London acquarium raising a “genderless” penguin chick

The promotion of the radical LGBTQ agenda in society has been relentless but this move takes the cultural battle in a whole new direction. The Sea Life London Aquarium is bringing gender neutrality out into the open using the animal kingdom.

A 4-month-old penguin chick in the London aquarium is being used for a political agenda, which is something I never foresaw writing about. The story caught my attention because I’m particularly fond of penguins. A sentimental gesture sparked my interest in the creatures more than 30 years ago. Now a story about two gay penguins raising a chick presents an excuse for the Sea Life London Aquarium to declare the chick as genderless. It is a first for the aquarium to do this. The young penguin is also still nameless but I hope the aquarium will correct that in the near future.

“While the decision may ruffle a few feathers, gender neutrality in humans has only recently become a widespread topic of conversation,” Graham McGrath, the aquarium’s general manager, said in a statement. “However, it is completely natural for penguins to develop genderless identities as they grow into mature adults.”

Ok, if it is “completely natural for penguins to develop genderless identities” why is the aquarium doing this? Just for publicity? Maybe. Mostly, though, it looks like it is to conflate penguin characteristics with those of human beings. Penguins do possess some admirable human-like qualities – they are monogamous and mate for life, the male penguins play a big role in nurturing chicks, and, like me, they are partial to ice-free areas.

The adopted chick of Rocky and Marama won’t be given a gendered name and identification band like the other penguins. This one will be identified with a purple band. I see potential medical bills for psychiatric therapy sessions in this little one’s future. After all, it is being labeled as different from all the other penguins- that ‘s got to mess with its psyche in the future, right? Isn’t it politically incorrect to label others as different? See, we can take this nonsense as far as anyone wants.

This little chick was chosen because of the gay penguins raising it.

As for why this particular chick was chosen to be the aquarium’s first “genderless” one, Sea Life noted that this chick “captured the Aquarist team and guest’s imaginations after it was successfully adopted by two female penguins.”

“This was the first time we had successfully adopted a chick onto a same-sex couple and to mark the parenting achievements of Rocky and Marama in helping to develop the chick into a happy and healthy penguin,” Sea Life wrote in a statement. “It made sense to continue to allow it to be identified more naturally by staff and guests at the aquarium in the future.”

Yes, in order to play up the fact that the chick was adopted by two female penguins, the aquarium is calling it genderless, at least for the time being. Aren’t these people supposed to be a part of the scientific community? How do they deny the sexual development of an animal just to make a splash (no pun intended) in the culture wars?

The gender-is-fluid crowd is now expanding into the animal kingdom. I’ll give some credit to the Sydney Sea Life Aquarium. When two Gentoo penguins adopted a chick last October, they treated that event as normal business. That chick wasn’t made a test experiment for the cultural warriors among us.

We live in really stupid times. Gay animals exist in nature. A few animals can switch gender. Let the little penguin grow as was intended.

Almost in Time for Pride Month: The London Zoo Celebrates Gay Mating, Gay Animals, & Gay Parents

The ZSL London Zoo is letting everyone know that animals are gay.

In celebration of the notion that two penguins are gay, the zoo is giving the whole joint a “Pride makeover.”

On July 5th, in addition to its normal (18+ only) Zoo Night festivities, the London Zoo will teach attendees about gender, mating, and same-sex animal pairings.

From a press release:

On top of Zoo Nights’ packed schedule of activities, visitors will be able to learn about gender and mating in the animal kingdom at a Pride-themed talk, where they’ll discover just how common same-sex pairings are – from penguins and pandas to goats and giraffes. Visitors can check out the Zoo’s pride of lions, enjoy delicious street food from around the world, and score a hole-in-one at the Zoo’s new mini-golf course.

And if that ain’t enough, they’ve designed a special banner for Penguin Beach — home of the touted tuxedoed two:

“Get Over It,” in case you didn’t know, is the slogan for a gay anti-bullying campaign.

The zoo says Ronnie and Reggie — the fabulously homosexual penguin pair — got together in 2014.

They adopted an abandoned egg a year later, sharing parenting duties until the little chick left the nest.

According to the zoo’s website, the two birds “remain as strong as ever and are often found snuggled up in their nest box together.”

Of the 93 penguins living at the facility, the London Zoo claims Ronnie and Reggie aren’t the only ones who are gay:

The duo share their home with 91 other penguins, including fellow same sex couples Nadja and Zimmer and Dev and Martin, as well as one-year-old Rainbow who hatched during Pride celebrations last year and will celebrate her first birthday this weekend.

Who knew nature was so gay, right there in front of everybody, this whole time?

The Zoo may have a bone to pick with some people in France.

As reported by The Telegraph:

Penguins are not gay, despite new evidence of homosexual behaviour in the wild, they are just “same sex flirting” until they find a mate, according to a new study.

The homosexual behaviour of male king penguins has already been noted in zoos.

Now in a new study, scientists have found the evidence of male pairs in the wild. The research found that more than a quarter of the colony in Antarctica were in same sex partners, mostly two males.

In the past, it was claimed that penguins could not discern between the sexes because they looked alike. Male pairs in zoos in the US and Germany have hatched and reared ‘adopted’ chicks.

However, the new study by the Centre for Functional and Evolutionary Ecology in Montpellier, France found that the penguins are only pairing up with other males because they are “lonely.”

There are not enough females in the colony and the males have high levels of testosterone, which drives them to engage in mating displays – even if it is with other males.

Professor F Stephen Dobson, one of the authors of the study published in the journal Ethology, said the number of same sex pairs was actually lower than expected. When the colony was studied over time he found all the ‘gay’ penguins chose a heterosexual partner. A female pair also ‘split up’ to raise an egg with male partner.
