I dunno, this sort of language just bugs me. I don't 'own' my uterus, I have it. I was born with it. It is a part of me. I don't 'own' my eyeballs either. I was born with them, they are a part of me. I didn't go to the store and pick them out. I didn't pay for them. They belong to me.

We already have the technology to feed everyone on the planet but we don’t. Same with medicine and other such amenities for the disabled. So why should I believe that transhumanistic advances would be treated any other way? They’re just fun things for the ultra rich (99% male) to soothe their death anxiety. And they’re also pedophiles looking for a way to create human being who is chronologically of legal age for sexual relationships but physically and mentally early puberty or prepubescent.

Feminists are blamed more for queer theory and transgenderism than Martin Rothblatt is.

They're not just playthings for the rich. They'll make people physically or economically dependent on having a device and then switch from an ownership to lease model. Imagine having to call Comcast for your O2 device, paying a monthly fee for a prosthetic working arm (and having it surgically removed if you can't pay), and poor people offered "free" devices (that will eventually break and be unaffordable to service) so the rich can experiment on us before they upgrade themselves.

The rich will physically enslave us.

Isn’t this Repo! The Genetic Opera?

I don't know! It could be, I've never seen it. Unfortunately a lot of my thoughts are based on what I've actually seen happening ... 😬
