Homo Erectus Extinctus

I just finished reading this article and I have to pass it on because I just find it endlessly fascinating. It is jam-packed with information on various topics related to the decline of the Y chromosome, artificial reproduction, and the latest technology that indicates it's possible for two women to use their genetic material to become parents.

"The bill is a reflection of much wider scientific and social changes. The technology to produce artificial sperm, or even create offspring from two females, is already in the pipeline; in addition, genetic evidence has shown that the Y chromosome, the only one that confers maleness, is in a long-term evolutionary decline."
