    it could just be me but when i was little watching this there was no problem with two males sleeping in bed together why is it such a problem now? people in this country are just cry babies these days and need to learn that not everything is a stab at them and their beliefs..if u dont like it go look somewhere else..thats the great thing about america

    I think using Ernie and Burt made gay people look stupid, stuffy and boring. Actually insulting to the gay community.

    Kids today are a lot smarter than what we think they are whether we teach them or not. They tend to put things together a lot quicker and for those young children it matters not because your kids will teach you.

    since Bert and Ernie used to sleep in the same bed, I think the implication was there, at least I recall quite clearly Bert complaining about crumbs Ernie got in the bed, but then I have a great recall of old tv, so I can see that most people would not recall this and might be shocked more so than I. So it's not upsetting to me, and kids who read the New Yorker would have quite liberal parents, since it's not National Review or something where people who are not leftist literature fans are apt to have it come into their homes against their will, so my basic reaction is a "yeah duh so and" one, however it's ducky that people have something to go crazy over that is of zero gravitas!

    I think its cute as long as they dont make the lesbian puppets look all manly like Chaz Bono (although Chaz did gender reassignment) and Chaz seems like pretty decent person. However, I insist that the gay hype is partial to sophisticated males and not toward lesbians who look like males. Mark my words; it will be crazy in a couple of years.

    A god doesn't have anything to do with people loving each other. That said, I believe it's been noted that Bert and Ernie are roommates - just friends. Although Bert seems old, they are just two "kids" sharing a room.

    I don't think they should have used Sesame Street characters to depict gay marriage. Some parents do not want their kids to know about that stuff just yet. Small children should not be shoved sexuality in their faces every time they see these cartoon characters. I think it went too far.

    does not matter to me one way or the other. just stay away from me with it. God did not intend same sex together. And God is the one we have to all answer to on judgement day. so each their own. we all have some dirt

    some people on this thread seem very confused as to whether these puppets are alive. a couple of you seem to think we shouldn't be telling "which ever they are." way to anthropomorphize! um, you can't out a puppet. Or can you........

    I can't believe what this world has come to now.They have totally legalized pot and now it is "OK" for GAYS and LESBIANS TO GET MARRIED TO EACH OTHER.THAT IS NOT HOW OUR LORD INTENDED FOR THE WORLD AND FOR PEOPLE TO ACT. MARRAIGE IS BETWEEN ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN. THAT IS HOW IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN. IF OUR LORD WANTED IT THE OTHER WAY, HE WOULD OF DONE IT. A WOMAN CANNOT CONCIEVE FROM ANOTHER WOMAN. AND A MAN CANNOT GET ANOTHER MAN PREGANT,I AM JUST SO SICK OF ALL OF THIS AND TO INVOLVE BERT AND ENRIE CHILDREN'S FAVORITE 2 FROM THE MUPPETS WELL THAT IS JUST WAY OVER THE TOP.
