I was intending to be ironic, yes. "Fallen" bats and dolphins, and suchlike nonsense.

I read the remarks by Michael Bryson and John Leonard as ironic and thus not intended at the expense of gay men and women.

Bats see the world upside down and thus probably invert all values, but one expects better of dolphins . . .

                It might be time to note that such "aberrant behaviors" are not really aberrant, given that they are commonly found in the human species as well as a number of other mammalian species (including primates, bats, and others--similar activity has been observed in dolphins). I am, for a number of reasons, wary of Lewis' word "perversions," though I recognize that he would probably have considered himself a member in good standing of "certain circles." But that all relates "to the life we live."

                Though I suppose the Bats and Dolphins are fallen, sinful creatures given over wholly to lust


        O ye dolphins!
