The Reformed position (as I understand it) is that we only know sodomy as an abomination according to positive and specific revelation (again through the Scriptures)
I think you understanding is mistaken. We divide revelation under two specific headings: General Revelation and Special Revelation. General Revelation are those things which we ~inferentially~ know to be true. I think most Reformed theologians would classify sex between a man and a women to be a general revelation to all men as the only role for sex regardless of any knowledge of special revelation.

Correct, but the question here is the mode of knowledge. Special Revelation is, to the Reformed Christian, Scripture.
General Revelation is known how? By right reason? By instinct? The Catholic would say the former.
