| Peppermint Patty
| Character Information
Patricia "Peppermint Patty" Reichart is a character in the Peanuts comic strip.
When Marge suggested a family outing, Bart interpreted it to mean sexually, and said he'd start, exclaiming " Lisa's gay!". Lisa responded, sarcastically, that she wouldn't want to be gay like her heroes Billie Jean King, Susan Sontag, Sappho of Lesbos, and she suspects, Peppermint Patty.
Behind the Laughter
Peppermint Patty's tomboyish behavior and close friendship with Marcie have led to speculation among some Peanuts fans that the two are lesbians in a romantic relationship. However, both girls have long-standing crushes on Charlie Brown.
