Researchers are zeroing in on the alleles that result in certain facial traits.

See:
http://journals.plos.org/plosgenetics/article?id=10.1371%2Fjournal.pgen.1006149

There are some nice drawings of the traits they mean.

We might soon actually get some data about what our ancestors looked like other than the often fanciful renderings of artists based only on a skull.

Of course, I'm sure there will in the future be parents who want to mess about with changing their offsprings' appearance by changing these alleles. Designer babies, indeed.

I'm glad we are finally getting there.

And what if you happen to have crazy mother who wants her daughter to look like a Barbie Doll?

There are people who do this to themselves, so some would surely do this to their unborn child:

After the surgery her facial structure looks quite similar to Blaire White's from YT.

(which is not so appealing when you know that Blaire White is biologically a man):

Another anorexic, bleach blonde who makes herself hideous with her surgeries. I've also noticed they often wind up looking like men. I try not to call other people ugly, because it's so hurtful and unnecessary, but this "woman" is truly ugly, imo, and so unnecessary, because she used to be a pretty girl.

I once watched a few episodes of a program on American TV called "The Housewives of Orange Country". They're watered down versions of this. They all start to look alike, and after so much botox their faces start to look like wax melting.
It just reinforces my vow never, ever, to have any of this done. This is one example. I don't feel too terrible posting her because she's an incredibly awful human being.

This is what I mean by their faces melting...

If the media didn't promote them, perhaps neurotic, weak minded people wouldn't do this to themselves.

Of course, doing it to yourself is one thing, doing it to an innocent child is another.
