well i was guessing by coloration and shape but maybe i was wrong all along. the one has always been kept away from the other two, but this morning he/she was slapping tails w/ the other m/f. males never do this then?

How do you even know they were getting it on if you are not sure which is male or female?

i've seen the vids of them mating, like i said, i thought all along the one p was a male. I've read that the females are more colorful and thicker and the males are duller in color and more slender, so that's what i was going by. i guess it is too hard to tell...that was the first time i had seen the two do that, it had always been the other two, while the third was kept in a corner.

i don't recall ever hearing about homosexuality in the animal kingdom...i don't think it exists.

It does exist. What species you ask? They are commonly referred to as Human Beings in the animal Kingdom.


Thats my two cents.

Yeah, there's a pair in New York that they were planning on breaking up...I forget the whole details, but they had been a major tourist attraction and were even mentioned on "Will and Grace".

the monkeys are not homosexual. they just have different social traits of interaction.
The monkeys use sex as a way of establishing dominance and heres the key that destroys the whole gay aspect. To attract a mate of the oppisite sex.

The bonobo is more accurately termed "bisexual" if one has to put one of three labels on them...

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=031...ttbidstrupshoA/ is supposed to be a good read on the issue at hand. A review: http://www.salon.com/it/feature/1999/03/cov_15featurea.html

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/20..._gayanimal.html has a decent overview of the issue, as do http://www.bidstrup.com/sodomy.htm and http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15750604/.

NARTH presents an opposing viewpoint (which is somewhat self-serving, given what NARTH stands for, but I offer it in the spirit of fairness): http://www.narth.com/docs/animalmyth.html
