Doves of Peace spokesBird Georgina Golub has a bone to pick with The Park’s internet dating services.
In a interview on AVN Radio this morning, Golub, who has served with the Doves of Peace for five years, took both CyBird Dating Services and GanderMatch.com to task, blaming them for jeopardizing the family structure of her species and others.
“We [Doves] are monogamous. At least, that’s the way it always was until these services popped up in The Park and threatened our way of life,” she said.
Golub, who plans to migrate next week along with her two youngest, said over the past few years she’s seen far too many Avian families break up after migration season ends.
“We leave our males behind to take care of things here and that’s never been a problem until the past few years,” she said. “These services encourage them to look for companionship while their mates are away and we don’t intend to stand for it any longer.”
Both CyBird Dating Services and GanderMatch.com were founded by Cesar Emilio Gander, whose brother Manuel assumed the reins of both companies after Gander’s untimely death in 2009.
In a statement released after the interview was broadcast, Manuel Gander defended the integrity of his two companies, writing, “We would like to stress that we are first and foremost mating services, which are used to bring together Birds who are interested in establishing and raising a family together. From time to time, some of our clients may misrepresent themselves or their intentions and while we do not agree with their behaviour, we are not responsible for their decisions,” the statement said.
