Yeah, rite. And homosexuality isn't the offical British National Pastime, either.

ROFL !

It matters as much what this actor says as it matters what Queen Latifah says.

Those Teletubbies are the definition of queer, in the broad and narrow senses of the word.

Having settled into a well deserved obscurity, Tinky Winky's "sexual orientation", or teletubbie equivalent thereof, gets dragged back into the public consciousness once again. Thank you Jerry Falwell. If you are remembered nothing else, you'll always have the annoying purple thingy with the big pink purse. Just let Tinky Winky be whatever Tinky Winky is, just spare us if there's any tubbie porn. The show is tortuous enough without it.

I find it amazing that bigots can find "homosexual" overtones everywhere. They really are paranoid! What a bunch of losers...

(And I haven't noticed Jerry Falwell's resurrection, and it's been more than 3 days?)
