Sad news…..

Political Penguin Would Know Not To Open Its Beak – Chicago Tribune

Roy and Silo, the two famous gay penguins at New York’s Central Park Zoo, are no longer a pair. Silo has gone straight.

They broke up after six years together. Once, they were provided a donated egg. They sat on it and hatched it and this was celebrated as some kind of penguin lifestyle choice in the New York Times on Feb. 7, 2004, under the headline “The Love that Dare Not Squeak Its Name.”

But that’s so over.

  1. How long before the “ex-gay” crowd latches onto this?

  2. Oh, so putting up a thread on formerly gay penguins is more important than John Roberts calling the EEOC “un-American”! So gay penguins are more important than attacking Bush for… whatever we’re supposed to attack him for today! So gay penguins are more important than Britney Spears giving her kid the initials P.M.S.! You patsies should only post things I think are important! Even if 50,000 leftwing blogs have already said them!

    Just getting that out of the way.

  3. You know it’s a shame that our society could be so threatening to homosexuals that even Roy and Silo couldn’t make it work. I really was hoping for the best for those two kids. 🙁

    Oh, and this is probably Bush’s fault.

  5. As reported on my blog several weeks ago, this is actually old news as of about a year.

    Silo attempted repairative therapy but the girl got wise to his business and moved on. Roy and Silo simply live as singles now.

  6. Why am I not surprised that GayCow has all the dirt on this?

  7. Are we supposed to be surprosed that a Gay couple CAN’T make a long-term, monogomous relationship work??? Even in the animal world, this is par for the course. Gee, I hope this doesn’t dampen the chances of a “gay marriage” initiative passing among the rest of the animal inmates inside the Bronx Zoo.

  8. Well I for one still support the gay marriage initiative in the Bronx Zoo. Why shouldn’t animals be free to marry whomever they want. Male or female. As long as they keep it in their species (yuck).

    Long live gay penguins.

  9. They were just close friends, nothing more. Silo CHOSE to be straight just as all homos choose to be so. Besides we are not animals and their behaviour doesn’t mean its right.

  10. It can’t work because they are not matched physically proper. Try to plumb a house the same way. Male and female must dominate for people to last. Otherwise the earth will be depleted of the human race. AIDS will kill any remaining ones.
