The Sesame Workshop, formerly known as the Children’s Television Workshop, announced that its flagship program Sesame Street will feature its first transgender character for the 2017 season. The character, who only has a project name of “Brunny” at the time of this writing, will join Elmo and the rest of the Sesame Street characters to discuss important issues of the day, according to staff writers.

“Sesame Street has a long commitment to multiculturalism and diversity,” said Sesame Workshop Director of Communications Bethany Millbright reading from a prepared statement. “So as you might imagine, adding a transgender character to our huge cast of diverse Muppets was a no-brainer. We understand that there will be some who don’t understand this addition, but Sesame Street has long been a vanguard of children’s television and we believe history is on our side.”

    You follow this far back enough, the source of this “transgender character Brunny” goes back over a year to a satire site called the Nevada County Scooper. The site lists “Charles Foster Kane” as a former editor in the 40s (this being the name of the lead in the Orson Welles movie “Citizen Kane”). Your You Tube link is totally unrelated to the “Brunny” story and is dated 2013.

    The problem with Christians passing on stories like this is that when a legitimate grievance does occur, nobody will actually take it seriously.

    Remember the motto of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”…never tell the same lie twice.
