Silly political correctness....

Just when you thought that political correctness couldn't get any silier.
PHILLIP Island's iconic fairy penguins have been renamed "little penguins" in Queensland to avoid offending the gay community.

In an act of political correctness gone overboard, Sea World theme park operators on the Gold Coast changed the name of their star attraction to avoid being "offensive".

Rebecca Smith, spokeswoman for Sea World, confirmed: "We didn't want to upset the gay community.

"We didn't have any complaints about the name of the penguins, but someone thought it could be seen as offensive so we decided to change it to little penguin instead.
This is so silly, that I'm speechless.

Is someone going to rewrite all the fairy tales too?

Won't the penguins still feel marginalized by being called little!?

Poor penguins. Tastes like chicken.
