Transgender teddy bears used to ‘indoctrinate’ children aged 10

I don’t recall that Teddy had either a tab or a slot.

  1. In 2021, the British Library hosted an exhibition on Paddington Bear.[72] The Telegraph journalist Claire Allfree acknowledges Paddington’s difficulty as an immigrant to integrate into British culture.[72] For example, that “children should practise their own hard stares and to imagine what objects they might take with them on their long journey.”[72] Scholars Angela Smith, Kyle Grayson and Lisa Dussenberry additionally discuss the role of Otherness in the Paddington series.[73][74][75] Smith writes that though children will be able to subtly learn the complex political and psychological issues of migration, Paddington nonetheless enforces assimilation to the dominant culture.[73] Grayson posits that even with specific negotiations of differences, Paddington remains in a precarious position in society.

    Leave Paddington alone you self-righteous
    Bastards.

  2. John – Scholars Angela Smith, Kyle Grayson and Lisa Dussenberry

    “Scholars” is a funny word for “dumb bitch with no kids an an SSRI prescription”

  3. I don’t recall that Teddy had either a tab or a slot.

    Some teddies have a tab saying “Steiff”. This makes them more expensive.

  4. Funny how they never indoctrinate in the opposite direction.

    “Children, I’m here to read a story about Sam the gender-bender. Sam talked to people outside school and discovered that nobody gives two hooters about what his or her pronouns are.”

  5. “acknowledges Paddington’s difficulty as an immigrant to integrate into British culture.”

    Only because he stands out as being an outstanding example of what we would like and hope the British to be. The whole series is literally predicated on the fact that Paddington embodies all the best qualities of the British:
    – polite
    – friendly
    – helpful,
    – encouraging
    – content to “muddle through”
    whilst also being
    – determined
    – resourceful
    – forgiving of natural human weakness whilst being resolutely unforgiving of unnecessary poor behaviour.

    No wonder he doesn’t fit in as an immigrant…

  6. Posh Edwardian Aunty/Uncle drawn to South America by the availability of land and servants to make their fortune/ spunk their inheritances on a ranch or a mine, followed a generation or two later by rich/penniless cousins returning to mooch in Wimbledon was common enough i’d say for Mr Bond not to feel the need for much exposition in the way of Paddington’s back story.
