Ask the Genie for - A Gay Baby?

It's a dream come true. You're a pregnant mum, you've saved an archaeologist's life and he's rewarded you with one of the lamps he found on a dig and it happens to be the genuine article, a real, wish-granting Genie housing magic lamp.

You get one wish for your future child. The specs available are one boy or girl and the orientation can be fully normal or totally homosexual. Either choice delivers a 100% healthy kid, and the orientation is set in concrete with a sliding scale for homosexuality from mildly perceptible to the full Macho Drag model. Once the wish is granted, it's forever. Would you deliberately choose to have a homosexual child of either orientation if that choice was totally your responsibility and no one else's? There are lots and lots in this forum who will be hanging off every word you utter.

So I can't wish for immortality, time travel, invisibility, to ressurect a loved one, wealth, power or a giant penis?

I only get to wish for a child?

I'd pick a straight boy or a lesbian girl.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

You can ask for as caterpillar with genital herpes for all I care - in another forum Good luck. What part of the proposition are we struggling with? If you don't have an opinion about homosexuality, what are you doing on a debating platform?. I'm basically interested in those kind folk who 'get it' without the attention grabbing antics and cheap jibes.

I want all boys; I'll leave their sexual orientation to nature.

If it was entirely up to me, I'd make either gender heterosexual.

OK - 'leave it to nature' is the same as saying you don't have an opinion when you could have guaranteed power to change something major. Nice walk backwards, chum. What courage.

Despite the fact that you are obviously a 12 year old who has recently taken to trolling I answerd your question. I did so in a lighthearted way, and you lay into me and then tell me to lighten up!

Oh, I get it. You're basically asking the question, under optimal circumstances, why would anyone intentionally choose a homosexual child? And then somewhere during the conversation you'll come swooping in with the real reason behind the loaded question to say that homosexuality is an aberration, yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah.

How accurate am I, genie?

Maybe nobody wants to play God. Was it "courageous" to build the first nuclear bomb or was it a horrible that can't be undone?

What do you care, anyhow?

I got a sex change and knocked up and you expect me to worry about something that frivolous?

As a parent, my son's sexual orientation is truly the least of my worries. It really is not nearly important to me as his health, his attitude toward self, life, and others, and many other things that I worry about. If he came up to me and said he had something big to tell me and he said he was gay, I would actually be relieved. The things he could do to really mess his life up permanently are what are on my radar.

even given the massive social advantages homosexuals enjoy, even with sideline perks like having no expensive children to bribe to love them and lots of disposable income and free time? I mean, there are lots of mothers who would love to just loaf around in bars and buy expensive knick knacks. They can always sleep their way to the top in a way that straight ones can only dream about. Talk about a wasted opportunity.

You mean, all those Nazis in their macho drag uniforms and Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great, and all the other great warlords of history who themselves came out of the closet and bragged about being gay as monkeys were not engaging in their ultimate sexual passion - ultra violence through military exhibitionism? Perhaps if there were no gays, there'd be no more wars.
