Get It Straight: Bert & Ernie Are Sexless Friends, Says Sesame Street
A group pushing their gay agenda on the lives of innocent children have tried to sully the sexless friendship of "Sesame Street" puppet pals Bert and Ernie by circulating a petition to have the two guys get married on an episode of the long-running show.
Now Sesame Street has lobbed back via a terse statement issued on their Facebook page, aimed at setting the record straight. Or neutral. Or just not gay.
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.
