    Zookeepers criticized for separating "gay" male penguins to try to get them to mate with females

    Zookeepers in Toronto have walked unexpectedly into an argument over gay rights, after deciding to separate two apparently gay African penguins named Buddy and Pedro. The two male birds have been courting the way males and females do, grooming each other and swimming together. They show no interest in the lovesick females following them around. Zoo officials, noting that the species is endangered, insist on splitting up the the lovebirds in the hopes they'll take up with lady penguins and pass on their genes. Should the zookeepers let the gay penguins be?

    This is unfair and homophobic: These "gay hating zookeepers" are the worst, says Brian Moylan at Gawker. "Buddy and his Latin lover Pedro" came to Toronto from Toledo, Ohio, "and they were already a couple." Let them stay together "they probably wouldn't have sex with a woman if they were the last penguins on Earth anyway."
    "Don't break up the gay penguins!"

    Wow, "gay hating" and "homophobic" for attempting to save a species. What an idiot.

    Okay, this is ridiculous enough to have come from The Onion.

    Well at some point it will become very apparent which way they swing. If they refuse to mate with females, then they'll know.

    Are they not able to artificially inseminate the females if need be?
