Gay fauna and flora

30 August 2012, 10:16

This is in response to Youngster’s ridiculous ‘copy & paste’ article in which he (and the original authors) make some absurd claims.

“Homosexual behaviour is natural in the animal and plant kingdoms...”  Sorry, what?  Bonking bananas!  Did I hear right?  Let’s analyse this.

Youngster (Cam) states:  “Joan Roughgarden, a professor of biology at Stanford University who has done extensive research on homosexual behaviour in the animal kingdom explains that gayness is a necessary side effect of getting along.” – A ‘necessary side effect’?  Seriously?

The bigger question is why would a professor dedicate her entire life to the homosexual agenda?

A quick Google of one miss Joan Roughgarden reveals a transsexual who was born, John Roughgarden, attended ‘her’ first gay pride march in 1997 and who lives in the world’s gay capital – San Francisco.  I suppose if we’re going to entertain the theories of homosexuality in nature, it might as well be from a biased gay and lesbian sympathiser like John/Joan.

Animals are so-named for a reason – because they behave like animals.  It’s certainly not the norm in terms of percentages, but a handful of animals have engaged in same-sex copulation.  Do they do this to procreate?  Of course not.  Caught up in the frenzy of breeding cycles, the scent of mating in the air, males have been known to mount each other during these sexually-heightened periods - they are animals after all.

Is this what so-called scientists classify as ‘natural’ behaviour for these animals?  Joan herself disagrees with a number of Darwin’s theories, just as many transsexuals and homosexuals disagree with her on several issues – mass confusion all around.

In many of the examples of same sex pairing, it’s often the scenario of a mate partnering with another mate, forming a social union for companionship.  Homosexual sympathisers would have us believe that most these pairings include sexual engagement, but this is simply not true.

However, if the theory of evolution were true, then those believers in the theory should agree that over time, the ‘homosexual gene’ would become extinct as gays cannot procreate.  But evolutionists, whilst ‘in bed’ with the gay and lesbian communities, wouldn’t dare tread on such tumultuous ground...

So what are the gayest types of plants and animals then? 

Petunias look suspect, and I’d be wary of Agapanthus.  But I’m definitely keeping an eye on the Chinese Fleeceflower – who knows what these highly-sexed roots get up to underground?

Animals?  Hmm, tough one.  Apart from Elton John’s Chihuahua and the entire pride of Siegfried and Roy’s fluffy lions, I’m not sure I’d risk classifying any animals as gay.

But then again, I’m not a transsexual gay-sympathising scientist who conducts research with a highly-questionable agenda.
