Realistically, what would happen to civilization if men disappeared?

If there were only women, I don't see how we wouldn't regress about 12,000 years to an agricultural society or worse. Everything would stop working. The small percentage of capable women would not be enough to maintain our current infrastructure and technology. Knowing this, is it really fair to men, to treat women as equals?

EDIT: Men die off, women can impregnate each other, they only give birth to more women.

Is It Normal?

  • Without men, humanity ceases to exist. Women can't procreate on their own, so they'll keep using stored seemen for artificial insemination, but that won't last forever. The sperm will run out and everyone will die out.


    If women disappeared, men would wage wars and very quickly destroy themselves.

      • Do enlighten me then if you're such a smartass. What part of what I said was stupid? The fact that neither men, or women can't exist without the other, or that we can't engineer babies in a lab from scratch?

        • Ok, research a little.
          The capability has been there for about 50 years.
          In its simplest form.
          It's called cloning.
          What you see in the mainstream is the tip of the iceburg.
          You don't need sperm.
          I'm not for getting rid of men.
          But, from a logical point.
          It is possible.
          BTW, you're insulting language proves my point.
          ( you aren't ready for this topic )
          Profanity is the first defense people who can't debate result to.
          1 profanity
          2 Raised Volume.
          3 Threats.
          4 Act of violence.
          Like a gorilla at the zoo.
          If you cant reason something out, you get angry and defensive, then attack.
          Save yourself a lot of trouble.
          Think before you speak.

          • Insulting language? I'm using blunt sarcasm. If you think that's insulting you're way too sensitive to be on here. Also I have read about cloning and parthenogenesis.

            In my comment I talked about a worst case scenario. Even if the surviving women in our little dystopia figure out how to do virgin births, or just start cloning each other, the lack of males will effect genetic diversity and our future as a species negatively. Ultimately leading to humanity's demise.

            Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm not, I don't really care, cause this little dystopia ain't happening.

            Also I'm not ready for this?
            You're making it sound like I'm gonna go explore the Mariana trench, instead of waste time online XD

            And finally a tip from me, if you want to look half as smart as you think you are do learn to write properly, instead of trying to talk down to me. Never seen anyone who needs a new line for every other word.

    • It's interesting that all of the answers emphasize the importance of women to reproduction and keeping men company.

      • Why wouldn't anyone emphasize the importance of women to reproduction?? Women aren't just important to reproduction, they're vital! Same with men!

      • Did you not read what I wrote?

        Neither can survive without the other... Women can't keep getting pregnant without men and their sperm. Sperm banks will run out and put an end to humanity. A woman's eggs are useless without sperm.

        Men can't do anything without a woman to get pregnant. A man's sperm is useless without an egg to impregnate.

        It's just men are naturally more violent than women. So without the company and sometimes very rational advice from women, we'd blast ourselves into oblivion, because we realize we can't survive and have nothing to lose.

        Better than the fate of an all female world, slowly dying out over hundreds of years.

        Cause even if science finds out a way to recreate genetic material, it will be flawed, because of lack of diversity and randomness in the genetic material. If babies are engineered from scratch, they will be flawed and possibly grotesque looking things that won't survive too long.

        Think inbreeding, just on robotic steroids.

  • The question should be "what would happen without men if women could reproduce on their own."

  • Breeding would stop. Civilization would end.

    • This. I'm guessing this is the island girl asking this. Why the hatred of men. Women aren't all that great either. Look at all the mean cunts that frequent this site.

  • Obviously at first there would be chaos, but that'd be the case whether it was all the women or the men that disappeared. There'd be panic, rioting, looting, etc. A lot of industries that were filled with mostly men would start to go neglected and there'd have to be huge efforts to preserve the knowledge of those industries. Eventually though things would calm down, and women would start to fill the roles that were traditionally male. In a couple generations things would stable.

    One way for women to make a lot of money in this society would be to have gender reassignment surgery (even though they're not trans) and then to be a prostitute. They could easily become millionaires, but they'd destroy their looks.

  • What would happen if no women were alive tho? Women calm men down. They are the perfect balance for each other. Men need women. Before I met my wife I was wild as hell. She chilled me out. This is all speculation coming out of my ass but i do believe it to be true.

  • If they had a deadline. They would probs make every man ejaculate at least 3 times a day until whatever happens to the men happens. At that point they could extend the human race for thousands of millions of years. Maybe they have enough time to recreate males/monkey hybrid to procreate with... holy fuck what the hell did i just write.

  • The feral man, long ago, domesticated himself. He then domesticated other men. These men then domesticated feral women, dogs and every other creature on earth.

    Man is the maker of civilization. Without men, all that man tamed would become feral once more. And it wouldn't be pretty.

  • I think society would be different, and there would be certain areas that would have slips in civilization. For instance, women don't perform as well as men in engineering and mathematics, but they thrive in industries like child care, and nursing. So maybe we'd see a more compassionate system? Also I think there would be less war, and a long term possibility for humanity to come together through non-aggressive means.

    I think a big problem would be that if we ever did come in contact with alien life (Which might sound impossible, but statistically it's very likely there's some out there,) and said alien life was warlike, then humanity would be fucked.

  • Humanity would die out. There would be sperm banks, so perhaps there could be a small next generation from that. Though, that generation would be both men and women. The idea of there being a society with only women would be impossible biologically.

  • You can't have one without the other if men were gone how would women reproduce same thing if it were only dudes.

    So the human race would die if either gender wasn't around.

  • The number spiders would grow to such a large quantity, without a man to kill them, that the spiders would wind up eating all of the women.

  • That question is not as stupid as some may think. Technology will one day enable women to reproduce without the help of men as it is biologically possible and does happens in some species - check it out?
