Appeal to Nature
The appeal to nature is when you decide that some thing is "natural" and therefore better than some other thing that you judge as not natural.
The first problem with this logic is that the word "natural" is often vague and one person's opinion of what is natural could be different from another's. The second problem is that natural organisms evolved for their own benefit, most could care less about humans, and some would kill us given the opportunity. Naturalness is no guarantee of goodness.
Don't eat that processed apple sauce! Eat these potato chips - they're all natural and organic so they're healthier.
If you think humans are meat-eaters then try eating the animal raw like every other meat-eater on the planet. If something is not palatable in its raw state then you probably shouldn't be eating it.
Out of trillions of organisms that were alive at the beginning of time, are alive now and will be alive at the end of time, only one tampers with its food. You do not want to bet against those kinds of odds.
I truly cannot imagine men with men, women with women, doing what they were not physically created to do, without abnormal stress and misbehavior.

Come home to the impossible flavor of your own completion. Come home to Simple Rick's.Context: Rick and Morty season 3 episode 9 - The Ricklantis Mixup
