i really adore natalie portman, she is just so rad. she’s smart, crazy wise for her age, graduated from harvard, she started star wars episode one at 16, she’s an amazing actress, she’s hilarious, not to mention she is insanely gorgeous. i think she is by far the most beautiful woman i’ve ever seen.
While reading through my Philosophy textbook, I came across an article on homosexuality that I found very insightful. The following is an excerpt from that article which struck me as an especially good point.
“Another technical sense of natural is that something is natural and so, good, if it fulfills some function in nature. Homosexuality on this view is unnatural because it allegedly violates the function of genitals, which is to produce babies. One problem with this view is that lots of bodily parts have lots of functions and just because some one activity can be fulfilled by only one organ (say, the mouth for eating) this activity does not condemn other functions of the organ to immorality (say, the mouth for talking, licking stamps, blowing bubbles, or having sex). So the possible use of the genitals to produce children does not, without more, condemn the use of the genitals for other purposes, say, achieving ecstasy and intimacy.”
