I've always been fascinated by homosexual tendencies in animals because they simply prove that, yes, homosexuality is natural. I highly doubt Black Swans males are getting together because of the evil influences of Will and Grace.
The entire article on Wikipedia that I took that from is quite fascinating, but it was the swans that caught my attentions. Swans, as I said, generally mate for life and what is more romantic than that?
An estimated one-quarter of all black swans pairings are homosexual and they steal nests, or form temporary threesomes with females to obtain eggs, driving away the female after she lays the eggs. More of their cygnets survive to adulthood than those of different-sex pairs, possibly due to their superior ability to defend large portions of land. The same reasoning has been applied to male flamingo pairs raising chicks.
No long opinion piece today, just swans...gay swans. I want to meet a woman I could be with for life...gah, I'm getting hopelessly romantic again.
