    She can't be a Darwin award nominee, she's still in the gene pool.

    Ahem.

    If she rendered herself sterile, then she still wins a Darwin Award. Sterility also counts as removing oneself from the gene pool.

    I liked this comment:
    And to be picky, sterility or fool-hardiness also benefits the overall gene pool, either through altruism (as in gay people, gay animals, gay beetles etc) or through the risky discovery of new things (astronauts, explorers, inventors etc)

    Well, at the very least, it's an honorable mention.
