New research suggests that animals can be gay too, which would defy Darwin's theory that the sexual impulses of animals are designed to cause reproduction and are therefore necessarily heterosexual.

The research, conducted on an Albatross colony in the University of Hawaii, shows one third of the 'pairs' who commit to each other for life consist of two females, lesbian's.

After feeding their wombs with male sperm, the pairs of females nest with their 'wives' and incubate their eggs together.

An expert on homosexuality in animals, which raise all sorts of questions in itself!, from the University of Oslo says sexuality is not just about making babies, it is also about making the flock work and for some animals, homosexuality is normal flock behaviour.

Researchers and biologists claim 'gay' animal behaviour has been spotted in 1,500 different species including giraffes, butterflies, koalas, dolphins, octopuses and sheep to name a few.

However this research comes with mass-bebate, a gay biologist at the University of Wisconsin, said researchers assume animals are not gay because of a "heterosexual bias".

Others argue that animals are programmed to be heterosexual in order to survive.

An angry (not nutty) professor of bioethics at the University of Navarre, Spain seems to think Homosexuality does not exist in animals.

Ah....but wait....Professor Paul Harvey, head of zoology at the University of Oxford, said it is wrong to use examples of animals to support arguments over whether it is 'natural' to be gay.

O.K. so who's right and who's wrong? Some say it's a huge mistake to think studying homosexuality in animals gives us a greater understanding of human behaviour.

At the end of the day use common sense, if you want to know why humans are gay, ask a human.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
