Greetings-

We shouldn't. Waylon Smithers Jr. is a cartoon character for crying out loud. Now I have absolutely NOTHING/ZERO against the LGBT community, (I might be missing an initial) but We are typing about a cartoon character but the main point is We shouldn't care what a cartoon character does in His free time when not being drawn (see how silly that sounds?)

Now let Us pretend that Mr. Smithers is a 'real' person. How has this changed Your Life? be honest.... It hasn't has it?

So if You have an issue w/someone else's 'orientation' then keep it to Your own Self.

Remember what Betty Manners says "For 'polite conversation' One should refrain from discussing sex, politics and religion™.." We are The One.

From what I heard, it was done with the intention of showing one of the shows writers sons, who recently came out, that it is ok to be who you are.

With that in mind, i think it then becomes something more than just a cartoon character coming out, it's the idea behind it that's important.

He had a boyfriend that wasn't Burns in "Homer's Phobia" guy's name was John and he ran a knick knack and oddities store at Springfield Mall. Waylon sees John with the Simpsons at lunch and comments "And this is your sick mother John?"

So he does have other interests besides Burns but his heart is always with 'Sir'

It's never been a secret, there are more than a few episodes that allude to said fact.

When can this gay stuff just go away

They are people, they have feelings, they have a right to live their lives

Just stop It, does anyone really mind, does it really cause anyone that much grief?

It's been obvious for years.

I'm always fascinated that someones sexual preferences are used to determine their worthiness to be on the same planet with us. Oh the shock! The horror! As I've said before, we act like young teens afraid we're going to get cooties. Come to think of it, maybe teens these days are more mature than we are, if not by much. smh.

Clearly part of the Gay Agenda™. Gay marriage has already destroyed nearly every straight marriage in the US. No way I'm going to watch the Simpsons and be turned gay by the unbridled power of "teh ghey!"

(total sarcasm, but terrifyingly, there are people who feel that way who are literally given licenses to operate motor vehicles on the same roads as the rest of us!)

I think Smithers loves Monty Burns like a father.
A father that he is gay for.
I like Smithers. He is a funny character in an animated sitcom that uses a lot of funny characters.
I like Nelson Muntz also.
Doesn't mean that I am gay.

Foot-long hot dogs make Ned Flanders uncomfortable...

Right before Homer killed his wife.

LOL

Well, im going to be fair to the Simpsons. With how long they've been on, you have to imagine that they'll throw in any plot twist they can. And latch onto any publicity they can to maintain the brand.

But i feel stupider for even taking a moment to acknowledge the story.

That was the point of the thread but as I type this, I can see that I am guilty of that in which I addressed. I just thought it was inane that a story was written about it as if it were 'news'.

It's always been understood, and the dramatic majority of people don't care.

I think that you're looking for a problem where one does not exist.

He's a gay cartoon character--just like as with live people, who cares?

I am speechless. Utterly disgusted.

Shocked.

Life has lost all meaning.

I sit here, sobbing. I'm going to quit my job now, leave my family and go on a journey to search for my soul.

This has devastated me.

I'm not sure I can go on.

Gay characters on an animated comedy are nothing new, South Park had Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

Now I wonder if 'Blinky the Three-eyed Fish' might be gay.
