A British zoo announced yesterday that virgin birth of five Komodo dragons does not add up to a quintuplet reptile messiah.
A baby Komodo dragon is held by a keeper after hatching at Chester Zoo in Chester, northern England, January 22, 2007. Flora, a Komodo dragon who has never mated or even mixed with a male, became a mother and father of five this week, British scientists said on Wednesday.
In unrelated news, science sheepishly
pledges to empower identification of embryonic homosexuals
, instilling fears
that prospective parents hopeful of grandparenthood might abort foeti
who are identified as such.
Dr. Charles Roselli says that his research of homosexual sheep “also has broader implications for understanding the development and control of sexual motivation and mate selection across mammalian species, including humans.” He has been denounced by Martina Navratilova, PETA, and The Sunday Times.
Lynn Ketchum/Oregon State University
foretold the notion of eugenic homophobia
in his ruminations about the last homosexual
. But wishful thinking is no more becoming an aficionado of free markets, than it befits a dispassionate scientist. Advances in genetic engineering may well conjoin with eugenic permissiveness in a prerequisite for the bugbear of a foetal homoholocaust. But this convergence would swing the pendulum the other way with far greater force. Derbyshire gleefuly foretold the loneliness of “an aging, fading cohort, with practically no younger people of their inclination to socialize with”. Yet this privation, if not its mere fear, would generate a powerful demand for a purposely bred epicene supply. Alas, the genetic deck remains stacked against counterbalancing a perpetual baby boom
clones. When will science deliver the red-blooded male’s prerogative, a woman who sucks and fucks till midnight and then turns into a pizza and a six-pack
