Bodies, Desire, and the Future
May this blog be blessed with regular readers and insightful comments.
I saw your (much-needed) comment re the discussion of the hostile wives/cryonics article linked at Accelerating Future and followed your link here. I hope you can succeed in bringing some attention to the casual misogyny and heterocentrism that seems to pervade so much of the singularity community.
Even worse is the activity of men such as billionaire Peter Thiel who is now an “Advisor” for the Singinst. Thiel is a loyal republican and xenophobe in support of crushing immigrant rights despite his own status as a homosexual. Investors such as him will pollute the Singularity’s destiny of helping humanity.
Yes, Thiel certainly worries me.
Girl Cooties Menace the Singularity!
Miranda Wrongs: Reading Too Much into the Genome
Thanks for the first link, Athena. Horrifying stuff, yet unsurprising.
The second one is quality, too. Crude genetic determinism has always bothered me. Your views on the difficulty of biological modification remind me a bit of John Smart’s, though I imagine you dismiss him a Robot Cultist.
