No more men (or barbeques)? Scientists are working on it...


Women have always known this day would come. The day when we could do anything and everything without men. And I mean anything. Researchers at the University of Newcastle have reportedly created human sperm cells from female embryonic stem cells. Translation: they took girl stuff and made it into boy stuff and now babies can be made without men! (Sort of.)

Seriously, though, this is kind of creepy. Apparently this group of researchers has been trying to create sperm out of a variety of things. They've been successful at making sperm out of male bone marrow. They're now trying to make sperm out of female bone marrow.

So it looks like someday women will be able to have babies completely without men involved. The technology isn't there yet, because no one knows if these sperm will be able to create a viable, normal baby. But it's moving in that direction and the scientists are trying to determine whether or not the right genes are all intact.
