Transhumanism is the theory and practice of guiding humanity's evolution past its current social, physical, and mental limitations.
The culture and infrastructure of our rigid, cancerous, and sedentary civilization is rotten to the core, but 'technology' is not one monolithic thing.

In 'A Cyborg Manifesto', Donna Haraway criticizes traditional notions of feminism, particularly its emphasis on identity, rather than affinity. She explores the potential of the cyborg concept in order to construct a postmodern feminism that moves beyond dualisms and the limitations of traditional gender, feminism, and politics.
These are overviews and gateways to critiques of uncritically embraced arguments within the anti-civ milieu.

Consistent radicals reject arbitrary lines between 'enhancement' and 'treatment': there is no objectively ideal body or single direction of progress, rather what matters most is choice and possibilities.
