And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell has been on the American Library Associations (ALA) list of the most complained about books for five years.

It topped the list in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

They attempted to hatch a rock, which was replaced by a rejected egg from a mixed gender couple by zookeepers.


Australians predict legal gay marriage as poll shows majority support

Of the 37 per cent who were against the change, 16 per cent were opposed and 21 per cent were strongly opposed.

The survey of 1,400 people was carried out by Nielsen and Fairfax newspapers. It follows a recent poll by gay rights groups which found that 62 per cent of the public want marriage equality.

Greens leader Bob Brown told reporters today that he believed the change would take place while Julia Gillard, who is opposed, remains prime minister.

 Chlamydia

Chlamydia is one of the most common STIs. Most people who have Chlamydia don’t notice any symptoms and won’t know they have the infection. Otherwise, symptoms may include pain when you urinate or unusual discharge.
