Gay flamingos pick up chick

From the AP via Yahoo courtesy of AlterNet:

A pair of gay flamingos have adopted an abandoned chick, becoming parents after being together for six years, a British conservation organisation said Monday.

Carlos and Fernando had been desperate to start a family, even chasing other flamingos from their nests to take over their eggs at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) in Slimbridge near Bristol.

But their egg-sitting prowess made them the top choice for taking an unhatched egg under their wings when one of the Greater Flamingo nests was abandoned.

So who says homosexuality isn't natural? And not only is gay sex found in nature, there is also gay love, along with what amounts to gay marriage. The nature argument against homosexuals just doesn't fly. I also like the fact that these two gay birds are pink flamingos, probably the gayest animals in the world, whether they're homosexual or not. I also like the fact that they're named Carlos and Fernando. That's pretty gay, too.

Hooray for gay flamingos!
