I think that expert is full of shiat

Sexual reproduction is why we survive and thrive as bigger animals. Genetic diversity makes it impossible for some supervirus to wipe out the majority of human life.

Well I'm not getting any sex now so I don't see a problem.
 
2012-08-18 12:01:19 AM  
I think it's safe to say that for a substantial number of us Farkers, that describes the present

You explain that to my penis, lady.

I can understand how a minority might embrace the option. However, I also don't see the majority of humans giving up their favorite activity.

Gattaca was a somewhat frightening portrayal of what such a society might be like when it came to procreation. Hopefully it won't come to that.

cman: Genetic diversity makes it impossible for some supervirus to wipe out the majority whole of human life.



We've seen the majority wiped out before.

I've seen this Star Trek : TNG episode. They had to drop off a bunch of obnoxious Irish immigrants to a colony of sexless cloners.

Is that what you want?
 
2012-08-18 03:21:58 AM  
That's okay. The present is sexless too.

Aarathi Prasad with her 8 yr old daughter Tara and ex partner Robin

Is it wrong to not read the article, just glance along till I see that and think "ah, 'ex' partner, I see what's happened here, she's had a messy break up, isn't handling it well and so wants to abolish all sex and relationships in future." Most people just have ice cream.

Genetics Expert: Inspired by the most logical race in the galaxy, the Vulcans, breeding will be permitted once every seven years. For many of you, this will be much less breeding. For me, much, much more.

Let's not forget the one from Planet Androgyny asking Riker about his sex organs. IIRC Riker tried to bone that one anyways.

This About That: Now, there is an accomplished troll!


If you're referring to the writer of that article and not the woman who wrote the book, then I agree. That was bad even for the Daily Fail. At first it was just a few small jabs at the scientist, then there were a couple of "LIBS!" thrown in, then it went full on double back flip russian twist derp with a perfect dismount onto Godwin's Law.

I thought he did bone that one, but I could be mistaken. It's been a while since I've seen that episode.

"The future will be sexless"

Wow, that's really close to the talk my big brother gave me on the night of my bachelor party. Just replace "the" with "your", and it's almost verbatim.

He was really shiat faced at the time (so was I) and he was recently divorced, so I just thought he was drunk and bitter.

I just had my fifth wedding anniversary. The man was a Farking prophet.

Uhh... so if we don't NEED to do something that feels good, we won't, even though it feels good? Is that the point the article is trying to make?

Yeah, I don't see that happening. We don't NEED to do most things people enjoy. It hasn't stopped the alcohol industry, video game industry, insert any hobby here industry...

/"We don't need to do this, you know, there's labs..."

Imagine, he could have been a Captain Jack Harkness kind of dude.

That episode creeped me out when they talked about fertilising a husk instead of having sex. Horrible mental image of people with blank expressions humping tamales.

In the 50s they said we would all be eating a pill that contained all the nutrients we needed.

We don't because bacon tastes good. Porkchops taste good.

We will be shagging for the lulz indefinitely, procreation or not.

/first ever use of "lulz" amidoingitright?

Ringshadow: Uhh... so if we don't NEED to do something that feels good, we won't, even though it feels good? Is that the point the article is trying to make?


Seems to me that the suggestion is that we won't need to have sex for reproduction any more, not that we will stop having sex altogether. Well, she's teasing a bit with the "no sex" angle with references to "virgin births", but it seems clear she's using that as a hypothetical rather than likey outcome.

Dude, both of you should have chosen your women more carefully. Way more carefully.
