Happy Weekend Dearest People!
I am still going with my 'Sexual Identity' posts...
But first, I wanna tell you that I am doing well - still trying hard to force myself into studying, but in vain. I am such a procrastinator. I HATE studying lol. I cannot wait till graduation - just 100 days to go (YAY!!!).
Nothing special around - some friends brought pizza, ice cream, juice (yeah no alcohol for moi) and other junk food today so we got to skip the crappy school dinner; so I enjoyed it. I am forcing myself into studying... Exams start on Monday and am so NOT ready - FML!
Random fact - I think Latino boys are yummy (yeah, I cannot decide on what type is my favorite lol)
A Mexican guy came to our school (a representative from some college in Mexico) and he had the most adorable face ever and the sexiest English accent I have ever heard!! I didn't interact with him - just saw his cute face and heard him say a few words lol
So let's go back to my research:
Homosexual behavior in the animal kingdom
- — A 1999 review by researcher Bruce Bagemihl shows that homosexual behavior, has been observed in close to 1500 species, ranging from primates to gut worms, and is well documented for 500 of them.
- — A new review made in 2009 of existing research showed that Same-sex behavior is a nearly universal phenomenon in the animal kingdom, common across species.
- — Such behaviors include sex, courtship, affection, pair bonding, and parenting.
aren't they adorable?
The Amazon River dolphin or boto has been reported to form up in bands of 3-5 individuals enjoying group sex. The groups usually comprise young males and sometimes one or two females. Sex is performed in non-reproductive ways, using snout, flippers and general rubbing, without regards to gender. They will sometimes perform homosexual penetration of the blowhole, a hole homologous with the nostril of other mammals, making this the only known example of nasal sex in the animal kingdom. The males will sometimes also perform sex with tucuxi males, a small porpoise.
well, can't blame them; they've got such a gay skin color lol
In 1998 two male Griffon vultures named Dashik and Yehuda, at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, engaged in "open and energetic sex" and built a nest. The keepers provided the couple with an artificial egg, which the two parents took turns incubating; and 45 days later, the zoo replaced the egg with a baby vulture. The two male vultures raised the chick together. A few years later, however, Yehuda became interested in a female vulture that was brought into the aviary. Dashik became depressed, and was eventually moved to the zoological research garden at Tel Aviv University where he too set up a nest with a female vulture.
very manly, hey!?
Male homosexuality has been inferred in several species of dragonflies . The cloacal pinchers of male damselflies and dragonflies inflict characteristic head damage to females during sex. A survey of 11 species of damsel and dragonflies has revealed such mating damages in 20 to 80 % of the males too, indicating a fairly high occurrence of sexual coupling between males.
Very flamboyant, hey?
