Quote from: Opening line of the article.
Using stem cell technology, reproductive scientists in Texas...
That made me do a double-take.  I mean, who knew?
AFAIK the Houston Medical Center is the biggest in the world. It's not surprising that many cutting edge things are done there.

It's not the cutting edge part that surprised me, it's the stem-cell part.  I can think at least one very prominent Texas resident who'll probably spit out his coffee when he hears this on the news.

Why would you link that.

It's IPSC technology, so it doesn't involve embryos. Not even the staunchest opponents of ESC research oppose that
And it's mice, which makes the whole point moot.

Besides, ESC research is not banned or anything in the US. In fact, AFAIK it is receiving federal funding at the moment, after Judge Chickenbrain Lamberth's block on that was lifted. I don't think ESC research in Texas is any exception, though, again, it doesn't apply in the current context.

That would mean their family tree separates from the rest of the world before the sexes split, wouldnt' it? I don't think their line is quite that old.
No.  When males and females originally split (I think it might've happened a few times independantly?), both genders were the same in terms of chromosonal shape.  Just now the male chromosone has degraded horribly into a stunted little Y.

Wait, so we can make man-babbys and lady-babbys?

My plan will soon come to fruition
