Conservatives Are Fuming Over the Gender of a Cookie

Conservatives Are Fuming Over the Gender of a Cookie

It's even dumber than you think.

The gender of a pastry is the latest conservative news debacle. 

A photo of a cookie labeled "Gingerbread Person" has angered conservatives so much so that they've taken to Twitter to yell about it.

"What is happening to our country?" one complainer wrote with the photo of the single cookie in question from an unnamed private business. "Stop voting for Democrats," typed another conservative who is openly gay. It even made its way to Fox News, where a Tucker Carlson segment pointed out that the inanimate object is "obviously" a man and called the renaming of it a "spiritual neutering," whatever that means.

Those whiny conservatives are getting absolutely roasted online by users pointing out the obvious hypocrisy. Of course, the memes (some slightly NSFW) quickly followed:

 

Social media activist @mattxiv summed it up the best in his Instagram slideshow covering the drama. If gender is associated with "anatomy and chromosomes", how can a cookie also be definitively a man?

That's just the way the cookie crumbles.
