Recently I saw this article on scientific american which caught my eyes: http://www.sciam.com/article.cfm?id=bisexual-species

It’s an article regarding bisexual behaviors in animals. What’s interesting about this article is that it seems to imply that it is not so uncommon for animals to engage in homosexual behavior (or what most people say: unnatural sex) as we think it is.

It appears that there is a likelihood that bisexual behavior is a natural state for these animals. In fact, animals do not actually have problems with sexual orientation. To them, that’s just sex. With heterosexual partners or otherwise isn’t that big a deal.

There’s more you can gain from this article but I don’t have time to pick them all out. (Have to start on work! boo.)

Do read the article! Have fun.

I got this interesting piece of news from my rss feed today:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Two separate teams of researchers announced on Tuesday they had transformed ordinary skin cells into batches of cells that look and act like embryonic stem cells — but without using cloning technology and without making embryos.

Hopefully this breakthrough would mean that the current debate about moral and ethical issues would become irrelevant. Anyway, do go read that link. There’s not alot of scientific jargon so it should be an easy and informative read.
