Even though some mutations are beneficial, the news media ''only'' focus on deleterious mutations, presumably because bad news is more attention grabbing.<ref>https://www.adweek.com/digital/bad-news-negative-headlines-get-much-more-attention/</ref>
People are also hardwired to exclude mutants to increase their own [[reproductive success]].<ref>https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0886260515593546</ref><ref>https://www.researchgate.net/publication/301670151_Adolescent_Bullying_in_Schools_An_Evolutionary_Perspective</ref> People also often forget that [[natural selection]] still sifts out the worst mutations. Hence, maintaining a good gene pool is not the most important issue humanity facing.
