ATS scholars will likely resurrect this message and work the issue and fix the problem.


ATS scholars? LOL

There is nothing to fix and don't fret: the male of the species is not going to disappear. The SRY gene will probably move onto another chromosome to continue producing males. A recent study has also confirmed the Y chromosome is fighting its degeneration hard, and in some men it has developed some unusual structures to keep it safe and going. It's a small sample study, but still interesting:

Analysis of 62 hybrid assembled human Y chromosomes exposes rapid structural changes and high rates of gene conversion- 2017

Some mammals have already lost their Y chromosome, I'll try to find the article and post it here because it may show what could happen to us if this eventually happens.



Preserve this message for millions of years into the future, so future ATS readers can remedy the situation before it becomes out of control. Thank you.


Out of control? LOL I'm not sure if you are kidding or serious.

.... I wonder which is the real stronger gender.......




Agartha, any speculation on what is causing it to weaken? Tighty whities, air, food?

Hi, Lady!

Actually is not lifestyle. The Y chromosome has a basic / central flaw: the fact that cells only carry one copy of it (whilst X chromosome has two). This means that a single copy is passed on from male to male without being able to do a 'reshuffle' of genes to make sure mutations are eliminated.

Not being able to go through a genetic recombination (like chromosome X) and missing out on its benefits, Y chromosome degenerates over time and gets weaker and smaller. In fact the original Y chromosome was as big as the X.

Hope it's clear.
