Baby Stewie Will Be 1 Forever. And Gay, Too


Well, glad that one is settled: Bajillionaire Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane puts to rest those “Is Baby Stewie gay?” rumors once and ford all. Yes, he is. Also, Homer Simpson is straight. MacFarlane tells Playboy: “We had an episode that went all the way to the script phase in which Stewie does come out. It had to do with the harassment he took from other kids at school. He ends up going back in time to prevent a passage in Leviticus from being written: ‘Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is an abomination.’ But we decided it’s better to keep it vague, which makes more sense because he’s a 1-year-old. Ultimately, Stewie will be gay or a very unhappy repressed heterosexual. It also explains why he’s so hellbent on killing [his mother, Lois] and taking over the world: He has a lot of aggression, which comes from confusion and uncertainty about his orientation.” Sounds like every homo’s upbringing.

Of course, this isn’t exactly news. MacFarlane outed Stewie three years ago.

    Most fags that I know are in LOVE with their mommy. And take over the world? Hardly.

  • glen

    @Fitz: and here I am completely identifying with Stewie (except my head isn’t shaped like a football, thank gawd!)

  • JJ

    @Fitz: That’s because they are OUT. It’s the repressed ones that have issues.

  • galefan2004

    @JJ: That is so incredibly true. Its the repressed ones that let their mothers rule their lives simply so they wont have to tell them they are gay.

  • James P. P.

    I can’t stand my mother. I identify with Stewie in that regard. As far as taking over the world…. I would love to, I know I would do a great job, I just don’t have that kind of time.

    It takes so much planning, you know?

    Seth MacFarlane for president! I actually mean that.

  • galefan2004

    @natt: He has my vote. Now, if he flashes some skin again, like in that commercial where he shows off his stomach then I will gladly get behind his whole campaign. However, I don’t think Seth can be president because he originates from Great Britain.

    between stewie and dumbledore, gays have it made in the land of make-believe.

  • Kropotkin

    I always thought he was bi, since he does seem to have genuine romantic attraction to girls.

  • anonymous

    I knew it since the “Road to Rhode Island” episode. I love him and little Olivia when they got married too.

    Though I am completely in love with this show I do hope he keeps everyone guessing about little Stewie. Why ruin a good thing? If people are that stupid not to put two and two together then why play teacher for the illiterate.

  • alan brickman

    it would have been more interesting to keep peeps discussing this instead of declaring it…

  • J. Clarence

    What was that episode of Family where they reported about whether or not bees can think? I feel as if this is just like that. Stewie has been a gay character for ages, not to mention in love with Brian from like day one.

    I’m glad MacFarlane finally put it to rest, but kind of surprised there was still some speculation left out there.

    @natt: Also, why would MacFarlane be good to run for President? Creating a TV Show hardly seems like a qualification for running federal departments?
