I cheered when gay marriage was made legal in NYS. I was and am very pro-gay rights but you know, this is making a statement for the sake of making a statement. I guess growing up, I never thougth they were gay. I still don't. I see no reason to suddenly make them gay. In fact, I find that rather as defining gay as something you just decide to be rather than as something you are. Maybe it's just me.

IF Bert and Ernie were gay, I'd say sure! But they aren't. They are roommates and best friends. At least that's what they were when I was a kid.

Why would Bert and Ernie get married? They aren't gay. It's disgusting that we live in a lewd world that assumes just because they live together and are best friends, that they must be sexually attracted to each other.

People need to get their minds out of the gutter.

LOL Even as a kid I thought they were already married ... now, I am not so sure. It works as it is, why mess it up with an actual marriage. They have been together longer then any other couple I have ever heard of ... let it be

I can not believe that people are still on about this. Has no one ever heard of the Odd Couple? That's who Bert & Ernie were sort of based on, same idea. I can just see them dragging Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau out of the grave and down the aisle. Spare me! When did it become impossible for two slightly androgynous male types to be room-mates and friends?

why does everything need a cause.....again i am all for gay marriage, and don;t think the bible should be used to ban them, however i also don;t think that kids shows should be use to promote it either....just let it be...

The makers of Sesame Street have released a statement saying Bert and Ernie are not gay. They said they are puppets and have no sexual orientation. They were created to show that 2 people who are very different can still be best friends. I'll see if I can find a link to the statement they released.

Have the makers of Sesame Street even released a statement determining whether they are gay or not?

What? I didn't even know they were engaged. Congratulations, I guess.
