Polish Government Goes La La

Oh dear!
Comment really is superfluous.

"Beginning in early 1998, the news was bristling with stories about a children's cartoon PBS was importing from Britain that features a gay cartoon character, Tinky Winky, the purple Teletubbie with a male voice and a red handbag.

"People magazine gleefully reported that Teletubbies was 'aimed at Telebabies as young as 1 year. But teenage club kids love the products' kitsch value, and gay men have made the purse-toting Tinky Winky a camp icon.'

"In the Nexis archives for 1998 alone, there are dozens and dozens of mentions of Tinky Winky being gay --- in periodicals such as Newsweek, The Toronto Star, The Washington Post (twice!), The New York Times, and Time Magazine (also twice).

"Michael Musto of The Village Voice boasted that Tinky Winky was 'out and proud,' noting that it was a 'great message to kids --- not only that it's OK to be gay, but the importance of being well accessorized.'"

From an article by Ann Coulter on, "Jerry Falwell, say hello to Ronald Reagan!"

Don't be so fast to condemn the Polish government.

There again, I reckon Ann Coulter is totally bat-shit.

No, Rebecca, of course the Polish government should not be condemned ... It should be lampooned to death for this move, which manages to be both idiotic and mildly sinister at the same time.
The proposition that radical gay propaganda is being subliminally communicated in Poland by means of a television show aimed at toddlers (the characters don't say much more than eh oh, by the way) is not one I care to debate.
