I thought about this some time back when I asked about what other stories from the Wizarding World universe you'd like to see be made as spin-off movies/TV specials (I thought "My Life as a Squib" would be an interesting story to adapt).
Anywho, from what I understand about Squibs (and admitting now I'm not a hardcore HP fan, I just look at it every once in a while), they're people born to at least one magical parent but who possess no magical power of their own. Since magic is believed to be at least partially genetic and Squibs can later have children who may become witches or wizards (implying their genes that give a person magic are there but not active), I was wondering...since we have science in the muggle world that can be used to activate genes that are 'repressed' or 'switched off', do you think that this science could be used to activate the repressed/switched off magical genes in Squibs?
Granted that if it is possible, there would a lot of kerfuffle and hoo-haa around it from multiple sides; the Muggles who know about it (and may/may not have prejudice against wizards), the Wizarding World (be it pure bloods, half bloods or muggle borns who would have a variety of possible reactions) and from Squibs themselves (who may be overjoyed at possibly getting their magical power activated and no longer being second-class citizens in the Wizarding world, or who may reject it because they're happy in their lives living in the Muggle/Wizarding world).
Do you think such a procedure could become possible, what do you think the reactions would be, and do you think it would become accepted?
There's no right or wrong answers - just your opinions.
