Come to think of it, our propensity to "strike a pose" in front of an object has a certain next nature quality to it in its own right. I doubt early hominids posed on the edge of the Olduvai Gorge to have their picture scraped onto a rock!

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.
