Today’s topic comes from QSFer Alicia Nordwell: “I adore medical technology in science fiction. You see a lot of fictional weapon, electronic, and spaceship technology advances in stories, but you don’t see a lot of stories focus on that aspect of a futuristic tale. I like playing with nano technology, personally, but I’ve also done a combination of mechanical devices and a healing biological fluid. What are other author’s favorites?”
It’s an interesting topic… where will medical technology take us in the next ten years? Twenty? Fifty?
And more specific to the LGBt community, what effect will it have on us? Will there be a definitive answer on genes and homosexuality? Will the scientific reason for bisexuality or transgender identity be discovered? Will medical science finally cure HIV? Or give terrorists the ability to unleash a gay-specific disease? Will sexuality and gender become entirely mutable?
What do you think?
