BOTSWANA – Two adult male lions have been photographed apparently trying to mate in Botswana, Africa. And social media is all atwitter. A documentation of two apparently gay lions is being used to bolster the case of gay marriage.
First of all, will fundamentalist Christians be forced to watch only censored nature documentaries now? And second, will gay safaris now shoot to the top of every well to do gay couple’s honeymoon checklist? It’s almost inevitable…
Look, it’s probably not best to use lions as an example for human policy decisions on gay marriage. After all, they sometimes kill one another in battles for mates (heterosexual and otherwise). But to pretend homosexuality is something that doesn’t happen in nature is also a mistake.
