Is this a good tag?

    The tag is homosexual hamster - and I'm pretty pleased with it.

    Er.

    I hope it's OK to post that here, couldn't see which other forum it would be more appropriate for.

    Remember.  Constructive criticism only please.

      It's a pretty good tag, Mark, but remember that pornographic material is against adsense's terms and conditions.

        Thanks ThomasE - I will try to remember that.  But it gave me a chuckle, it shows on my - what is it - short list of three tags against stuff you've written - preview list or something.

        I am not a serious writer yet, but I am trying.

      It might get flagged as a deceptive tag.

      Just a thought. hmm

        Good point.  Although the 'article' is about gay animals and I could make a case for it.  Briefly.

          Homosexuality in animals? Why apply a human characteristic to that of an animal? It's absurd and only good if someone has a sense of humor.

          To think that animals have a conscious understanding of their own actions is absurd. Some animals display a kind of awareness, but nothing like human beings. Animals only react, they do not reason.

            Homosexuality is well documented in other animals. It is not limited to humans or even mammals.

            Nor does it require consciousness.

            Finally, reasoning in animals is also well documented.

            Why do you think homosexuality is human?  It just means 'sexual activity with conspecific of the same gender'.  Animals do that all the time.

    ? I think you may actually be bonkers.

    That is a great graffiti tag, or a good tag for a hub about rodent pets having a sexual identity crisis.

    Probaby will get Adsense scrubbed from your hub though as lady G is quite a prude smile

      Sheesh.  If I lose the adsense from that hub it just becomes the rant of an immature child - rather than a hard hitting piece of investigative journalism.

      What to do?

        Monetize it through Amazon? Though i dread to think what products they sell for  homosexual hamsters.

          Mark Ewbieposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Yeah, I just tried it.  There's cute little hamster toys and er other stuff.  I'm not sure how best to sell both lots of product on the same page.

          Maybe I'll give up on the idea.

          Hubs already out there (as it were) - I'll give it till tomorrow and if I haven't earned any money I'll go for the gay cat angle.

    Well if the UK news channels pick up on your hamster-sexuality journalism you may become a serious writer overnight. Looking forward to the 'Are killer gay hamsters taking over the UK?' Panorama program featuring Mark Ewbie on the BBC shortly.

      Yes Spacey - I am still learning lessons here!

    But check out your hubscore - putting me to shame. Here I am working my arse off earning hubpages $$$$s and I am rewarded with a paltry 92 - maybe I need to do some articles on my gender-confused tropical fish to get my score up - those pesky little swimmers are always pinching my lip gloss.
