The Shenanigans of Gay Penguins

2 Dec

Three things you should know:48pei9xb_large

1. I LOVE penguins. 
2. I LOVE gay penguins.
3. This story is both hilarious and adorable:

In China, there’s this gay penguin couple living at a zoo. They recently had to be segregated from the rest of the penguins because they kept STEALING eggs from the straight penguins:

“Keepers have segregated the couple after they caught them trying to trick straight birds into parting with their offspring by placing round stones at their feet and then running off with an egg.”

“One of the responsibilities of being a male adult is looking after the eggs. Despite this being a biological impossibility for this couple, the natural desire is still there,” explained a keeper.”

Zoo officials explained that this isn’t discrimination or homophobia, it’s just a safety precaution because who knows what those gay penguins will do once the eggs hatch.

Full story here.

I think all homophobia and prejudice should disappear right now just because of these penguins.
