  •  Prostitution... (none)

    is another feature of penguin life.
     Can't help but wonder how the Religious Right feels about the intelligent design of animal prostitutes.

    Seriously, this arbitrary use of some animals as role models is just weird.  Why not go for a matriarchical society, like elephants and orcas do? After all, both species have much bigger brains than humans.

    The whole issue reminds me of the "homosexuality is un-natural" argument that was popular a generation or so ago.  Yup, there were no queers other than people, so it was an "un-natural act".

    Now, you'd think that once it was illustrated that there were certainly homosexual non-human primates, and ducks, and horses, and cows, and many many more species, the argument would die down.  Something like "Whoops, my bad.  It's natural after all."  But no, the argument suddenly changed to "Homosexual acts are no better than what animals do.  Ewww."

    We didn't really need any more proof that the age of reason passed this crowd by, but they seem happy to provide it just the same.
