18. I think this whole thing says a lot about behavior.

Not penguin behavior, but about human behavior, specifically about attitudes towards anything having to do with sexuality during Victorian/Edwardian times in England.

They created a weird bubble of uptight behavior about sex, and anything they observed outside of the perceived norm, which was basically try to pretend it didn't even exist, shocked them.
