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.
