Sesame Street Celebrates Gay Pride

7 June 2023

Children’s television program Sesame Street is celebrating Gay Pride month.

This of course raises the question, why does Sesame Street want to celebrate divergent sexual orientations with your children?

The educational children’s show put out a tweet at the weekend announcing…

“This Pride Month let’s celebrate diversity and unity and spread love and acceptance. Together, we can make the world a kinder place for all.”


Sesame Street is aimed at 3 to 5-year-olds.

I suppose it could have been worse. They could have depicted Big Bird and Elmo sharing a Bud Light.

But seriously, please explain why a show geared towards very small children would ever need to recognise, or even mention someone’s sexuality.

No one would argue that we want the world to be a kinder place. But is sexualising preschoolers really the best way to do that?

Or is “spreading love and acceptance” just camouflage for baptising kids into LGBTQ ideology?

What?! You don’t want your toddler to be taught about homosexuality and gender fluidity? Why do you hate LOVE so much?’

No one’s intimidated by that sleight of hand any more.

Sesame Street put out a second tweet proclaiming:

“Everyone is always welcome on Sesame Street. Let’s celebrate LGBTQIA+ people in our communities this Pride and every day! Happy Pride Month.”

Pride Month isn’t about some fuzzy concept of “everyone welcome”, it’s about sexual orientations. The clue is in Sesame Street’s invitation to celebrate LGBTQIA+ people

Let me break it down for Sesame Street as only Sesame Street can.

L is for lesbian

G is for gay

B is for bisexual

T is for transgender

Q is for Queer

And none of this is necessary, let alone suitable, for kids who have barely figured out how to walk.

This isn’t a hateful position to take.

Parents put their kids in front of Sesame Street to learn their ABCs not their LBGTQs.

And as for gay activists who get upset when people insist that G is for Groomers, here’s an idea – and it’s just a suggestion – maybe people will stop complaining about you grooming children if you stop pushing sexual orientations and gender fluidity onto kids.

Here’s the really concerning thing; if a stranger befriended your children and then, without your knowledge, started talking to them about sex, you would call the authorities.

The problem, of course, is that the stranger who has spent years befriending your kids to now chat with them about sex is America’s public broadcaster.

There’s no-one to call.

And if you bother to complain, you’ll be called Oscar the Grouch… for daring to ask that a children’s show on the public network guards children’s innocence.

Tell me how to (for)get how to get to Sesame Street.

    Thanks to James Macpherson’s commentary style I’m able to keep my sense of humour in the midst of what we’re confronted with on a daily basis. Our only hope is in the Lord of all that we can see and imagine and of all that we can’t see or imagine.

      So important to hold onto our humour Annette. Whenever I loose mine the darkness takes on an extra dimension.
      Thank you for the reminder.
