A pair of gay flamingos have adopted an abandoned chick, becoming parents after being together for six years, a British conservation organisation said Monday.
"They were rather good at sitting on eggs and hatching them so last week, when a nest was abandoned, it seemed like a good idea to make them surrogate parents."
Gay flamingos are not uncommon, she added.
"If there aren't enough females or they don't hit it off with them, they will pair off with other males," she said.
A truly remarkable convergence of nature and nurture that can and should be replicated in humanity.
We are awaiting the FIC Blogs demand to protest pink flamingo lawn ornaments because of their obvious un-Christian-like behaviour (by their wing-nut standards, at least) and in order to remain as relevant to the debate as they usually are.
