Finally, somebody else said it too:

Santa is a douchebag

When I was a kid, I used to watch the old Rankin-Bass version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer same as everybody else without thinking much about it. Then as a grown-up I started showing it to my kids and when we got to the scene where Santa tells Rudolph’s dad how ashamed he ought to be for having such a freak for a son, it dawned on me what a huge asshole they made Santa out to be. I didn’t want my kids watching a show that made Santa look like an asshole. When I explained my objection to My Darling B she saw the light, too, and our kids never saw that cartoon again.

Whenever I tell this story, B likes to add that I ruined one of her favorite childhood cartoons. Shucks, it’s all in a day’s work, ma’am.
