Gay penguins

This is cute - if you remember that they're only trying it to save the species, not for fear of the gay.
I don't think it'll work anyway. As far as I know from documentaries, these birds tend to mate for life.

Also in the comments of the metaquotes post where I found it, somebody mentioned that a couple of gay penguins have been given an egg by the zoo keepers after it was neglected by the het parents.

Homo-parenting : even penguins do it right.

I read in an article that this race of pinguins is known for often developing homo-relationships.
I think this is really the best evidence that homosexuality is not a some weird
human psychological behavior :-)

Yeah, many species hold homosexual relationships, it seems, but it was not actually reported until late, probably because you can be a scientist and homophobic, and because others would problably self-censor themselves knowing that sectarians people might cut your funding if you report facts that are against their faith...

The best thing is there is probably no penguin right-wing demanding the safe return of the egg to a nice heterosexual christian penguin household :)

Only 'cause they can't hold a crayon to make placards, probably...

*imagines penguins protesting with little cardboard signs*

*brain implodes*

Actually, I suspect that only the human race would able to invent such things as racism and homophobia.
