A modest fantasy

So does anyone else have mad scientist fantasies after reading stories of misogynistic cultures around the world? I mean we're not that far from being able to create a retrovirus that modifies the human germline and chops off parts of the Y chromosome that triggers differentiating into the male body template. (Maybe it can add the missing leg that would turn it into an X chromosome as well.)

Then one can sit in ones castle, illuminated by lightening laughing at places like the Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, homes of the Christian Coalition types. Ha. You think women are inferior, what happens to your abusive patriarchal culture if there aren't any men.

Or am I the only one who thinks things like that?

(And more practically we also aren't that far from being able to use one woman's egg to fertilize another egg, so one could have a female-only society. On the down side, if one person can construct such viruii, others can probably undo it. But at least I enjoy the fantasy.)
