Inaminate objects are not immune from Fox News and its projections.
Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce got the internet's eyes rolling when she insisted that gingerbread cookies are "obviously" men during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, during which she complained about "gender-neutral gingerbread people."
"In this case, it's calling a gingerbread man a gingerbread person," Bruce said, "When obviously, they're men."

People were understandably confused, but it seemed they definitely had a good laugh at Bruce's expense.
Who is this Tammy Bruce person and where does she get off choosing cookies' gender. Cookies should be allowed to choose their own gender.

I have been a committed liberal progressive Democrat all my life and I have never uttered the phrase "gingerbread person." Tammy Bruce is first and only person I have heard use that term.

If Tucker and Tammy Bruce are absolutely sure this is a man, then the men in their life are a little . . . lacking? pic.twitter.com/jllldxqpkr

Tammy Bruce is right. Gingerbread people are obviously male because they're dry and uninteresting but we keep them around due to an inability to question tradition.

1: Tammy Bruce is either saying that Gingerbread men are clearly men because they wear ties and are PRESENTING as male; implying that she has learned something and knows gender is performed and a social construct.
2: Tammy Bruce wants me to roll up little gingerbread dicks.

So, Tammy Bruce is an admitted man eater. Duly noted.

The segment also spawned a rather interesting discussion on so-called identity politics, which have often raised Republican ire.
Not Men. Not People.
