Bert And Ernie Not Gay

American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 47•33 Aug 15, 2011

Reacting to an online petition calling for Muppets Bert and Ernie to marry, Sesame Street released a statement on its Facebook page explaining that the duo are just friends and do not have a sexual orientation. What do you think?

  • “It seems like the show is missing a great opportunity to teach preschoolers about sex.”

  • “The petition-writers clearly don't know their Sesame Street history. The construction workers Biff and Sully were the ones who truly pushed an aggressive gay agenda in the 1970s.”

  • “If you're looking for gay puppets, I just finished watching Sexame Streak and I highly recommend it.”
