Just because it’s Gay Pride Month—yep, there’s so many varieties on the LBTIQ+ spectrum they couldn’t just have one day—in the United States doesn’t mean that it’s OK to sexualise children. That’s a big call to make I know, but it’s precisely what Sesame Street has done with their latest Twitter post.
Seeing that the characters on Sesame Street are not only male and female but also come from every sphere of the animal kingdom, this certainly expands the boundaries as to what #LoveIsLove now means.
Let’s not forget that Elmo, for instance, is only three-years old … but whatever, OK Groomer.
