But those wouldn't be anarcho-transhumanists, they'd be capitalist-imperialists. A big reason to support anarcho-transhumanism is to provide a non-oppressive alternative to capitalist-imperialist-transhumanism.

If a political theory doesn't evolve with the times, it will be left behind.

Honestly, that sounds a lot like what would happen to people too poor to afford gene alteration.
Then you should support communist / anarchist transhumanism so that everyone gets access to the technology.

That would only be possible in a world with unlimited resources.
Communism and post-scarcity go hand in hand, so that's not really an issue. There's more than enough for everyone, but capitalists keep it restricted to only the wealthy.
I mean, I didn't decide what 'anarcho-transhumanism' is, it's been pre-defined as a communist, hierarchy-less ideology.
I think part of what's being questioned is whether the definition is even coherent in the first place
like how 'anarcho'-capitalism is also incoherent
since it's not clear that technology of this kind is compatible with anarchy
