If it’s a common occurrence in humans, it’s natural, and if it’s not, it’s unnatural.It doesn’t matter which of the two definitions you use; either one makes for a flawed argument against homosexuality.The first definition If you’re using the first definition, you’re claiming that things that occur in nature are, well, natural, and anything that doesn’t occur is an abomination.
A major breach of logic with this argument is the assumption that humans are not part of nature. They reproduce by parthenogenesis, a form of asexual reproduction.
If you’re using nature as a standard for measuring things that are normal or abnormal, then naturally anything humans do must be included because we part of nature. What’s curious about this species is that they still undergo a courtship, or more appropriately “mock mating”.
We tend to think we’re a separate entity (perhaps due to a misconception that we are divine or somehow better than nature), but there is no way of proving that. It’s a species of lizard found in New Mexico (hence the name), Arizona and northern Mexico. One of the females plays the role of the male to stimulate ovulation in the (other) female. Many types of lizards and insects do this regularly, with insects having a wide variety of mechanisms for parthenogenesis.
As if dating wasn't a challenge in itself, add in a newly divorced man and you may feel unsure how to handle this potentially dramatic relationship.
As of 2009 there were more than 1 million divorced men in the U. If your guy is newly divorced, understanding how to handle his situation can help to prevent problems.
Homosexuality stirs up a lot of controversy in some social constructs and religious beliefs systems.
Many of these systems come up with a bunch of reasons to question homosexuality as normal, attaching it to concepts like sin and blaming it as a cause of sexual diseases.
There are many such misconceptions and at the root of them all is ignorance.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that homosexuality is not natural, and that because of this marriage and sexual relations should be between a man and a woman.
When an individual uses the above argument that homosexuality is not natural, there are a few definitions of natural that may apply. existing in or formed by nature (as opposed to artificial); based on the state of things in nature; constituted by nature In this sense, nature dictates what is ordinary and from that you can determine what is abnormal or unnatural. as is normal or to be expected; ordinary or logical These two definitions are well related and it’s a probable use of the word “natural”.
If it occurs in nature, it’s acceptable, and if it doesn’t, it’s not acceptable. In this sense, things that are natural are only things that are normal or expected out of human nature.
