Via the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Jason Adkins (Director of the Minnesota Catholic Conference) is saying that the GLBT community isn’t equal. Not equal? There should be no such thing as second-class citizen.
That’s some bullshit. Adkins is a fool. And what’s the public purpose of marriage at all? You don’t need to be married to reproduce, and there’s certainly no guarantee that marriage creates a more stable population.
Marriage, at least the contemporary, 21st-century version of marriage (which is all that matters, since that’s what we’re living), is a love license.
but I can’t go on twitter to complain about it. so
Biology and Evolution are weird bedfellows.
Echidnas and the platypus are the only egg-laying mammals, known as monotremes. The female lays a single soft-shelled, leathery egg 22 days after mating, and deposits it directly into her pouch. Hatching takes place after 10 days; the young echidna, called a puggle, then sucks milk from the pores of the two milk patches (monotremes have no nipples) and remains in the pouch for 45 to 55 days, at which time it starts to develop spines. The mother digs a nursery burrow and deposits the puggle, returning every five days to suckle it until it is weaned at seven months.
Male echidnas have a four-headed penis. During mating, the heads on one side “shut down” and do not grow in size; the other two are used to release semen into the female’s two-branched reproductive tract. The heads used are swapped each time the mammal copulates.
“I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, I only believe in pleasures. People who call reading detective fiction or eating dessert a guilty pleasure make me want to puke. Pedophilia is a pleasure a person should have guilt about. Not chocolate.” - Ira Glass, New York Times (Aug 16, 2012)
This is stuffing ridiculous.
