Penguins do it.
Penguins are just adorable, aren't they? I wonder if they're going to name the baby, Tango?
Aside from that, who cares from gay or straight. The mental image I formed of these two getting an egg, hatching it, and excitedly setting about rearing their baby? Just melted me.
P.S. The " gay rights activists" mentioned in the story were just being silly. Not to be excessively heteronormative or anything, but if the penguins were homosexual other than just situationally, the presence of females would have made little or no difference. (Unless, of course, the male penguins were separated from each other in an attempt to force male-female mating. The article doesn't go into that kind of detail.)
P. P. S. Because I'm not entirely without malice, I can't wait to hear what the wingnuts have to say.
