How does my belief that transhumanism is fucked up and will lead us somewhere worse mesh with my reality as a trans woman interested in GCS and taking lab-made anti-androgens? I don’t know, but that’s me.
Because the hormones in us already don’t belong to us. Others will have power over the technologies put into our bodies. If we take “trans” as “beyond”, that doesn’t have to mean “better than”. Transhumanism will take us even further away from humanism because it will be conducted according to the values of the day - it will belong to the military, the corporations and the outsourced state (so that’s the corporations x 3, then).
Edit: Here’s a thing (by a dude, mostly citing dudes) that kinda covers it. For something more resistant, try Chela Sandoval’s US Third World Feminism, or her full-length book/manual/manifesto, Methodology of the Oppressed.
Hmm this one’s even closer! Chela Sandoval again: http://www.scribd.com/doc/237278424/New-Sciences-Cyborg-Feminism-and-Oppressed
