Of and they are saying to each other there's little break room with think he's well liked here. Which offer a course. In post humanism and somebody across the table goes. That's a formed. And that may create a course on something that doesn't even exist right this is why and number eight academic. Host humanism or trends humanism the standard term crop is the view that we ought to try to develop in ways that are safe and ethical. Technological means that will in able the exploration. Of the post human realm of possible modes of being. I NY. I didn't make any sense that don't act like it it it is all avenues in the census for example to refer to a critique of humanism. In the size change in our understanding of the self. And its relations to the natural world society of human artifacts. Here here's the change in the understanding itself. That I would like for all of us to engage him and perhaps start a detail. I would like for all of us. To get onto this earth. Do we can in our 30475. Years on it. To try to leave it is slightly better place than the way we found. And quit digging around. Just. These people and then a week now. I don't know who it's for courts they were to alleviate the more immediate sources of human suffering. And want to fill the days of responsible trans humanist and others who strive to improve. The human condition from the tax fine yes most humans are zombies. Oh after human. It lowers the. Thing if she goes here. I am and I wanna go see your concerts man that's when her so. I think we heard about what she's doing now. She. Is raising her child children and gender neutral. And hot pink tells People Magazine that she does not want to impose traditional gender roles. On her two children sexual daughter willow an eleven month old son. Jamison. Quoting here. We are a very label less health soul the putts are set of her family with. Motorcycle racer Carey Hart. They carry. Scott parks sheiks cores and you last week and Coke quoting from pink here last week willow told me she is. Going to marry an African woman I was like rate can you teach me how to make African food. And she's like sure mama and we're gonna live with you while our house is getting ready. The singer also shared her reaction to seeing a gender neutral bathroom in his school I was in his school in the bath from outside the kindergarten said gender neutral anybody.

The singer was applauded earlier this year which delivered heartwarming speech of the amaze which explain the true meaning of beauty Edward daughter. After the sexual told her I'm the ugly is girl I know and that she looks like a boy. In the speech pink recount of the story saying well what do you think I look like and she said well you're beautiful and I was like wolf thanks. But when people make fun of me that's what they use they say I look like a boy arrived too masculine or I have too many opinions my body is too strong.

What's the problem. What is the problem. With you being a woman and me being I think what she's saying. If Monday. Is that her daughter was being bullied. And they were saying she didn't look a certain way Richard signing bully because you didn't look this way it's a real hard to believe that inks kid gets bullied at school now. Ruined your mom is paid and they're gonna bully you at school there's not a kid. Med school doesn't wanna be your best friend get your mom's. I'm I'm kinda hard to believe. Some of those kids have no idea who think it is and depending on where she goes to school. There. Parents might be something cooler like athletes or bigger stars. Than panic.

Some drugs that don't use them as compares it he came out if they decide how odd that there's never touched it out of the you know he he. That's that's why he's out.
