Bert and Ernie are outed and need to marry

I’m thinking many of you were not aware of this developing situation:

Will the Children’s Television Workshop give way to same-sex puppet love?

An online campaign is calling for the producers of TV’s “Sesame Street” to allow characters Bert and Ernie to get married in an attempt to “put an end to the bullying and suicides of LGBT youth”, according to the group’s Facebook page.

The petition letter adds that “[w]e are not asking that Sesame Street do anything crude or disrespectful by allowing Bert & Ernie to marry”, suggesting that the show “even add a transgender character to the show…in a tasteful way”.

Nothing crude or disrespectful… other than teaching young children that same-sex puppetry should not only be accepted and/or tolerated but affirmed, approved and celebrated.

And to ensure that our children are educated adequately, a puppet should be introduced to Sesame Street which has undergone a sex-change operation (will we get to see what parts were exchanged I wonder?).

No… nothing crude or disrespectful here folks… just creeping societal decay…

Move along.
