Well, all right, sadly not — but he would be.
According to Reuters, not only are there storks who’ve settled down into same-sex relationships, but some of them are raising chicks. (Wait for the commercial to play out to see the video story.)
Presumably at least one of the birds is an adoptive parent.
Now one of the arguments against gay marriage put forth by the right-wing idiots is that it’s unnatural. Well, then, why does it appear to occur … in nature? Is what’s good for the goose (or stork) acceptable to the primate?
Actually there’s only so much ultra right-wing stupidity I can take in any given entry without running the risk of my head exploding, so I’ll just leave it here and offer assurances that there are plenty of other reasons fundie hogwash is worthy of little more than a hearty, derisive laugh.
But I do have to wonder how these birds would fare in a zoo in, say, Alabama. My guess is they’d either be forced apart or killed — after all, if little Billy Joe Bob Ray happens to see a couple of queer birds, he might decide it’s okay to do himself, right? (“Hey, daddy who’s also my brother, can I try that too?”)
I mean, that’s the whole “recruitment” argument in shell of nut, innit?
