    BERLIN (Reuters) - A plan by a German zoo to test the sexual appetites of a group of suspected homosexual penguins has sparked outrage among gay and lesbian groups, who fear zookeepers might force them to turn straight.

    "All sorts of gay and lesbian associations have been e-mailing and calling in to protest," said a spokesman for the zoo in the northwestern city of Bremerhaven on Friday.

    He said the zoo concluded the penguins might be gay after seeing male penguins trying to mate with other males and trying to hatch offspring out of stones.

    German media reported that female Swedish penguins would be brought to the zoo to test the theory, but when word got out about the plan, the phones started ringing.

    "Nobody here is trying to break-up same sex pairs by force," the zoo's director Heike Kueck told public broadcaster NDR. "We don't know if the three male pairs are really gay or just got together because of a lack of females."

    Instead of getting all hysterical, the German homosexuals and lesbians should come up with an ordinary, common sense solution.

    If they're worried about zookeepers cruelly changing the "orientation" of these poor penguins ( certainly an earth-shattering concern in light of world events), the answer is simple enough. Find the penguin equivalents of Rosie O'Donnel and Sarah Bernhardt and unleash them. Those males will turn the zoo into a 'Frisco bathhouse faster than you can say "more money for Penguin AIDS research"!

    Sounds to me more like they are afraid this little exercise is going to cause problems in their "Homosexuality is natural" argument. Why i dont know. But they are obviously threatened by this.
