Now, there was a Furspace thread on a similar subject of the technology of becoming a furry, But I want to ask... would you actually do it?
Would you actually pay to have your body genetically altered so that you might be the fursona of your dreams?
Of course, the process would not be free. I would imagine that at best, it might cost somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000 U.S. Dollars, before inflation. Of course, if you were to save up, it would be reasonable.
But if you could, would you save up, design, and have your body become whatever you want?
This thread also has potential for other related issues. Is it ethical? When would you pay, before or after? Would your mind change at all?
There's others, but I'll answer the questions I have presented.
1: Hell yes I'd become my fursona. I am even strongly considering going to college in genetics so that I may help to create the process for this transformation.
2: I think it's perfectly ethical. We already have cosmetic surgeons making people as beautiful as they can afford to buy. This is the same thing, but in a different method and we have an understandably different vision of "Beauty." It is, as they say, found in the eye of the beholder.
3: I think you should pay most of it before, or at the very least be able to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are capable of paying for the process. This is because if you cannot pay, you cannot exactly return the goods, not even Repo the Genetic Opera style. It actually probably cost more to change you back than it'd be worth, not to mention be psychologically crippling.
4: I don't think the mind should be made any lesser, ever. Stronger? Perhaps, but you have to pay extra, and undergo extensive psychological tests to be sure you do not become an unstopable, evil (albeit fuzzy and cute) genius.
The process would be kind of like this story, where you are changed, then have to spend some time recovering and taking some lessons.
