Actually the case of "homosexual penguins" has been documented many times before and is nothing new.

Living around cats all my life, I can confirm there are homosexual cats as well. As well as cats with male friends, even though they are thought to be extremely territorial.

There are also videos of animals (in wild) attempting to mate with other species, they usually "experiment" in adolescent age.

Not sure what to make of it... well, at least people may change their religious views about it, I'm pretty sure those penguins won't burn in hell

Except for the fact that the penguins live in a zoo...


Couldn't one argue that this is evidence of homosexuality being a product of an unnatural environment?

These are the kind of threads that make somebody's true vision of the world known.

Much work is to be done, but it's getting done!

Homosexual behavior in animals refers to the documented evidence of homosexual, bisexual and transgender behavior in non-human animals. Such behaviors include sex, courtship, affection, pair bonding, and parenting. Homosexual and bisexual behavior are widespread in the animal kingdom: a 1999 review by researcher Bruce Bagemihl shows that homosexual behavior, has been observed in close to 1500 species, ranging from primates to gut worms, and is well documented for 500 of them.

Animal sexual behavior takes many different forms, even within the same species. The motivations for and implications of these behaviors have yet to be fully understood, since most species have yet to be fully studied. According to Bagemihl, "the animal kingdom [does] it with much greater sexual diversity -- including homosexual, bisexual and nonreproductive sex -- than the scientific community and society at large have previously been willing to accept." wiki


No matter what religious dogma may be willing to accept, homosexuality never has and never will be a "sin" against nature.

I'd like to see someone reconcile the nonsense of creationism/id with that.

If one wishes to believe that all is according to god's plan and creation then so is homosexuality.

Can't have it both ways.

How can penguins be homosexual when they all look the same? I don't think they're gay, just "confused".

No Way! If they were really gay they wouldn't all dress the same... SNAP

Is that a species-ist comment?

They probably think we "all look the same" too.

Nope, you're not the only one. There is some serious reaching here thinking the psychology of penguins and humans are anywhere near the same.

Im more amazed at the fact that there are gay penguins.

Most animals function on.."If I can reproduce with it, then it's good enough"

Also interesting that the penguins felt an obligation to take care of an egg that wasn't theirs.

And I think it's more towards the effect that, "Homosexuallity is not that un-natural."

i seriously doubt there are gay penguins

i looked all over for photographic proof that it is true and i cannot find any evidence

therefore i am going to assume this is little more than a fantasy concocted purely to push an Agenda ...

i dont care if your mad at my opinion, show me the evidence

pics or it DID NOT happen!
