The planned obselescence of the modern male
Well men, it looks like the days of our usefulness are numbered....
From Guardian -- Scientists have grown sperm in the laboratory in a landmark study that could help preserve the fertility of cancer patients and shed fresh light on male reproductive problems.
Fertility experts called the work a "crucial experimental advance" towards the use of lab-grown sperm in the clinic and a stepping stone to the routine creation of human sperm for men who cannot make the cells normally.
With women pretty much doing everything that men used to do and science headed in this direction, males of the future will be relegated to opening jars and paying for dinner and little else.
