Gay Character Revealed In Simpsons. Any Time Soon?

Wed Jan 05, 2005 12:20 am

I remember there was a rumour last summer that sometime around New year, at the start of 2005, one of the characters in the Simpsons would come out of the closet. there have even been online polls on who people think is the one to reveal that he/she/it is gay.

But does anyone know when this character is revealed?

My bet is that Smithers is far too obvious. So I'm guessing Patty.  Smile

Right. "Homer Sexual" is too obvious also.

My guess is Todd Flanders.

Why not Bart's dog? Though if "Santa's Little Helper" is really what it's called in English, that'd also be too obvious.

Wasn't there an episode were they showed how are all Simpsons characters are doing in ~20 years? I guess the episode was about Lisa's wedding or something like that and they showed that both of Flanders' sons are gay.

Yeah, Smithers is already out. Remember he said "seamen" and women don't mix?

Rod & Todd were shown in tight shorts and tank tops with moustaches, as mentioned by Patrick.

That said, Krusty and Apu doin' the deed would probably get good ratings.

There've been hints throughout the years about many characters; mostly one of Marge's sisters, the Flanders children, etc... but the only two directly confirmed (in the present) have been Smithers and to my knowledge.



Also, Homer is to die in 2005-- but it'll only be temporary.

One of Marge's sisters wouldn't surprise me.

There was an episode where Bart admitted to Homer that he liked Millhouse as more than a friend. It was played out quickly, so I'm not sure many people picked up on it.

The current issue of "Atlantic Monthly" has an article about this and based on the odds given by a British bookmaking firm, the two top choices are Smithers and Patty. Interestingly enough, one of the episodes of the Simpsons on tv here last night was the one that had the gay pride parade, and one of the floats was a closet with two arms waving and the two voices you heard were Smithers and Patty.

The scene in the episode set 20 in the future where Ned thanks Bart and Ralph for not outing Rod and Tod was pretty good. But what about Milhouse? In one of the early episodes it is mentioned that Milhouse was exhibiting some latent homosexual tendencies.

Smithers can be discounted because he's already "out." Marge's sisters are too obvious. I'd go along with the earlier guess and say it's going to be Moe. There's just something about him.

I don't know what Moe is. There have been tons of things said to indicate he swings both ways. He has said, "I ain't ever said no to a dead girl yet." And he made a comment about there is always a line to register for the sex-offender list.

There has been other stuff hinting that he will do anything, from man to woman to animal.

Except Milhouse had a thing for that girl that ended up in the all-girls school after Bart ratted them out to her father. Remember, it was the episode where they had to see the sex-ed video****Fuzzy Bunny.

Maude is dead, as a result of a pay dispute between the producers and her voice.

All of Phil Hartman's voiced characters are out, Tory Mclure, Lionel Hutz.

Lovejoy is married to Helen. Although it would make an interesting plot line.

And you are right, the Simpsons has really been going downhill since season 6.

Moe: Nah, he's nervous around women, but still goes out with them on occasions. I don't think it's him.

Rev Lovejoy: Married, don't think it's him.

Smithers: As mentioned, already out of the closet to the viewers at least. Not him.

Milhouse: Has had a crush on Lisa for God knows how many years, I don't think he's the one.

Troy McClure: Gone? When did that happen?  Wow!

Krusty: Nope, very busy with women. Very often has dates with the kind you find in magazines from the top shelf...

Selma: Married with Troy, Sideshow Bob, once desperate to have a family. Don't think it's her.

Patty: Never been on a date, or seems interested in doing so. Like Selma she's hot for Mac Gyver... But as one of the sisters' arm was waving from behind a cover in the Gay parade in Springfield once, I think it will have to be her...  Smile

I don't think it's Patty but she seems to have no interest in men. Thier father was a Flight Attendant wasn't he... hmmm...but i don't think she'd come out she'd be too worried that Homer would have something on her.

My vote is for Carl and Lenny. Kinda obvious, ever notice how sensetive they both are to politically correct issues and the fact that they both keep pictures of each other on their desks and in their wallets? I have a picture of my partner in my wallet and another at work.  Big thumbs up

Not to mention the episode when they're talking about the most important person in their lives; Marge for homer and it was Lenny for Carl...

Then again it could be Chief Wiggum as we so rarely see his wife Sarah... What about the other two cops we always see one is named Lou... the other i have no clue, they're always together tho... never know...

Anyone think it could be Nelson? - Remember when he was teasing Bart on the bus about being gay and Lisa said that those that torment others about being gay are "most likely trying to draw attention away from their own blatant homosexuality..." This brings up the other three bullys Dolph, Jimbo and Kearney - maybe they too are trying to hide their blatan sexuality by bulling others...

Some others I thought about:

Comic book guy - need i say more?

We have the Seven Duffs (I can only remember four tho) Surly, Tipsy, Queasy, and um Remorseful? Comeon a whole bunch of small men living together in the woods... hmmm sounds like a bad episode of Will and Grace

Maybe they'll bring back Queenie the chicken (was homers replacement at the power plant for a week or so) the name kind of gives it away though.

I've often wondered about Principal Skinner... Except for that run in with Mrs Kraboppel - I think his mother thinks he's a homosexual... lol

There is Grounds keeper Willy - never seen him with a lady have we?

WAIT! What if it's Itchy and Scratchy! OMG now that would be a funny one... reminds me of that episode of Golden girls where they all are protesting and Rose is talking about the Bear and field mouse living together in peace "but of course they couldn't have kids together or the mice would explode..." Sounds like an I&S episode if i ever heard one...

Maybe Burns will finally come ouot, he does like shopping with Smithers...

Lisa? She's pretty mature for her age she could come out really early stating that it's okay to be gay...

I think the Lovejoys would be a much better and interesting episode.

Finally I will end with the most unlikely: Snowball 2 and Santa's Little Helper

I was actually thinking the same thing...

Anyone remember the episode where homer thinks Bart is gay and so he takes him to the steel contrsuction mill to see the "butch" guys, then it's time for lunch break and they all take off their shirts (all built as hell) and a disco ball drops down and some gay anthem comes on and they all start dancing together... barts says "Cool man!"

I think Bart has just been moved to a front running contender...

A lot of websites on the internet says that the supposed script; Patty is gonna get married to a butch bartender, and that Marge wants equal marriage rights for others, and Homer gets ordained as a minister who presides over the wedding, blah blah blah...

I'm hoping that Groening's team surprises us!

I'd like to see Mayor Quimby handing marriage licenses to gay couples wanting to be wed, so that he himself could get married to his favorite misteres.

I doubt it is any of the four (five including maggie, who is an unlikely choice) main characters. Lisa and Bart have both had crushes on several kids not of the same gender. Bart and the reverends daughter for example. Lisa and the young protest guy who demonstrated ontop of Krusty Burger. (Even homer said he had the bluest eyes he'd ever seen, but that's a different story)

Anyway, the real question is.... When will it be revealed??

Well done to whoever put out this rumour. Certainly has given the program a lot of attention.  Smile
