    Gay flamingos? Surprise!

    But, seriously, you’d think the fact that same sex relationships clearly exist in a wide variety of animals would make people reject the notion that it’s against nature, right? But, of course it doesn’t. Because that’s not really why so many people oppose homosexuality, they oppose it because they’re xenophobic and angry and scared of difference. All of the ‘reasons’ based on religion, nature, health etc. they give are just a means of justifying their pre-existing prejudices.
