Including the STD's. Or better U(sb)TD's. I would never plug that in my computer. Think of all the viruses you will definitely catch.

It's like a digital glory hole.

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.
