I finally have enough money to start this project I'm wokring on. Ordering equipment friday, and hopefully within the next few months I'll engineered myself some ovaries.

People really shouldn't be afraid of genetic/cybernetic augmentation. We're far more likely to destroy the planet in the beginning stages of developing that infrastructure than actually achieving it in any sort of meaningful sense.

Both transhumanism and primitivism break apart due to raising Nature and Man to weird religious levels. While transhumanism has a bit more wiggle room for what Man is, that wiggling is it's claim to liberation, while primitivism promises liberation through subservience to Nature. Neither of which are actually liberatory.

This is the shit that made me leave @h+. It's like you took the shittiest parts of technofetishism and technoprogressive nonsense and haphazardly stapled on "but like for everyone!!". Human interactions with technology need to be dismantled and rebuilt in a decentralized fashion otherwise the end result of your "liberation" is just colonialist nonsense painted chrome. Nothing you've said here is actually anything close to resembling theory. It's just fantasizing about some indeterminate time period where this technology will be available to you with no consideration as to how you'd get there. It's the same shit primmies do and it's boring.

Went on a date last night that ended with me making plans for a threesome tonight. Got another date tonight. And tomorrow, and the next day. Gotta go all out before school starts. Otherwise things are the same. Ulcer seems to be doing better.

Oof that struck a nerve didn't it? And no my purpose in this thread was to point out that many anticivs are objectively transphobic. I even stated multiple times throughout this that I agree with most anticiv critiques. Granted that would require you to actually pay the fuck attention. I never said you didn't care about trans lives, not do I think I transhumanists are appropriating trans struggle because guess what dipshit, most of the people talking about trans struggle in that context are fucking trans. Which isn't to say I agree with them or that their take is useful. It's not. In fact I'd say it's harmful. But that's worlds away from appropriation.

I don't fancy myself anything eloquent or not. But if your embodiment is a trans woman with a decidedly egoist and anticiv bent then it sounds to me like you don't really know what the fuck your talking about.

As an aside ziq? Is this you trying to bring defasher back I feel like I've had this conversation before.

There's a difference between that and lashing out at assumptions you've made about me. You seem to be really fucking upset that I'm not buying your anticiv line wholesale. Or that I clearly have a much better understanding of transhumanism than you do, which puts me in the position of being to disagree with it and actually know what I'm disagreeing with. But whatever if you want to think you "got me" because it makes you feel clever and above the board then have at it. Playing your ego game isn't interesting to me anymore.

There's a difference between me not wanting to engage with you and not engaging honestly. As far as I know I haven't only responded to you with out downs. In fact I answered honestly and in good faith in most this thread. It's you who are volatile and if I might say, a bit sensitive. I haven't attacked you. To use your word. Chill.
