If six pages of a not-naked Heidi Pratt were not enough reasons to go out and grab the September issue of Playboy, here’s another incentive: Elsewhere in the lad mag, ‘Family Guy‘ mastermind Seth MacFarlane settles one of his show’s worst/best kept secrets: Stewie Griffin is gay.
MacFarlane told Playboy (via Daily News) all about an episode they brought all the way to the script phase where the 1-year-old homicidal baby comes out.
“It had to do with the harassment he took from other kids at school. He ends up going back in time to prevent a passage in Leviticus from being written: ‘Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is an abomination.’”
In the end, the show’s writers decided to “keep it vague” because of the tot’s age.
“Ultimately, Stewie will be gay or a very unhappy repressed heterosexual. It also explains why he’s so hellbent on killing [his mother, Lois] and taking over the world: He has a lot of aggression, which comes from confusion and uncertainty about his orientation.”
Also explained in the upcoming season: we’ll finally find out why Protestant Lois seems to have a Jewish accent.
MacFarlane was more coy about Stewie’s sexual preference in a February 2008 interview in Advocate, the gay lifestyle mag.
“We all feel that Stewie is almost certainly gay, and he’s in the process of figuring it out for himself. We haven’t ever really locked into it because we get a lot of good jokes from both sides, but we treat him oftentimes as if we were writing a gay character.”
An infant that knows he’s gay — totally believable.
