This is less "sexualized" than Miss Piggy and Kermit are with Miss Piggy always chasing after Kermit to get married. It's an image of two muppets cuddling. Big deal. It's a romantic image, not a sexualized one. I guess we should ban all references to parents having a relationship in any children's media as well then.
Tell me, what could possibly be harmful from a child seeing this image?
And let's not forget that it's the cover of The New Yorker, not some new promo for Sesame Street or The Muppets directed at children.
