This past week, two stories about gay animals have been going viral: Gay Penguins and Gay Lions!
The first story that went viral last week was about the cute gay penguins from Berlin Zoo. Their names are Stan and Olli and they had zero interest in the female penguins. As time passed the zoo workers realized that these penguins just wanted to be together.
‘They’re gay, as far as we know,’ Berlin Zoo spokeswoman Christiane Reiss told The Local. ‘They never bred. And when it came to courtship, they only mated with one another.’ Everyone involved was even kind enough to move them to the Hamburg Zoo, so they could live together in peace.
The second story that broke was the gay lions and much like the penguins, they had no interest in their female counterparts. The photographer who took the images of the lions explained,
“Only one lioness was seen in the center of the concession where the male lions were and the lions showed no interest in the lioness. It is the first time I have seen homosexual behavior in lions, but when reading about it upon my return, it is not that uncommon.”
Of course this is not that uncommon because homosexuality is a natural thing! I am just wondering if right wing conservatives think that the zoo workers should treat these animals differently? If a zoo keeper thinks homosexuality is a sin, does that legally give he/she the right to refuse care to the animals? Hardly!
It would also be great to hear them explain how these animals chose to be gay!?! But, that won’t happen because there is no explanation needed. I just wanted to say thank you to Stan and Olli for the obvious (but nice) reminder that being gay is natural. I would like to think it is nature’s way of saying “FUCK YOU” to all these right wing conservatives and to these Religious Freedom Bills!
