Man Demands Ohio State Remove the Nickname "Buckeye" Since the Buckeye Tree is Bisexu
Just when you thought you had heard and seen it all, this story pops up. A man named Jim Flechtner wrote to the Findlay Courier in Ohio demanding that Ohio State University remove everything having to do with their affiliation to a buckeye. His reasoning? The buckeye plant is a polygamo-monoecious species, which means it possesses both male and female flowers, or in other words, it's a "bisexual."

Are you shaking your head right now? Well, why don't you take a look at the interesting letter explaining his rationale and revealing his findings.

Quote:Something in the “Just Ask” column (Page A3, May 29) disturbed me. According to the column, “the Ohio buckeye, Aesculus glabra, bears flowers with both male and female organs on the same tree. It is a monoecious species.”

I couldn’t believe this, so I did some research and, sure enough, a science website (forestry.about.com) states that “the Ohio buckeye is polygamo-monoecious, bearing both bisexual and male flowers.”

The buckeye is our state tree and most of us gladly wear the nickname, “buckeyes.” But it is shameful and unacceptable that a bisexual tree should represent us! We are flaunting the Holy Bible!

I urge everyone to contact their state representative and demand legislation removing the buckeye as our state tree and condemning the use of the term “buckeye” as a nickname for residents of Ohio.

Does anyone know if carnations are bisexual?

Jim Flechtner, Findlay

I may be wrong but I thought all plants contained both male and female parts.

You are not wrong, not completely that is. Most of the plants have this kind of reproductive system:

While some other are separated, for example, Cannabis has male and female plants. Oh look, so Cannabis is a true Bible plant, not bisexual, but normal, Christian-sexual-Bible-following plant. One more reason to legalize it. God is telling that to us.

Someone who doesn't know the difference between 'flaunting' and 'flouting' loses the argument.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Tis satire, my friends. As an OSU man, I had to look into it.

Your dirty pictures offend.

Your beliefs do not make you a better person, your behavior does.
