Winnie the Pooh denounced as hermaphrodite


The beloved character of childrens' book and animated feature film has been banned from a Polish playground.

Why? Because of his "dubious sexuality" and "inappropriate" dress, writes Jess Denham.

One unnamed councillor can be heard discussing Pooh's sexuality, arguing that "it doesn't wear underpants because it doesn't have a sex" before another, Hanna Jachimska starts criticising Winnie the Pooh author AA Milne.

"This is very disturbing but can you imagine! The author was over 60 and cut [Pooh's] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity," she said.
