I enjoyed Ken Thomas' letter, "Natural law dictates 2-gender society" (Forum, Jan. 15). He tells us that "Natural Law runs its course perfectly ,.. never makes any mistakes."

I wonder how Natural Law explains the hermaphrodite, the "person or animal with the sexual organs of both the male and the female" (Webster's New World Dictionary).

Natural Law never makes mistakes. If it "discriminates against two confused people of the same gender," how does Natural Law handle the hermaphrodite? I'm sure Mr. Thomas must know.
