"Obsessing over the supposed sex lives of a couple of hand puppets would make anyone question such an individual's grip on reality."
When I was a little kid, I really loved Bert & Ernie. They never failed to make me laugh and they showed me the lighter side of the ups and downs of having a roommate. I still remember the Boogie-Woogie Sheep song! It makes me sick to think that the whole "We're here! We're queer! We don't want any more bears!" thing is now infecting our childhood elements which should remain sacred and separate from sexuality. Why does a 4-year-old need to learn about homosexuality? We don't even begin to teach our children about sexuality in general until they're much older. I'm "used to it" already, for shit's sake! You're parading in the streets naked in the name of gay pride. Point. Fucking. Taken.
Anyway, I just don’t feel that defining the sexuality of puppets, Muppets, what have you, is necessary.
