Don't care. I got mine.
Also, millions of years? Like we're not going to burn this planet down in the next few decades.

We need to do something now to save the human race. Men will be needed to reproduce, you know.

I have the whole series. It's fine. Nothing to worry about.

Also, can we stop with this shiat? This is the reason Republicans are all clinging to this alpha-male, take-what-you-want, I-got-mine, rape-is-fine mentality. Humans haven't been around long enough to worry about what our DNA will be doing in a few million years. Jesus Christ. Let the Autobots and Cenobites worry about that.

Like our species will survive the next 100 years, let alone millions of 'em.

"This master sex gene was identified as SRY (sex region on the Y) "

If it disappears, it will be SRY, NOTSRY.

The Clone Song
By: Isaac Asimov
Tune: Home On The Range

Oh, give me a clone
Of my own flesh and bone
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And after it's grown,
Then my own little clone
Will be of the opposite sex.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I'm alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

Oh, give me a clone,
Is my sorrowful moan,
A clone that is wholly my own.
And if she's X-X,
And the feminine sex,
Oh, what fun we will have when we're prone.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I'm alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

My heart's not of stone,
As I've frequently shone
When alone with my own little X.
And after we've dined,
I am sure we will find
Better incest then Oedipus Rex.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I'm alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

Why should such sex vex,
Or disturb or perplex,
Or induce a disparaging tone?
After all, don't you see,
Since we're both of us me,
When we're having sex, I'm alone.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I'm alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

And after I'm done
She will still have her fun,
For I'll clone myself twice ere I die.
And this time without fail,
They'll be both of them male,
And they'll each ravage her by and by.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I'm alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

This isn't how evolution works. It's not like it has a quota of chromosomes to eliminate over time with a planned end date in mind; if it's a requirement, then enough will remain. If a mutation adds to its use, then it will grow. If it fades away, selection will preserve humanity in any form it takes.

Projecting our views and guesses on it won't help or hinder anything; it, like us, will simply will be...
...Millions of years from now.

If anyone wants one, I'm not using mine.
