Auckland Council will train you to be a Jedi, but only if you’re a man

Another storm in a friggin’ tea cup.

The latest installment of the Star Wars series may have starred a woman – but it looks as though an Auckland theatre hasn’t seen it, as its Jedi workshop was advertised as a boys-only event.

The theatre was forced to make a hasty apology and quickly change its advertisement after being called out on social media over what many believed was an example of gender stereotyping.

Another event in the same brochure promoted a fairy-themed workshop, which was labelled as being exclusively for girls. Both advertisements drew derision from a number of Twitter users

Of course, this has caused immediate and widespread “social media outrage”. (In other words, a handful of people had a moan and Newshub decided it was an easy target.)

I trust the council won’t compound this problem by only offering boys’ toilets and girls’ toilets.

For starters, there will have to be toilets for boy fairies who don’t want to go to a boys’ toilet.

Anyone get the idea our society is regressing into a dark age?
