This has been all over Norwegian news for several weeks now, but has now also reached international news: The first ever exhibition of homosexuality among animals
. The purpose of the exhibition is to refute the notion that homosexuality is unnatural.
I'm not posting this to make it easier for Rym and Scott to get out of the closet ;-), nor do I believe the intelligent users of this forum has such homophobic and uninformed beliefs. I think however not enough intelligent people know how utterly normal homosexuality is in the animal realm.
I am quite involved in this topic because my brother, Petter BÃ¸ckman, is one of the persons behind this exhibition. He has been on TV, radio and in newspapers a lot lately talking about this, and since we look a lot alike, I am from time to time confronted by strangers who has an opinion they need to express. So far I haven't run into the real nuts, and have only had interesting discussions.
Only a small percentage of our population are very religious, but there are enough of them that hilarious statements have reached news columns. One pastor has claimed my brother will burn in hell (he is very pleased to have made a stir), and another is very angry that tax money is being used on such "political propaganda". He thinks that money instead should be used on converting these perverted animals! :-D
