Zoo tempts gay penguins to go straight

Recommended Posts

Foub    0

Who says that homosexuality doesn't occur in nature? More proof that the religious right don't know what they're talking about, yet again.

A German zoo has imported four female penguins from Sweden in an effort to tempt its gay penguins to go straight.

The four Swedish females were dispatched to the Bremerhaven Zoo in Bremen after it was found that three of the zoo's five penguin pairs were homosexual.

Keepers at the zoo ordered DNA tests to be carried out on the penguins after they had been mating for years without producing any chicks.

It was only then they realised that six of the birds were living in homosexual partnerships.

Director Heike Kueck said that the zoo hoped to see some baby penguins in the coming months.

She said that the birds had been mating for years and one couple even adopted a stone that they protected like an egg.

Kueck said that the project has the support of the European Endangered Species Programme because the penguins, which are native to South America, are an endangered species.

A biologist will be on hand to monitor the experiment.

But introducing the Bremerhaven penguins to their new Swedish friends may not be as successful as hoped after earlier experiments revealed great difficulties in separating homosexual couples.

In case they show no interest, the zoo has also flown in two new male penguins "so that the ladies don't miss out altogether", Kueck added.

The results of this experiment will be a nice piece of evidence about whether being homosexual is a choice or biological.

There is this section which will cast some doubt on the choice aspect.;

Maybe they should find a Fundamentalist Penguin and he can tell them about Penguin Hell.

And then they could join one of those ex-gay Penguin groups who go around saying how happy they are that Jesus has saved them from a life of sin... :)

this already proves that gayness is not choice.

conservatives make the claim that animals cannot make choices or think on higher levels in order to defend animal testing and other inhumane activities.

the fact that they are gay and since they cannot make choices it proves that you cant choose to be gay.

now the question is

what do you people care about more? inhumane treatement of animals or inhumane treatment of gays? you cant have your cake and eat it too.
