When these kids were asked “if Santa was a woman, could she do the job?” some of the answers were a little cringeworthy.

The video was made by a creative agency in the U.K. who wanted to make a point about gender inequality.

One little girl pointed out that, “If she had a baby she’d be doing the presents, taking care of the baby, giving it milk,” which is probably where a female Santa could bring her amazing multi-tasking skills to the role.

But faith is restored when one little boy answers, “Maybe the girl Santa might be one of, like, the strongest ladies in the world, girls aren’t any different than boys.”

What do you think your children would say?
