# 性别与未来

xenofeminism 以下简称 XF

## anti-naturalism

XF和玩解构的那套不同的是，肯定了生理上男女性别的存在，但性别是可hack的。要将妇女从生育中解放出来（from the tyranny of reproduction by every means possible）。在性别政治方面考虑除了性别外的多方面因素，比如种族、阶级等等。（We believe that traits associated not just with gender, but also with race, class, able-bodiedness, and so on, are unevenly loaded with social stigma, and often contribute to cultures of inequality.

Biology is not destiny, because biology itself can be technologically transformed, and should be transformed in the pursuit of reproductive justice and the progressive transformation of gender.

## gender abolitionism

XF所说的废止性别，更多的是废止性别二元论，所以拿社会主义目标作了个比方： just as the end goal of socialist revolution was not only the elimination of the economic class privilege but of the economic class distinction itself, so the end goal of feminist revolution must be [. . .] not just the elimination of male privilege but of the sex distinction itself: genital difference between human beings would no longer matter culturally

Secondly, the phrase ‘gender abolitionism’ risks coming across as a demand for the paring back of gender – a demand that difference itself be abolished. This is not what we are advocating for at all. XF is not a call for gender austerity, but for gender post-scarcity! It does not seek ‘the eradication of what are currently considered “gendered” traits from the human population’ – not least because, under current conditions, ‘such a project could only spell disaster – the notion of what is “gendered” sticks disproportionately to the feminine’. If anything, it is the restrictions upon gendered identity that we want to see scrapped; the tenacious binary thinking that continues to funnel identities into male and female, feminine and masculine, despite the obvious paucity of this model. Far from producing a genderless world, then, this form of abolition through proliferation is suggestive of a multiply gendered world. Xenofeminism is gender abolitionist in the sense that it rejects the validity of any social order anchored in identities as a basis of oppression, and in the sense that we embrace sexuate diversity beyond any binary.

## gender hacking & gynepunk

gender hacking里的开源药物概念有点像平时我们所说的开源软件。由于互联网的发展，gender hacking已经初具规模，但是目前还是停留在灰色地带，比如暗网买药之类的。现在互联网上已经有一小部分DIY-HRT社区，通过药物对自己体内的性激素进行改造、对身体进行探索，通过3d打印等等科学技术让人类有更多嵌入式的器官。

To trade in the rule of bureaucrats for the market is, however, not a victory in itself. These tides need to rise higher. We ask whether the idiom of ‘gender hacking’ is extensible into a long-range strategy, a strategy for wetware akin to what hacker culture has already done for software. [. . .] Without the foolhardy endangerment of lives, can we stitch together the embryonic promises held before us by pharmaceutical 3D printing (‘Reactionware’), grassroots telemedical abortion clinics, gender hacktivist and DIY-HRT forums, and so on, to assemble a platform for free and open source medicine?

In addition to helping under-served communities (including sex workers, migrants, and trans* people) to circumnavigate medical gatekeepers, the GynePunk project espouses a positive ethos of corporeal self experimentation. It views the body as ‘a technology to be hacked, from the established ideas of gender and sex, to exploring the capacity to start researching ourselves, to find our own ideas and technologies, to help us be free, autonomous and independent from the system’.
