Bad News, Guys!

Men about to become totally dispensable:  Sperm grown in laboratory
Scientists have grown sperm in the laboratory in a landmark study that could help preserve the fertility of cancer patients and shed fresh light on male reproductive problems

Fertility experts called the work a "crucial experimental advance" towards the use of lab-grown sperm in the clinic and a stepping stone to the routine creation of human sperm for men who cannot make the cells normally.

Though the procedure would be illegal in Britain under current legislation, sperm grown in the laboratory, if proven safe, could be used to help infertile men have children through standard IVF treatments...
It could also be used to make women totally independent of men for reproductive purposes.  Since we already know they're smarter, more social, cleaner, and better citizens in general, I can only imagine it is a matter of time until they find a way to open jars by themselves and don't require us at all.  It's not like we're needed to fight off the saber toothed tigers with knives anymore...
