And this is totally incorrect and not by the rules.
Sorcerers pick the spells they want to learn. Bloodline spells are those they have no choice what to learn.
You are intimating that sorcerers have no choices on picking spells known, which is NOT part of the rules. A sorcerer's absolute flexibility in picking what his SPells Known are is as much a part of the class as a wizard's ability to change his spells every day, including NOT having to make a spellcraft check to learn spells beyond his free ones.
If sorcs had no control over picking their spells known, they'd roll randomly for them, not pick them. That is clearly NOT the case.
You're confusing the player with the charachter. Sorcerers have no choice as to what race they're born or to what background they're born into. Do you roll randomly for race and traits? For that matter they have no choice of what bloodline they're born with or even being born with any bloodline at all. Do you randomly roll for class?
Of course you don't. There are loads of choices the player makes that the to the characters inside the story are chance or fate.
