The truth hurts me
Except you can alter the genetics to "insure" that the baby will grow to a certain height, have a certain body type, eye color, hair color etc. all using the parents genes. It's just about turning of dominate genes and turning on recessive ones. So in sense the boyfriend was right. But still it was a dick thing to say.
#61 Actually we can, and we have done so with other animals. We don't do it on humans yet because it is still considered "immoral". We even found a way to switch a gene on to make us 100% more muscular and durable. Again, we don't do it on humans yet because the scientists fear backlash for moral issues.
The idiot boyfriend mistook "test tube" with "genetically engineered embryo". The former has been around for about 30 years now. The latter has been tested extensible but not perfected yet to make a "super baby". And nope is not sci-fi anymore but not a complete reality either.
IVFis the process of removing a woman's eggs and taking a male's sperm sample, artificially fertilizing them on a lab, and then placing the fertilized egg back in the woman. It's designed to help combat infertility and other problems conceiving so a couple can still have a baby that's genetically yours
This isn't a dystopian young adult novel. Where did he get that idea? As far as I know, that kind of genetic manipulation is still controversial, if not downright illegal.
Aww love to hear ignorance in the morning. Try explaining the methodology of the procedure to him. If that doesn't work, please refrain from reproducing with this gentleman.
Say "Yeah, and surely you'd still have a girlfriend if you weren't an asshole"
If my significant other said that to me I would laugh my ass off. I would never get into a relationship where somebody would treat me that way lol. You learn these kinds of traits before you begin your relationship, hence dating. I'd probably respond with some other witty quip.
