  1. Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most Sesame Street Muppets™ do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation.

    And just when people wanted Rubber Duckie to have two daddies. In the end they remain heterosexual life partners; two extremely close friends or partners, both the same gender, who spend an 'excessive' amount of time together on and off the job. So excessive that they might as well be a couple.
  2. I do like the, "They remain puppets and do not have a sexual orientation." response. Conveys the message in a way without any kind of political/societal overtones. Just telling people to back the frak off the puppet sex.

    I don't remember anyone writing up petitions to force JD and Turk to get married.
  3. Off topic, but uh... Best. Bromance. Ever.
