Political Correctness gone mad as gingerbread men banned

Gingerbread men banned at Scottish Parliament as part of a new drive to 'stamp out sexism'

    Gingerbread men are replaced by gingerbread persons in Scottish Parliament
    The Parliament coffee shop re-named the sweet treat in case it causes offence
    30 per cent of women working in the Scottish Parliament believed they had been sexually harassed
Gingerbread men have been replaced by gingerbread persons in the Scottish Parliament’s coffee shop in case the traditional name causes offence.

The move comes as a strategy aimed at stamping out sexual harassment and sexism was introduced at Holyrood this week after a survey found 30 per cent of women working there believed they had been sexually harassed.

But the decision to rename the sweet treat has not gone down well with everyone.

Scottish Conservative equalities spokesman Annie Wells said: ‘Surely the Scottish Parliament has got better things to do than worry about what to call gingerbread men? This is an utterly pointless gesture which simply trivialises the real issues of gender equality.’
