Bert and Ernie are not gay

Posted By: Section10Row51Ute

They've lived together for 42 years and share a bedroom, but the people who produce "Sesame Street" made it clear on Thursday: Bert and Ernie are not gay.
Nor are they heterosexual. They just are.
"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, they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation," Sesame Workshop said in a statement posted on Facebook.
There had been increasing online chatter that the producers of the popular, long-running children's show should allow the characters to marry.
