German "gay" penguins spark protest
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."
So gay/lesbian activists are up in arms because zoo officials are determining if the penguins are gay by putting a female in the tank?
A quick Google search for "Gay Lesbian Germany Problems" turns up:
* Heightened rates of suicide among GLBT people
* Same-sex marriage legislation
* Adoption legislation for same-sex families
And by intuition, issues with the propagation of far-right parties that are angling to be modern Nazis.
And yet, the possibility that the male penguins may have just been engaging in sex-play with each other, and would prefer to have females gets them up in arms?

No no. Forcing them to be straight by bringing in females to test their sexuality.

Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower
The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.
dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing
Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
