Creator Of Sesame Street's Bert Says Bert Is Not Gay Because He Was Not Created Gay
Word came out on Tuesday that one of the writers for Sesame Street’s Bert and Ernie characters saw them as homosexual and wrote for them as such. This was initially seen as a cultural win for the LGBTQ community who is always seeking opportunities to push their influence in media, especially among children viewership.
But within hours the Sesame Street brand came out squashing the idea that Bert and Ernie were in fact homosexual. First off, they are muppets, not people. Such toys are not sexual creatures even if they are assigned a gender. And it turns out these muppets are assigned a gender when they are created. In this case, we learned that Bert is not in fact homosexual because the man who created Bert says he is not homosexual. Apparently there is a ‘law of creation.’
A Twitter argument about Bert’s sexual orientation arose with Frank Oz, the originator of Bert saying that Bert is not gay. Someone asked him why Bet isn’t gay. Oz responded, “I created Bert. I know what and who he is.”
Upon seeing the tweet, it is reported that God stood up from His throne and exclaimed, “Thank you!”
The LGBTQ community feels betrayed by the Left-leaning PBS brand.. “We’ve been wanting a gay muppet for years,” says leading gay activist Steve Branchard. “It would have added so much credibility to the movement. This is a setback.”
