Children's animated series about a man with a long penis launched in Denmark
The Danish TV channel DR has launched an animated series about a man with a long penis. The show is intended for children from four to eight years old, writes The Guardian.
The animated series tells the story of John Dillermand (the surname is translated from Danish as “man-penis”), a mustachioed middle-aged man who has genitals that can lengthen up to tens of meters. With the help of his penis, the character tries to solve everyday problems, such as cooking and walking dogs.
Critics were outraged by the appearance of the animated series on television, believing that the adventures of a man with a long penis were not intended for children. Some Danes have argued that the male genital show glorifies patriarchal society and interferes with gender equality, especially against the backdrop of the #MeToo anti-harassment movement, which gained traction in Denmark in late 2020.
The animated series also found advocates who reminded children that genitals are often something funny for children. DR television responded to critics that it could easily air an animated series “about a woman who does not control her vagina,” noting that the most important thing is that the show is to be enjoyed by children.
