Stashed in: Science Too

A new species of hermaphrodite land snail found in Taiwan has been named in support of marriage equality.

Biologists christened the species Aegista diversifamilia, referring to a diversity of family types, because it "represents the diversity of sex orientation in the animal kingdom".

So this hermaphrodite snail... It marries itself?

:) Well, no.  As far as I know, animals don't marry.

Oh, right. Why do we have marriage?

And after the pace of achieving marriage equality.


Marriage equality now exists in 30 states. That's a majority.
