Bugs Bunny

Bugs Bunny is most famous Looney Tune from the classic era of animation. He is often hunted by Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam or Daffy Duck, all of whom fail to capture the rabbit. Bug usually resorts to several tricks to escape danger, usually bending the laws of physics to do so.

Bugs isn’t above gender bending either.

His crossdressing and occasional kissing of male enemies has some suspecting his burrow isn’t the only rabbit hole he’s going in.

Why He Isn’t Gay

Bugs Bunny is an example of a Trickster, a character found in myths across the world and recognized by psychologist Carl Jung. The character is a cultural hero that makes good things happen by breaking the rules of societies. Many non-Christian cultures celebrate these figure for calling into question the rules of society.

In addition, Bug Bunny’s one weakness is female animatronic robots. Several times in cartoons he is tempted and nearly caught when he mistakes the robot for the real thing.


Peppermint Patty & Marcie

Peppermint Patty and Marcie are tow characters from the Peanuts strip that close friends. Some think they are more than friends.

Peppermint Patty is a tomboy with a bad school record and an overaggressive personality. Her butchness seems confirmed by Marcie, who refers to Peppermint Patty as “Sir”. It’s easy to imagine who wears the pants in le**ian duo.

“She’s totally giving you a sign, blockhead!”

Why They Are Not Gay

Both Peppermint Patty and Marcie have professed a love for Charlie Brown. Peppermint Patty drops hints all the time, while Marcie once admitted her love for “Charles”, even saying she would like to marry him.

In fact, if Charlie Brown weren’t such a blockhead he could totally hook up a ménage à trois.
