  • Looks like nobody wants to play the game and answer the question asked, so... I'll play.

    First, a story. I had a friend that was (probably still is) bisexual. When we would go to bars or night clubs... he would look around and then... with a smile on his face... proclaim that he had twice as much probablility of getting laid that night as I did.

    ---

    Now, in this future scenario where I am choosing traits for my child... I would want to make sure that my child could have children, if desired.

    It is entirely possible that a society that has the ability to modify and manipulate the genome at will would have the ability to fulfill that requirement... possibly not even needing someone of the opposite gender... regardless of the "orientation" of the genetic donor.

    So... sure... I would choose to "unlimit" my child and free him (actually... most likely a her) from the limits imposed by nature.

    What good is technology if we aren't going to move beyond the possibilities presented by nature? You don't see people shuning the use of automobiles because moving at high speed is "un-natural" for humans... I don't see much difference once the technology is developed adequately.

    One thing tho... I would want to make sure that my child did not need technology to reproduce. I think humans should always have a "fallback" plan... and not get overly reliant on technology. At least for now.
