Even the animal kingdom isn’t safe from the forces of political correctness. A male gorilla who doesn’t seem to want to associate with other gorillas is being sent to therapy in order to combat his “sexism”.
I admits its been a while since I took a biology class, but aren’t male gorillas supposed to be aggressive and very territorial to begin with? No matter how much the Left thinks that they can try to change nature, it will always come back to blow up in their faces.
The term “sexist” is just about as meaningless as “racism” since they are both used by the Left as control words in order to silence their enemies.
If being anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white, then shouldn’t anti-sexist be a code word for anti-male?
A male gorilla is leaving Dallas Zoo to have therapy after he bit one female gorilla and sneered at others.
Patrick, a 195-kilogram Western lowland gorilla, will be moving to the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens in Columbia, South Carolina, where he will live the bachelor life in his own digs.
The South Carolina zoo is known for working with gorillas with behavioural problems.
Dallas Zoo officials said Patrick gets along fine with humans but not with other gorillas.
They said they have repeatedly tried to get him to socialise with the other gorillas, particularly the females, in the hope that he might get along and even breed.
Instead, he bit one female and sneered and nipped at others.
“It’s not like we haven’t tried, he’s been here for 18 years,” Dallas Zoo spokeswoman Laurie Holloway said.
Patrick was more tolerant of other male gorillas but seemed only to engage with Jabari, who was shot to death by Dallas police after he escaped in 2004 and injured three people.
Because of his cranky behaviour, Patrick has been kept in his own habitat separate from the other gorillas.
The Dallas Zoo needs to reclaim Patrick’s space because it recently acquired two new males from the Calgary Zoo, including Zola, a breakdancing gorilla who stars in a video that has gone viral on the internet.
John Davis, curator of mammals at the Riverbanks Zoo, said Patrick will initially be separated from the zoo’s three other gorillas, all males, but will be able to see and smell them.
Patrick will eventually be introduced to the other males and zoo officials are not ruling out the possibility they can live together in a spacious bachelor pad, Mr Davis said.
Born at the Bronx Zoo in 1990, Patrick was abandoned by his mother and transferred to the Toronto Zoo, where he was hand-raised along with another male about the same age.
At age 5 he was transferred to Dallas, zoo officials said.
Because of his rearing, Patrick gets along well with people and is a popular favourite among visitors and zookeepers at the zoo, Ms Holloway said.
“He’s beautiful and smart and everyone loves him,” she said.
“We’re really sad to see him go but it’s for the best for the zoo and for Patrick.”
