Stewie (Sorta) Comes Out On A Very Special 'Family Guy' Thanksgiving Episode: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.42.21 PM

Brace yourself, America. It looks like Stewie is officially gay!

At the end of a typically odd Family Guy episode which aired Sunday, the sassy baby with the posh accent seemed to admit what most had assumed over the course of the show's 13 seasons. It all went down as he was filling in as host of the Griffin's Thanksgiving dinner due to Peter's absence on an epically weird find-a-turkey expedition. Stewie lifted a glass to give a toast saying, “I wasn’t planning on doing this today, but when I look around at all these open, loving faces of friends and family, I’m comfortable enough to finally say I am a proud, unashamed, active—” Just then, Peter arrives with the turkey, interrupting his somewhat unsurprising confession....though maybe Stewie was going to pull a Jodie Foster and use the similar setup to say that he's single.

Stewie's sexuality has always been suspect, so much so that in 2009 his creator Seth McFarlane said in an interview with Playboy that the character was gay, though he had never directly stated it on the show. Of course, there's been plenty of gay moments for Stewie, some which were compiled last year on YouTube for easy viewing.

Seth MacFarlane Sounds Off on Prop 8, Transgender Controversy

Details posts an interview with Seth MacFarlane which appears in its new issue due August 10. MacFarlane touches on a variety of topics, including Proposition 8 and the show's transgender controversy.

SethMacFarlane_VArticle Details: Family Guy tackled gay marriage in its fourth season—two years before Prop 8.

Seth MacFarlane: The ridiculous thing about something like Prop 8 is that it will be overturned. They put something like $40 million into that campaign, and they might as well have just bet all that money on the Red Sox. It's wasted money because that civil-rights battle will be won eventually. They'll just have to sulk in a corner and accept the fact that gays will be able to marry each other. Every civil-rights conflict—black people, women—comes to an end in the right way.

Details: You predicted that another episode—about a transgendered character—would make the LGBT community happy. It didn't.

Seth MacFarlane: That surprised me. I don't meet a lot of stupid homosexuals. They seem to be a pretty smart bunch. But it seemed that they were not picking up on the fact that it was a very sympathetic portrayal of a transsexual character.

Details: Maybe the fact that Brian barfs his guts out when he realizes he's had sex with a transsexual threw them off.

Seth MacFarlane: Hey, we're still Family Guy.We're not suddenly going to become 7th Heaven. Actually, I guess on 7th Heaven they would probably burn the transsexual at the stake. Let me think of another example. We're not Mr. Belvedere. Look, Brian happens to be a heterosexual character, as I am. If I found out that I had slept with a transsexual, I might throw up in the same way that a gay guy looks at a vagina and goes, "Oh, my God, that's disgusting." It's just the way we're biologically wired. They should give that another look.
