Look! Up in the Sky!

Another plank of the dreaded "homosexual agenda" has been leaked to the press.  As you read this post evil but fashionably attired scientists are working to create a race of genetically manipulated gay super babies.

That's right.  You see, gay parents have grown tired of anxiously waiting to find out if their kids are going to share their love of Joan Crawford film festivals and classic Prada slingbacks.  They want to take the guess work out of discovering what team little Finster will play for.  And despite our best efforts of using Madonna's Immaculate Collection album as lullabuy music and telling the kids Bert is Ernie's special friend, some of them still turn out (gasp) straight.

Now of course I'm being just a little sarcastic.  This is all science fiction, and is posted on World Nut Net Daily, where good ideas go to die.  But they are actually posing the possibility that in the future, gay couples will use genetic engineering to incorporate "gay genes" into embryos they create in the lab and dispose of the straight ones, creating children in their own gay images.  The reason for this thought exercise is say that by the time this technology becomes available in the near future, the rights of "procreative freedom" as it relates to embryo selection may be protected by the Supreme Court.  Of course we won't get rid of all the straight ones.  Who's going to explain football?  Oh right lesbians.  Hmm.

In my humble and greatly biased opinion, this stuff gets posted on conservative sites like WND to rile up the base.  This story has the double advantage of playing to the "Save the Embryos" crowd while also repeating the story that the gays are coming after the children.  The net effect is one of mock horror and certainly isn't going to put the average user of such a website in a pro gay family state of mind. 

We're parents.  We want our kids to grow up healthy, well adjusted, and happy.  What if they're gay? is last thing on most of our minds.

On the other hand, these are the same people who deny the existence of a "gay gene" and tell us it's a choice.  Can't have it both ways now, can you?  Besides, if the true "gay gene" is ever isolated, I wonder if they would suddenly be in favor of "deleting" it?
