### It's telling what that WSJ hack sees as dangerous: High
intelligence, physical health, white racial characteristics. Why
doesn't she warn about the danger of a 6'4 black basketball player
with inhuman dribbling? Why didn't she theorize about actual abuse
that could be committed using genetic engineering of offspring - like
making them pretty, servile, sex-obsessed, with reinforced vaginal and
anal musculature, and STD-resistant, the ideal sex slaves? How about
just making slaves - obedient, easy to feed, good as cannon fodder in
future wars?

There is something detestable about anybody who professes outrage that
children in the future could have higher IQ and the wrong skin color.
