RUSH: What a time of year for this story! I kid you not. “The world will soon witness another virgin birth, seven of them, actually. The Chester Zoo in northern England is home to Flora, a Komodo dragon. She’s managed to get pregnant without the participation of a male,” and at this point I know the ears of feminists have really perked up.
“Yet we were blown away when we realized what she’d done, said Kevin Buley, a reptile expert at the zoo, ‘but we certainly won’t be naming any of the hatchlings Jesus.'” Oh, how clever! “Virgin births are known to occur in about 70 animal species. It’s called parthenogenesis, where eggs become embryos without male fertilization. This is the first known for a Komodo dragon.”
So we have a dragon — Komodos are not fire breathing dragons at all, but — they can reproduce without a male. So I think for those of you doing graphics at the Limbaugh Letter, the Komodo dragon is the new mascot icon for the NAGs, the National Association of Gals, the NOW gang, you know, radical feminists? The Komodo dragon, virgin births, you don’t need men! The ultimate objective of the early feminist movement: “We don’t need no stinking men,” and the Komodo dragon gets that message across.
