‘Simpsons’ Tackles Homersexual Marriage
LOS ANGELES ( First, Homer Simpson learned to respect homosexuals after gay antique dealer John (voiced by John Waters) saved him from a herd of angry reindeer in “Homer’s Phobia.” Then, in “Three Gays of the Condo,” Homer moved to Springfield’s gay neighborhood, moved in with a pair of flamboyant housemates and even enjoyed a same-sex smooch. Homer’s ties to the gay community will get even tighter this coming season.
Over the weekend, fanatics flocked to a panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con convention hoping to get information about the upcoming season of “The Simpsons” and got an earful about the latest scandal to hit Springfield.
“We have a show where, to raise money, Springfield legalizes gay marriage,” producer Al Jean told clamoring fans. “Homer becomes a minister by going on the Internet and filling out a form. A longtime character comes out of the closet, but I’m not saying who.”
Instantly, speculation has centered on the possibility that Waylon Smithers is the most likely candidate for outing, but is Smithers really in the closet? The musical loving, Malibu Stacy collecting, bootlicking Smithers has made his intentions clear to his employer, Montgomery Burns, on numerous occasions.
On the other hand, the show has gone to occasional lengths to obfuscate Smithers’ sexual identity. In “The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular,” Ambassador Henry Mwabwetumba of the Ivory Coast sent in a presumably fake letter asking what the “real deal” with Waylon Smithers was.
After a series of clips of Smithers’ homoerotic exchanges with Mr. Burns, noted actor Troy McClure declared, “As you can see, the real deal with Waylon Smithers is that he’s Mr. Burns’ assistant. He’s in his early 40s, is unmarried, and currently resides in Springfield. Thanks for writing.”
Will this episode find Lenny and Carl moving from platonic life partners to spouses? Will either Patty or Selma decide that they’ll never meet a man who lives up to the standards set by MacGyver? Will Ms. Hoover and Ms. Krabappel find love? Will the Sea Captain return from a long voyage with a new First Mate?
“It’s Homer,” says Matt Groening. We think he’s joking, but you won’t know for sure until “The Simpsons” returns for its 16th season this fall.
