Kids Were Asked If A Woman Could Be Santa Claus, The Response Is Alarming. (says the headline)

Just when you thought it couldn't get more ridiculous . . . "Marketing company Anomaly and RSA Films teamed up to create a video they thought would simply garner some “cute” responses. They wanted to know what kids thought of a woman taking on the role of Santa Claus. You know, the holly jolly plump older caucasian gentleman with a white beard, a soft red suit, and a matching sack slung over his shoulder. Now, if you’re thinking… well, that’s a tricky question because marketers have created an image for children’s favorite holiday cheer that just so happens to be a man, then I get it. But these children’s answers weren’t one of perplexity, but one of downright bigotry." Short video . . . https://youtu.be/Xumx9m5AAfg Full article: http://www.collective-evolution.com/2015/12/18/kids-were-asked-if-a-woman-could-be-santa-claus-the-response-is-alarming/

Most of the kids questioned replied with a "No!". For various kid-like reasons. Does this surprise you?

Have you heard about this?

Here are a few of the responses. Do you find them comical or bigoted? 1. "It would be too heavy for a lady," one little boy replied. 2. Another simply said, "For one, she would get lost in the sky." 3. "She'd have to go to the gym," another child responded.

Would it ever have occurred to you as an adult to interpret the children's' answers as being bigoted in any way?
