What would YOU do?

Imagine, for a moment, that you are one of two parties involved in a planned human pregnancy (this will take a bit of work for some of you, methinks). You and your partner are at the 2nd trimester ultrasound scanning and eagerly await your first knowledge of your child's (or, if you prefer, your choice's) gender. The technician, a kindly lady, finally finishes the examinations that are health-related and goes to look between the legs of the fetus, the common means of making this determination. She zooms in and points out the relevant growing sexual part(s), informing you of the gender. She then acts to make a hard copy of this close-up shot, like she has with the fetus' face. Do you:

a) point out that the knowledge of the gender is enough and politely decline a copy of the image.


b) hold your tongue, knowing full well this picture will probably make for much fun in about 17 years.
