Big Gay Animals

Earlier this month Prince, author of the fine fine blog Bamboo Nation wrote a piece for the Bilerico Project entitled "Same-Sex Shenanigans Performed by Nearly ALL Animals". Turns out some article was recently posted in one of those academic journals on the subject. While I don't have a link to the technical article, I do have LiveScience's article on the article.

In any case, it says pretty much what the title implies: pretty much every species of animal has homosexuals.

Which reminds me of a story a guy I knew from my days working at The Goodman Theatre in Chicago once told me. He'd grown up on a farm and one year they'd been able to buy a bull with incredible blood lines for really cheap. They couldn't believe their luck. But over time they noticed he wasn't gettin' it on with any of the lady cows. Then one day the guy I knew went out into the field for some reason or another and saw the bull mounting one of the other bulls. Yep. He was a big gay bull.

At this point I would love to embed a clip of Big Gay Al's Big Gay Animal Sanctuary from South Park, but I can't find a good one. Instead, I'll direct you here, to the official South Park page, where you can see it.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
