Bikkie back lash misses joke - As in Today's Western Leader, Thursday 14 November

The Tannery in New Lynn is selling gender-neutral gingerbread people.

SIOBHAN DOWNES ‘‘It’s become a really good conversation piece in the cafe.’’Andre Cettina An Auckland cafe is spicing things up by ditching the traditional ‘‘ginger bread man’’for a more inclusive title. About a month ago, The Tannery in New Lynn changed the label on its jar of biscuits tor ead:‘‘gingerbread gender-netural person’’. Owner Andre Cettina said the move had been inspired by a customer who questioned why the human-shaped biscuits were called ‘‘gingerbread men’’ and not ‘‘ginger bread people’’.‘‘It was completely tongue-in-cheek at the start,’’ he said. ‘‘But it’s become a really good conversation piece in the cafe.’’Cettina said because the jar was on the front counter, customers had been taking photos and sharing them on social media. ‘‘We’ve had a lot of people commenting saying‘ stop being so pedantic, it’s just a biscuit’.I had to reply to them going, ‘Did you miss the whole point?
However,Cettina said he had also received positive feedback from customers who saw the humour in the name change.‘‘It used to be that 90 per cent of the time we sold [the biscuits ],it was to kids. There’s alot more people buying them now, which is quite funny.’’The Tannery was not the only business to have given the gingerbread man a modern makeover. In April, UK super-market chain Co-op Food said it was launching a new gingerbread ‘‘person’’.The supermarket ran a campaign asking the public to come up with name ideas for the gender-neutral character, who was eventually called:‘‘Crumbs’’.

My opinion is why are you changing a sex of a fairy tale story which is already a part of kid's stories of today?

If anyone does not know the sex of themselves, check between your legs what sex you are.

Are we getting to PC Madness about this? Wake up people. Jesus is coming soon. He will come to judge this world and everything in it.

Not as daft as it may look🚙🚙

Fiona from Henderson

I can see it now ... a row of dead electric cars on the roadside after making the decision to do a road trip.
Along comes a petrol fueled vehicle with the means to bring to live the electric cars.
Silly? I think not😄😄😄
