The Christmas trees and jingling tunes have arrived, but I’d like to bring to your attention as the Holidays roll around people will be taking their kids to malls, Christmas parties, and church functions to sit on Santa’s lap.
While it is an old traditions that’s been around for generations and may seem harmless, it’s not that innocent.
By taking our little girls to go see Santa we are teaching them that they need to ask men for what they want/need.
It’s also promoting rape culture and misogyny to tell them they need to sit in a mans lap in order to get what they want.
Do we really want the next generation of strong, independent women bowing down at the feet of men?
Feminists and Equal Rights Advocates alike are outraged. This has gone on far too long without anyone raising their voice.
I ask that you share this with your family and friends to raise awareness and take back Christmas for women.
Share the hashtags #dontsitonsaintnick
#santaisnotaseat & #santaslapisatrap on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr to join our army and put the end to Christmas Rape Culture and Misogyny.
