New Yorker Magazine Cover Suggests Sesame Street’s Bert and Ernie are Gay
“The cover, titled “Moment of Joy,” shows the Sesame Street pair cuddling as they watch a television set featuring members of the United States Supreme Court. The suggestion is that the characters were happily celebrating the recent SCOTUS rulings on gay marriage.”
New Yorker’s story is just a bit over the top. My children grew up with Sesame Street, Bert and Ernie, and the show’s family educational and entertainment values. Bert and Ernie, were like Neil Simon’s “Odd Couple,” Oscar and Felix. They have been best friends forever (BFF’s) who happened to be muppets; i.e., an asexual relationship!
Of course, in today’s culture, unfortunately, almost anything goes and especially anything goes when it comes to advertising and selling papers, magazines, or other products.–Just saying.
