Women have become occupied territory, like the Americas in the 1500s. Women are fighting to hold on to their sex-segregated spaces, just as the indigenous sought to hold on to their land, many of them not even realizing that destroying sex-segregated spaces is not the colonizers’ ultimate objective. Rich corporatists have already settled the desired area and are poised for continued extraction of resources. Men’s claims on segregated spaces, such as women’s bathrooms and prisons, are like planting a flag after the work has been done; this is not the colonization itself. The occupied territory is female biology, specifically reproductive capacities. Corporatists use the religion of gender identity in much the same way the early colonialists of the Americas used Christianity to ”save souls”, setting up missionaries just like the LGBT non-governmental organizations are setting up gender camps and institutions for the new woke religion. Both have laid the groundwork to mine, extract, and ultimately destroy by tranquilizing the colonized with dreams of salvation. Women’s bodies are the new territories that are conquered for profit. Queer theory is here to save people from the "heterosupremacy" of sexual dimorphism, while the corporate colonists plunder the new land.
It’s not just womanhood on which these encampments have been established, but human sex itself. While men’s reproductive capacities (one sperm cell is all that’s required to create life) are extracted and mined, women’s biology is taken over and deconstructed. Calling this process a human rights movement is psychological warfare.
This occupation and colonization of female biology is not metaphysical. It is not happening just linguistically or legally, but in material reality.
Marina Terragni, writing for RadFem Italia this year, reports on the rising ratio of males pretending to be females versus females pretending to be males. Marking the differences in choice, she writes, “An important difference: While among males pretending to be females (MtFs), the use of hormonal therapies and surgery—castration—is increasingly rare in favor of a self-identification that keeps the body intact (self-ID), females pretending to be males (FtMs) very frequently resort to chemical support and double mastectomy or top surgery (much less frequently than the construction of a pseudo-male sex).
“On the symbolic level,” she continues, “both types of transition tell the same story. It is always about the cancellation of the female body.”
I venture that this cancellation is not symbolic. Women—their biology—are literally being cancelled, deconstructed, erased, and stolen via technology and the profiteers using it.
In 2019, Dr. Giancarlo McEvenue, hired by the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical giant, spoke to a rapt audience about removing healthy young females’ breasts for purposes of identity. In 2018, an ob/gyn at UCLA gave a presentation of the various types of hysterectomies performed on young women who want to be men. Over 40,000 young women are begging for money on the financial campaigning app GoFundMe to have their breasts removed—sacrifices to the gender identity gods.
Reporting for NPR in 2018, Michaeleen Doucleff alerted us to the rising rates of surgeons performing cesarean sections around the world. “Since 1990, C-sections have more than tripled from about 6 percent of all births to 21 percent, three studies report in The Lancet. In America, the national average jumped to 32 percent in 2015–a 540 percent increase over the course of one generation. The rates for Brazilian women are even higher, Brazil having the highest rate of surgical deliveries in the world. The C-section rate for women in private hospitals in Brazil skyrockets to 80–90%. While many women are resisting this tech takeover of reproduction, for elites, cesarean births have become a status symbol.
“It’s a money machine,” reports one woman who felt pressured into having a cesarean birth. “C-sections can be easily scheduled and quickly executed, so doctors schedule and bill as many as eight procedures a day rather than wait around for one or two natural births to wrap up.” The World Health Organization has long campaigned to reduce elective C-sections, which are nearly twice as deadly for mothers than natural births and require longer recovery times for mothers and babies, but profiteering rules the day.
Maria do Carmo Leal, a researcher at the National Public Health School at the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation in Brazil, says, “[T]he high C-section rate reflects an extreme manifestation of a medical culture that treats delivery as a health problem and not as a natural process.” This is the same industry creating a health crisis out of the natural puberty of healthy children via gender identity ideology, medicalizing their normal sexual growth processes, that in turn feeds the tech reproduction industry.
Once the concept of “trans” children is normalized and institutionalized, as it is now by large NGOs like Arcus and Open Society Foundations, the sterilization that goes with the medicalization of their identities turns them into capital for Big Fertility. Though the market in fertility treatments for people who pretend to be the opposite sex is still small, fertility preservation start-ups for these individuals are already taking shape. With the market for genitalia surgeries for identity purposes set to reach into the billions by 2026, and more young people ingest wrong-sex hormones, these start-ups, like their gender clinic predecessors, are bound to proliferate.
Gender ideology promotes the deconstruction of sexual dimorphism and normalizes disassociation, so people become comfortable with more invasive forms of technological reproductive procedures. This ideology grooms an entire generation of children to dissociate from their sexed bodies. Children are taught that their sexual reproduction is a separate process from who and what they are.
The gender industry has reached its current apex in the surrogacy industry, often funded by the same corporatists and billionaires—like Marc Benioff—who drive the gender industry, by funding clinics to medicalize children’s natural puberty. Benioff has also invested in Overture Life, focused on automating the embryology lab, making in-vitro fertilization more accessible than ever. Jeff Bezos is another billionaire investing in Big Fertility. In 2019, Amazon launched its first fertility center. The Bezos family recently donated $166 million dollars to Langone Hospital, one of nine hospitals in Brooklyn, NY, performing surgeries on people’s genitals for identity purposes. The surrogacy industry interfaces intricately with the LGBTQ community and the gender industry as lesbian and gay couples, plus individuals who have had their reproductive capacities ruined with drugs and surgery to pretend to be the opposite sex, clamor to have children who are biologically related to them.
Jennifer Lahl, the founder and president of The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network, produced a powerful film trilogy about the surrogacy industry that catalogs the harms wrought by the commercialization and exploitation of women for their eggs and wombs, and the multimillion-dollar sperm donor market.
A new tech start-up chronicling surrogates and egg donors in a database has recently raised a million dollars in capital from US and Israeli investors.
This colonization of sexed bodies for profit drives the current attacks on women worldwide. Like indigenous people centuries before, women have become the “brutal savages” in the way of progress (extraction from their own bodies). The hatred fueled against women for naming these attacks for what they are is necessary to the colonization process.
Using women’s eggs, and women themselves as wombs, is only the current apex of the gender industry, which seeks a tech takeover of reproduction. There is yet another pinnacle to which the corporatists strive that will consummate female erasure and a population that reaches beyond its human bounds. Israeli scientists, reported The Guardian in 2021, have successfully gestated hundreds of mice inside an artificial womb. They placed newly fertilized eggs inside glass vials rotating in a ventilated incubator and grew the embryos for 11 days—the mid-point of a mouse pregnancy—outside their mothers’ bodies. The Guardian examines reproduction without pregnancy, which is a pursuit of prominent transsexuals such as Martine Rothblatt and Petra De Sutter, along with other men who pretend to be women and are interested in lactation, feeding children with their chests and having womb transplants.
Rothblatt, author of the first “gender bill,” who I have written about here and here, covers the topic of technological reproduction in his book Unzipped Genes, based on his work on the Human Genome Project.
Petra De Sutter is at the center of the UK movement for “altruistic surrogacy.” A Belgian gynecologist and politician representing the Green Party, he has been a Deputy Prime Minister in the government of Prime Minister Alexander De Croo since 2020. He has also worked as professor of gynecology at Ghent University and head of the Department of Reproductive Medicine at Ghent University Hospital. He is the first transsexual minister in Europe. In addition to his role in the Senate, De Sutter served as member of the Belgian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe from 2014 until 2019. He served as the Assembly’s rapporteur on children’s rights in relation to surrogacy arrangements (2016) and on the use of new genetic technologies in human beings (2017). In 2018, De Sutter discussed gene editing, transhumanism, and the future of technological reproduction—sans women—in a TEDxTalk.
Women’s bodies are occupied territories, already being mined in the surrogacy industry. Their wombs are used, their eggs are harvested and preserved, their fallopian tubes and uteruses are surgically removed (a third of women have hysterectomies) and their healthy breasts are amputated. All of this is framed as progress. This is rapidly being normalized.
It is not enough for us to fight for our sex-segregated spaces because we want safety. Where is there to hide when the entire world is set up to surveil our sexed bodies and to humiliate us into submission? It is not space we need. We need to reclaim the boundaries of our bodies. We have been denigrated, humiliated by the porn industry, and used in the sex trade. Men are wearing facsimiles of our sexed bodies as their own, speaking out of mouths that call themselves feminist, that say they are women; they are speaking not just for women, but as women.
This is what corporatists are fighting for: an erasure of boundaries so they can invade us entirely. It is precisely why trans rights activists cannot tolerate the idea of third options for restrooms and prisons.
Women’s fear of speaking up and calling this out while there may still be time to help others see and understand must be overcome. Big Fertility is growing fast.
The gender industry and Big Fertility, and what they do to women will dwarf prostitution, porn, and the sex trades. There will be nothing left of our bodies when those driving the industries that deconstruct sexual dimorphism for profit have the keys to the kingdom, when they have eviscerated us and taken our reproductive capacities, our sex, replaced it with technology, and left us as empty husks.
