I didn’t even know they were oppresed already!

Here’s a fun little article from The Village Voice about the World Transhumanist Association. In reality, they’re about a lot more than just cyborgs, but that’s what we’re closest to right now. But, should they get their say, bioengineered life and artificial intelligences would get similar protections. These folks are really forward thinking, in my opinion, since you’d have to define “cyborg” pretty loosely to even get close with current technology. And, as for AI or “genenginered” beings, well…. But, at least they make good fodder for science-fiction! Either way, enjoy the article.
