I have no idea what this Mother Jones interview is about, but it’s funny, and at least some of it has to do with children, albeit ones with undesirable super-powers, so therefore, I feel justified in running it at DadWagon:
MJ: If a superhero has sex with a woman who doesn’t know he’s a superhero—say Clark Kent, rather than Superman—can she sue if the child turns out to have undesirable uncontrollable superpowers?
JD: I don’t think so. I mean I’m not positive, but I would think that by analogy to, for example, someone who knows that they are the carrier to a hereditary disease.
RD: Yeah, a hereditary condition is different than a disease. If you know you have a disease and you give to someone else through sex and you know you have it, that’s a crime.
Read the whole thing, and perhaps explain it to me.
