New Petition wants Bert and Ernie Gay!
The petition states, this "would show children and their parents that not only is it acceptable but also teach children that homophobia is wrong, bullying is wrong and that Sesame street should recognize that there are LGBT relationships, families, and include them in their show."
The Sesame Workshop responded in a statement: "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."
I have always viewed Sesame Street as a show that teaches lessons of tolerance and compassion to children and adults abroad. I love Bert and Ernie's friendship and feel the characters should remain unchanged.
How about you? Do you feel the characters Bert and Ernie should come out as a Gay couple?? Share your honest thoughts
