Here’s a video sent by an anonymous reader. Yes, of course it’s a parody, but it has a sting in its tail.
The only comment I’d add is Faux-Attenborough’s wondering why a genderfluid lion would have an evolutionary advantage from mating with a hyena? Well, it wouldn’t of course, but lots of sexual behavior in our species has no evolutionary explanation, including homosexuality. Just because something doesn’t have an evolutionary advantage doesn’t mean it doesn’t occur, or that pointing it out is some kind of faux pas.
But what about the video’s claim that “there is no gender binary.” What about a strong bimodality with intermediates, which is what it seems like to me.
Do you think the video is in poor taste?
