Is it me, or does this article make gay people sound like slow children?

Gays Hooked On 'SpongeBob' Cartoon
Creator Says Show Is About Tolerance

October 9, 2002


Forget about Tinky-Winky and the "Teletubbies" -- gays are now obsessed with the popular Nickelodeon cartoon "SpongeBob SquarePants".

The Wall Street Journal reports that gays are hooked on "SpongeBob's" optimism, his weird psychedelic world and strange sense of humor.

One gay clothing designer says he likes "SpongeBob" because he's "not very masculine" -- and "he's soft."

Talk show host Conan O'Brien recently asked Tom Kenny -- the voice of SpongeBob -- if his pal Squidward is gay. Kenny wouldn't say, but he did joke that "all the main characters are hiding horrible secrets."

There's also speculation that SpongeBob and his friend Patrick are lovers. They're often seen holding hands.

The show's creator says none of the characters are gay -- but he says gays like the show because it's about "tolerance."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Somehow it seems like he uses the term "gays" like he would "babies."
