According to a recent study, almost every kind of animal on Earth engages in homosexual behavior whether intentional or natural. Lead scientist on the study, Nathan Bailey, says the list includes, among others, dolphins, penguins, frogs and birds.

"It's clear that same-sex sexual behavior extends far beyond the well-known examples that dominate both the scientific and popular literature," said Bailey, a postdoctoral researcher of biology at University of California, Riverside.

The study was published in today's edition of the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution.

In some cases the animals are not aware that they are engaging in same-sex tendencies. One example are male fruit flies. According to the study, males in some cases will unintentionally cater to other male flies because they lack a gene which allows them to determine the sexes of other fruit flies. Bottle nose dolphins have also been known to sometimes engage in homosexual behavior as a way to socially bond with other dolphins.

Bailey states that such actions will have an effect on evolution, but that science is only just beginning to research what the effects might be. Bailey also said that natural selection could be playing a role in what animals engage in homosexual behavior.

"Like any other behavior that doesn't lead directly to reproduction — such as aggression or altruism — same-sex behavior can have evolutionary consequences that are just now beginning to be considered," Bailey said.

He added that "same-sex behaviors — courtship, mounting or parenting — are traits that may have been shaped by natural selection, a basic mechanism of evolution that occurs over successive generations."

Scientists included in the study research on the origins of homosexual behavior in animals, examining whether the behavior is adaptive in an animal's environment, and whether it happens often

And somehow I already knew this.
At least it's good to have your facts straight when you're arguing against bigoted pricks.

Anyone that owns a dog knows that they mount each other, regardless of what sex to show dominance.
I'm pretty sure everyone who's ever gone to the zoo also knows that animals show homosexual behavior.
It's not rocket science.

"if i did im sure I wouldnt've noticed animal homo porn"
Yeah.. sure you wouldn't notice. Apparently you have eyes that can somehow erase any animals expressing homosexual behaviour. I hear a homophobic screaming.

If I saw two animal dudes wrestling I would assume they were fighting or something
my brain wouldnt automaticallty go to a homo animal fantasy

and your a mod now are you sure u can call me homophobic?



Just because I'm a mod doesn't mean I can't express my opinion of you from what you're giving me.
There's a fine line between humping and wrestling. Even you, I'm sure can tell the difference.
Also no one goes around looking for it. They tend to show the entire world right in the middle of the cage/arena.


Edit to below for the 2nd time


^ So what we were doing that day, I should call it wrestling?
Lol and ok Ive never been to a zoo so I'll take ur word 4 it haha

I guess so since your peepee was too small to call it anything else ._.
Anyway, this discussion is over. You're completely going off-topic and dragging me with you.
