My congartulations to the two dads.
Well, I think this is what homosexuality is for in nature - as an aid to heterosexual success in the survival of the species.
It takes a village to raise a child (a male and female hetero alone would never survive in most environments with a child), and gay people in that village are an asset. This is how most pre-colonial people viewed things in any case.
It figures: a male who is better at female tasks gathers with women and children, and thus the women have male muscle-power to defend the children from enemies or predators.
Not only that, but raids can deplete the stock of women, or battles men. A "gay" gender could thus be indispensible to keep the off-spring alive.

Can two same-sex penguins produce offspring?
I am sure two same-sex parents are capable of being loving and responsible parents. Unfortunately, they cannot reproduce offspring.
