  • A lot of scientifical falsehoods

    I'm a biology student and I was appalled at this installment. Sure, this show is very sensationalized and hypothetical, but that is not an excuse to spread pure inaccuracies. Ok look. The male XY-chromosome has deteriorated the last 200+ million years. But the notion that males would go extinct because of this has been thoroughly refuted.

    Since links are not allowed, just google these headlines of scientific articles: "The y files - Genome British columbia", "Men Not Going Extinct After All - Newser", "Men's Y chromosome is not about to go extinct - NewScientist".

    Also it's falsely suggested that males are more aggressive than females. Google these headlines as well: "Biology Does Not Make Men More Aggressive Than Women - Culture of peace", "Testosterone Does Not Induce Aggression, Study Shows - ScienceDaily".
