Let me begin by noting your clearly invalid move from the supposed naturalness of sex-having to its moral acceptability. Murder, rape, gambling, and rap music may very well be natural to the human condition, but obviously no rational person would conclude that they are therefore morally appropriate.

Beyond your logical failing, though, is your factual error in supposing that everyone who condemns sex-having deems himself to be "high and mighty." I am no saint. There are times when I am more Dionysius than Apollo--days when my appetite gets the better of my intellect. You presumably don't deem yourself "high and mighty" when you deign to condemn murders and thieves, do you?



You included rap music alongside murder... I'm starting to wonder if you have ever tried any of the things you find "morally reprehensible." Perhaps you could kill two birds with one stone by listening to rap music while you rail a chick. (You might find they are different than you think)

Oh believe you me I have heard rap music. My roommate blasts that malarkey 16 hours a day. If I have to hear Jay-Rule or M&M rhyme about their problems while I solve complex legal problems one more time, I might snap. But that's just natural, so it's morally OK right?

This is a scene straight out of the movie "How High."

Sir,

Think you're pretty hip huh? Fancy yourself a real Shirley Temple? You strike me as the sort of fellow who reads People Magazine and watches a lot of the E! Network. Good for you man, good for you.

Other poasters--Any other questions about the most prestigious law school since the Lyceum?

Can the OP prove that he comes from Yale? Here OP, a challenge: post a picture of Amy Chua's office, or something to that effect that can help us believe that you are at least from around Yale. If you want, take a picture of any of your syllabi from this semester, and you can blur out all the copyrighted material (if there is any). If taking pictures is too hard, then you can take a screenshot of any site on Yale's intranet (ie Facebook page). I'm guessing if you have ample time to "pour diarrhea over [TLS] day and night" (Putin, 2012), then you could try to at least prove that you are a YLS student. I'm just not buying that the OP is a YLS student--I would expect Yalies to have more to do than to post crap online.

So far everyone from YLS in this thread comes off a bit douchey and pretentious.

(Which might mean they are lovely people IRL).

We have received a plethora of reports of off-topic remarks.

If you guys wanna discuss your sexual desires, or lack thereof, take it to the lounge.

Please get back on topic or this thread will be locked.

Just a note: I am very skeptical that the OP is a Yale Law student. If anyone sees him fielding anymore questions on Yale, please report it.
