Disasters Like From A Movie

Two disasters in New York, with the Emirpe state in view. In The Day After Tomorrow, a Hollywood blockbuster about climate change, New York is submerged by a catastrophic flood. The other photo was taken on 11 September 2001, the day the world watched the World Trade Center towers crumble after two hijacked planes crashed into them. It almost seemed like a movie. Ironically, when reality hits hardest, we start referring to things we've seen in films to cope with the situation.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
