    In short, it's a bunch of parents making a big deal over a book that's about 2 male penguins raising a baby penguin. Fortunately, the school plans to keep the book on the shelves, but does our society have its head planted ever so far up its own ass that we can't even handle a childrens' book about a few penguins? So who cares if they're gay, I doubt most kids would even notice it, they'll just be happy that the penguins live happily ever after.

    well, i honestly don't see any other issue floating around in the country right now more relevant than penguin's relationships. :rolleyes:

    some people's priorities are really messed up.

    by the way, the book is based on the true story of a homosexual penguin couple in the new york zoo, who raised a chick from an extra egg of a hetero couple, after unsuccessfully trying to hatch a rock.
    them newyorkers! :)

    Hey, gay penguins. Next you'll have gay waiters, gay conductors, they'll be gay all over the place. Anarchy, I tell you.
    Cats and dogs living together! Gay cats and dogs!

    Anarchy!

    You know, objecting to a book about gay penguins is stupid.

    Objecting to a book based on a *true story* about gay penguins is ludicrous.

    Today: gay penguins. Tomorrow: the End of Civilization as We Know It.
