You reap what you sow

A common dystopian vision of the future posits a world where men are obsolete, where humans are grown in test tubes, and women rule the world.

For some reason, although this always seemed technically possible, I never felt it was all that plausible. I reminded myself that at the very least they would require the services of one donor to provide the DNA samples, so to speak.

My security blanket has been shredded by a recent article which reports that scientists can now create sperm from female bone marrow.

This raises interesting questions, not the least of which is, can a women now create an embryo that is her own clone by providing both strands of the DNA helix? In essence, can she finally 'go and f**k herself'?

Long way to go for a crude payoff, I know. You get what you pay for.
