Men on road to extinction


www.telegraph.co.uk

Men are on the road to extinction as their genes shrink and slowly fade away, claims British professor Jennifer Graves.

The researcher in human sex chromosomes said the male Y chromosome was dying and could run out within the next five million years.

But Professor Graves said men may follow the path of a type of rodent which still manages to reproduce despite not having the vital genes that make up the Y chromosome.

There is more about Jenny Graves in the last link.

Wow! No more men, how will you women cope???

Well that would be a very sad day if men aren't around.
It's all to do with ying and yang.
We need each other as we compliment each other.

Glad it's 5 million years off though.

Very interesting.

Any news on if women will be able to produce Asexually?

Extinction to a species is as natural as death is to a person.

Nothing surprising in it, unless one has questionable expectations.
And as we all know, expectations are the building blocks of disappointment.


Plus ... it's not like we're trying to save ourselves.

The article says no. Although it also states that rodents are able to reproduce with no Y chromosome or (SRY).

All - sorry for the duplicate threads.

How many times are you going to post this topic I see 3 by you already. That's going to get you nailed.

Sara's Secret will be in full drive!!!

If the business lasts by then!

Five million years, well thats a stretch I doubt humanity would last another thousand lest five million!

Dont you think that maybe its a good thing that we go extinct. If the dinosaurs never did we would be hiding in a hole while godzilla rampages the earth lol. maybe its time for a change anyways

Five million years is a long time..

IMO, if we last another two thousand as a species, there will be so much transhumanism and technological integration, gender will barely matter anyway...

If we last for another five million.. God only knows now many different types of branches of humanity will have developed in different solar systems, galaxies etc.. we may even have completely transformed our consciousnesses to technology or learned how to leave our bodies completely.

Humanity will be long extinct before that point. Either we'll find a way to kill ourselves, something will kill us, or we'll evolve into a different (or multiple different) species. Five million years is quite a long time, considering humanity has only been around for about 150,000 years.

Even so, if his research turns out to be correct, it's not like we can't fix the problem well within that time. We're already starting clinical trials on Gene therapy treatments and our mastery of genetics grows daily. Indeed, look at the progress humanity made in just last century... and then consider the rate at which discoveries are being made is accelerating. We'll likely discover more about the universe and ourselves in the next 100 years than humanity has done in the past 10,000 years.

So... I'm not too worried about the implications of his research.

Women had better hope that big hairy spiders in the bath and stiff jar lids have also died out by then...

You know, I hate to say it ... but I'm REALLY starting to believe in a feminist agenda.

I never really bought the existence of male privilege, actually i find it a harder life to live in many ways.

That is a very evil thing to say.

Yet it's the thing the PTB have been pushing into our heads ... acceptance of our own demise!

The INhumanity!
