So the survial of that brood of penguins is less important than the fact that they have chosen homosexual relationships. Seems to me that homosexuality was forced on them by the lack of females. How fair is that?

There are so many things wrong here, where to begin?

Will this cause a rift between the animal rights and gay rights factions?

Environmental concerns and the homosexual agenda are strangly at odds in this case. However apparently the homosexual agenda always trumps everything including common sense.

The male penguins are not into "gay sex". What's going on is they are keeping rocks warm.

They would keep eggs warm if there were eggs around.

This is what male penguins do.

Well, if males have all they've been around and living with, what did they expect? They haven't known any thing else. Introduce the females during mating season and see what happens.

I swear these so calle educated people are getting dumber by the second. Those birds are no more homosexual than cattle on a farm.

Ive seen "steers" try to mount horses before. It doesn't mean the steer has some kind of horse fetish, it just means the steer is acting on one of it's most basic instincts.

I love to watch a food fight among the leftist wackos:
Radical enviromentalists v. on-your-face homosexualists
It reminds me of the current controversy over alternative energy sources, such as energy-producing windmills. The enviromentalists want to "save" the environment by installing more of the ugly devices, while the animal-rights nutjobs want to "save" the birds by removing the windmills. Popcorn time.

Gay groups had protested against "the organised and forced harassment through female seductresses" in an open letter to Bremerhaven Mayor Joerg Schulz and called on him to stop the program.

"The female penguins are now being shipped to Guantanamo Bay for use in prisoner interrogations."

"As for the Swedish females - new male penguins have been drafted in to attend to their heterosexual needs."

How do they know they're heterosexual? It appears those heterosexist zookeepers are now trying to force their heterosexual agenda on girl penguins, denying them the opportunity to explore their sexuality. PETA should investigate this.

And, what if those female penguins get pregnant? Will they be given a choice? Where's Planned Penguinhood in all this?

If it were "natural", then the radicals should have no problem with letting females into the pen. However, they know they are pushing a lie. This sickens me.

What if the pengiuns in question are bi-sexual? Is the zoo harming them by removing the female pengiuns? Hmmm?

So, we have an endangered species who are pushed further to the brink of extinction by the absolutely silly protest by a special interest group whose lifestlyle prevents propagation.

Now all we need is for PETA to get involved.

Precisely! Otherwise, they would not be afraid of the penguins 'going straight'.

It nauseates me how these simpering faggots only have to whine to the organs of the world press to get just about anyone to cave in to their B.S.

Gay penguins are an endangered species and they refuse to mate with females...

Sounds like a self-correcting problem... until they start recruiting.

All this because a bunch of weirdos think that their particular mental illness should be protected at all costs.

I'm more and more convinced that there is a finite amount of intelligence in the world and that as the number of people goes up, the amount of per-capita intelligence goes down.

But after protests from gay rights groups, director Heike Kueck said the zoo was abandoning the plan... Gay groups had protested against "the organised and forced harassment through female seductresses" in an open letter to Bremerhaven Mayor Joerg Schulz and called on him to stop the program.


Yes Virginia, there IS a homosexual agenda. The homosexual community opposes ex-gay humans, so we shouldn't be surprised that they'd be against ex-gay penguins, too. This is another example of them stopping or twisting scientific research to suit their agenda.

These people are pathetic.

The zoo, which promotes itself with the slogan "encounters of a special kind",...

Did they adopt this slogan before or after they discovered they had gay penguins?

The homos don't care about that. They just want to somehow justify their own perverted behavior. They can point to the penguins and say, "See! Homosexuality occurs naturally in animals!"

Yeah, right.

"The relationships were obviously too serious," Ms Kueck said of the same-sex penguin couples. Instead of flirting with the opposite sex, they seemed to prefer sitting on the stones, which substitute for the eggs they will never be able to lay.

Sad - we will leave these penguins longing for children they will never have sitting on stones that will never hatch in the name of political correctness.

Actually, that's the approach we seem to have taken with humans who suffer from this disorder. Shout down the ex-gay movement and leave human homosexuals longing for the bond they can never find in the name of political correctness.

Shalom.
