Sesame Workshop: Bert And Ernie Just Friends, Have No Sexual Orientation

Bert and Ernie are best friends. They were created to teach preschoolers that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves.

Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most Sesame Street Muppets™ do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.

Give them another five years and they'll be out like an incandescent light-bulb.

Well, onto Plan B.

The LGBT group also wants a Trans-gendered character on Sesame Street.

They say it'll help to reduce bullying in schools and suicides.



I'm not kidding.

So................there was a debate on the sexual orientation of 2 hand puppets
Link Posted: 8/11/2011 5:36:19 PM EDT
Quoted from the Comments:


"This is obviously just a kowtow to the hetero-normative oppressors. Bert in Ernie are clearly homosexuals, they just choose to be celibate, because Ernie sublimates his sexual desire by regressing into childlike antics. He frequently becomes psychotic and speaks to inanimate objects, like a rubber duck. This, combined with an extreme sexual frustration and an unsightly uni brow, is what ultimately makes Bert so grumpy all of the time."

One side was astonished that anybody would think there was, the other side argued vehemently for it.

Just conditioning. Put stuff out in peoples face constantly and long enough and it becomes accepted and normal.

That's what I overheard over lunch one day awhile ago from a group in a restaruant near here.

They may be right.

Meh. They see the way the next Congress is going- not the way of PBS. They want to make sure their funding is secure.

I didn't know that the puppets had genitals, which I always thought was a prerequsite for having a sexual orientation.
I must be out of the loop.

I have nothing against someone's sexual preference, great that they can now get married, adopt and try to lead a "normal" life but I'll speak for my generation which grew up on Mr. Rogers, The Electric Company and Sesame Street.Leave Bert and Ernie alone it's a children's show and should be left with what little innocence we have left in this society.
