In light of this single woman who had 8 babies in vitro with no man in the picture makes me wonder about the diminishing role of guys in families raising kids and society in general. There was an interesting statistic about how men were disproportionately being laid off in this recession because most blue collar jobs being eliminated in this country and being replaced by more service or hospitality oriented jobs traditionally held and run by women. Women are becoming the main bread winners of families, women are choosing to have babies without the need of a husband with in vitro fertilization and sperm donors, many of the families are already run by single mom's with no guy in the picture, and more women than men are going to college these days. Is the American male becoming irrelevant? Can society just get by fine without having us around?
