The Lesbian Seagull Hoax

The RadioLab podcast reports:
In the 1970s, as LGBTQ+ people in the United States faced conservatives whose top argument was that homosexuality is “unnatural,” a pair of young scientists discovered on a tiny island off the coast of California a colony of seagulls that included… a significant number of lesbian couples making nests and raising chicks together. The article that followed upended the culture’s understanding of what’s natural and took the discourse on homosexuality in a whole new direction.

In this episode, our co-Host Lulu Miller grapples with the impact of this and several other studies about animal queerness on her life as a queer person.

This podcast explains how this story was celebrated by queers all over the world, and published in the top AAAS Science journal, as proof that homosexuality was natural. Laws calling sodomy an unnatural act were proven wrong, by science.

It is very difficult to even tell the difference between the male and female seagulls. The male does not have a penis, or any outward physical difference. Maybe a human lesbian would prefer to avoid a penis, but the concept does not even apply to seagulls.

But then, towards the end of the episode, it reveals that the whole thing was a hoax. Scientists went back to the island, and there were no lesbian seagulls. The seagulls all mated in the opposite sex manner.

It is not clear whether the earlier Science journal paper had faked data, or merely misinterpreted a naturally-occurring sex imbalance. Possibly there was an excess of females. There were still having sexual relations with males, and laying eggs, but not finding enough males for pair bonding.

The poscast does not mention it, but there have been similar hoaxes involving penguins and other animals.

I do not think that we should be looking to animals for guidance on human behavior, so the whole story is misguided. I post this to explain that these stories are just pro-queer hoaxes.

If you really want to know what dark secrets lurk in the gay underworld's subconcious, just check out Amazon books. It's actually quite chock full of gay fantasy novels revolving around 'mpreg' or male pregnancy stories, which seek to promote the idea that women are conceptually and biologically irrelevant, and that there is nothing inherently wrong with the idea of human same sex reproduction.

Being that the LGBTQ(enter wifi password here) community supports castrating children with 'gender affirming care' for the most part, it is a marvel they take interest in reproduction at all. This is a landmine their community will not survive if they don't step carefully.

I think self respecting homosexuals need to make it very clear they do not support mutilating children, or literally queering minors for that matter. This is an issue that will come back and bite the gay community on the ass in a way they won't be enjoying.

All it takes is for someone to develop a genetic screening test for homosexuality, and the gay community will discover to their horror it's supposed 'allies' are now 'pro-choicing' them out of existence before they are even born. I do wonder how long the gay community will support pro choice when it means their own extinction via eugenics.

My strong recommendation to the gay community: Leave the kids alone, and quit screwing with their minds as they progress through puberty to adulthood, or face the wrath of the VERY angry parents. Sexual maturation is an essential part of life, and if you oppose it, you are getting in the way of life. That won't be tolerated for very long even by your 'allies'.

Get between a parent and their child, and then hide it from the parent, and you will learn of a hell you aren't familiar with.
