I'm curious about your statement having to do with gay animals. The transgender one about animal's is valid because there are species that can switch their genders... (frogs, I think..).. but saying that gay animal's exhist in the wild is... a stretch. For one thing, instinct is a powerful thing in the animal kingdom. And for another thing... ( and I'm sure this will have people wanting to lynch me )... I think there is a neccessary level of intelligence needed for such a thing. Animal's are just animal's. They only know instinct and their instincts wouldn't tell them to try breeding with another creature of the same gender..[/quote:lhx3856f]
Homosexuality in animals is actually quite common as [url=http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2004/07/0722_040722_gayanimal.html:lhx3856f]this[/url:lhx3856f] National Geographic article shows. When homosexuality is so prevalent in nature, I would deem it "natural" and certainly not a "crime against nature"
