First it was Spiderman who'd make you gay just by watching him. Now it appears that watching Sesame Street will make you gay.

"(Washington) A group of powerful conservative Republicans have condemned the introduction of an HIV Muppet on public television, and have issued a veiled threat to public television that it could face spending scrutiny if it goes ahead with the project.... The American Family Association. The AFA says the character is a means for 'homosexual activists to influence young viewers.'"

Oh, FFS. Look, the show is supposed to go out in South Africa, a nation where HIV is rampant beyond words. It's aimed at little kids who've been born infected with the virus, to help them and their peers learn about the condition. It might save lives, for crying out loud.

See, this is why I hate people so much.
