University Study Slams Zoos for Promoting Binary Notions of Gender

I am not making this up.

The study says that adults seem to want to characterize zoo animals according to “binary” gender terminology, forcing the camels and penguins and elephants of this world to conform to either “male” or “female,” even though those particular zoo animals haven’t truly examined whether they would like to identify as their birth gender. Although zoology does allow for checking the actual sex of an animal, adults should, apparently, refrain from referring to zoo animals as a “girl” or a “boy,” unless they’ve asked the said animals.

Another problem: Parents tend to use zoo exhibits to model traditional family roles. The study says “adults mobilize zoo exhibits as props for modeling their own normative gender displays.”

The left, literally, has nothing better to do.

  3. Wait, wait, wait….they are upset….because zoos are saying….that most animals….display purely male/female characterists….and that promotes….normative displays? In other words, they are concentrating on what is NORMAL?????????

    Someone put these people to work picking up litter or something. They don’t have the brains to be in a University.

  4. Although zoology does allow for checking the actual sex of an animal, …..

    Boycott zoology !!!!

    Ban zoology !!!!

    We need safe places to shelter us from zoology !!!!

    Anyone who believes in zoology is a homophobic, xenophobic, androphobic, neophobic, gymnophobic, tyrannophobic, gynophobic misogynistic, misandristic, racist pervert.

  5. “… pairs of male elephants to be released into the forests of America. There it is hoped that they will grow in number and the people can tame them and use them as beasts of burden.”

    “But your majesty, I don’t think you mean pairs of male elephants.”

  9. #7 is it any different that rich snobby liberals paying thousands of dollars for the crap that passes as art these days?

  10. There’s differently a metaphor there; lots of sexual displays, loud shrieking, juvenile acting-out, hierarchical-preening and poo-tossing. …And that’s just in the Zoo’s food court.

  12. 11. Actually taxpayers pay for a good amount of art, not even counting that “modern” art is used for money laundering.
