Santa claus was created as a man. And he is such a bamsefar.
Jacqueline Korsberg from Rødovre gets almost indignant when she has to take santa claus in the defense. Here there is no place for left-wing kønsrolledebat.
the Extra Leaf has been out and about on the Hill that keeps the christmas show this year for the first time ever.
And among, mulled wine, æbleskiver, christmas hats and powdered sugar, there was not much support for that santa claus should be reinvented as a woman.
In a study where 4,000 people in the UNITED states and the united kingdom were asked whether they would prefer a male, a female or a gender-neutral version, if one imagines that santa claus had to be reinvented, answered by 10.6 percent, they would prefer a woman, while 17,15 percent replied that they wanted a gender-neutral version of santa claus, writes the BBC.
- He is loving. With a good glance. So, I do not think, he must be a woman. I also think it is strange, says Jacqueline Korsberg.
At the Dyrehavsbakken is the good santa claus also incredibly popular.
Families with children stand in queue to get a picture and a gavesnak with the dear thick santa claus. And we get a little talk about gender roles. Santa claus is perhaps not surprisingly a little reluctant to give his title away.
- no, No, no, no, no, no. No. Yes, I know it is fashionable to say such a thing, but no it seems I don't actually, I ought to be.
- Yes, because santa claus has always been santa claus. And I think he should be. I mix me, not so much in such some thing. So I'm enjoying it. Being santa claus. And christmas joys. So anything else, it can all the others talk about.

The Danish kønsdebattør Henrik Marstal, denmark, which among other things has written the book 'Letters from a gender traitor', find the debate important and see it as part of a larger questioning of the established gender stereotypes in society.
- The most important thing about this debate is well that a considerable amount of people have begun to abandon the hard-and-fast idea of santa claus, despite the fact that, according to the language talk about the person uniquely is a man, he says, and continues:
- It is a quiet showdown, I think, with the idea that the authoritative, mythological figures in our culture the starting point is the men. And the showdown will also come to relate to, for example, round, knokkelmanden, yes even God. And the reckoning is already in progress with the Swedish church's recent offerings to the priests to use a gender-ritual in kirkehandlinger, where therefore God is not referred to as 'he' or 'our father'.
