Hey ladies! Is this not good news? Professor Jenny Graves, one of Australia’s leading scientists, believes that women will ultimately outlast men. Graves bases her prediction on the knowledge that the male sex chromosome suffers from an inherent fragility…besides not being able to get any!
Apparently women have 2 X chromosomes with 1,000 genes apiece while the male Y chromosome of which all males have only 1 has been diminishing to a current 100 genes… and without a bullet, so to speak. In the case of humans, a single gene on the Y-chromosome acts as a signal to set the developmental pathway towards maleness which must be why we never ask for directions…we have only one way to go!
What’s worse, since men only have one Y chromosome, losses can’t be repaired the way they are in women, who’s two X chromosome’s serve as back-ups for each other to patch-up problems. Perhaps this is why men always resort to fighting when trying to problem solve while women only have the occasional pulling of hair…but oh those cat fights!
And since Both males and females retain one of their mother’s X chromosomes, and females retain their second X chromosome from their father, a human female has one X chromosome from her paternal grandmother (father’s side), and one X chromosome from her mother…and you thought it was a mystery why mothers and daughters never get along.
But once the Y chromosome starts to break down in men it begins what Graves calls, “a downward spiral.” Graves goes on to call the remaining genes in the Y chromosome “mostly junk” as a result of “dumb design.” Of course let’s not forget that Ms. Graves is a woman so really, speaking for all men everywhere…what does she know?
But there’s a kicker…it will take over 5 million years for the total extinction of men to pan out the way Professor Graves has outlined. Also, the Y chromosome loses genes in bursts and hasn’t lost any in over 25 million years. So once again it’s just a case of being called in from the yard or away from the game to be told something that isn’t that important after all.
Besides it’s still very likely that science will be able to produce a solution to this problem before it becomes too big of a deal. After all it’s not like in the meantime men are going to pollute the entire planet or blow each other up with atomic weapons or bankrupt the world with crazy investment strategies…
Women of the world! You have 2,000 X’s each and plenty to spare so what are we waiting for? It’s time to do the research before it’s too late and create the new X-man…the XXYman! We’ll be neater and cleaner and ask for your help and directions and be less likely to always side with our mothers and best of all…Mixed Martial Arts Cat-Fight Cage Fighting! What could possibly go wrong?
