In case you thought those whackjobs who think every cartoon is promoting homosexuality only existed in America, it seems the Ukraine has them too. And they’re trying to ban Spongebob Squarepants because he’s going to turn the kids gay. Or something.
Morality police in the Ukraine are trying to get Nickelodeon cartoon SpongeBob Squarepants banned because of its perceived ‘promotion of homosexuality’.
The Ukraine’s National Expert Commission for Protecting Public Morality released the report, calling the children’s cartoon a ‘real threat to children’.
Some of the other shows under fire include Family Guy, Pokemon, The Simpsons and Teletubbies, which the report says ‘projects aimed at the destruction of the family, and the promotion of drugs and other vices’…
It also criticises the fact that one of the stars of the BBC children’s show, Tinky Winky, carries what looks like a woman’s handbag, saying: ‘in real life, boys very rarely want to put on girls’ clothes’.
Cartoon star SpongeBob has a large gay fanbase in the U.S. as well as a being a huge hit with children.
The ‘evidence’ that points to SpongeBob’s homosexuality seems to extend to the fact that he regularly holds hands with a pink starfish called Patrick, who is also his best friend.
I’ll take irrationality for $1000, Alex.
