come on standard. the comparison of what is "natural' for animals and humans is not a good one.
doesnt the female black widow kill her male partner?
not natural to us to do that, especially after mating! that would be considered SICK to humans.
dont snakes swallow their food whole w/o chewing?
not natural for us to do that. and for those that half chew their food, believe they have health problems that stem from it.
do humans have mating calls, sniff the air to locate a mate, or fight each other to have the honorable privilege of mating w/ the only female around?!?
if the answer is yes (enter comedians here), then that should show us jus how animalistic humans are getting, and thats why there are so many problems w/ them. they dont wanna live as humans!
and about hermaphrodites.......
i was just reading about this and how this situation fits in islam.
islam looks to the character of the person and the physical features. when he or she reaches puberty, it becomes known to the individual which way they are inclined to go, but they are not to go both ways simply b/c they have the MEANS TO. the OVERALL inclination of the person determines their status in society.
there was a hermaphrodite who used to be w/ the women in the time of the prophet muhammad. he was allowed to come and go amongst the women b/c everyone thought he had no inclination towards women. one day, muhammad overheard hm describing the shape of a woman, and from that day on, he was not allowed in the precincts of the women.
there was another man in the same time, that used to dye his hands and feet w/henna (this is something that only the women do). so he was brought to muhammad and he sent him to another town.
Allah says in the 2nd surah, Al-Baqarah(The Cow) 2.25: But give glad tidings to those who believe and work righteousness, that their portion is Gardens, beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are fed with fruits therefrom, they say: "Why, this is what we were fed with before," for they are given things in similitude; and they have therein companions pure (and holy); and they abide therein (for ever).
