Sesame Street: Bert And Ernie Not Gay, Just Really Good Friends
Seasame Workshop has officially responded (via Facebook) to the petition campaign urging them to “out” characters Bert and Ernie.
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.
Good to know there won’t be any sexuality on Seasame Street…
