HarperCollins Imprint Set to Publish a Children’s Book About Santa Being in a Gay Interracial Relationship
When I first saw someone tweet this across the timeline, I was sure it was a joke. I mean, why do we need to make Santa Claus gay? What purpose does this serve? Well, OK, I’m not that naive. There seems to be a concerted effort by mass media to push extremely mature content onto our children, often in the name of tolerance and/or diversity. Personally, I have no problems with people involved in homosexual behavior. I’m also in an interracial relationship myself, so I obviously have no qualms there, either. But what is wrong with a company who thinks pushing a gay Santa Claus onto children is a good idea?
This is simply insane. It might be the best example of our deteriorating society that I’ve seen so far this year.
IT’S SANTA FOR F*CK’S SAKE! WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?
I just can’t get over this…
A new picture book will depict Santa as a gay man in an interracial relationship, publisher Harper Design confirmed Tuesday.
The book, Santa’s Husband, goes on sale Oct. 10 and tells the story of a black Santa Claus and his white husband who both live in the North Pole. Santa’s spouse frequently fills in for his husband at malls, according to a description of the book Harper Design provided to TIME.
Daniel Kibblesmith, who is a staff writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and co-author of How to Win at Everything, penned the parody children’s book after tweeting in December that he would only tell his future child Santa was black. “If they see a white one, we’ll say ‘That’s his husband,’” Kibblesmith wrote…
Harper Design said the book is meant for all ages.
Like hell it is. I’m incensed, so I can only imagine what the more religious and/or conservative among us must be thinking. Yes, I know it’s not Jesus, although feminists recently “aborted” him as well, so yea. We’re clearly headed in the right cultural direction. I can only imagine what these amazing talents will think of next? Perhaps a transgendered Easter Bunny?
Maybe I shouldn’t give them any ideas.
