Skip to comments.Queer Results: Mercury in Diet Turns Birds Gay
Posted on 12/18/2010 1:58:38 PM PST by indcons
If the birdlife on earth didnt have enough to worry about, like dwindling habitats, air pollution and the hostile ecosystem of cities, they now have the added perplexity of going gay. A study conducted by researchers from the University of Florida and Peradeniya University in Sri Lanka found that relatively low doses of methylmercury in the diet of male ibises resulted in their pairing up with each other, snubbing the females, to the extent of building nests together (in other words, moving in together).
Methylmercury has been seeping into groundwater from industries for ages now.

"Alright, so humans may not be affected, but the question most bird lovers would be asking is: can this effect be reversed, can gay birds become straight again
The answer: 'We do not know! Unfortunately, our study ran out of funding before we could do the necessary experiments to determine this,' says Frederick."
I can't imagine why.
See? It’s an illness.
Who is Freddie Mercury for $100, Alex.
You hit downright hilarious on the first reply.
Who can compete with that ??
LOL - excellent
Well, this sounds like a perfect project for a congressional earmark. We'll see how long the earmark ban lasts. Just get in touch with Florida's Senator Nelson.
Who was Freddie Mercury for a three dollar bill, Alex.
I hope my blue birds come back at least the straight ones I bought them a new house.
Proves again, homosexuality is a sickness.
I was thinking more along the lines of the original Mercury...
Do they still use mercury in rectal thermometers?
Ya reckon all those curly-que Chinese light bulbs now in our land fills and Lord knows where else will contribute to the demise of the bird population?
Mommy took their temperature a lot when they were kids.
Trivia question of the day....what’s Freddy Mercury’s real name. You must show how your answer was achieved
First person that logs on to Wikepedia get’s ZOTTED!.
He shoots, he scores!
OOOH, Deethuth! My fiilligth are coming out.!!
At least he didn’t get braces. Think what that would have done to him? (sarc)
I know his first name is Farreek. Other that I know from being a life long fan of his and I am not gay.
Mercury exposure can cause aggressiveness, mood swings, and anti-social behavior. Like most gay people I know. So could it be that we have so many gays this generation because of vaccines?
Perhaps those anti-vaccine people weren’t so crazy.
(adding the disclaimer that my children were vaccinated.)
Birdsss are gay becaussse of all the feathersssss...sssilly...
Strange, all it took was an act of Congress to turn our military queer.
Never bothered to wash `em off.
Now all I do is chase women 24/7.
Well, it at least seems plausible and would explain why animals haven’t “bred out” gayness to date.
“Now all I do is chase women 24/7.”
If you’re male, Arsenic and DDT would do that to you - Mercury on the other hand....
Good Lord! Thousands of queer starlings out in my back yard?
That'll thin the population.
That's OK so long as you're not a woman.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
“Ya reckon all those curly-que Chinese light bulbs now in our land fills and Lord knows where else will contribute to the demise of the bird population?”
Maybe so, but now we know why the govt forced mecury lightbulbs on everyone!
The florist thing was a clue.
Farrokh Bulsara, pretty close my friend. I believe he was born in Zanzibar but I could be mistaken.
Yes he was born in Zanzibar to parents of Iranian descent.
He is of Parsi descent - not Iranian Muslim though. His family was originally from India (India has the largest population of Parsis, who have been persecuted and eradicated from their native Iran).
Just wait until the results are in from all those screw shaped light bulbs...
Thousands get molested and only a few manifest it as homosexuality. Homosexuality is a form of permanent sexual immaturity. It was and remains a sexual deviancy and a psychological disorder, despite opposite claims.
Take a listen here and learn how homosexuality came to be removed from the list of sexual deviancies by the American Psychiatric Association (APA): http://www.thisamericanlife.org/sites/all/play_music/play_full.php?play=204
It had nothing to do with science. It was an emotional and political act manipulated by a secret cabal of homosexual activists.
