Political correctness should just stay out of Christmas.
Famed astrophysicists Neil deGrasse Tyson publicly announced that Rudolph the red rose reindeer has been misgendered.
The astrophysicists continued by saying reindeer lose their antlers by Christmas time so Rudolph must be a female.
I’m sure executives in Hollywood took notice and Rudolph’s gender will be changed next year.
Santa doesn’t know Zoology:
Both male & female Reindeer grow antlers. But all male Reindeer lose their antlers in the late fall, well-before Christmas.
So Santa’s reindeer, which all sport antlers, are therefore all female, which means Rudolf has been misgendered. pic.twitter.com/fkHqhJM7dY

Neil doesn’t know the Magic of Christmas.
Are you also going to explain the science of flying reindeer, glowing red noses, elves & delivering toys worldwide in one night? 🙄
Rudolph is still a male deer. https://t.co/zHiZNU1fQI

The Daily Caller covered Tyson’s comments:
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson complained on Christmas Eve that Santa Claus had “misgendered” Rudolph, the most famous of his eight reindeer.
“Santa doesn’t know Zoology,” Tyson tweeted, explaining, “Both male & female Reindeer grow antlers. But all male Reindeer lose their antlers in the late fall, well-before Christmas.” (RELATED: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Drops Bomb On ‘The View’ — Says ‘I Don’t Object’ To A Space Force)
“So Santa’s reindeer, which all sport antlers, are therefore all female, which means Rudolf has been misgendered,” Tyson concluded.
Next you’re going to tell me he doesn’t fly all around the world in one night, come down all our chimneys, and leave presents for good little boys & girls.
Bah humbug. A lump of coal for you.

The amazing thing about this tweet – and it has to be deliberate, so I sort of respect the hustle – is it gets progressively more obnoxious the further along you read. About midway through you say to yourself "wow there's no way this could get more obnoxious" then bam, punchline. https://t.co/QuHNsMikzG

Make sure you have a pre-recording of these old traditional Christmas shows because they might not be around much longer.
