Oh those wacky Polish children's rights watchers …. always a day behind and a dollar short. Remeber back in 1999 when Jerry Falwell deemed Teletubbie Tinky Winky a homo because he carried a purse (TW is the purple one)? Now Ewa Sowinski is on the same bandwagon. Well, she way until apparently someone reminder her of 1999 so she's off again.
“I noticed that he has a purse, but I didn't realize he's a boy. At first I thought that must be a bother for him,” Sowinska told the magazine in an interview her office approved before publication. “Later I learned that there could be some hidden homosexual undertones.”
Sowinska is a member of the League of Polish Families party, which is militantly anti-gay rights and anti-abortion. The party is a junior member in the coalition government led by Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
Spokespeople from Sowinska's office have confirmed that they will not ask psychologists to examine the character.
Kacszynski has famously said, ““It's not in the interests of any society to increase the number of homosexuals, that's obvious.”
I have a recurring dream that my father and I are on a long highway and we see a bridge that says “This way to Poland” and another exit that says “This way to France.” For some reason, I always want to go to Poland. My father goes to France anyway. For the record, as a lesbian and a woman, I'd much rather go to France. Thank goodness for my Dad.
