Where's P.E.T.A. on this? The Sandhill Crane, a large wading bird, is now designated by our Government to decorate homosexual veterans' gravestones, at individual request. Wanna bet how long it takes for the fish-eating bird to become a de-facto LGBT symbol, now that an activist LGBT veteran couple (the surviving half) wants it that way?
I'm a speciesist (believe in the primacy of the human species), but I'll be the first to admit that on the good-to-evil continuum, most lesser species score a solid good and humans have a problem there.
I haven't read that the Sandhill Crane is observed to be a homosexual creature, queerness is seldom noted in the lesser species, so where is the animal-rights justice in this decision?
Enquiring minds want to know.
