    Any argument for eliminating the 'evolutionary need for X' and having people artificially do away with it is SCARY and incredibly arrogant and just plain offensive.

    As a philosophical argument or political point, sure.

    But to seriously want to go through with eliminating the sexes?

    There are male medical doctors who are proponents of 'getting rid of menstruation' because if women don't plan on popping out babies and raising 12 kids over their fertile lifetime like biologically we were wired to do in the day of mammoths and conquering the planet, then 'menstruation is pointless'. I think one doctor was even quoted as saying something like, "men don't need to menstruate or have a fertility cycle, why should women". I think he was even maybe trying to be 'egalitarian' by saying women don't need to be cursed by the strange, disgusting physical habits of our genetic nature and can be 'normal' just like guys.

    Damn. And I thought we got over that 'one size fits the dominant class' line of justification years ago.

    Hermaphrotitism as the norm would be awesome.

    Perhaps conjoined twin(the two-headed, one body type) hermaphrodites. Imagine..

    If I ever respawn/reincarnate in a parallel universe, I hope it's that one.

    I'm not amazed that someone believes this. But the idea that a 'scientist' would advocate a concept like this, publicly, is somewhat frightening. I really hope forcing this on the populace isn't adopted as a tactic to help curb health care costs in the distant future.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Yes, this is the main point.

    A world full of females doesn't sound very balanced for one thing.

    I can after you start having sex.

    Although, I probably won't have to at that point.

    I'll just do what I can now and hope I end up under a kind mistress if it happens...

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
