Prime time TV, cartoons, internet diplomas, and same sex marriage, all wrapped in one story. How can I pass it up?
Rumors had been swirling around that a character on the Simpsons would turn out to be gay. The world has been wondering, who? FXCM reveal it is Patty, one of Marge’s sisters. After being rejected by every man in Springfield, Patty will turn to women. She will be seduced by a lesbian in a bar, and the two will become a couple. Evidently, Homer will turn to the internet to become a licensed minister after which he will join Patty and her new love in marriage.
I’m not sure what to think of all this. Patty becomes a lesbian because she’s rejected by men?! Homer is technologically savvy enough to surf the web? And becomes a minister? What will become of Selma? Will she be lonely sitting home alone smoking cigarettes and watching MacGyver? Or will she take up with Principal Skinner? Or Ned Flanders? I’d suggest a woman for Selma, but are there any unmarried female characters unrelated to Marge and her sisters?
I guess, I’m hoping I hear what others think. No need to watch the show to form an opinion; if you have one, fire away.
