    Can't wait to see the backlash from the 'morally' ridiculous.

    No, this isn't news for anyone. However, if this is a real communication from the folks at Sesame Street, it will be the first time anything has been confirmed. If it is real, inclusiveness has taken yet another huge step (come on, it's Sesame Street and he's a major character!) and that's something we should all be happy to see. I relish watching the reaction of the religious right. ;)

    Of course he is gay. You think he could get a girl looking like that ?

    I dont understand how that means he's gay?

    Don't worry babe, I didn't get that part of the story either.

    OH yeah :)
    And if they really are coming out and saying it, that is a good thing, yes.

    It took me a minute as well to figure out. The key word is "mo" as in "homo." I for one, think it's a stretch. The wiki site for Sesame street says the characters have no sexuality as they are puppets.

    mr t is a born again christian.
    dont born again christians think gay people burn in hell?
    thus I conclude that Mr T does not take it up pooper.

    I have also never though Bert was Gay. he is just some kinda dorky OCD dull dude living with his more hip and cool and ADD fun roomate.

    also the word Mo means to me ... Lame.
    as in ... the new A Team movie is soooo Mo.

    Yea... I'm left wondering myself what the relevance is.

    agreed. He's a puppet for christ sake, why the need for labels?

    well, given he's a puppet we know he's into fisting.

    puppets need labels, for washing instructions!

    Does this mean he's been in the closet the whole time then?

    I just found out Rick Mercer is gay. Sooo many things make sense now...

    I get so tired of this. Did you honestly wonder about either Bert or Ernie when you were a kid?

    Let puppets be puppets!

    I can end this argument once and for all:

    If Bert were gay do you honestly think he would be walking around with a unibrow? I mean come on...

    Thought this was common knowledge...the guy used to run around the village pretty frequently.

    As for Bert, he's not gay. Not originally @ least. Pretty sure Jim Henson wasn't concerned with his puppet's sexuality.

    since you've pointed it out, I'm kind of seeing a resemblance now to Freddie Mercury.
