Are big corporations really aiming for inclusivity by challenging the binary division between the biological sexes? Or have they simply spotted an opportunity to cash in? We must be on our guard against the latter, warns Jennifer Bilek.
In September, Tampax corporation rolled out an advertisement for their menstrual products attempting to be what they call ‘inclusive’ of all people, which erased females from their ads (both in language and visually). The advert garnered nearly 17,000 likes and 25,000 comments.
This language obfuscation is part and parcel of the burgeoning gender identity industry which seeks to obliterate sexual dimorphism from language. Purportedly this is to make people who think they are, or wish to present themselves as, the opposite sex, comfortable. These individuals make up approx. .06% of the population. It is really interesting that Tampax does not mind making women, who make up more than 50% of the population, and 100% of their consumer base, uncomfortable. Many of the 25,000 comments under the initial ad were by women furious at their erasure and the dehumanizing language used to describe them. Several suggested it was time to boycott Tampax. Why doesn’t women’s fury at their erasure from adverts for products made for their specific biology bother Tampax? Why is it happy to alienate its consumer base by calling them ‘menstruators’ and ‘bleeders’ to be ‘inclusive’?
What Is Happening Here?
What is happening here, is the promotion of the violation of the sex boundary, between human males and females, by Big Pharma and Big Tech, in effort to commoditize sex. We as a species are more profitable as parts, than we are as whole sexed beings. Think: eggs, sperm, transplantable wombs, vaginas for men, penises for women, synthetic breast milk, and more importantly our DNA. Once the boundary of male/female sex is violated and normalized through the ideology of gender identity, the doors swing open for changing human biology in extraordinary ways.
Just ask Jennifer Anne Doudna, a pioneering American biochemist who has played a key role in the developments of the gene editing process called CRISPR, for which she won a Nobel Prize (with her colleague) in chemistry this year. The Adam Bolt film, Human Nature, delved into the genetic manipulation of humans and her part in these experiments. In this film, Doudna describes having a dream, after she had made the significant discovery known as CRISPR, in which someone important wants to see her to learn more about her discovery. In the dream, she is led into an office where she sees a man, sitting in a chair with his back facing toward her. As he turns slowly, he asks her to tell her about her amazing experiments. As he turns to face her, she realizes it is Hitler. In the film, she tells us how the dream impacted her for days afterwards, making her very uncomfortable and forcing her to wonder what she had done by breaking our genetic coding.
In 1997, Martine Rothblatt, the founding father of the transgender empire and an avowed transsexual and transhumanist, published Unzipped Genes, a thesis documenting the ethics of new reproductive technologies, genetic screening and DNA-mapping. Two years earlier, he wrote “From Transgender to Transhuman: A Manifesto on the Freedom of Form.” describing a trajectory taking place in western cultures now, whereby transgenderism becomes the onramp to transhumanism. In 2016, Rothblatt was keynote speaker at the Trans History Forward Movement conference at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. The conference was organized by the Chair of Transgender studies, the first ever position of its kind. Incidentally this post was taken on by successor who, along with his family, is massively invested in the medical industrial complex. During the conference, Rothblatt suggested that "techno transhumanists" use a similar strategy as "techno transgenders," to secure the rights to “bodily autonomy” and create an organization like WPATH, but for transhumanists.
These advancements to human biology, which will evolve once the violation of sex is normalized, via “transgender” ideology, and laws are changed toward more “bodily autonomy” which is what the “transgender “agenda is striving for, will be a bonanza of profits for the medical industrial complex and the technology industries.
This is why corporations really “care.” This is why governments really “care.” This is why banks really “care” about a relatively tiny percentage of the population - because they are anticipating more genetically modified bodies. This is what the “diversity” in the new global, corporate thrust toward “diversity and inclusion,” means. The transformation of humanity is the future and any business that is not on board with the developments will become obsolete. Big Pharma and Tech will see to it, that nothing comes between them and their profit margins.
For people concerned about this future, Boycotting Tampax will not get them very far. Women, their sole customers, are not the future. Genetically modified humans are the future, as are the profits for the medical industrial complex. Tampax is one brand of many in the powerhouse conglomerate that is P&G (Proctor and Gamble). Already invested in pharmaceuticals, in 2018, P&G completed an acquisition of Merck’s Consumer Health Unit, a health business worth 3.8 billion dollars, marking the companies next steps in a strategic future focus on science and technology.
It will be up to the women and men who understand what is really happening behind the big corporate’s embrace of ‘inclusivity’ and the rainbow flag to find another way to challenge the corporate profiteers. This will be a fight to avoid being the consumed as well as the consumers.
