The Unnecessary Professor.

In a piece for The New York Times [Men, Who Needs Them?] Greg Hampikian - a Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Boise State University - cheerfully tells his readers that men are not necessary for the survival of the species. As a matter a fact, he appears to believe that the elimination of males would actually be beneficial.

He writes,
"Ultimately the question is, does “mankind” really need men? With human cloning technology just around the corner and enough frozen sperm in the world to already populate many generations, perhaps we should perform a cost-benefit analysis."

Through a Google search, I was able to obtain a photo of the good professor. At the risk of appearing uncharitable, I'd say that many, if not all the women Hampikian has had contact with throughout his life have convinced him that men really aren't necessary.
