The Internet IS transgender

Postby Cherry Cola Lola » Sun Nov 19, 2017 12:15 am

Dr Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist who according to New York Magazine is one of the smartest 100 people in the universe, on the same list with Madonna, ya, he's that smart. :lol: Anyway, was listening to one of his lectures and he made the assertion, in so many words, that the internet itself was transgender.

When physicists invented the internet, it was a tool of war, specifically it was a safety net of sorts, should we actually experience a nuclear attack. It should be no mystery as to why the pentagon paid researchers billions to come up with it. The internet was not designed for us to exchange email and porn links. It was a way for us to communicate during war and specifically to rebuild, say, New York or Los Angeles, should such a tragedy befall us. In this regard, it was a very male or aggressive tool.

Since the cold war with Russia, the internet has become female, in others words, it's used to reach out and touch oher people. Now we use it for the exchange of ideas or porn or art or simply communicating with loved ones. It's used now as a tool for nurturing and education which of course has lead to all of you, well, all of you on the internet. TGForums and those like it are perhaps the most accurate and ultimate expression of this concept.

To extend this idea even further, EVERYONE is trans, to some degree. Even those cisgendered people with no desire to be perceived as the other gender, can usually come up with a small laundry list of things they'd like to transform about their own body. Bigger muscles, broader shoulders, more hair on the head, bigger breasts, you get the idea. In that regard, we are all trans.

Also consider that in the future, and with the technological explosion or singularity, modern humans will probably look very little like those of us today. We are likely to have all sorts of technologically advanced enhancements if not out right robotic bodies impervious to death. Enhanced strength, enhanced sensory perceptions, enhanced beauty and better information, all while connected to the cloud of human knowledge. Augmented reality is in our future and the transgender movement is perhaps just the most obvious first steps into the new reality. Trans"Whatever" is soon to be the new norm. Perhaps we're just harbingers of the new age. Embrace it!

I am a Transvestwhite and would ask that you use my preferred racial pronoun, "human."

The internet is an inanimate object. Cis people are cis. Trans people are trans. this is dumb.

I wouldn't have said it quite that way :)
If you are verbally mean to me, I will verbally bite you back.
If you attempt to chastise me for verbally biting someone who was verbally mean to me, I'll verbally bite you too. Don't be quoting me rules either.

This is a total load of nonsense. The Internet is just a super-network connecting networks together. It's not a person. It's not even an object. Claiming that the "Internet is transgender" is like saying that the cellular network is a bald eagle; it's complete nonsense.

"One of the smartest 100 people in the universe" my foot.

I'd also like to point out that the justification for calling the Internet "transgender" is misandrist. Men are not violent war animals.

To extend this idea even further, EVERYONE is trans, to some degree.

Even more nonsensical. Getting bigger muscles is not "transitioning" in the sense that "transgender" means. There is no change of outwardly expressing gender involved.
