Sigourney Weaver: Gorillas Are Superior To Humans Because They’re Not Homophobic


I know that when I go to GLAAD events and Comic-Con, there are all these great kids. They have so much going for them, especially when they are trying to figure out who they are. They are so vulnerable, the last thing anyone should be doing is making them feel bad for what or who they are. My god, they need so much support…The fact that it’s all still wrapped up in religion and shame, I’m very impatient with our species. I don’t think gorillas in the wild do this. They are superior to us in every way. Chimps I don’t know, they are always at each other for something. In the wild, what happens? Because I feel we have so many things to learn from other species. Maybe because our brains are big and we have thumbs, we stay up here [pointing to head] instead of down here [pointing to chest].”

    Well, the majority of gorillas are apparently bisexual in their behaviour and they don’t appear to be burdened with any religious beliefs and associated guilt feelings about sex and sinfulness.

    Not sure that makes them superior so much as just fortunate. Well, they would be fortunate if it wasn’t for human beings endangering their survival.

    Gotta love Sigourney. She definitely is a national treasure.
    Since I can’t find a way to work it in smoothly, I’m just gonna say it, “Get away from her YOU BITCH”
