You do know that a bioethicist does not necessarily have a medical degree of any sort. These professionals may have dabbled in a few biology classes, but they are not medical professionals. Nor are they research scientists.<quoted text>
"Although homosexual behavior is very common in the animal world, it seems to be very uncommon that individual animals have a long-lasting predisposition to engage in such behavior to the exclusion of heterosexual activities. Thus, a homosexual orientation, if one can speak of such thing in animals, seems to be a rarity." Simon Levay
BTW Rose, Simon Levay is a HIGHLY regarded scientist. He is also HOMOSEXUAL.
"Properly speaking, homosexuality does not exist among animals.... For reasons of survival, the reproductive instinct among animals is always directed towards an individual of the opposite sex. Therefore, an animal can never be homosexual as such. Nevertheless, the interaction of other instincts (particularly dominance) can result in behavior that appears to be homosexual. Such behavior cannot be equated with an animal homosexuality. All it means is that animal sexual behavior encompasses aspects beyond that of reproduction."-, Professor of Bioethics at the University of Navarre, Spain
BTW Rose, those lovely gay penguins in San Francisco- they broke up as soon as a female became available. Harry dumped poor Pepper as soon as Linda became available.
Dr. Antonio Pardo gave his OPINION abut the sexual behavior of animals.
But his comments cannot ne taken as proven science.
