Joan Cardenas Findley Phil. 003 Response Paper 2 31 October 2007 Cornivo and Homosexuality In the past, individuals having homosexual relationships and encounters was considered a taboo. Today, the issue of homosexuality is better accepted, but the morality of having relationships and sexual encounters is greatly debated. Is engaging in intercourse and having intimate relationships with the same sex bad? In John Corvino’s article “Why Shouldn’t Tommy and Jim Have Sex? A Defense of Homosexuality” (Mappes and Zembaty, 183-190), Corvino believes and defends that homosexuality is not “unnatural”, not harmful for both persons in a relationship, and not harmful to kids. According to the people who are against homosexuality, being homosexual is “unnatural”. Corvino begs to differ. Homosexuality not being the norm of society has nothing to do with homosexuality being unnatural and immoral. Corvino states, “So while homosexuality might be unnatural in the sense of being unusual, the fact is morally irrelevant”(Corvino, 184). Although something is different, it does not necessarily mean that it is wrong, morally bad, or unnatural. People do not choose to be homosexual.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
