Winnie The Pooh A Hermaphrodite? Polish Playground Committee Ridicules Classic Cartoon

Winnie the Pooh is a hermaphrodite?

The classic cartoon character was apparently in the running to represent a Polish playground in the small town of Tuszyn but then council members decided that it wasn’t a good idea because Pooh was probably a hermaphrodite.

According to the Independent, the issue was brought up at a recent council meeting in Poland. One councilor denounced Winnie the Pooh as a “hermaphrodite” while the others agreed that the cartoon character is “inappropriately dressed” and has “dubious sexuality.”

An anonymous member said: “The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe … It is half naked which is wholly inappropriate for children. [Poland’s fictional bear] is dressed from head to toe, unlike Pooh who is only dressed from the waist up … It doesn’t wear underpants because it doesn’t have a sex.”

The meeting was secretly recorded and then leaked to the press. The most controversial quote comes from councilor Hanna Jachimska, who said: “This is very disturbing but can you imagine! (AA Milne) was over 60 and cut [Pooh’s] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity.”

The council has not decided which cartoon character will represent the playground in Tuszyn but we’re guessing that it won’t be Winnie the Pooh.
