Explain this to me like I’m a child:
Henson doesn’t want Bert and Ernie to get married partly because they’re just puppets, right? And puppets shouldn’t have a sexuality or get married or anything. They aren’t people. They’re puppets.
Well, first of all, I think Jim Henson is rolling in his grave to hear his own company dismiss the Muppets are just puppets. I mean really, guys, you have to do better than that.
But it makes me wonder something…
Kermit and Miss Piggy. They had this whole romance and eventually got married, right? Where is the difference? Aren’t they just puppets and so they shouldn’t be married or have a relationship or anything?
I need someone to explain the difference to me, in very simple terms, that shows me how this is vastly difference, outside of the gender preference involved.
