[On eugenics being a toxic idea]

Thinking someone isn't a good person because they can't look past inheritable characteristics in their partner is what I call potentially dangerous, especially from a biological standpoint.

Every eugenicist should practice what it preaches and removes itself from the genepool.

The choice of a sexual partner is personal. "Biology" as a whole is descriptive of a RESULT.

The tortured sentence structure here makes it hard for me to get the point.

There are inheritable characteristics that I wouldn't want to pass on to my children. If I wanted to have a family with somebody with one of these conditions, we'd have to decide to adopt or use artificial insemination. How is that dangerous to society? And I don't give a fig if someone thinks I'm "not a good person" because of my sexual or reproductive choices.

Do you know what I call potentially dangerous? A tiger with a surly attitude.

You do not, however, advocate torturing, killing and/or sterilising those people for reasons they can't help. That is the big difference.

Let's remove eugenicists from the gene pool.

I think I might agree with them, it's a little hard to tell because of the build up of double negatives.
