We dont have a positive sounding name for a congenital
condition that is positive. Currently anything that is different from
the norm is a birth defect or a deformity. We need a term
for humans born with some cool new ability or feature
that other humans don't have. The term "talent" is getting
close, but it still doesnt mean a physical feature that is
different. How about "birth fect"? Formity? Congenital
feature? Inhancement? Americans with abilities act? spike
