That’s what ABC News seems to be hoping for with their new article “Envisioning A World Without Men.” According to Bryan Sykes, author of Adam’s Curse: A Future Without Men. “The Y chromosome is deteriorating and will, in my belief, disappear,” in about 125,000 years.
Beyond that the article contains little in the way of science. Instead it outright attacks men, touting this “future without men” as having no war or crime. The entire 2nd half of the article explores how great and normal lesbian couples are.
First off regardless of the truth behind the science this article is clearly sensationalist propaganda. Imagine if someone wrote an article about the extinction of the black man and went on about how great it would be because the prison population would drop dramatically.
Back to the real science, researchers at the MIT-affiliated Whitehead Institute found that, in the six million years since humankind diverged from chimps, not a single gene has been lost. Moreover, there are other male animals that have been around a lot longer than us, crocodiles for instance. In other words, it’s still a man’s world.
