Funny, Sesame Street’s Definition of Marriage Mentions Nothing About ‘Traditional’

They kiss, they hug, they live together, they help each other. That’s what two people in a marriage do. How could Grover and this little boy be smarter than all the Maggie Gallaghers in the world combined?

      I can’t believe that I’m actually very moved and touched by this.

      Amazing how things just seem right when you keep it simple.

      It just proves that when things get overly-complicated you really just need to change your focus to the innocent ones to find the real truth. Keep it simple is always the best option for any situation.

      You know, I watch Sesame Street with my son in the morning and I have noticed more than once that they have showed two men and two women in parent montages. I was very happy to see this!

      This is why they lied when they said the revolution would not be televised. This makes me remember how much I loved Grover as a child. How nice to have a reason to like him even more today!
      Thanks to Jesse and Grover for the help.

      Now we know why Jesus said in the bible “suffer the little children to come unto me” he obviously liked to surround himself with those who could speak the truth.

      The thing is, sesame street has always been like this, that’s why it’s so beloved, why it can, and is, watched by people of all ages.
      The people who make the show have a simple philosophy of teaching children through television, and supporting diversity, and that includes LGBT couples and people.
      That said, technically Bert and Ernie aren’t gay, but that doesn’t stop everyone, even the puppeteers and producers, from joking about it.
