Baby Humboldt penguin has two daddies!

Jun 8, 2009 Full story: lotusopening.blogspot.com 58

Z and Vielpunkt, two male Humboldt penguins at Germany's Bremerhaven Zoo, are the proud new parents of a healthy penguin chick.

"Another couple threw the egg out of their batch. We picked it up and put it in the nest of the gay penguins," veterinarian Joachim Schöne told the German newspaper Bild of the pair's entry into parenthood. Z and Vielpunkt faithfully cared for their adopted egg for more than a month; in late April it hatched. Since then, they've been taking care of their chick around the clock; it's still too young to feed itself, so the dads feed him fish mash, Schöne explained.

"Since the chick arrived, they have been behaving just as you would expect a heterosexual couple to do," the zoo said in a statement.

The Bremerhaven Zoo's same-sex penguin couples (there are three such pairs in residence there, all males) first made news back in 2005,....

A bisexual penguin. I've heard it all. You keep grabbing at strws to promote your agenda. The next thing we'll hear about is a Zebra who likes to have sex with a two trunked elephant of the same sex!

On parents who won't accept the homosexuality of their children: "I'd like to slap the bastards. I'd like to give 'em a slap. Pleeese. Come on! If your child comes to you and tells you this and you really have a problem with it and it becomes a real issue, you really don't deserve to call yourself a parent. "

Homosexuality is not a choice. If it is? then your choice is in heterosexuality. BTW, It is utmost pathetic attempt as a human being to use your child to further your own agenda. That is sick. Your choices will have a harmful affect on your child in the future. What if he ran into people who are different? You are just as outdated as your views.

Prove to me that it's not a choice. Prove to me that the natural order of humankind is not to be attracted to the opposite sex. Where is your genetic proof?

Where is your genetic proof that "heterosexuality" is not a choice as well... Heterosexuality is just a norm. To you anything that deviates away from this "norm" is what you refer as sinful. Silly, the Bible is extremely sexist. If you are going to use the Bible to bash others, you need to reflect on yourself with what the good book says. Follow everything and practice what you preach. BTW!!! The bible is not a science book, its a fictional book with "myths" like every other religion that has their stories.

Homosexuality occurs very often in the animal kingdom. There have been many accounts of animals actually forming life-long and monogamous relationships with members of the same-sex.

Sheila. First, let’s look at rather or not homosexuality is a choice form a logic stand point. Would you ever choose to become something that is hated by so many, commonly discriminated against or even being disowned by your family? Would you choose to be something that is deemed by so many to be deviant and a sin? But, let’s say it is; which then makes sexuality a choice. So, did you choose to be straight?

Now, let’s look at it from a scientific stand point. There has been much evidence pointing to a biological. It has been shown that homosexuals are born with slightly larger hypothalamus. In homosexual men, there is a concordance rate of 52% for MZ twins, 22% for same sex DZ twins, 9% for non-twin male siblings, and 11% for adopted brothers. Which, having such a high rate of homosexuality in identical twins (MZ) and so low for adopted brothers and non-twin male siblings demonstrate a level of heritability.

Now, let me ask you this; what empirically based evidence do you have that homosexuality is a choice?

Oh my God! Queer Penguins! The End is near!

Kill the Penguins, Kill them all, the virus is spreading....

With all the real evils in the world; a pair of male pengiuns that have bonded is pretty low on the crisis scale.

BTW anyone know which is the "wife"? They all look the same anyway.

The wife is the one who signs *Mrs* on the marriage license. You'll have to hide and watch to find out ;P

Yikes! Calm down, sweetcheeks! Its a choice for 66% of the population of the planet. 66% of the population of the planet is bisexual and can switch back and forth between guys and gals; no problem.

It's funny, how you spout your lies, but when others show you what they find all you can think up is "what a lie." You need to check yourself, missy.

whwew is *your* genetic proof *you* are right

People have repeatedly outlined the current state of genetic research in other threads and you refuse to accept what data there is.

That beung the case, the onus is on you to prove that your son made a *free* choice to be gay

otherwise you are displayed for all the world to see as a vile and despicable sub human creature
