Same sex marriage has been a hot topic in the news lately, as well as in the political arena. Marriage between a man and a man or a woman and a woman are felt by many to be morally wrong, but is it really? Or do these people fear the unknown and are using morality as the excuse for their negligence of the unknown? The utilitarian follow the utilitarian moral guide lines in their beliefs utilitarian’s would not be against same sex marriages. However if the Ethical egoist follows their moral guide lines then it is believed that they would be against ...view middle of the document...
” (Thiroux and Krasemann 2009 page 317). My experience with the few gay and lesbian couples, as well as the single gay and lesbians I am friends with; there is nothing unnatural with the love and bonds they have formed with each other. I have also never experienced anything perverse about them either. So, I feel unless you know every gay and lesbian person how can you make such claims or even push your beliefs onto others that don’t feel the same way as you do. I don’t like tomatoes, so does that mean everyone in my family can’t like tomatoes either?
Studies among animals in zoos and a very surprising number of them show signs or exhibit homosexual acts. Elephants, “African and Asian males will engage in same-sex bonding and mounting. Such encounters are often associated with affectionate interactions, such as kissing, trunk intertwining, and placing trunks in each other’s mouths.” (Bagemihl, Biological Exuberance, 1999 page 427-430). I feel animals are a big part of creating the laws of nature, so if elephants are engaging in homosexual activity how is it against the laws they set? “Male giraffes have been observed to engage in remarkably high frequencies of homosexual behavior. After aggressive “necking”, it is common for two male giraffes to caress and court each other, leading up to mounting and climax. Such interactions between males have been found to be more frequent than heterosexual coupling.” (Coe, “Necking” behavior in the giraffe.” Journal of Zoology 1967).

To me giraffes go about their homosexual behavior just as lovingly as two human adults would. “Both male and female lions have been seen to interact homosexually. Male lions pair-bond for a number of days and initiate homosexual activity with affectionate nuzzling and caressing, leading to mounting and thrusting.” (Bagemihl, Biological Exuberance, 1999 page 302-305). The king of the jungle interacts homosexually, but yet humans who have the ability to reason can get past it being gross and abnormal. People need to get over there fear of the unknown and get past what they are uncomfortable with and leave these people be. Homosexually in the wild and in everyday human life isn’t unnatural or against and laws of nature. These studies prove that. And for all we know this has been going on since the dawn of time, so I feel its time to move past the lame excuses and let these animals and people live their lives the way they see fit. They aren’t hurting anyone, leave them be.
All these animals and many more, live this way in nature, then it is unseen how it can be “against” the moral laws of nature. Just like the religious pursuit of proving that there is a God there is no solid proof that laws of nature exist. Based upon the...
