JUST as the storm subsided after the announcement that the new Superman would be gay, the New Year’s advertisement of the Norwegian Post went a step further.
In it, the most favorite character of all the children in the world, Santa Claus, is shown as a homosexual! Based on the movie “When Harry Met Sally”, the commercial shows a meeting between Santa Claus and a man named Harry, who develop a love affair during the years of seeing each other while delivering gifts. The ad ends with a kiss, and her message has been shared by the public across the planet.
While activists, rights activists and members of the LGBT community assess the advertisement as a “strong and touching message of inclusion” and a reminder that homosexuality has been decriminalized in Norway for 50 years, many are not so enthusiastic: “Leave Santa alone! His sexualization is wrong, it doesn’t matter if he’s gay or straight.
The ad is creepy and disturbing, “wrote one Twitter user.
– Last year, the Norwegian Post was criticized precisely because of Santa Claus, who was angry in the advertisement because they took away his job. Now they have decided to help him, so that he can dedicate himself to his loved one – says psychologist Zoran Milivojevic, for “Novosti”.
– This advertisement lowers homosexual propaganda to the level of children. Santa Claus is an icon, children are told that he will bring them a gift if they have been good all year round. This advertisement may be quite acceptable in Norwegian culture, however, it would irritate many in our country, especially since the favorite children’s icon is contaminated with sexual meaning.
I looked at the commercial and it was ugly to watch two old men kissing.
Milivojevic believes that the advertisement of the Norwegian post office is only a part of the global campaign that goes from American and Western European cultural circles.
– We would have to see what the consequences of that campaign are in our country – Milivojevic tells us.
– Superman is read by young people, and adults do not believe in Santa Claus. Those messages in which homosexuality is in some way normalized and promoted, which is contrary to our cultural code, are intended for children. Today, a battle is being fought for children, because those who form their attitudes decide what adults will be like in 20 years. Children influence the future, and then certain groups promote their values and views of the world. The children are confused. It is a broader approach that calls on everyone to the right to choose not only sexual orientation but also gender. This hinders their development. The Swedes have just noticed negative effects in eleven children who decided to change their gender. Our parents need to know that they should pass on their values and views of the world to their children, and not wait for an NGO to do so in a program that the child will go through in both kindergarten and school.
The change of Santa’s sexuality, of the writer Ivan Negrishorac, is not surprising.
“It’s a natural thing,” he tells us.
– The world is heading towards a downfall and it can be logically expected that all the values of this world will be trampled on. A lot has already been trampled, and what little is left should be in the mud. It is the strategy of that spiritual force that guides the modern world.
Santa Claus, by the way, is redesigned every year to fit certain goals, from his climate activism to interracial gay marriage. But that is not the only holiday tradition that is changing in order to be politically correct. Popular Christmas songs have been criticized for allegedly sexist lyrics.
– In accordance with the development of the country and in accordance with artistic freedoms, I think it is legitimate. The question is how it would be viewed in another society – the writer Igor Marojevic tells us.
FAVORITE HEROES ON STRIKE
SUPERHEROES and cartoon heroes from the eighties are under attack. Pepe le Tvor was abolished after he was accused of navality, because he attacked a cat he was in love with. The company “Disney” has prepared warning notes with the cartoons “Dambo”, “Book about the jungle”, “Peter Pan”, “Maza and Lunja”. Even movies and TV series have disappeared from streaming services, because “they are not in line with the times”. The famous “Mućke” were also on the black list.
