People can be born with, or develop, defects and disorders. Some are physical and some are mental or emotional.
If I "prefer" to drink alcohol night and day, and I like it that way, is that a normal behavior or a defect?' Is my liver designed to process that much alcohol?
If I prefer to gorge myself on food and become grossly overweight, is this a healthy and normal behavior, merely a "preference" for a perfectly good, but not mainstream "lifestyle"? Is my body designed to handle that much food?
Maybe I have handwashing OCD. Or maybe I'm a "cutter". Or I'm bulimic. Am I hurting myself? If I like doing it, does that make it healthy and normal?
What about homosexuality and pedophilia? Just normal sexual variants? Ask: Was the human body DESIGNED for this behavior? The reproductive system is for procreation.
