This isn't just a kids show, it's a young kids show. They don't even understand what it means to be gay. Teaching tolerance is a good thing, but this is weird!!!

I guess what bothers me is what message are we sending to society......2 guys who live in a 1 bedroom apartment, who are best friends and who have lived together for a long time have to be gay?!?!?

That's a good point about assuming things about people. I so agree!! Their approach is just off!!

Haven't really watched Sesame Street - although I have heard of it and it is/was popular here but didn't fit into my age group. Can't really comment as I don't know how they appear on the programme. It seems to be what's happening on a lot of programmes - but usually more adult ones
