A 14-year-old New Zealand teen fears
ducks could rule the world if gay marriage is legalized.
The teen, identified by Gawker.com as
Jasmin, explains her reasoning in a letter to the editor of New
Zealand's Northern Outlook.
“If homosexuality spreads, it can
cause human evolution to come to a standstill. It could threaten the
human position on the evolutionary ladder, and say, ducks, could take

will be in danger of all being equal, with ducks more equal than us,”
Jasmin added that she is concerned
about her children competing with ducks.
“If you believe in evolution, you
can't be in favor of homosexuality, or the ducks will get you in the

New Zealand lawmakers are expected to
bill which would legalize gay nuptials on the island nation. The
relationships of gay couples are currently recognized by the
government with civil unions.
