- A politically correct cafe sells & # 39; gender neutral person gingerbread cookies & # 39;
- A gingerbread man dates from the 15th century and is a staple at Christmas
- Cafe The Tannery, in Auckland, New Zealand, found the name outdated
A cafe has sparked a heated debate by removing gingerbread men from the menu and replacing them with & # 39; gingerbread sex-neutral person & # 39 ;.
A gingerbread cookie is a Christmas staple all over the world and dates from the 15th century.
A café called The Tannery in Auckland, New Zealand, however, changed the name more inclusive.

Owner Andre Cettina told stuff the name change after a number of customers wondered why they had been called gingerbread men in the first place.
& # 39; It started off a bit, but it actually became a point of interest and started a bit of discussion at the desk with many people taking photos, & # 39; she said.
Since the name change, she said more adults are trying to reach the tasty treat.
& # 39; That used to be 90 percent of the time we sold (the gingerbread cookies), it was for kids. There are now many more people buying them, which is pretty funny, & she said.
Some customers were angry about removing the sex from the gingerbread snack.
& # 39; PC has gone crazy, always been gingerbread man, why change now. It is a cookie, not a living creature. I find this all so sad, & a person wrote.
However, not everyone has seen the funny side, with a number of dissatisfied people who call it ridiculous (photo of a person's comment about the name change)
& # 39; This ridiculous, crazy PC, what is coming now, the world has gone crazy & # 39 ;, another wrote.
& # 39; Boycott them only because of their gross stupidity, & # 39; wrote another.
The New Zealand cafe is not the first to change the name of gingerbread men.
In 2018, the coffee shop in the Scottish Parliament also changed the name of the cookie.
