“Watching animals not have sex”

“I’ve spent a lot of my career watching animals not have sex.”

—University of California Riverside biologist Marlene Zuk, quoted in the New York Times Magazine article “Can Animals be Gay?

NOTE: For reasons unclear (perhaps reflecting the persistent influence of puritanism?), the Times article does not mention Kees Moeliker’s Ig Nobel Prize-winning study “The First Case of Homosexual Necrophilia in the Mallard Anas platyrhynchos (Aves: Anatidae)”.
