For those who are tired of the never-ending torrent of negativity from our news, this heartwarming story is for you:
Ohh my fucking good the thread title shortening:
That thread title was more than enough to brighten my day.
Crying because I just found out that penguins can be GAY!
Wasn't this an entire episode of parks and rec?
I wonder how, for lack of a better term, "gay" these penguins are. Like do they actually try to copulate or is it just a pair of male penguins who spend a lot of time together and have taken it upon themselves to raise an abandoned chick.
Googling "homosexuality in animals" turned up results that I wasn't looking for but should have expected.
This put me even further in the dumps because it made me realize even a couple of dumbass gay penguins can find love but I can't ;~;
I'm sick of them putting chemicals in the water that turn the friggin.... penguins gay???
Yes, they do. And it's not particularly unique to them, homosexuality is pretty common in the animal kingdom. Penguins are somewhat unusual because they have been reported indulging in other behaviour such paedophilia and necrophilia as far back as the early 1900s, such as in Levick's accounts of the Adelie penguins at Cape Adare.
Today I learned that gay animals are total freaks, with monkeys fondling each other's balls and whatnot. The Abrahamic religions really did ruin the fun for us humans.
So what you're saying is penguins are degenerates
Homosexuality in animals isn't that uncommon, especially in birds. Penguins are absolute freaks though
Penguins can be gay AND have waifus? New favorite animal!
It's more to do with a lot of societies rejecting homosexual behavior on a cultural level. Religion is just a convenient justification.
