Transgender bathroom debate opens floodgates to transhumanism

(TriceEdneyWire.com) – Unless you are comfortable with your little girls or women sharing bathrooms with men, you have a right to be angry about the president’s new transgender bathroom directives to public schools that allow persons to use restrooms based on how they self-identify rather than the gender stated on their birth certificates.

What you are seeing now is small potatoes, however, to what’s really boiling in the bigger pot. In other words, you haven’t seen nothing yet.

The more radical wing of the transgender movement involves not only creating a totally genderless culture but also embracing transhumanism a technology-based philosophy which allows people to adopt different physical forms, such as marrying robots and forming families with digitally created avatars and eventually defying death itself.

“Freedom of gender is the gateway to a freedom of form and to an explosion of human potential, where a penis will not define a person, no more than human flesh. Based upon our rapidly accelerating technological ability to imbue software with human personality and self-awareness that thinks and acts like a human, we must understand we are no more limited by our sexual anatomy than our human anatomy, writes Martine Rothblatt. She is a transgendered woman and a leading proponent of the transhumanist movement.

Rothblatt, is someone whose lifestyle opens a window to not only transgenderism but also transhumanism, an emerging movement whose disciples often revere technology as their god who will liberate them from the prison of their own bodies, allowing them to duplicate and recreate themselves through technology and conquer disease and, one day, death itself.

Martine, a Jewish lawyer, author, entrepreneur and futurist was born Martin, but has been married to her wife Bina, an African-American woman former real estate agent straight out of Compton for 33 years. Together, they have four children. A founder of Sirius Satellite Radio, she flies her own helicopter up and down the East Coast to preside over her $5 billion United Therapeutics corporation, a publicly traded Silver Spring MD-based pharmaceutical corporation.   

“Ironically she has been declared the highest paid female executive in the United States,” according to the September 7, 2014 edition of New York Magazine.

Even more interesting, according to the magazine’s profile, she has commissioned a company to design a robot to resemble her wife Bina. Bina48, the robot version, is a head and shoulder bust with real like facial skin that is loaded with interviews of Bina and her favorite songs, so that when she dies there will be much of her that lives on.

“Martine’s ideas are mainstream,” said Dr. James Hughes, who presides over the Institute for Ethical and Emerging Technologies. “It is just a matter of time – and some think soon – where we can record our personality and brain activities and transfer them into computers and share our consciousness across platforms. In the future, we will have control over our body, reproduce without sex and even genetically change the race we were born with.”

Hughes says that both transhumanism and transgenderism express a common understanding that the body we were born with have limitations and technology allows us to transcend those limitations. If a male wants to come to work in a dress that person should have that right to do so even without making any changes to the body because technology is freeing society from the way people think about gender and sexuality.”

Already, the move to create a genderless society is circulating through our schools. For example, Fairfax County Virginia Public Schools, one of the nation’s largest public school systems, has proposed adding gender identity to its classroom curriculum, including lessons on sexual fluidity and spectrum – the idea that there’s no such thing as 100 percent boys or 100 percent girls. The underlining ideology – vigorously opposed by parent groups – teaches that you can be both genders, no gender, or whatever gender you call yourself.

In middle school, students would be provided definitions for sexual orientation terms heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality; and the gender identity term transgender, the district’s recommendations state.

“Emphasis will be placed on recognizing that everyone is experiencing changes and the role of respectful, inclusive language in promoting an environment free of bias and discrimination,” it states.

Society has nothing to fear from transgendered persons, said Hughes. Since transgendered persons make up less than 0.3 percent of the population, that kind of fear is irrational.

“A little boy has much more to fear from peeing next to a straight man than a transgendered person,” said Hughes.

The problem with this argument does not rest solely with a transgendered persons, who I believe after having surgical reassignment should be allowed to use appropriate facilities. My problem is the bathroom doors, under the president’s proposal, would be flung open to any man who on any given day says he is a woman. That gives carte blanche to predators, proposed rapists and others who would prey on our women and children.

President Obama’s staff and visitors now have the option of using a gender-neutral restroom, a White House spokesman has announced – the latest in a series of symbolic steps the Obama administration has taken in support of the LGBT community. That is little comfort, of course, for most of us would not have the type of security normally associated with the White House.

Even so, the toilet fuss is just the tip of an emerging movement that is combining transgenderism with transhumanism and is quietly working to change virtually everything while the majority of pastors, preachers and even parents in failing to protest this are rendering silent agreement.
