Can you believe a local teacher has been suspended after reports that he had students in his classes read an article about homosexuality in the animal kingdom. The teacher is said to have allowed students to read the article "The Gay Animal Kingdom" from the June issue of Seed Magazine, a science and culture publication.

I read the article and I can't understand what all the fuss is about. I certainly don't think it warrants a teacher being suspended! What do you think? If you read the link to the Jacksonville newspaper article, be sure and read the readers comments at the bottom (always very informative and thought provoking).
Being farmers, we have often wondered about some of our animals over the years. Here's a photo of two male pigs we had a little more than a year ago. Let's just say, at minimum they were very "close." Another farmer gave them to us ... hmmmm, I wonder why.
And these two roosters showed no interest in hens and fought with all the chickens. They were eventually housed in their own coop, where they lived happily ever after.
