Same-sex behaviour nearly universal across animal species

I hesitate to overindulge on queer issues, but this new scientific finding is really interesting.

For a long while now the scientific community has been stating that same-sex coupling is common among many species, such as bonobos, dolphins, and penguins. These are the most famous (not to mention cute and romantic) examples.

But now a new study from the University of California, Riverside, reveals that same-sex coupling is nearly universal across all animal species!

Read the National Geographic article. Click the link, if only to see the adorable photo of the female Laysan Albatross couple. According to the article, they “remain pair-bonded for life and cooperatively rear young.” Awwww…. See? Maybe there’s hope for us humans after all!
