Contributory Info: Postgenderism

In an essay written by Dr. George Dvorsky, futurist and program director of the Rights of Non-Human Persons Program at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET), and Dr. James J. Hughes, Executive Director of IEET, postgenderism is defined as “an extrapolation of ways that technology is eroding the biological, psychological and social role of gender.”  The authors present their argument for why “the erosion of binary gender will be liberatory.”

Dvorsky and Hughes claim that “greater biological fluidity and psychological androgyny will allow future persons to explore both masculine and feminine aspects of personality. Postgenderists do not call for the end of all gender traits, or universal androgyny, but rather that those traits become a matter of choice. Bodies and personalities in our postgender future will no longer be constrained and circumscribed by gendered traits, but enriched by their use in the palette of diverse self-expression.”
