What if science allowed you to live for two hundred+ years in the body of an 18-25 year old without the affects of aging. Through the use of modern technology, anti aging and genetic manipulation. What if you also could be given the choice to pay $10,000 or so to switch your gender while still keeping the body of a 18-25 year old, just in the new gender. It would be based off your own natural genetics. It would just switch you to what you would have become if you were born a boy or a girl instead. Would you do it at some point? Would you decide that around the 100 year mark you might like to try living the next 50-100 years as the opposite gender? Or would you decline?
I ask this question because within the next 50-100 years this may become a reality and those of use living today if we’re lucky enough, might actually see the day this happens.
Some scientists say we are only 15-25 years away from stopping the effects of aging and possibly reversing it. We’ve already cracked the human genome and scientists are already working with its information to build ways that allow the body to regenerate itself. This includes regrowing teeth, missing limbs, resorting eye sight, hearing and curing the paralyzed as well as many other geneticly inherited diseases. Not to mention regenerating dying cells in the body which cause aging.
It’s no doubht that in time with the advances of science that what we refer to as modern day transgenders will one day be completely indistinguishable from their natural born gender counterparts.This means that for transgendered people the ability to alter their high, body shape, voice and even their reproductive organs to the point that they might be able to reproduce as the opposite gender from which they were born.
So as I asked above, if your life were longer and you could be given a new 18-25 year olds body in the opposite gender, would you take the chance to live the way the other half lives for a while? Or would you stay perpetually 18-25 as the gender you are today?
