God Hates Elephants

A conservative Polish politician has some harsh words for his local zoo, which purchased a supposedly homosexual elephant for its new elephant-housing facility. "We didn't pay 37 million zlotys ($11 million) for the largest elephant house in Europe to have a gay elephant live there," Michal Grzes said. It's not that he hates the idea of man-on-man elephant sex, it's just that he feels the zoo should be purchasing elephants in order to breed a herd. Also, he hates man-on-man elephant sex. Methinks he doth protest too much? Regardless of whether Grzes is himself sexually attracted to male elephants, zookeepers say that it's a little premature to declare this particular elephant gay. Sure, it loves on other dudes right now, but it's only a 10-year-old child. Elephants don't reach sexual maturity until 14. So, this could just be a youthful phase similar to what Michal Grzes went through at his childhood summer camp. More details here.
