    Men are not designed to have babies.

    Dynamo_spark saidMen are not designed to have babies.

    How do you mean "to HAVE babies"? I don't believe the article states that men would actually become pregnant and carry the baby to term. Males do not have the anatomical structures for it. I presume that a woman would still be required to provide a womb.

    What the article discusses is taking a cell from 2 people and combining them to begin the reproduction process. And this could be from a woman and a man, if the woman was infertile for some reason. And also between 2 men. It does not appear that this would work for 2 women, or if the man was infertile in the case of a male-female couple, however, since the article seems to indicate that 1 male sperm cell is always still required for this procedure.

    that won't happen, because God will flood the earth.

    or so we can hope.

    yes
    the sperm cells are needed for this sit (this is affirming)
    but
    the egg donor not required.

    wouldn't that mess with the DNA as well that could cause a chain reaction fucking up the human genome

    the gaybie born from the two gay dudes would grown up and maybe marry a woman and then pass on the gaybie DNA from two males to another regular baby but bore from the gaybie and then the process would just keep getting repeated but idk I'm not a "scientist"

    Gay people have been having babies for a very long time.
    Just not with their husbands.

    One theory is that the "gay gene" (if there is such a thing) gets passed down to one's nieces and nephews through their siblings (who carry it). While having an unattached aunt/uncle is evolutionary better for those children.

    And why is a "regular" baby having "gay DNA" and replicating it alarm you?
