Bert and Ernie just friends? Really?
Sesame Street issued this statement on its Facebook page today, in response to a petition calling for the longtime friends to marry.

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.

Bert could not be reached for comment.

Oh. My. God. So very wrong.

Sesame Street Responds to Marriage Petition: Ernie and Bert are Not Gay, They Are Best Friends

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.

I thought this was incredibly stupid, like when that guy sued E-Harmony for not allowing gay people. Not all gays want to be heteronormative, petition people!
