At least with cattle, it’s recognized as a treatable disorder.

Yes.

I used to have two Boston Terriers. Brothers. One was big and boisterous and all boy. The other was a skinny, prancing, flaming, d!ck l!ck!ng homosexual dog fagot. And he tried to hump anything whenever he had the chance - even his own brother. He was a perv, even by dog standards.

Only the NYT would take up space with this garbage to try and justify what is perverted and unnatural. NO, it is NOT normal for HUMANS or ANIMALS to be “gay”.

Common sense proves the parts just don’t fit and procreation would be hindered ... ..

“Now let me tell you something, Streebeck. There are two things that clearly differentiate the human species from animals. One, we use cutlery. Two, we’re capable of controlling our sexual urges. Now, you might be an exception, but don’t drag me down into your private Hell.”

Dan Aykroyd as Sgt. Joe Friday from the movie “Dragnet”.

Oslo Natural History Museum Opens ‘Homosexual’ Animal Exhibit
October 19, 2006 – The Natural History Museum in Oslo, Norway, has just opened up an exhibit supposedly showing various examples of homosexual animals. The leader of this exhibit, “Against Nature” is Geir Soeli who told reporters, “Homosexuality has been observed for more than 1500 animal species, and is well documented for 500 of them.” Soeli claims: “The sexual urge is strong in all animals … It’s a part of life, it’s fun to have sex.” A statement at the exhibit says: “We may have opinions on a lot of things, but one thing is clear – homosexuality is found throughout the animal kingdom, it is not against nature.”

One commenter on the conservative Free Republic web site scoffed at the idea that homosexuality should be considered normal if animals engage in sodomy. He noted how unwise it is to justify homosexuality for humans simply because such activities may be practiced by animals.

He wrote: “Animals engage in the following:
•“Kill and eat members of their species, that is, they are often cannibals;
•“Kill and eat some of their offspring, that is, they commit cannibalistic infanticide;
•“Compete with other males for the opportunity to have sex with a particular female, often killing or debilitating the rival;
•“Fight with and exile or kill the ‘owner’ of a ‘harem,’ kill his ‘children,’ and then raise other children with the females in the harem (the females show no ‘loyalty’ to their former ‘husband’ and blithely have sex with the new guy).
•“Discriminate against and kill ‘aliens’ to their particular territory or tribe;
•“Often have sex with some of their offspring;
•“Often have sex with relatives and near-relatives (from a human perspective, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, grandparents, etc.), in other words, they commit incest;
•“Let the males just about always get their way (e.g., eat first, win any spats),
•“Often allow large groups of males to have sex with a female, even leaving her near-dead or even dead, that is, they engage in ‘gang rape;’ and
•“Often allow one male to hog all the females in a given area, driving away his ‘sons’ and his ‘friends’ who would like a little sexual ‘pleasure’ with the ‘girls.’
“If we arbitrarily pick which animal behaviors to value, then any such study from which we get insights for human behavior is a complete waste of time.”

“The Animal Homosexuality Myth,” published by the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) debunks the claim that “homosexual” animals truly exist. Author Luiz Sergi Solimeo notes: “If seemingly ‘homosexual’ acts among animals are in accordance with animal nature, then parental killing of offspring and intra-species devouring are also in accordance with animal nature. Bring man into the equation complicates things further. Are we to conclude that filicide and cannibalism are according to human nature.”

Animals commit rape, murder, incest, and cross species “mating”. They also eat their own poop.

The NYet Times thinks that civilization and rising above animal instincts is overrated.

My dog really likes his pillow, if you catch my drift. What’s the slang term for that lifestyle?

Men should be able to marry pillows if they want. Who's to judge?

According to the article, the female birds hatch eggs and care for the young soooooo a male was in there somewhere. I am guessing they are “sisters” and the male was killed. You see a lot of mounting on farms by animals. It is a dominant gesture. We had neutered males dogs together in pens and they would take turns licking each others privates. We have one heeler who has perfected humping his own belly/chest. Pretty funny to see too.

Is ram behaviour evidence of “natural” homosexuality?

http://www.mygenes.co.nz/rams.htm

Conclusions:

1. The tests for homosexuality are rather dubious
2. Bisexuality is common - exclusive homosexuality seems rare
3. The documented rate is about 1%
4. Environment has a large effect.

Dr. Jack Calhoun conducted research at NIH with Norwegian white rats. His study was on population dynamics. He noticed that as the population became greater there was a dramatic increase in deviant sexual behavior. His research has been used and abused for many years. I knew Dr. Calhoun and he made no social interpretation for the deviant behavior.

Please be kind to this man when you post about about him. He is long gone but his wife may still be living.
