Another Beloved Right-Wing Celebrity Viciously Outed As Gay By Angry Leftist
— Ace

Stewie Griffin, outed by his leftist creator as having a "conflicted sexuality" in which his shame of homosexuality drives him towards rage. And world domination.

Via The Malcontent, which is psyched to count Stewie as a fellow gay right-winger.

Oh well. We still have Lois.

What is it about the Family Guy? I have a love-hate relationship with it. Well, a love-indifference relationship. I don't watch it much. On one hand, the gag-type jokes -- mainly in those excrescent flashbacks -- are forced, lazy, dumb, derivative, and not funny.

On the other hand, the character-driven parts of it can be very funny. I've heard Stewie spit out a musty Victorian insults a hundred times, but I still giggle when he calls someone an "Applejohn," whatever the hell that is.

And on one hand, Seth MacFarlane too self-consciously "pushes the envelope," often resulting in "outrageous" moments that don't shock so much as they annoy. When someone's obviously, studiously attempting to shock you -- like Madonna -- it feels far less like an entertainer trying to please you and more like an entertainer trying to please himself over how "wicked" and outre he is.

And on the other hand, sometimes he really does push the envelope so far you enjoy the giddy thrill of disbelief that yeah, he went there, or that he managed to get that past Standards & Practices.

How sick is this?

Oh, I guess it has to be said that The Simpsons has been implying that Bart's gay for years. Homer too, I guess, though his gay moments really don't seem to imply he's gay so much as he's stupid and capricious. I think he just forgets he's heterosexual from time to time.

Bart gay???  Rod & Todd sure, Milhouse maybe, but Bart?

2 Family Guy is written by manatees, who cares.

3 and Everyone has AIDS too.

I also think FG is written by manatees, but what makes stewie rightwing?  Taking over the world has an appeal to certain left of center ideologies.

4 Clearly Peter Griffin and The Chicken are in love.

Hey, I like chicks, man.  Hot chicks like Taylor Hanson.

6 South Park was spot-on in its parody of FG.  The flashbacks and other cheap laughs are dumb.  It's also gone for too many stupid political jokes since it came back on the air.  But I can't help but laugh at many of the Brian/Stewie jokes.   I'll usually watch a few minutes of it when I see it's on.

You people disgusts me. Watching the new-day communist manifesto heathen crap (ok, just maybe a cartoon with lack of plot, morales, character development, or creativity, but pretty close). Only brak is on the way to eternal salvation.

Which leaves me one question: What Would Brian Boitano Do?

(Hint: probably kick an arse or two... starting with Ace)

...but what makes stewie rightwing? 

He's gay.

9 The Stewie/Brian "novel-baiting" scenes are some of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV. 

And they're usually surrounded by weapons-grade "meh".

Posted by: tachyonshuggy at January 31, 2008 02:18 PM (Lz6uE)


You guys know the weird connections MacFarlane has with 9/11, right? The episode that's never aired anymore and his seat on Flight 93? Maybe, he's lost his mind since then. I do normally watch it, though. Even with the heavy handed anti-GOP bias. At least South Park is fair.

Oh, and leave it to the Beloved Troll to fall back on the standard DNC talking point; "you're gay".

Creepy, over-educated accent?

"You guys know the weird connections MacFarlane has with 9/11, right? The episode that's never aired anymore and his seat on Flight 93?"

Ummm, no.

There's a scene where Brian and Stewie are at the kitchen table and Brian demands Stewie explain to him how the Flat Tax doesn't favor the rich.  Without waiting for an answer Brian uses a fork and knife to cut Stewie's favorite teddy-bear's head off as if to eat it.

I guess that kinda makes Stewie a rightie.

14 McFarlane was scheduled to be on Flight 93 (or one of the flights) but got there too late to make the plane.

His ticket went to someone else, presumably.

Posted by: Doc Brown at January 31, 2008 02:40 PM (SXBHu)

15 Doc Brown, I think it was actually one of the flights out of Logan Airport in Boston that MacFarlane was supposed to be on. If I recall the story correctly he woke up late that morning, causing him to miss the flight

Posted by: Shivv at January 31, 2008 02:46 PM (ZiA5L)


MacFarlane was *suppose* to be on Flt 93. Yeah, and I'm a chinese jet pilot named Paco. Which leads to another question: MacFarlane-gate?

MacFarlane lied while people died

17 I second the love-hate relationship with FG.  22 minutes of either hit and miss, or bleh with 4 min of gold per episode.

18 So, was Janet his beard?

Posted by: Techie at January 31, 2008 03:12 PM (AV8Z6)

19 Family Guy is ok.  Good for a laugh though most of its crap is as lazy as they say it is.  Definitely have to sit through ten groaners before you get to a really funny part.

If you actually wanted to use your brain while laughing it's probably not for you.  Certainly doesn't hold a candle to the supernova of South Park.

Oh, and I want to note that Bart Simpson's voice talent is actually the biggest Scientologist in the world.  She gave then ten million dollars last year.  To help people.  Not ten million hot pockets for Ethiopia.  Ten million dollars for e-meters.  Whatever.

20 The episode where Peter buys a wax statue of Gwenneth Paltrow making out with Harriet Tubman was one of the funniest things I have ever seen.  I still chuckle when I think about it.

21 I'm surprised no one has mentioned Robot Chicken yet.

Posted by: Maetenloch at January 31, 2008 03:49 PM (HHAbw)

22 I kinda resent all the "FG" references as gay. You guys said you wouldn't tell if I gave the reach around

Posted by: Frank G at January 31, 2008 04:35 PM (Ydps9)

23 Robot Chicken? I mentioned him in post #5:

Clearly Peter Griffin and The Chicken are in love.

Posted by: ricpic at January 31, 2008 04:43 PM (+++MJ)


Peter Griffin is the spitting image of my dad who is married to a woman called Lois so the show has an added layer of humour to me.

I really enjoyed the first 3 seasons of Family Guy, back in the good old days when Stewie was out to take over the world and put an end to that infernal woman's gynocracy, but it was never quite the same after the cancellation.  Season 4 was okay, but I lost interest towards the end and quit watching.  I did enjoy the recent Star Wars knock-off, Blue Harvest.

26 I really like Robot Chicken. There are some lame skits, to be sure, what sketch-type comedy show doesn't? At least most of the bits are 30 seconds are less, and they hit more than miss. The animations are very good, and they do get many celebrities to do voices. And besides a few mild "Bushis-stupid" jokes, it's not very political at all.

Posted by: Dr. Remulak at January 31, 2008 06:32 PM (aJ3z3)


Come on.  The Simpson's already have Smithers as a pretty much open gay guy and have Lenny and Carl as the closeted gay couple.  Why would they need Bart and Homer.

Posted by: polynikes at February 01, 2008 05:21 AM (m2CN7)

28 Why watch this show when you can watch South Park, you know, a show that actually is good?

Posted by: Darksbane at February 01, 2008 05:55 AM (MZ7XP)

29 They should do an episode where Bart outs himself as a Scientologist, and then gets eaten by Thetans.
