Polish government launches probe to determine if Teletubbies are gay
The conservative Polish government recently launched a probe to find out whether or not the children's show Teletubbies promotes a homosexual agenda. Much like the late Jerry Falwell, government appointee Ewa Sowinska is concerned that the show may have a negative effect on the children of Poland. Her concerns began when she "noticed (Tinky Winky) has a ladies purse, but (she) didn't realize he's a boy."
This announcement must seem ludicrous to anyone who has ever watched Teletubbies and already knows that the characters are completely asexual. They are neither male nor female, have no sexual organs and no sexual urges. Whenever the Tubbies show any kind of affection at all it's a simple hug shared among all of them.
Quite frankly, I'm disappointed by this news. To learn that there are still people in the world who think a person's sexual orientation can be gaged by their accessories is ludicrous, and to live in fear that a simple show about imaginary creatures who play together and have fun can turn a child gay is pitiful.
It reminds me of the old joke that goes, "Did you hear the one about the Polish government official? She thought an imaginary creature carrying a purse was gay."
