Would you, when given the chance, ensure your child's heterosexuality?

Yup, good question - just another schmoe who posts on A2K. But I seem to remember him once saying something about thinking there was something good about Eugenics.

I'm sure there is, I mean, I'd sure like some Wolverine-claws.

Yeah, but there's that nasty temptation to try to play God, and create perfect humans. It's the ultimate slippery-slope.

No. Why would I do that?

There is a thread on it right now, featuring doctor S. Smile

What would you do with your wolverine claws?

And if you ask me, humans are perfect, just not grown up. To say you know how to improve is to assume that you know the highest ideal. If not you might just as easily be doing the oposite.

I'd ensure my child's heterosexuality, of course.

No, kidding, obviously ... I'd do all kinds of cool things, like chop leek 'n stuff.

You could do children's birthdayparties. Halloween would surely be your day.


I think I would like to have gills... Smile

gills are great , wouldn't have to worry about drowning in the pool every morning .
thinking about it , seems to me having gills is more important than being hetorosexual(it wouldn't keep me alive when the ship sinks).

no, but when the ship does sink, and you jump into the sea, it helps having a functioning rear-muscle, lest you take in water and sink. So it helps to be heterosexual.
This is of course not an issue if you have gills.

ergo

It is ok to be gay if you have gills.

I think we can all agree on the gills rock-thing ... especially if the gills have wolverine-claws.


However, today, a scientific magazine published an article which said: gay men are more likely to kill themselves. My conclusion: gay men usually aren't as happy as straight men usually are. So, I ask you, without any homophobic intentions: would this be a reason to use nazi-magic? For the sake of your child's happiness?

Would it? Would it really?

I like your term "nazi magic". Smile

But, no. It would not be a reason to use it. One reason is that you cannot predict the outcome.

My conclusion was the same. The study said: white lesbians are the happiest people. This is no reason to use nazi-magic to ensure all of our children would be born white lesbians.

Nazi-thanks, dude!






Furthermore, is "happiness" really that important? People keep pounding on "happiness", for instance: 'as long as you're happy!' is a sentence I frequently hear. Next question: would you rather be unhappy and intelligent, or happy and of average intelligence?


Can one choose ... ? Can one really?

"I don't understand the question" he said happily... Drunk


Maybe intelligence is the capacity to be happy?
Surely it is some form of intelligence to be able to adapt to life so that it doesn't make you miserable.

But can we choose? I don't think so. Unless you take a baseball bat to your head and hope...

This is the silliest talk of eugenics i've ever heard! I am so in.

White lesbians are happy? Huh. I wonder if they would be so happy if eugenics wiped out all the hot latina, black, asian and other women. Probably, not.

If I had my little hands in one of those super research facilities; I would focus on making a child with an impeccable immune system. Fast healing, hard to kill cockroach-like tough.

No need to worry about what the kid's sexuality is especially considering the much better uses that tech could go towards.
