Oh noes!! The kolalas have gone all Lilith Fair!
Female koalas indulge in lesbian “sex sessions”, rejecting male suitors and attempting to mate with each other, sometimes up to five at a time, according to researchers.
The furry, eucalyptus-eating creatures appear to develop this tendency for same-sex liaisons when they are in captivity. In the wild, they remain heterosexual.
Scientists monitoring the marsupials with digital cameras counted three homosexual interactions for every heterosexual one.
I for one am waiting the imminent arrival of LezMarsupial.com, showing only the finest in hawt same-sex koala-on-koala action. My credit card is at the ready!
(No, LezMarsupial.com doesn’t really exist. But I bet by the end of the day, someone will register it.)
I have no reason for posting this. I just think it’s funny. Especially the headline for the story at the link: “Australia rocked by ‘lesbian’ koala revelation” Really? Rocked? Is Australia going to kick the koalas out of the house, so that they tearfully have to show up on New Zealand’s doorstep? Personally, I can’t imagine the Australians I know going anything other than “you go, situationally lesbian koalas!” Because the Australians I know are all cool like that.
Also, “Situationally Lesbian Koalas” is the name of my next band.
Update, 6:44pm: Look! It’s Lezmarsupial.com! No, I didn’t do it.
