Here is an article I read in Advocate Magazine's Online page recently (http://www.advocate.com/News/Daily_News/2010/08/14/A_Treatment_for_Lesbianism/)

I thought you guys might find it interresting:

A hormonal treatment given to pregnant mothers who are at risk of giving birth to babies with ambiguous genitalia is raising concern among some researchers and gay activists because the treatment also decreases the likelihood that the baby will grow up a lesbian, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The General idea is to prevent the developement of 'ambiguous genitalia' but there is a concern that Prenatal Dexamethasone Therapy  might be the first step to genetically engineering your child's sexual orientation, in other words, parents can choose to engineer their kids to NOT be gay.

Needless to say, this leaves us with quite a few questions and cencerns for the unborn child.

What truly determines sexuality or even more so sexual orientation in the womb? What if the born child realises that the organs he/she was 'engineered' with are not what he/she wants? Does this kind of treatment really 'cure' homosexuality, and why the heck do you need a cure for Homosexuality in the first place? Does it mean they will also be able to engineer people to NOT be  homophobic?

What do you think?
