Now I love Avenue Q and Bert & Ernie. So, when I saw the parody below of the song “If You Were Gay” I was greatly amused and

Ernie and Bert

filled with joy. Then, overnight a petition has come up which so far has over 300,000 signatures that wish for Bert & Ernie to get married on Sesame Street . What a great episode that would be? We also know the sexual tension has been there since the beginning (I am 23 now) and love the days were sexual innuendo that was on our TVs when I was younger and no one cared. Remember Play School’s John Hamblin’s cross-dressing?

Sesame Street has always been known for its progressive nature throughout its 45 year history, so in a day-and-age where Gay Marriage has been made legal in New York (where it is filmed) why not let these two marry or at the least introduce some characters that are LGBT?

What harm could it do? Teach acceptance?
