The hardest question for me to answer in this world is always the "Tell us all about you" question. The best way for me to answer is that "I am composed of contradictions and subject to change without notice."

Gay Animal Kingdom

Believe her or don't, but Joan Roughgarden has a lot to say on how Darwin got it all wrong when it came to animal sexuality. She wrote a very interesting book called the Evolution's Rainbow giving examples of gay activities in the animal world. She was also interviewed by Seed which of course leads me to this quote from their article:
"After all, Darwin imagined sex as a relatively straightforward transaction. Males compete for females."
Personally, I can't speak for Darwin, but gay, straight or otherwise - sex has NEVER been a straight-forward transaction.

According to the article, Darwin also said:
"Evolutionary success is defined by the quantity of offspring."
Darwin never envisioned Brittney Spears.... if he had of he would have said quality - rather than quantity.

I doubt Darwin would have considered Britney and K-Fed to be the same species.
