    Have you ever seen homosexual behavior in non-human animals?
    One day, I saw two male ducks constantly following each other in the park.

    They're getting ready to tear each others' heads off. It's a territorial thing.

    I had a gay dog; of course there are gay animals - it's natural, just like with people.

    Several of my animals are mostly homosexual or bisexual. And it is almost impossible to find a sexual species on the planet that is exclusively and entirely heterosexual.

    With the lions is it a domination/rape thing or is it mutual? I've heard of lots of examples of this.

    My old boss had a siberian husky who was a big sissy but I don't recall if he ever got it on with a boy dog or not. He just hated to get dirty or exert himself.

    It's usually mutual. Homosexuality has been found in just about every animal species on earth, but it's especially common among social animals. Lions I believe do it for social bonding.

    I believe Hopper is talking about freshwater fish. It's a different kind of Angelfish. My lesbian fish were freshwater Angelfish as well. They must be prone to making those immoral lifestyle choices. We should shun them. icon_biggrin.gif

    Funny.

    Though I think it is not even all salt water angels. Possibly just one or a few of the varieties of that species. Just thought it was apropos to the conversation is all.

    I was just clarifying it because there are different types of fish referred to as Angelfish. It confuses people. There are multiple types of fish that are known to change gender. It's somewhat related to the topic, but gender isn't the same thing as sexual attraction.

    Got it and that's a good fish story explanation (sorry, couldn't resist). I just brought it up because his mention of angelfish reminded me of that angelfish story which I was able to quickly google/copy/paste.

    But let me see if I understand what you're saying about gender and sexual attraction: the angelfish that changed sex was originally a lesbian anyway? Just kidding--yet sort of interesting because wouldn't the preop dominant female have been a breeder yet now attracted to females to breed? So the change might be gender as well as attraction.

    It would be interesting to see if there's a change in the wiring of an angelfish's brain, regarding attraction, when it physically changes gender.

    Either way, always remember the angelfish represents the T of LGBT.

    Of course there is homosexual behavior in animals. This is what has always perplexed me about us humans who often claim that they know what's "natural" when it comes to sexual behavior but those rules somehow change when they observe empirical proof of homosexual behavior among animals in "nature." As a natural scientist, this insane conundrum and confusion and then attempted justification for what is usually made under the guise of religion among us "higher ordered primates" makes me laugh, a lot.

    I thought my cat was a big ol' homo. He liked guys more than girls and he was obsessive about getting his back scratched near his tail.

    One of my dogs is kinda lesbionic. It's not the mullet or the Indigo Girls or the clunky shoes, but she wants to be the alpha in her play group and doesn't back down to any other dogs.

    QUOTE AUTHOR GOES HEREOn Thursday October 12 2006 The Natural History Museum, University of Oslo, opened the first-ever museum exhibition dedicated to gay animals.

    Today we know that homosexuality is a common and widespread phenomenon in the animal world. Not only short-lived sexual relationships, but even long-lasting partnerships; partnerships that may last a lifetime.

    The exhibit displays a small selection of the more than 1500 species where homosexuality has been observed. This fascinating story of the animals' secret life is told by means of models, photos, texts and specimens. The visitor will be confronted with all sorts of creatures from tiny insects to enormous spermwhales.

    How can we know that an animal is homosexual? How can homosexual behaviour be consistent with what we have learned about evolution and darwinism?

    Sadly, most museums have no traditions for airing difficult, unspoken, and possibly controversial questions. Homosexuality is certainly such a question. We feel confident that a greater understanding of how extensive and common this behaviour is among animals, will help to de-mystify homosexuality among people. - At least, we hope to reject the all too well known argument that homosexual behaviour is a crime against nature.

    The exhibition has received financial supported from the Norwegian Archive, Library and Museum Authority.

    The exhibit will run to August 19 2007.

    True

    I wonder why a lot of straight people keep saying that homosexuality is abnormal and anti-natural if homo behavior is also present in the nature!


    am I the only one that finds this kind of reasoning disturbing and insulting?

    I think homosexuality is just a different sexual orientation. not an abnormal sexual orientation icon_confused.gif
