"It may be about reframing the goals of engineering research and curriculums to be more relevant to societal needs. It is not just about gender equity — it is about doing better engineering for us all." Well, Nilsson is correct, in part. It's not about gender equality. It's about reorganizing an entire field of study to cater to a targeted group. That is not gender equality, it's feminist ideology. In today's society, if you cannot compete, the rules of play are changed. There's no incentive to become better; to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person.

The SJW acronym still has meaning. I think we can both agree that legitimate death and rape threats are unacceptable. That being said, people who could be considered social justice warriors are tremendously quick to flip out over any perceived threat to their personal narrative. They use underhanded, mob-like tactics to force their distorted definition of life on everyone else.

Mary Shelley tried to warn us of this a long time ago.

No, she did not. Also, Nostradamus didn't predict Hitler or the September 11th attacks. As for the ethics of the issue, that's a tough one. I agree with you that there "may" be a black market for this, eventually. This isn't like getting a gunshot wound treated at a back-alley clinic. With proper regulations, it can be controlled in a safe, ethical manner.
