Town Reportedly Nixes Winnie the Pooh Mascot Over 'Dubious Sexuality'

BREAKING: Winnie the Pooh is a hermaphrodite, exposes himself in public, and has no business being around children.

Officials in the Polish town of Tuszyn (around 87 miles southwest of Warsaw) were deciding on a mascot for its town playground, when the classic children's character was suggested as a candidate. They decided to rule Winnie out, because he's an "inappropriately dressed" bear of "dubious sexuality."...

Ahem! You poor non-English folk have obviously never experienced the thrilling fun of a 5-day cricket test match, ending in a scintillating draw!

Pooh is not a people.

He is a bear.

Wow, reminds me of the Turks banning the Pooh cartoons because Piglet is a pig.

Or Saudi Arabia banning Pokémon because some of the cards have six-pointed stars on them.

Sorry, guys. Winnie the Pooh is Canadian. A.A.Milne who wrote the stories was English, but took the name from the original Winnie who visited London during WW1. The Americans turned him into a commercial enterprise.

Strangely, the Wikipedia article also states:

They assume that because his organs aren't showing that he has a gender problem?

Yeah I really don't get the hermaphrodite thing. If he were that he would have both sets not none.  Plus even if he was supposed to be a bear (which he isn't, he's a teddy bear) that animals genitalia is actually not easily visible normally.  But it is pretty much a cartoon law that for boys pants are optional because cartoons don't reproduce (at least not the ones we see, there are apparently a whole bevy of aunts and uncles off screen going at it like rabid bunnies).

The only disturbing element there is the idea that toys (should) have any kind of 'sexuality'. Roll Eyes

Pat Robertson tried to have SpongeBob and Patrick banned, claiming they were a gay couple despite the fact that sponges are asexual.

And then of course there are the constant efforts to petition Sesame Workshop to let Bert and Ernie get married on TV.

At least Bert and Ernie live together... Spongebob and Patrick live in different houses.  I think it was also Robertson who said one of the Teletubbies is gay.  First because of the symbol on his head (oh yeah cause 2 year olds totally get group-specific symbology) and then because the actor that played him was gay (yeah cause those same 2 year olds are all about looking up the actors on IMDB in their spare time). Dude seriously needs a hobby.

Canadians are just English people LARP-ing being Americans. So close, yet so far.
