Girls don’t always partner with boys.

Among western gulls, females often nest with females, forming a pair-bond that can last several years. The females perform courtship rituals with one another, mate, and incubate eggs together. Since both male and female gulls often mate with birds outside pair-bonds, some of the female pairs’ eggs can be fertile.

Sometimes girls have sex with girls.
