1) Homo means "a human being" in Latin.
2) According to Merriam-Webster, the first use was in 1591.
3) "Fortunately, the data for children raised by only females is encouraging. As the Princeton sociologist Sara S. McLanahan has shown, poverty is what hurts children, not the number or gender of parents." -- according to Charles Murray's "Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010" (which I did not read yet, just bits & pieces), only 5% of children are born to single mothers among college educated women, yet it is 40% among women with high school education (both values are for whites). Obviously there's an earning/income disparity between the two groups (on average); if "poverty is what hurts children", then this trend is moving exactly the wrong direction.
4) I can't imagine how can he, as a geneticist, personify the egg ("you") based purely on the difference of mass between it and the nuclear genetic material carried by the sperm ("just an infinitesimally small packet of DNA, less than one-millionth of your mass", "father's 3.3 picograms of DNA"). An egg is like a computer with half of its "preloaded" software missing: looks like a computer, weighs like a computer... and utterly useless as a computer.
5) Then comes the nod toward himself and his father, then a generic statement about fathers being a great benefit, followed by a non sequitur.
6) "With human cloning technology just around the corner and enough frozen sperm in the world to already populate many generations" -- cloning doesn't provide genetic variety: it is essentially non-sexual reproduction with all what that entails (only random mutations can drive evolution which provides magnitudes less ability to adapt than sexual reproduction). If frozen sperm is used, that's artificial insemination, not cloning; and upon what criteria does she select which sperm to use for the offspring? If photos/videos/health info, wouldn't every woman try to have an offspring by a few "alpha" donors? Or is there going to be a sperm lottery? How about the male offspring? Or will be all sperm individually checked and discarded if contains the "unneeded" Y chromosome?
7) "Meanwhile women live longer, are healthier and are far less likely to commit a violent offense." -- would this stay that way if men disappeared? Obviously there wouldn't be comparison to "unneeded" and as such nonexistent men, but these measurements could deteriorate compared to their current values (especially violence: although overt sexual competition wouldn't be an issue, but competition for all other resources would remain and fall entirely on "the gentler sex").
Apart from these, a puff piece with low-grade wit.
