Mother nature flips the bird

Or, rather, the duck. Two endangered blue ducks, Ben and Jerry, have chosen each other over ready-to-make-duck-babies female duck, Cherry. Aw. According to Paul Stevens of the Arundel Wetland Centre in Sussex (UK), the two male ducks exhibit typical mating behavior towards each other, and spend all their time together, paying little attention to the female in their midst.

I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before the intolerant fundie nutnuts find some way of twisting this around, but Ben and Jerry are pretty clear evidence that homosexuality occurs naturally in non-humans as well as humans, and that it is not a choice.

Unless we’re expected to believe that ducks make the conscious decision to bat for the other team, or that they watch too much Queer as Folk, or are brainwashed by their little leftie liberal duck teachers in their little duck schools to think that being gay is a-ok, leading to the eventual downfall of Duckkind, as the whole of Duckdom throws morality to the wind and begins copulating furiously with every same-sex duck they can clutch in their limp-feathered, glitter-spangled wings.

Is that really the more likely explanation?
