Shocker: We're probably not the only animals to utilize our bodies' possibilities

by Jeremy Hooper

2547366-SmEvery so often, an article pops up suggesting what seems fairly obvious to us: That some bird and the bees are just as into the homo-sex as we humans. Here's another one:

Homosexuality Common in the Wild, Scientists Say [Live Science via Fox News]

Your thoughts

I've known about these cases of homosexuality in nature for a little while now, but it is nice to see a major news organization give the issue more visibility. I think that homosexuality in nature is a very powerful response to those who contend that being gay is a choice. How can animals make a choice like that? They don't have that capacity.

Even the Faux News Network can no longer deny the fact that homosexuality is natural, ordinary and common.

At least they still maintain their bias against the science of global warming! Some things are more resistant to change - and if they all did at once, we would probably all shit ourselves.

Another thing the article does is point out that homophobia is unnatural: 'One thing that does seem to be exclusive to humans is homophobia.
"It's a very interesting question as to why anybody ever cares," Mann said. "There are different theories about why people find it threatening.'

Intrinsic homophobia must therefore be taught, and people can be taught not to be homophobic. Ex-phob camps?
