Oy vey, you’re right, I hadn’t thought of that angle: if my clone has the same mind as the original me but we figured out how to switch the Y to an X, then she would be attracted to females, as I am, so she would be homosexual.  I would want to play with her, but she wouldn’t want me: she would feel like a man who is misconfigured, more interested in playing with herself.  Hey, when you think about it, that might be kinda cool too: no expense, no bother, just gaze into the mirror, get going, done.
