Mr. Ratburn Comes Out and Gets Married!

On the 22nd season premiere of Arthur we have an unknown revelation come forward, and out. The beloved teacher of the series Mr. Ratburn gets married to another man that is later shown at the end of the episode. No mention of gay marriage but the more than obvious visuals are present. It is a large step considering back in 2005 an episode of Arthur spin-off Postcards from Buster was banned from airing on PBS after then-Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings criticized it for daring to depict a lesbian couple.
