Hypothetically: If you knew that when you had children the females turned out straight and the males gay- would you genetically engineer to ensure that all your children were female? And vice versa.

No. I would be just as happy with a gay male and I would be with a straight female, vice versa. I have nothing agaisnt gay, being gay, or whatever.

Good point, though I think God is okay with us using our brains, science, and technology to manipulate things. I don't think He expects us to have the same infant mortality rate as in Biblical times, for example.
I'd rather have straight kids of any gender. Period. I have nothing against gay people, but I'd prefer to have heterosexuality and the societal acceptance of it in common with my children. I'd love them the same either way.

if women are straight , and the guys are gay it would be a screwed up world . Imagine the women are like " PLEASE I NEED A MAN!!" and the guys are like " But I'm gay" and then theres the war of the sexes.

Obv I would do this for 2 reasons.

I dont want queers and they're less females in the world then males, so it's helpful to balance the genders.

Psh! I am likley to have a gay child, and I want a boy more than ever. The gay part would just be another aspect of his personality :)

No, i'd leave it up to nature. I really don't like the idea of designer babies. Besides, i don't have a problem with gays, so if i did have a son i'd be just as happy.

Yay!

I wouldn't care one bit whether my children were male or female, straight or gay, I'd just want them to be happy.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 10/16/06 - 7:06:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Most definitely not, besides it would mean I have stuff more in common with my hypothetical male children.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 1/6/07 - 12:41:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope..I'd just let nature take it's course

What have you got against grandchildren?

I wouldn't change my child. I'd want them to live the way they want to. I don't think being gay is genetic.

I would just want him/her to be happy and have a good life.

Go back and read the question. It's not about changing your children, it's about ensuring one way or the other for a certain sex.

I'd let nature decide. At least if you know from the word go that your son is gay he wount have to go through the stress of "coming out".

I'd rather have a straight daughter, but I wouldn't manipulate their genes to get one.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 4/15/07 - 6:52:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't care, if they're gay, great for them, if they're straight, great as well

So you (spit) only want them straight for yourself, not for them?
Gays can adopt, or have surrogates. There are multiple ways of gay people raising there own families.
