Interesting how the belief that the body and its cravings must be repressed
has so permeated the Western societies, even among the Extropians. To equate
the support of the ancient urges with stupidity form part of this. (Actually,
one should follow these urges since the species needs all the intelligence
it can get.)
Biologically speaking, the whole species of humans apparently share the
notion of beauty (and thus of ugliness), as shown by scientific research.
Since the current state of technology does not allow for cloning, or other
cheap non-sex alternatives, one may well need to use ``sexist'' techniques
in the area of reproduction until such time when the technology level has
I don't find the ancient reproduction techniques offensive. Thus I see no
reason to suppress this information.
Your mileage may vary.
