In theory, a FW might play a role of a mother that cannot bring herself to love her children, or loves them so much she goes too far in protecting them. Plenty of interesting options. It can result in realistic and good RP that I would not have any issue with (and I doubt you would really have an issue with it). In theory, the whole children thing might also be something that only plays a background role. A good RP-er can do good stuff with it, nevermind what the prim-luv-baby-cuddly-Brady-Bunch-moms do with (even if there are perhaps a lot of those). Norman may not felt like writing about this stuff, and it is clearly not at the core of what makes the Gorean theme what it is, but there is no need to follow Norman in what he writes about, we can simply RP in his world.
A few bad apples spoils the bunch, is the saying. But we are letting them spoil the bunch, by looking at the bunch as a bunch, and not as individual apples. As far as I am concerned, the fact that 10 people play something in a way that is annoying doesn't mean that we should assume that the 11th will do the same.
The only thing I have an issue with is the idea (not endorsed publicly by anyone here) that good by the books RP by FW SHOULD involve any of this stuff.

I bet more women have crapped out babies in SL Gor than Crap.
Personally- It's all crap to me and ruins my fantasy of a crap-free / leave it to beaver-free / baby-free Gor.

While it makes sense that things like childbirth and family could be part of a character's story, certain things just don't belong in an adult setting. Pregnancy is teeth clenchingly tolerable when handled in the correct way but child avatars should never be allowed for a myriad of reasons.
Specifically, child avatars running around while adult characters are raping, murdering, drinking, swearing, fighting, fucking, etc etc etc creates a slew of moral and ethical issues.
And the nude slaves with their hoo hah's out in full view in front of little Johnny and Susie, getting spanked, whipped, collared et al? Uh uh. Noooo bueno.
LL has also very aggressively gone after sims and sim owners for anything that looks like kiddie porn so unless a sim owner is out of their minds I can't see them going for this sort of roleplay regardless if the intentions are benign or not.
