We’re here, We’re Queer, We’re Penguins?
Update – The Zoo has come back with a reason for there actions: “We’re simply trying to help save a threatened species, the Humboldt penguin is a bird whose homosexual tendencies are well known to zoologists.”
I am at a loss for words! All I will say is I posted a series a while back on homosexuals on my old blog, and I think this will apply for that. I will definitely keep a check on this.
Berlin – A plan by a German zoo to test the sexual appetites of a group of suspected homosexual penguins has sparked outrage among gay and lesbian groups, who fear zookeepers might force them to turn straight.”All sorts of gay and lesbian associations have been emailing and calling in to protest,” said a spokesperson for the zoo in the north-western city of Bremerhaven on Friday.He said the zoo concluded the penguins might be gay after seeing male penguins trying to mate with other males and trying to hatch offspring out of stones.German media reported that female Swedish penguins would be brought to the zoo to test the theory, but when word got out about the plan, the phones started ringing.”Nobody here is trying to break-up same sex pairs by force,” the zoo’s director Heike Kueck told public broadcaster NDR. “We don’t know if the three male pairs are really gay or just got together because of a lack of females.”
