A titbit for potential mothers

Lesbianism May Be Increased By Thyroxine And Amphetamine In Pregnancy

Professor Lee Ellis and colleages at Minot State University N.D. have found that mothers of homosexual daughters used thyroxine and amphetamine in pregnancy at higher frequencies than mothers of heterosexual daughters.

The researchers found that the mothers of homosexual women were at least five times more likely to have taken synthetic thyroid medications during pregnancy than mothers of heterosexual women, and eight times more likely to have used amphetamine-based diet pills such as Dexedrine and diethylpropion.

They also found evidence that some drugs have the opposite effect during pregnancy, reducing the probability of homosexual offspring. Mothers of heterosexual males were 70 per cent more likely to have taken drugs to combat nausea than those of male homosexuals.

The effect of the drug use is most pronounced in the first trimester of pregnancy. Since it is generally believed that sexual orientation of the brain is set during the first trimester this aspect of the result is not surprising and it can even be seen as strengthening the likelihood that this result will hold up when a follow-up study is conducted on a larger number of subjects.

I predict that in the future as the influence of various drugs on sexual orientation become known women will intentionally use drugs to increase the odds that their children will be born with the sexual orientation that they prefer. Will lesbian women use sexual selection techniques to ensure that their offspring will be daughters? Also, will they choose to have lesbian or heterosexual daughters?

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

How very interesting, Tricia.

Outlanders sometimes ask one how Aristasia-in-Telluria is going to have future generations, and one says rather resignedly - "Well, only by recruitment". There are after all three huge objections to an Aristasian's having a child; by which I mean having an Aristasian child who will grow up to form part of the next geneation of Aristasians. And no real Aristasian would want any other kind:

1) It may be a bee-oh-why. 2) Even if it is a girl, she may want to marry an em-ee-en. 3) The Pit is no place to bring up a child. One could not expose her to television, bongo schools etc. But neither could one bring her up in isolation. So what could one do?

However if the first two problems might eally be solved in the future, the third would be in our own hands. And with a growing Aristasian community, that might well be solved. We would need to have our own schools and communities, preferably some of them away from Europe and North America where: a) There would be less State-interference and b) The locals would be more traditional and pose less "temptation" to bongodom.

All of this is entirely conceivable providing the first two problems can be truly solved, and Dea willing, the two sets of solutions may well become possible at about the same time - in a few years.

So raise your glasses, ladies. Here's to the next generation!

There is nothing that is a more direct attack on what it is good than all this dirty fiddling around with the process of creating life. Stay far, far away from the usages of Sulva, your Highness.

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

For once I disagree with Umm Jack. When anesthetics were first invented some people said they were against nature and shouldn't be used because God meant us to feel pain. We interfere with life processes in lots of ways to make us healthier. In years to come if science finds ways of defeating the aging process I will be using them. Its a matter for each person's conscience but if science can help me have a child when i just couldn't have a boy or a man-centered girl then I think that's a wonderfull thing.

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

This is my first time disagreeing with Umm Jack, too, I think. I'd love to have a daughter someday -- but if there was the slightest possibility of a son instead, I simply couldn't do it. Very silly and selfish of me, but there it is.

I grew up in a house of women where virtually the only men who ever visited were distinctly effeminate. I'm an Aristasian, and so any child of mine would have two mothers and no father. I have exactly two male friends, neither of whom I understand in the least. Femininity is the guiding principle of my life and my highest ideal -- what on earth would I do with a boychild?

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

The relevant facts are not appropriate for unmarried blondes. Suffice it to say that knowledge of the technics involved is something no young blonde should ever acquire. However, a desire for a child of the superior sex is quite understable. There is a superabundance available in the People's Republic of China, due to just this kind of dreadful meddling with the order of Heaven.

We are aware that current methods of sex-selection involve the taking of life. Please be assured that this is not an option for a fully committed Aristasian.

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

Indeed. One couldn't possibly do anything of the sort. That's why all of this is so exciting: a practically-guaranteed girl, rather than a boy one would be obliged to take care of and love as best one could but whose advent would turn one's life upside down even more thoroughly than becoming a mother always does, by preventing true Aristasian life for the next eighteen years.

For some, giving up an unwanted male child for adoption would be possible; but can one really see an Aristasian blonde, overflowing with tender sensitivity and the love of small helpless creatures, parting from the flesh of her flesh under any circumstances? Our hearts weren't built that way.

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

Ma'am, that is not all I mean. Forgive me, but I really don't see how any Aristasian can have a grasp on what is involved here. For one thing, the technics are entirely post-Eclipse. For another... dear me, there is absolutely no way to discuss these matters in public.

I must say I am so shocked I am finding it difficult to have this conversation gracefully, so I shall excuse myself.

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

Sometimes with questions of technology I find it useful to wonder, if this was magic rather than science would it be white magic or black magic? In this case I am still undecided.

If one could, for example, make a child out of clay and bring her to life, would it be perfectly proper to make a female child rather than leave it to chance? I believe Wonder Woman was created in this way. However, she is a rare successful example. Tradition and myth do not look kindly on the idea.

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

The solution is to craft a child from flowers, as Gwydion created Blodeuwedd so that Llew Llaw Gyffes might have a wife despite his mother's curse. Such a child would necessarily be feminine!

My namesake, Princess Diana of Paradise Island, was brought to life by the direct intervention of the gods, not by magic. An important distinction!

Re: A titbit for potential mothers

I suppose the point is that, while Aristasians can at times be mistaken for Tellurian conservatives, that is not actually what we are.

Our real priority is to build Aristasia in Telluria, not to preserve Tellurian norms, however respectful of them we may be and however much we may at times defend them against the lunacy of the Pit.

Confusing perhaps - but only because the Pit is so insane. In a normal world we should probably be regarded as radicals rather than conservatives. Actually neither is quite true. We are conservative Aristasians, which in some ways works out as radical from a sane Tellurian point of view, but not from the crazy Tellurian point of view adopted by the Pit's mainsewer.

Anyway, here's to the next Aristasian generation.
