E contra naturii se scrie pe pereți, zilele acestea, în așteptarea unui referendum care reduce familia la organele sexuale ale omului. Și până când familia tradițională va defini și natura în Constituție, oamenii de știință au arătat că homosexualitate se regăsește la foarte multe specii de animale. Homofobia, însă, nu. Am putea să spunem că homofobia este contra naturii, dar nu spunem, lăsăm la latitudinea fiecăruia să o definească.
Arătăm însă niște video drăgălașe cu pinguini, girafe, lei, rinoceri, gorile, lebede, tauri care sunt gay. Cum au putut să supraviețuiască aceste specii atâta timp în lipsa unor legi clare care să le explice cine cu cine are voie să își facă cuib sau să hoinărească prin savană? Ce au simțit puii lor când au văzut astfel de comportamente ciudate prin pădure?
În fine, după ce am pregătit terenul cu drăgălășenii, trecem la oameni. Și la intoleranță. Și la drepturile oamenilor. Și la normalitate.

How Same-Sex Partnerships Work in the Animal Kingdom

Explainer: Can Animals Be Homophobic?
Homosexual behavior has been documented in hundreds of animal species, but the same does not hold for gay-bashing. For starters, few animals are exclusively gay. Two female Japanese macaques might have playful sex with each other on Tuesday, and then mate with males on Wednesday. Pairs of male elephants sometimes form years-long companionships that include sexual activity, while their heterosexual couplings tend to be one-night stands. For many species, gay sex doesn't make them gay, so the concept of homophobia doesn't apply.
Members of nonhuman species have been known to shun others in their social groups on account of certain specific behaviors. Unwanted advances, homosexual or otherwise, might warrant harsh treatment; it just hasn't been documented. And there's no evidence that policing of sexual behavior exists. A male dog mounted by another male dog might reject the coupling, but there's no sign that it takes any more offense than would a female dog that's not in heat. Researchers believe that gay sex is even rewarded in certain species. For bonobos, sexual activity is an instrument of social harmony: It reinforces bonds and keeps the peace. For instance, when a female bonobo migrates into a new group, she often ingratiates herself to the clan's other ladies by having a lot of sex with them. Far from being shunned, this homosexual behavior is apparently welcomed.
Olly Alexander Growing Up Gay BBC Documentary 2017

As the outspoken frontman of British band Years and Years - who have seen a phenomenal rise to fame - Olly is a powerful voice on mental health, bullying and LGBT+ rights. He has broken taboos with music videos that celebrate queer identities and spoken openly about his own sexuality as well as his ongoing struggles with anxiety. Olly joins young people on their journeys battling issues that parallel his own - from homophobic bullying to eating and anxiety disorders - and asks what can be done to address them.
