Poland to probe if Teletubbies are gay

Monday, May 28, 2007; 1:20 PM

WARSAW – Poland’s conservative government took its drive to curb what it sees as homosexual propaganda to the small screen on Monday, taking aim at Tinky Winky and the other Teletubbies.

Ewa Sowinska, government-appointed children rights watchdog, told a local magazine published on Monday she was concerned the popular BBC children’s show promoted homosexuality.

She said she would ask psychologists to advise if this was the case.

In comments reminiscent of criticism by the late U.S. evangelist Jerry Falwell, she was quoted as saying: “I noticed (Tinky Winky) has a lady’s purse, but I didn’t realize he’s a boy.”

“At first I thought the purse would be a burden for this Teletubby … Later I learned that this may have a homosexual undertone.”

Poland’s rightist government has upset human rights groups and drawn criticism within the European Union by apparent discrimination against homosexuals.

Polish Education Minister Roman Giertych has proposed laws sacking teachers who promote “homosexual lifestyle” and banning “homo-agitation” in schools.

In the USA, the Alabama Department of Homeland Security listed environmental, anti-war, and gay rights groups as possible terrorists.

Yeah right … Extreme right.

  1. Polish politicians say everything to make them beeing publicated or quoted. In Poland there is a proverb it doesn’t matter what they say about you as long as your name is spelled correctly so expect even more stupid things from them.
