So now it’s Whittaker’s chocolate under fire from the confused genders – and why? Brace yourself.
Because their new coconut ice surprise blocks, made to support Plunket, come in only pink and blue.
This has drawn complaints from an outfit calling itself Rainbow Youth, it’s spokes-it namely one Frances Arns, expressing disappointment that the Whittaker’s blue and pink colours imply there’s only two genders.
Well get this Frances; there are only two genders, albeit a tiny majority of unlucky individuals are born with physical or mental confusing factors. They’re no different from other unfortunates born albino or without a leg or with red hair and such-like misfortunates.
But we don’t see them protesting about shops failing to sell one-legged trousers or advertisements with solely blonde or brunette models. Rather they overcome their drawbacks through greater effort, therein gaining everyone’s admiration. Devoting one’s life to whining about such differences is simply wasting it.
