People are getting really upset about this cafe's 'gender-neutral' gingerbread people

By

There's a few things that probably come straight to mind when you think of the festive period. Pumpkin spice, chocolate, and probably gingerbread men. But one cafe in Auckland, New Zealand, is causing a stir after ditching their gingerbread men for something more inclusive. 

Around a month ago, The Tannery in New Lynn changed the label on their jar of gingerbread cookies to read: "gingerbread gender-neutral person."

Owner Andre Cettina said the move was made when customers started asking why they're called gingerbread men and not people.
