This is substantially the same as the section in Homosexuality. Let's not maintain two versions of the same info.

Either delete this article, or use it as a template for the big article. --Ed Poor Talk 17:37, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

this seems like an essay rather than an entry

It takes a position and argues for it, rather than simply laying out facts, that is essay territory isn't it? --CJHallock 22:50, 9 June 2009 (EDT)


According to the article on Homosexuality, it is a "sexual desire or behavior directed toward a person or persons of one's own sex." Following this definition, it wouldn't really matter what some people say in the quotes in this article. Homosexuality, as in sexual desire towards individuals of the same sex, has been observed and exists among animals. In view of this fact, why is the article called "Homosexality in animals myth"? Crucialwood 12:01, 19 July 2009 (EDT)

I quite agree with Crucialwood. Homosexuality (broadly defined to include "homosexual behavior") clearly exists in animals; that is beyond serious dispute, and the article should not have "myth" in the title. Incidentally, I seem to recall that this issue originally arose because of claims that homosexuality was "unnatural." By demonstrating that homosexual behavior did exist in nature, people intended to show that homosexuality was in fact natural, at least in the sense of "appearing in nature." That said, I agree with the article's position that this issue is largely irrelevant to discussions of the morality of homosexuality; many things are "natural" in this sense (including infanticide) but not moral. I think this whole article could be deleted, or perhaps reduced to a few sentences in the Homosexuality article, but obviously I do not want to take such action without further discussion.

Unless you two are "animal mind readers", you are engaging in speculation at best. Conservative 01:51, 10 September 2011 (EDT)

If it is possible for a penguin to be an ex-homosexual, then wouldn't it logically follow that it's possible for a penguin to be a homosexual? However, I think it is more likely that the penguin never was gay in the first place. After all, I've never seen a penguin support group, and I can't really picture penguins turning from their ways in fear of going to hell. Do penguins even go to heaven or hell anyway? I don't think so. I thought only humans had souls, and therefore only humans can go to heaven or hell. But that's besides the point. So it seems far more likely the penguin never was gay than that he's an ex-gay. Gregkochuconn 12:30, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

I posted this in March and never received a response. It should really be addressed. Gregkochuconn 22:54, 11 October 2012 (EDT)
Penguin support group? Yep. Haven't you seen those thousands of male penguins, each with an egg between his legs keeping it warm, while mother is off on a season-long hens' night terrifying the fish? Mate - That is a support group! AlanE 23:31, 11 October 2012 (EDT)
Come to think of it - I seem to remember that they balance the egg on the top of a foot, keeping it off the frozen ground. I wonder what they talk about. It's the Antarctic, so its probably rugby or cricket or some other Liberal subject. AlanE 00:09, 12 October 2012 (EDT)
