This has got to be the craziest article I have ever read. I grew up with Sesame Street and South African kids today have their own version of it, called "Takalani Sesame" in which they even have a Muppet called Kami who is HIV positive and shows the positive side of living with HIV. I have never met anyone who was not positively influenced by this program and those people have passed this on to their children.
This is way too PC for my blood and the actions of these people are nuts.
What does make me laugh though are the other news stories on that page:
"Thieves push Pepsi bottle up man's bum"
"Girl to have arm removed from her back"
"Man charged with shooting goat over beer"
