Why is carl gay
Relationship with each other
Lenny is apparently divorced – in "Bart of War", Carl says that he sang "The Best Is Yet to Come" at Lenny's wedding, although in another episode Lenny punches Carl for giving a bad speech at his wedding. Lenny is a persistent bachelor who has poor luck with women. In "Marge on the Lam", Lenny shaves the legs of a woman who calls him an idiot for not shaving in an upward direction. In "Team Homer", Homer mentions to Moe that both Lenny and Carl are with their mistresses. In "Homer the Smithers" he is seen in the opening scene with his arm around a woman who appears to be his girlfriend. In "Homer Simpson, This Is Your Wife", it's revealed that he had dated a woman in a Woody Woodpecker outfit at a fairground for three months until she left him for the man who cleans the vomit on the roller coaster. Lenny had told Carl that he was married to a beauty queen, and as of the 8th season, Carl had yet to meet Lenny's wife. The episode "In Marge We Trust", it is revealed that Lenny made his Beauty-Queen wife up, and is unmarried.
Despite being shown in the First Church of Springfield, Lenny is a Buddhist — making him, Carl, and Lisa the only three Buddhists in Springfield. Born in Chicago, he is also a war hero and a three-time juror. His grandmother spent 20 years in a Soviet labor camp, hinting that Lenny may have ancestors from the former Soviet Union, or have ancestors who were POWs. During one episode, he is shown to be an adept guitar player. "Homer the Great" reveals Lenny was member number 12 of the Springfield chapter of the Stonecutters secret society. In the episode "Half-Decent Proposal", Lenny is shown to have little regard for his own life: "Quick and pointless, that's the death for me." Another example of his apathy towards salvation is that he shrugs after being pulled from a ladder which would have seen him and Homer to safety. Excluding unnamed background characters, Lenny is one of the few Springfield residents to persistently resist the lure of the Movementarians. Lenny is a member of the Republican Party, as indicated in "Bart-Mangled Banner" (2004) when he reveals his Dole/Kemp '96 American flag tattoo. He is also shown to be a member of the NRA as seen in "The Cartridge Family", although in the episode Sideshow Bob Roberts expresses disdain for conservative talk show host Birch Barlow, proclaiming himself politically correct. His weapon of choice appears to be an AR-15 rifle, which he says "are manufactured for a reason: to take out today's modern super animals like the flying squirrel and the electric eel."
