ok, this came out of a conversation me and Nobody were having...

would it make a difference to you in real life if the woman you were in love with was an Alien or a Mutant?

seriously, think about it...

personally it wouldn't make a difference to me, but what about everyone else?

i'm honestly intrigued by this...

if you were in the DC universe, would dating an alien bother you?

or the Marvel universe, would dating a Mutant freak you out?

i know it's stupid, but some people have difficulties imagining a different race relationship, let alone a different species relationship.

would it bother you?

thank you Lady T, i don't see the problem...

but would it bother you knowing what other people thought about you dating an Alien?

"I am not sure. My first thought when I think alien is like Alien from the movie or something monster looking. But I guess if they are humanoid it wouldn't be that bad. Maybe? Mutants seem different cause a mutant is human. Almost like a different race though like mexican and african. But aliens are from a whole other planet out of the human race. But I mean it might be ok if they are huanoid."

some mutants aren't humanoid... does that make them less human?

They are still human though just ugly. Like there are ugly normal people. I have a hard time imagining a relationship with someone who is not a humaniod at least. I mean mutant, human, or alien. If they don't have the basic human make up it would be hard. I could see me dating a hot alien chick before I date a monster looking human."

do it comes down to looks primarily?

#21 Posted by Susan Richards (553 posts) - - Show Bio

Not at all. It all comes down to heart. Who cares if they look different than you? If they make you feel that special pang and your only thoughts are of being with them for the rest of your life it wouldn't make a difference whether they were alien, mutant, or regular human.

Looks are only skin deep, what matters is personality, heart, conviction, and loyalty.

Infact, it would be a plus, someone says or does something derogatory send the other half to take care of them.

#23 Posted by Cosmic Sentinel (3749 posts) - - Show Bio

Chances are with an alien, even if they look human(ish), their DNA might not even look like ours. It may be chemically different. If kids are important to you, then compatability is a question you'd ask.

Exactly. I mean, for me personally, I want to have kids some day and if some factor is going to negatively affect them I would do everything within my power to avoid that. If that means not having kids at all with the individual I love then so be it. That's what adoption is for i suppose.

When it comes to planning a family, genetics really is everything.

Well, in terms of, like, the tabboo? Long as I can imagine myself tapping it, there's no problem relationshipwise...but, I might hesitate to consider things such as disease, and other health-related details to dating an alien or mutie.

Agreed.

The way I see it, if you're truly in love with them and you know that you may not be able to reproduce naturally there are still other options.

Hey, I'm almost certain Earth isn't the only planet that provides adoption services. Sometimes your want to be a parent surpasses your own bloodline. You can still be with who you want to be, and be a parent.

wat no but I mean we have seen things fly. But if I asked u to think of an alien u would think of something u ve already seen, maybe from a movie or comic book. its like asking me would I like god if I him/her, its sooo unbleivable so impossible to think about that, of course u would immediately put him in a humanoid form but I mean he could be particles he could be everything and anything. if u can imagine him and everything he could be then ur a better man then me
