And Tango Makes Three

I went for an interview at a cool tech/cause NGO this morning and then headed over to Songbird to freeload pizza and catch up on reading. According to HuffPo, the "gay" penguin book, "And Tango Makes Three" is the book most objected to in US public libraries. Based on a true story, the book tells the tale of Roy and Silo, two male Chinstrap penguins who hatched an egg in NY's Central Park Zoo. (Awww)

I understand that homophobia is still an awful reality, but what I don't understand is how we know that the birds are gay. Were they practicing Bob Fosse numbers with their tiny jazz flippers? Are heterosexual males incapable of cooperating as parents?

Doesn't anyone else remember Three Men and a Baby? It won a People's Choice award and homosexuality was never even discussed. Do we just assume that if they were gay, Magnum P.I. and Sam Malone would've kicked Steve Guttenberg to the curb?

No way they kick Guttenberg to the curb - that's Officer Mahoney! What if he comes back with Hightower and Tackleberry?
