Such a heart-warming story for these topsy-turvy times.

London Aquarium to Raise 'Genderless' Penguin
CNN, September 10, 2019
https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/10/europe/penguin-genderless-chick-intl-scli-gbr/ind...

A same-sex penguin couple will raise an adopted "genderless" chick for the first time, a London aquarium announced Tuesday.

The four-month-old Gentoo penguin chick will not be named or characterized as male or female, Sea Life London said.

The chick is being raised by two female penguins Rocky and Marama, who were given the egg to relieve the penguin's birth mother of the pressure of raising two chicks.

It will be "the world's first penguin to not have its gender assigned," Sea Life London said.

Experts at the aquarium usually give newborn penguins gender-based names, but in this case "decided it was more natural for the chick to grow and develop into a mature adult as genderless which is normal in the wild until they mature," the centre said in a press release. The chick has been fitted with a purple tag on its wing so it can be identified.


"While the decision may ruffle a few feathers, gender neutrality in humans has only recently become a widespread topic of conversation, however, it is completely natural for penguins to develop genderless identities as they grow into mature adults," said General Manager Graham McGrath.

The penguin may later be incorporated into Sea Life London's breeding program, "depending on the gender its biology determines," the aquarium added.

It's happened in nature for millions of years. Without these adoptions, the species would have likely gone extinct.

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.

Genderless?  No reproductive organs?
  

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

It's not "genderless".  It's gender will be known to people when it becomes an adult and its biological gender is known.  How can it be raised genderless when it's being raised by two female penguins.  They probably won't let it have guns and will force it to play with baby doll penguins.  Poor unhappy "genderless" penguin.  Dang, people can be idiots.  Stop trying to play God.  it is what it is.  Let it be.

"....depending on the gender its biology determines"...

Oops.  Don't the leftists preach that gender has nothing to do with biology? How was such heresy allowed in a CNN story?

How did anyone say that sentence with a straight face?

I'm no biologist, but I'm pretty sure the vast majority of penguins throughout their history as a species have not had a gender "assigned" to them at any point in their lives.

Then penguins must not have religion.

Sad.
  

What is the cost of lies? It's not that we'll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then? What else is left but to abandon the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories. In these stories it doesn't matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame. - V. Legasov

I'm pretty sure atheist humans have the ability to assign gender and do so quite often.
