Parents on social media are accusing BBC of indoctrinating their kids by using politically correct language on a kid’s show called ‘Cbeebies- Catie’s amazing machines’. During the show, the host Catie Munnings tells viewers: “Snow is amazing. You get to build snowpeople and go sledging.”
This caused an uproar among parents and many took to social media to protest how BBC is indoctrinating their children by using PC terms.
One person says: “Put #cbeebies on for my daughter and they are referring to ‘snowpeople’.”
“PC garbage and indoctrination from the @BBC. Another reason to abolish the licence fee.”
Another reads: “CBeebies are now referring to Snowmen as ‘Snowpeople’. So ‘Frosty the Snowman’ now has to be rewritten as ‘Frosty the Snowperson’ does it? Why stop there? Why not ‘Frosty the Gender Fluid Snow-Based Effegy of a Human’? Stop the world I wanna get off. PC madness.”
A third person says, “The snowflakes are it again, apparently we can no long refer to them as snowmen, they are now snowpeople – sorry not on my shift I’m afraid.”
Due to the great deal of attention this got on social media, it became a topic of discussion on Good Morning Britain, with anchor Piers Morgan criticizing the use of gender-neutral terms.
“You don’t build snowpeople, you build some men. We, mankind, hu-mans, have built snow-men for 10,000 years.”
He then says sarcastically, “Catie you seem a lovely lady, whoever you are, but they are not snowpeople, they are snowmen.”
This incident comes after the European Union began its initiatives to combat gender specific words such as “mankind” in order to replace them with politically correct, gender neutral terms.
In France, Strasbourg, staff are being asked to stop referencing things to “men or women,” which was written in a new rule book, ‘Gender Neutral Language’ in The European Parliament.
