Your Dog: Legosexual or Just Plain Gay?

Former kosher butcher and Berkeley J-School alumnus Jon Mooallem gayed it up [1] last week on “The Colbert Report.” His recent article in the New York Times Magazine entitled “Can Animals Be Gay? [2]” chronicles the homosexual advances observed in some 450 nonhuman species. We’re talking lesbian albatrosses. Er … Lesbatrosses? Albatresbians? Female koalas shacking up. Male dolphins, you know, sipping Cosmos in the Castro dressed like Lady Gaga.

Despite identifying as a straight human himself, Mooallem’s article offers a provocative contribution to queer theory.
