Polish 'Tinky Winky' Investigator Ewa Sowinska Resigns


Ewa Sowinska, the head of Poland's national watchdog for children's rights, who last May launched an official investigation into Teletubbie Tinky Winky after noting the character's "homosexual undertones," has resigned:

"Speaker Bronislaw Komorowski said Tuesday that the national ombudsman for children's rights Ewa Sowinska will leave office June 30. He gave no reason for her decision...Sowinska was a member of the militantly anti-gay and anti-abortion League of Polish Families. The party was a junior coalition partner in Poland's previous government but lost its seats in parliament in an election last year."

She later backed off her investigation, issuing this statement from a spokesperson: "They are fictional characters, they have nothing to do with reality, and the bag and scissors and other props the fictional characters use are there to create a fictional world that speaks to children. We are not going to deal with this issue any more."
