Possible side-effect of "limiting homosexuality" found in a new drug?
For anyone who thinks having homosexual urges is very, very important, don't worry: Bio-ethicists shall do their best to ensure that no one takes this or any other drug in order to ensure their child is lacking such urges. That will be considered completely unethical. Besides, taking out children with unwanted traits is the abortion industry's turf.
Mind you, I'm skeptical of all of this. I just find it funny. Gallows humor and all.
Edit: To make the point as blunt as possible: While there being a "gay gene" is fantasy (and morally, beside the point), that there may be some biological and environmental factors that go into influencing a person's sexual urges and preferences is more reasonable. But the cost of identifying those will be - surprise - most people who choose to have children noting those factors, and doing their best to minimize them. After all, while the bio-ethicist may stubbornly insist "homosexuality (or homosexual inclinations) is not an illness to be cured!!!", a matching idea is that a child - particular one still in the womb - is pretty much the personal property of the woman in question. At the end of the day, those proclamations inform a public piety far more than a private one.
If the option is on the table to help ensure a child - possibly the only child in a family - have as least the likelihood to be gay as possible, what do you think most families will do? Answer: They will tell anyone listening and who they are afraid they may offend "I would love my child no matter what their sexual preference they were!" and then do their damndest to make sure their boy likes girls or their girl likes boys. The funny thing is, they may not admit it in public, but it hardly matters. It's a modern, liberal piety - like the gun control advocate who has a pistol in their nightstand because "It's different, my neighborhood is dangerous!"
Those most looking forward to the Brave New World are likely not going to enjoy how it actually plays out. And, on the flipside, some of those currently decrying it may end up grinning and saying, "You know, this could actually be more positive than I expected."
