And isn't there like a voice that talks to the teletubbies? I'm going to have nightmares just thinking about it. The handbag I can handle. :)

this was in the local Australian paper today?

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

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

this was in the UK news today about Poland and its crusade against Tinky Winky. I have actually met him in the flesh (the puppet not the voice) and he was very nice.. leave him alone... and get me a job creating childrens TV programmes!

became a target of religious conservatives after Falwell suggested Tinky Winky could be homosexual

And now we don't have to hear from this nut case anylonger. God rest his soul, but what a jacka$$ this Falwell character was :)

Doesn't the Polish government have anything better to work on? Like maybe the economy, unemployment, jobs, building those f@%#ing highways, corruption, improving the standard of living, health care etc....

Polish government = wiesniaki

It's these idiots who provide fuel to the fire for Polish jokes.

polishcanuck - right on the button. All the government does is fighting instead to provide opportunities for its citizens. Instead, so many of the young people are slaving abroad.

What are they thinking!!! (the idiotic government that is). The communists drove me out of Poland 27 years ago, but it's not much better now.

The headline "Poland investigates TeleTubbies" is being reported by the Washington Post, the NY Daily news and every major news outlet around the world. As I cannot read read Polish, can someone please supply the e-mail address for the politician Ewa Sowinska so that the rest of us can write and tell her what a moron she is?

thanks

this may have something to do with the fact that the sign for a male loo in Poland is a triangle which Tinky-Winky has on his head. Do 3 year olds think in terms of sexual beings, I thought from their bizarre form that they were asexual and I'm 50!! Am I a lost case for mankind?

how come this was in the news 29/05/07 and you've all been blogging 4 a year??? I'm resident in Poland at the moment and am amazed at the homophobia in the 21st century!!!!! i find it quite sad in a country that has come so far but obviously has so far to go.

You call it homophobia as if it were America, Homophobia is a misnomer, you have people who hate gays, and people who tolerate them, as well as those who could care less what you do, but (no pun intended), to label people as homophobes is just a way to detract the real issues, most people do not hate gays , just do not agree with the lifestyle!! Phobia would be for someone afraid, people are not afraid, just fed up with the gay zelots trying to get normal average people to accept something they do not agree with it is not phobia, or fear, its reality.

Where else will he find so gifted men?

gifted at what??

often the most ardent and ruthless anti-gay people lean that way themselves they just can't admit it. The confusion with their sexuality causes anger.

It is fear indeed.It is that gays try to mix in society in order to find lovers.So instead of visiting for example gay clubs to find other gays,they go to straight clubs where they try to turn straight men into gays.They admit that their goal is to raise the number of sexual partners for them.

They also have high positions in some branches like media and show biz,which they use for their benefit,that is they create there a gay environment hiring and promoting other gays.Through their poerful position in media they can influence the public opinion to be positive towards gay issues.

As a result while in the seventies the homosexuals were treated with behaviorism methods to become straight,now after pressure of the gay community they are regarded absolutely normal,a normal variation.

try to turn straight men into gays

How does one "turn" gay? do you wake up and say hmm I think I'll be gay today!
You either are or you're not one doesn't just become gay. No matter how pretty the man if you arent gay he can't magically make you gay you gotta want to.

See all anti Jew anti gay all night and the stereotype goes on thanks for making me proud to be Polish

Kruk have you been in bars with english men for example?If sb comes to you and starts talking to you in a special way,you will understand what I mean.Gays are aggresive Kruk.They do not confine themselves to smiling,neither ask sb if he is gay or not.

Wait in Poland and you will see.
