    My friend and I were having a conversation today and we came up with an interesting question...What exactly is wrong with having sex with an ape?

    yes a weird topic...but if you seriously think about it what makes it immoral to have sex with an ape or an animal of a different species....i mean not to say I plan to but...x_x

    The point is...what exact reason is against cross species breeding...I think it's been found that you cannot reproduce with another species...but if that's true then homosexuality is just as bad

    Sex amongst humans and by humans is based on the premise that both parties give consent to the other. It is the basis for statutory rape. By definition, a child under a certain age can not give consent - period. Sex with a minor under the statutory age is without consent and punishable by law. Sex with an adult who does not give consent is rape while with a child it is statutory rape (even if the child is willing).

    Likewise, an animal can not give consent so beastility is prohibited by law. It is not a matter of productive sex (cross-breeding) but of law.

    I fail to see the connection of your question to homosexual sex given the these facts Consent is the operative word with homosexuals as with heterosexuals.

    This is also a good line of reasoning as to why we should refrain from unnecessary animal slaughter. We have not the consent to have sex with animals, nor do we to kill them. In the case that it is necessary to kill them for food (perhaps if one lives in a desert) it is understandable, but there are plenty of other types of food available that do not require slaughtering.

    good point...it seems we don't judge other animals by the same ideas as we judge ourselves by

    what about apes having sex with other apes neither party can give consent...and all laws have been made by humans so how can we morally judge animals by our own standards? if they can't be judged by our own standards how can we say that they need to give consent, if sexual consent is purely a construct created by man... ...

    The connection to homosexuality is that homosexual couples cannot further the species by giving birth

    Actually, homosexuals males have about 50% of the rate of bearing children as heterosexuals; in women, it is higher (especially through artifical insemination). Japan's gays is much higher at 87%.

    But these facts are not the only factor in survival of the species. Homosexuals provide nurture for many children not their own, thus establishing or contibuting to a nuclear family.
