore!

Not really, but the question arises: Why has the developed world become so obsessed lately with watered-down language, safe spaces and political correctness to the point that it is now unintentionally funny?

I think an answer can be found in a book I’m currently reading that notes Scotland was a horrid place to live during the lean years of 1686 to 1703 when they experienced seven years of famine.

When one is literally starving to death thanks to years of failed harvests, the hierarchy of needs takes on a radically different look, doesn’t it?

Just because they change the words doesn’t mean we have to be puppets & repeat them. Ignore these jerks & first thing you know it will all all be forgotten.

It would have bean easier just to start selling gengerbread women too.
But that wouldn’t create the divide and conquer rule witch is the snow flakes real objective.

Stop the World i need to get off.

“Sad to say that Junior has some Scottish heritage, his mother was a Sinclair.”

You are correct, David, a little hardship does tend to straighten things out again for a while.

First is was Happy Holidays.
Second gingerbread persons.
What will be the 3rd Christmas redefinition?

So now Dopeau will be saying he’s right with his person kind. A plop of dough confirmed he’s right.
He’ll probably go so far as to declare himself Scottish, like Pocahontas.

So the nursery rhyme,

“Run, run as fast as you can.
You can’t catch me,
I’m the gingerbread man.”,

has to be modified. Maybe to,

“Run, run really fast queer,
The gingerbread person,
Is just too quick to be near.”

Hey, the bonus is using one of the public school gender education terms.

There must be better suggestions for the rhyme out there.

Over the last two centuries Scotland’s men either emigrated or were killed on battlefields.

There’s nay much testosterone left there.

When is the silent majority, if it even exists. going to rise up to this insanity?
