An Inclusive Litany

7/17/00

Barbara Ehrenreich prognosticates in Time magazine, February 21, 2000:
As long as men're taller than most women, we'll probably keep 'em around for retrieving those hard-to-reach items. But in terms of reproduction, the answer is probably no. With the advent of extensive reproductive technology, there will be an ever-diminishing practical need for male-female sexual intercourse. And on the relationship front, instead of investing in traditional, high-risk marriages, people will contract with partners on a short-term, no-hard-feelings basis—with renewals available if all goes well.
