Interesting post Natasha. Perhaps we should take a more proactive approach
and always refer to all cyborgs in the feminine gender. We did that since
forever with ships. I don't see why it couldn't apply to cyborgs.
... Usually this means that a woman (whose instincts are to nurture and
protect offspring), now reaching outside the body to nurture and protect
life. As with Rachel Carson, a scientist, whose chrysalis brought her
deeper into the rigor of scientific study...Natasha Vita-More
OK but as a word of caution, do avoid hoots of derision from using Rachel
Carson as an example of rigor in scientific study. A far better example
would be Madame Curie.
