This is in response to the comments of Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, who’s not thinking through his theoretical situations very well.
What’s on my mind, Facebook? I’ll tell you.
If I was choosing forty humans to start a colony, and the decision was based on having the most genetic diversity in the next generation, I would choose twenty young lesbian couples representing as much diversity of the human genome as possible, who are healthy and want to have children.
Think about it. Every single member of your forty person crew is able to bear a child, and every single member of the crew is in an emotionally fulfilling relationship, something I’d want to have if I was part of a pioneering colony.
How do they get pregnant, you ask? Don’t they need men, so they can get pregnant?
Ha, silly man. Science, you know, is a wonderful thing. Along with the women would go a collection of thousands of diverse semen samples, donated by the brave stay-at-home men back on earth.
Funny how science can preserve semen more economically without an entire human male to sustain.
That’s what’s on my mind, Facebook, and I’m not ashamed of it.
