The book, ‘And Tango Makes Three’, is a children’s book based on a true story of Roy and Silo, two male penguins in New York’s Central Park Zoo who for six years formed a couple. The book follows part of this time in the penguins’ lives. The pair were observed trying to hatch a rock that resembled an egg. When zookeepers realized that Roy and Silo were both male, it occurred to them to give them the second egg of a mixed-sex penguin couple, a couple which had previously been unable to successfully hatch two eggs at once. Roy and Silo hatched and raised the healthy young chick, a female named “Tango” by keepers, together as a family.
This book is banned because it features two same sex penguins raising a penguin together. It’s shit like this that I hate about the world we live in.
BUT IT’S SO FUCKING ADORABLE… WHAT THE FUCK?!
Having trouble forming words. Anger + adoration mixing has left me with little comprehensibility.
I NEED TO READ THIS.
But seriously though, stop banning books about gay couples when I know 10 year olds who play Call of Duty. I’m pretty sure they can handle it.
