Don’t ‘OUT’ Big Bird !

Are Bert and Ernie gay ? … and does anybody care ?
Well certainly not the under seven year olds who watch Sesame Street, but some
nutters misguided people are determined to confuse young minds by introducing them to something which they can’t possibly comprehend, by having the two ‘male’ puppets ‘marry’.
Like it or not the world of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) is here to stay, and same sex marriage (civil partnership in the UK) is becoming more and more accepted by those of us who believe in “live and let live”, as is the fact that two ‘mums’ or two ‘dads’ are no different from any other parents: but this does not mean that this subject should be drawn to the attention of those too young to understand.
Innocent young children must be allowed to remain in the magic world of puppets, cartoon characters and fairy tales for as long as possible. These days too many are forced to ‘grow up’ far too quickly.
OK, so it’s a bit of a laugh for some adults to speculate on the sexual relationship between Bert and Ernie (Remind me again, they are puppets aren’t they ?) but this petition, although purporting to have a serious motive, must surely be a joke.
If this goes on they will be telling us next that ‘Zippy‘ …
… is into S&M !
