The problem with ‘gay’ penguins…
Homosexuals around the world have been using the apparent phenomenon of same-sex penguin parings as proof that homosexual acts are natural and so must be normal among humans too.
What a shock, then, that in San Francisco Zoo, Harry has left Pepper, his ‘gay partner’ of the past six years, for the newly widowed Linda.
The Pink News reported in 2005 that Silo and Roy, New York’s famous ‘gay’ chinstrap penguins split after they had “been living together as husband and husband for the past six years.”
The pair had successfully hatched and raised an adopted chick, and “inspired six other gay penguin couples at New York’s Central Park Zoo”.
“However, when Scrappy, a single female arrived from Sea World Zoo in San Diego, Silo’s eye went wondering and he moved out of his and Roy’s nest and moved in with Scrappy.”
As it looks like penguins get the six year itch, there is still hope for the lady penguins at Bremerhaven Zoo where staff have tried to persuade Six Point and Slash to mate with some Swedish birds, so far unsuccessfully.
Bizarrely, some homosexual activists protested about the introduction of the females. I guess they are keen to perpetuate the myth that homosexuality is a fixed trait.
Edinburgh Zoo, famous for its penguin parade which I saw on visits as a schoolboy, has similarly lonely and/or confused birds.
The Pink News explains: “Zookeepers believe a shortage of female birds is making them lonely, causing them to pair off.
Head penguin keeper Roslin Talbot told the Scottish Daily Record: “They have sometimes tried to physically mate with each other – not very successfully.
“But mainly, they sit together in pairs and display to one another.
“If we had four male king penguins and four female king penguins, this wouldn’t be happening. But this year we have just two females, because older females have died.”
We are well aware that human homosexuals think they are entitled to rear children without forming a relationship that makes it possible and the same has happened in China’s ‘Polar Land‘ in Harbin, where a pair of three-year-old male penguins has been stealing eggs from other nests in an apparent attempt to become fathers.
“The deception however was noticed by the other penguins and the couple were soon ostracised from the group.”
If we can learn anything from penguins then surely it is that homosexual desires may be overcome in time and/or when the right chick comes along.
By the way, Silo and Roy from New York Zoo inspired the propaganda book aimed at children, And Tango Makes Three. My guess is that the publishers won’t be updating it in light of Silo becoming straight.
