FEMINISM GONE WILD: Saffron Walden author explores the opposite of sex in dystopian debut At the age of 50 Katrina Mountfort's first science fiction novel, Future Perfect, is being published this month by Elsewhen Press. Mountfort's book paints a picture of a dystopian future (not particularly novel), but with a twist. Human life is threatened by antagonism to masculinity. Sexual coupling is banned and all children are grown from stem cells. Only the most androgynous of men and women are allowed to reproduce. Men with facial hair and women with breasts don't qualify to remain in the gene pool. And fatties (either gender) are right out! The gene pool becomes enfeebled and the stem cells of the elite become less capable of yielding offspring, a fact hidden from the public.
