Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has outed baby Stewie.

In an interview with Playboy, MacFarlane reveals that a ditched script went beyond hinting at Stewie Griffin's sexuality.

“We had an episode that went all the way to the script phase in which Stewie does come out,” said MacFarlane.

“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.' But we decided it's better to keep it vague, which makes more sense because he's a 1-year-old.”

MacFarlane goes on to talk about the pivotal role sexuality plays in Stewie's life.

“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.”

In an episode from the animated series' seventh season, Peter Griffin, Stewie's father, turns gay after participating in a medical experiment. Although the family is crushed when Peter leaves Lois for a man, they quickly realize the most important thing is that Peter is happy.
