(Newser) – Baby Stewie was this close to coming out as gay in an episode of Family Guy, but creator Seth MacFarlane says he decided “to keep it vague” because “he’s a 1-year-old,” the New York Daily News reports. “Ultimately, Stewie will be gay or a very unhappy repressed heterosexual,” MacFarlane says in September’s Playboy. “He has a lot of aggression, which comes from confusion and uncertainty about his orientation.”
