Autism linked to age of Father

This is interesting. Women who choose to have children later in life take a lot of flack for the increased risk of birth defects, particularly mental handicap. Now it seems sperm doesn't age any better than ovum.

Will men choosing to father children in their forties or later now face the same kind of stigma and sniffy disapproval as women making the same choice?

Insert hollow laugh here.
