Santa Censorship?

I wasnt sure if this should have went in Social Justice or not... but I think this is a lil ridiculous I mean a doubt if a child would think Santa was issulting woman, plus what next? they'll take it out of the movies too?

I think that is a little rediculous too. What about the garden tool, a hoe?

very true, it this this part of the article was interesting too;

Quote:
"Gimme a break," said Julie Gale, who runs the campaign against sexualising children called Kids Free 2B Kids.

"We are talking about little kids who do not understand that "ho, ho, ho" has any other connotation and nor should they," she told the Telegraph.

"Leave Santa alone."

I think that that is going a little too far. I mean It's not like they are saying it in that way. As long as I can remember it has always been "ho ho ho" and I never thought anything of it.

Wasn't "ho ho ho" used before it was ever an insult to women? Usually I'm all about not offending people but this one just doesn't seem right to me.
