    Artificial uteruses, man.

    Noted ventriloquist Paul Winchell invented the artificial uterus back in 1963.
    It’s the damn artificial placenta that’s still holding up progress.

    Heh. The ad that I got before I got to the comic was for Johnny Walker Blue: “For the man who deserves more than a gift.”

    What does that even mean? “For the rich privileged guy who’s entitled to the best?”

    When they learn to reproduce asexually we’ll be in real trouble…

    … of course, learning isn’t what they’re good at, so I’m not too worried.

    I’ve heard the argument that misogyny is based in “womb envy” since I was young but I never gave it much credence. I mean, as a “uterus-possesser” (can’t stand the word womb) I couldn’t imagine what all the fuss would be about.

    On the other hand… I don’t know but it’s starting to make sense to me. Men can’t reproduce without us and while we need you for the impregnation, frankly, you can be pretty superfluous afterwards. Plus, you don’t really know the kid is your baby, the way the woman who just pushed it out of her vagina really knows it’s her baby.

    Yup, I’m slowly being won over to the “womb-envy” side of the question: What’s wrong with women?

    This is why some republicans (e.g. Akin, Mourdock) want rape to be legalized or redefined.

    Not a joke. This quote from Sen. Lindsey Graham at the RNC Convention last year sums it up:

    “The demographics race we’re losing badly. We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

    Artificial uteruses, man. I keep saying. It’s well past time.

    Look, I’ll admit the Athosians are pretty weird and undoubtedly misogynistic, but they’re not a tenth and bad as the MRAs and gun nuts, and that’s a really unfair comparison.

    Most of the Athosians weren’t angry, though the white might be there, but I believe they were introducing more colour variety for the next set of generations.

    And at least their misogyny for the most part didn’t negatively affect many women.
