Only in San Francisco...

Well, according to the AP, not really unique to S.F.

Penguin Love Triangle: gay penguin ditches partner of 7 years to get laid.
At the San Francisco Zoo, Harry left male partner Pepper for Linda. ... The blogosphere has been buzzing for days over the perky widow who stole the handsome gay guy from his longtime partner.

She's been called a "home wrecker" and the sobriquet that rhymes with witch, and lambasted as a wretch "who only lives for her own happiness, no matter who gets hurt."

Cherchez la femme notwithstanding, the saga of Linda and Harry and poor, cuckolded Pepper has ignited a fierce debate about whether homosexuality is a choice. Even People magazine has called for details.

I would think it funny, if I didn't think these people were serious about their emotional outrage on behalf of ... a penguin?

This sounds like anthropomorphizing in the extreme. And they're clearly using it to fight a human battle (aren't I clever?!). But it also strikes me that some people have too much time on their hands....
