if human males could clone themselves, I must conclude that the gene pool would get very small and eventually those people would die off.

Cloning is only practical in cell divisory organisms. Protozoa , bacterium, etc. Cutting an earthworm in half could constitute cloning.

The closest thing to cloning in organisms that are hermaphrodites with two sets of sex organs , male and female. Auto insemination.

One can't get away from ovum and fertilization after that.
