Social Justice Leftists are on a warpath against Sesame Street. PJ Media reports:
Frank Oz, the famed puppeteer who collaborated with Jim Henson for many years developing beloved characters, is pushing back against Sesame Street writer Mark Saltzman’s claim that Bert and Ernie are gay.
It seems Mr. Mark Saltzman was asked if Bert & Ernie are gay. It's fine that he feels they are. They're not, of course. But why that question? Does it really matter? Why the need to define people as only gay? There's much more to a human being than just straightness or gayness.

The Sesame Street world was rocked this week when Saltzman claimed that Ernie and Bert were lovers.
“I always felt that without a huge agenda, when I was writing Bert & Ernie, they were [gay]. I didn’t have any other way to contextualize them,” Saltzman told Queerty.
Sesame Street tweeted a quick denial after that news broke.
This whole sequence shows just how much liberals inject sexuality into every aspect of our lives.
