2 Homosexual Male Swans Debase British Enclave With Adorable Romance

At the Abbotsbury Swannery, in Weymouth, two male swans have put their romance on full display of staffers and visitors in what can only be described as an abomination of natural selection. They spend the nesting season together, and “act in every way as if they were a pair expecting to lay eggs,” says the swannery’s manager. They even get into bitch fights, like a true couple of queens. Cute.

    Beautiful, just beautiful. God and Nature showing off a fact of life!

    That is all.

    I have read that if male pair bonded swans find an abandoned egg, they will hatch it and raise the chick.

  • Andy

    @Cam: Yeah, but they won’t be as good parents and their relationship shouldn’t be acknowledged by the staff.

    Swans would make a good mascot for the gay community: Beautiful and graceful, yet if you mess with them, they will kick your ass.

    Hundreds of species of animals and even insects have homosexuality as a normal part of their species. Go to your library and read author Bruce Bagemihl’s 1999 book Biological Exuberance: Animal Homosexuality and Natural Diversity.
    Even my grandpa in North Carolina, a farmer, knew about gay animals. He’d seen plenty of them on his farm over the years.

    @Ogre Magi: Terrific idea anout swans as a new symbol for gays!

    This proves that homosexuality is natural. Who are we to deny their right to marry? Cue to Mick Huckabee….

    Cute couple!
    I hope they get a chance to adopt an egg.
    I also hope that no one tries to get them into “conversion therapy” or refuses them at a B&B or keeps them away from the Swan Prom :-D

    Wow! Always thought swans were beautiful anyway! :)
