I was sorry to see this absurdity on the front page again this morning. We need to let this go. Let this thread go, among several others on the front page and stop giving so much attention to events that are clearly meant to cause more derision and animosity.
This site has become a breeding ground to proliferate hate among our own people. And it's User-content generated, so the members are doing it.
It is really worth a few stars to add to divisions among our own citizens?

Nah...just tryin' for a little bit of humor in the middle of all the stupid stuff that keeps surfacing. It's hard to believe people have so little to complain about that they have to try and darken others happiness. Especially at this time of year. :

Pointing out moronic attitudes isn't moronic.
If we just ignored it, or "let it go" then it'll be the morons who get to ban "brown bag lunches" or "white Christmas" because no one said anything.
Why would you want to silence dissent?
Online feminists and social justice warriors (SJWs) have been fooled by users of an internet forum into starting a campaign to ban the Christmas tradition of kissing under mistletoe. Apparently, the small plant promotes nonconsensual kissing and even rape.
feminists fell for it. #SayNoToMistletoe Mistletoe promotes rape culture and is yet another way patriarchy dominates society. No family should have a mistletoe. — Ted Veerman (@TedVeerman) December 4, 2015
This tag is so pathetic, and feminists will ofc be blamed for it when anti-fems were the ones who started it #SayNoToMistletoe
Just three days after the prank was concocted — in a move unconfirmed to be connected to the hashtag — Cornell University in the US decided that mistletoe was no longer politically correct. Campus authorities issued a document demanding that students and staff avoid the tradition, because it “doesn’t create an inclusive environment”.
One does have to wonder what kind of society they will transform the US into.
