d23: WippitGuud: Gunny Highway: stonicus: Marcie is a lesbian... I don't think Patty is though, she's always had a crush on Charlie Brown...

So did Marcie

So did Linus.

He was so hung up on the Little Red Haired Girl that he didn't noticed that he could have had an all-niter that would have made Caligula blushia

Lucy was a biatch...  I will say though, unrequited love is a popular theme in Peanuts... nobody who likes someone in that has that person like them back... Patty likes Charlie, but he likes the red headed girl, and she doesn't even know Charlie exists... Sally like Linus, and he doesn't like her... Lucy likes Schroeder and all he cares about is piano...

Nice jerb Newyorker.  I hope bigoted parents don't use this as a weapon on their children to dissuade them from liking SS.  Naw, people aren't like that.

ACunningPlan: 2 grams: Why do they have to drag Sesame street into all this?  Can't they just be puppets?

Classless Asshats.

^This.

None of my kids ever asked me if Bert & Ernie were gay; they never asked why Donald Duck didn't wear trousers.  Or why Tinkie Winkie carried a handbag or why Little Bear's entire family wore clothes but Little Bear ran around stark naked the whole time....

Little children - and the ones who watch Sesame St are very young kids - do not bother, nor are they particularly aware of sexual orientation; they're brains too busy figuring out a bunch of other stuff.  It's only the adults on all sides who obsess about who's "farking" whom on a children's t.v. show, and I don't know whether that's sad or ridiculous.


Wow, we actually have an adult in the thread... How did you find us?

Seriously, this.  As I said above, it would just be nice if kids today could grow up in a world where they have role models who are like themselves.  Kids' shows understand that with other topics like having a character who's disabled or a person of color.  I hope that in a few years parents and educators will notice a kid is gay the same way they notice a kid is lefthanded and buy them a lefty baseball glove.  Don't pretend lefty gloves don't exist and then tease them cause they can't throw for shiat.

Also...the Count is a Nympho. Probably bleeped the bleep out of both Ernie & Bert on multiple occasions.

WippitGuud: Psycat: And then there's Santa.  Guy with a bright red nose who laughs hysterically and falls down chimneys a lot?  Sounds like a chronic alcoholic to me--explains his big beer belly that shakes like a bowl full of jelly, doesn't it?  And I heard he's a cheapskate who doesn't pay his elves enough, so they've been forced to moonlight at the Keebler factory in their off hours...

You don't understand Santa?

Well-known guy, wears all red, lives in a place of extreme temperature. Has a bunch of lesser minions to do his bidding. Will give you what you desire in life, provided you comply with the requisites. He even spells his name with the same 5 letters! And has claws!

So the New Yorker is a kids' magazine now?  Or could it possibly be that adults have a tendency to read into the subtext of children's stories in order to find or imbue extended meaning?

People who rage against the idea that Bert and Ernie can be seen as a gay couple are silly.

OMG!  Bugs is teaching our kids to be transvestites!

/does anyone else remember the episode of Tiny Toons where Buster Bunny and the gang are trying to solve a problem and he says "Hmmm what would my Uncle Bugs do in this situation?"  and they all run off camera and come back on in drag?  Good times.

Buttknuckle: cc_rider: I'm surprised that the New Yorker would put out such a trite cover to celebrate a landmark case. Something with Stonewall would have made a lot more sense.

But I'll probably enjoy the inevitable poutrage from the fundie wackos who wouldn't be caught dead reading that lib'rul rag in the first place.

But then, we wouldn't have this all to talk about.

On a side note, the biggest lesbian in fictional history is Thelma.


Do you mean Velma from Scooby Doo? or Thelma in Thelma and Louise?

I used to argue a lot with the wife about this. They are fictional characters. They don't do ANYTHING when the cameras aren't rolling, so they can't have hidden lives.

Similar discussion was had for Holmes and Watson.

Holmes and Watson have considerably more of a back story than Bert and Ernie do.

Personally, I think Holmes being gay for Watson isn't that much of a stretch.

Big stretch. The back story was that Holmes was basically a shy misfit with women, and only met one that he really, really liked: Miss Adler; and Watson fell in love with and married a client. The guys were friends, that's all.


I'm sure that's what ACD wanted everyone to think.

While it's a clever poke at the show and the characters they go out of their way to establish that Sherlock is a deeply flawed individual with major blindspots; Especially regarding his interaction with other people. Remember how apologetic he had to be to Molly... constantly.

TL;DR Sherlock's blind spot is himself. He doesn't get when people are into him or not.
