Snow Persons

Post by Nick_A »

Thisweatherman can't tell the difference between snowmen and snowwomen so calls them snowpersons

Weather Channel field reporter Matt Seidel was subjected to some playfully mockery on social media after referring to a snowman as a "snowperson" in a tweet on Tuesday.
Even kids know that the difference between a snowman and a snowwoman is snowballs. Did the weatherman check? A typical PC oversight

That reminds me. I must teach the youngsters to make snow angels, in case they don't already know how.

I wonder if the weatherman would have a problem with that concept?

'The ascent of man' has been renamed 'The ascent of person'.

Your sarcasm will not be tolerated by right thinkers. Snowmen are being castrated daily and replaced by snowpersons. Snowmen will just melt away when faced with scorn from right thinkers.

Snowmen, for a lot of us, are synonymous with days off school and spending weekends at the park, wrapped up making our human-like figures.

The ‘snowman’ is at at the forefront of our childhood winter memories – waking up, looking outside, seeing the snow and then going downstairs to demand our guardians hand over a carrot and some buttons we can use in order to build our beloved snowmen.

But are we wrong to be referring to them as ‘men’?

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the rise of the term ‘gender fluid’, a concept some portions of society have continued to be challenged by, but one which has seen great strides in its social and cultural understanding – the idea a person doesn’t necessarily identify as having a fixed gender regardless of their biological make-up.

Problems occasionally arise in society when accepted norms are challenged and people feel their way of life is being threatened.

Unfortunately, gender-fluidity falls into the ‘threatening’ category for a lot a people – turns out – there are some who see the idea of Snowmen being renamed to something more gender fluid like ‘Snowperson’, as a real threat to their way of life....................................
Parents favoring gender clarity as opposed to gender neutrality must teach their kids to put snowballs on their creation if they are considered male and carve vaginas into their creation if considered female. That way onlookers will know how to refer to them solving the problem of gender fluidity.

So all snowmen should be snowwomen?

Trivia. This is being PC about PC.

The media wants us to argue amongst ourselves about this crap. What they don't want is for us to talk about excessive immigration levels and tax fraud by multinational companies.

Let's talk about tax avoidance by multinational companies. Who or what do you think is most responsible for letting them get away with it rather than closing the loopholes?

The carrot must make the ultimate decision if it will align itself with the snowballs or take refuge in the snowvagina. It must solve the problem quickly or climate change will render it meaningless leaving us with only questions of multinational corporations and tax avoidance and where we should eventually stick the carrot. Decisions, decisions!

The PC placement is not the crotch.

It's the forehead.
