This is my curly hair with my new haircut.
I’m also wearing red lipstick today which is a bit of a change for me.
I hope you’ll all having a lovely day. It’s really hot here, so I haven’t done much today.
Babies Ordered With Curly Hair, Straight Hair And Blue Eyes
Catalog ordered babies are becoming the norm for some people. What kind of a baby would you like? A dark skinned, blue eyed, tall, intellectual baby? Would you like a fair skinned blonde person with brown hair and curly hair? With sperm donation and genetic deciphering you can order the baby of your desire. Does this seem a little strange?Yes, if you are choosing a car, a house, or even a dog, sure, put in your order, but a baby? Shouldn’t chance and nature have a little say in the outcome of procreation? Call it old fashion but it seems nature has been doing a good job for a long time.What happens if you happen to be the baby that was ordered with blue eyes and you come out with green eyes? Your parents paid big bucks for those blue eyes, are you a failure from birth? What if you were ordered with intellectual prowess and you end up in remedial classes, you are a failure on lots of levels.Nature has been producing babies with exactly what parent’s need for millenniums, maybe not what they thought the wanted, but what they needed. If all babies were genetically engineered exactly as the parents ordered, we would miss a lot both as families and as a society.Curly haired products for straight hair, straightening agents for curly hair, colored contacts, weaves, implants, growth injections, nipping, tucking, we are engineered enough! Futuristic books are full of cloned societies where intellectual races fill planets. In such a utopian society who works at the restaurants, who is the garbage man, the hairdresser or the worker bees? If all the bees were the queen bee, there would be no honey and the hive would starve to death.Curly hair products, strengtheners? Absolutely, but genetically ordered babies? Sounds like a sci-fi gone badly. There is room for every intellectual level on this planet! In the sci-fi story, the “Giver” the utopian society has no room for anyone who is different. If you can’t conform, keep up and produce you are released from society. Released is the kinder and gentler word for killed. Only one type of person is valued. We are not, nor do we want to be that society. Nature, chance, the universe, God, whatever you call it, has been calling the shots for a long time with great results, maybe people should just let them continue.
Day 20: Curly Hair
month of memories day 20: curly hair. One of the traits I inherited from my father was my thick, curly hair. He used to say that when I was born, his hair flew off his head and into mine! It was such a hassle for him to comb my hair when I was little, and that’s one of the reasons I have dreadlocks now.
