I agree with that. In early episodes Kyle was a slightly "meaner" kid, more prone to swearing - we all remember that bit from "Anal Probe," right? - apparently a little messed up by his parents -"Where's your brother, Kyle? Brush and floss, Kyle! WHERE HAS THAT FINGER BEEN, KYLE??" - and less sympathetic/moral. In "Volcano," Kyle has no qualms whatsoever about shooting cute animals (even when the hunters are making it seem like innocent animals are attacking them), and when Stan tries to explain his hurt feelings about being pushed aside by his uncle, Kyle just farts.
I think Stan's role as "the sensitive one" was far more established in the very earliest episodes than it ever was later on. Conversely, the show hadn't really acquired that moral element that it would eventually come to often have - in early episodes, I'd say there's far more focus on how comically immoral all the characters are, as when Kyle farts to Stan. In the absence of that moral element, we did not really need someone like Kyle to personify that element. They had Stan as the (relatively) sensitive one, and I think that was all they felt they needed, at the time.
Often times, when he does one of his 'gay little speeches', I find myself nodding my head in agreement. He's much better now. He connects me to the show a lot better.
I don't cheer for the title. I cheer for my health.
