Grow Your Own Sperm! *Man Not Included
There has been great controversy around stem cell research since the very beginning.
Recently, however, a professor at Newcastle University may have crossed the line when he found a way that could render the male sex superfluous.
Professor Karim Nayernia, Chair of Stem Cell Biology at Newcastle has discovered a way to produce sperm from stem cell material. The image above is a very very basic description of the process involved for fertilizing a female mouse without* using male sperm.
*I’m thinking that since an embryo is needed to isolate the stem cells responsible for sperm production, at least one male (or his sperm) will be needed to initiate this process.
What do you think, girls? Do you think we can handle getting rid of all but one man? (I would suggest that Prof. Nayernia be the one man we keep!)
I don’t know…as much as I would like to get rid of the smell of men that wafts through the air, I think there may be grave consequences to getting rid of them.
For example, men are pretty good for dispelling female anger against one another; men can lessen the frequency of fights such as these from occurring:
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I would like to keep my hair firmly attached to my head.
This is a really great discovery just in case there is a plague that only wipes out the male population or if Mars Needs Men
Although I haven’t decided if I would want to get rid of men or not. I’m open to discussion.
What do you think, girls?
And you, men?
