Cute, but I can't help feeling this is detrimental to moving ideas forward?

We understand gender as a social construct and it's not something penguins have any awareness of. I don't see the point of doing this other than to create a sensational story to just draw promo and headlines for this aquarium :shrug: and in the long run is gunna be used by certain groups of people to make a mockery out of anyone who isn't cisgendered.

Like when people did the whole "I iDeNtIfY aS aN AtTaCk HeLiCoPtEr" thing, now they can make comments about how even penguins can be non-binary blah blah. I guess what I'm saying is it trivialises something serious and real into something gimmicky for the sake of profit?

Maybe I'm being to negative :selena:

I just did. 

It's still a total construction. 

A penguin is a male penguin or a female one. 

Not naming a penguin doesn't negate its gender. 

It's applying a human construction onto an animal... which is just weird tbh.

Applying human construction to these animals is putting them in zoos in the first place.... "Genderless" is completely normal in the animal kingdom as animals have to adapt anyway... Of course sex is significant, but it's actually a good thing imo.

Just humans projecting their politics and feelings on animals.  

Well this is the opposite of what is happening here.

They just aren't telling you the penguins gender. The fact that your brain can't comprehend gender not being important is the societal problem here. Not telling you the gender of the penguin is not a problem at all until you get mad about it.

I did not say its a problem that they arent telling me the gender of an animal, I simply said they are doing it to project on animals.

Genderless lmao. Okay. Animals have no concept of gender, they just are what they are. 

Also I think it's cool that a lot of zoos are advertising their same-sex penguin parent pairs as a LGBT celebration :) It's pretty common for penguins and happening at all sorts of zoos around the world! I think my po-dunk town got our first Penguin Gaybie recently too and it was a big party

How can I protect something so perfect without evil?

Now this is stupid and just a PR stunt to get people to visit the damn zoo...

A penguin isnt aware of genders and sexuality terms...flops...they arent humans who make up sh*t

I mean idk what you’re referring to, but as far as I know none of her kids have kids so she isn’t a grandmother.

Umm... can animals even have gender identity? Gender dysphoria? Why even do this if it’s not proven.

Let us have our lgbtqia penguins!

Except that's literally the opposite of what is happening.

Unless you are a biologist, it's not relevant in any way. Gendering animals is that actual projection.
