Posthumanism you say?

Via Campus Reform

One private Maine college not only requires that the newest addition to its environmental studies program be a champion of “equity and inclusion,” but also hopes that he or she may have some research background in “posthumanism,” “ecofeminism,” or “queer ecologies.”

Queer ecologies? Well, that, you unwoke male is defined thusly

The term “queer ecology” refers to a loose, interdisciplinary constellation of practices that aim, in different ways, to disrupt prevailing heterosexist discursive and institutional articulations of sexuality and nature, and also to reimagine evolutionary processes, ecological interactions, and environmental politics in light of queer theory.

Ecofeminism? What the heck is that? Besides some made up “identity” created by some bitter, reality challenged leftist? When I hear that term,ecofeminism, I envision an angry feminist, naked and screaming obscenities at trees she perceives to be male. Naked, by the way, is something feminists should never be. Don’t believe me? Try to find an attractive feminist, go on, try. Hear, by the way, is the definition of ecofeminism

…a philosophical and political movement that combines ecological concerns with feminist ones, regarding both as resulting from male domination of society.

Did I mention that feminists hate men?

What about “posthumanism”? Well, that my friends is even like Ecofeminism, just with more bat shit craziness!

Posthumanism or post-humanism (meaning “after humanism” or “beyond humanism”) is a term with at least seven definitions according to philosopher Francesca Ferrando:[1]

  1. Antihumanism: any theory that is critical of traditional humanism and traditional ideas about humanity and the human condition.[2]
  2. Cultural posthumanism: a branch of cultural theory critical of the foundational assumptions of humanism and its legacy[3] that examines and questions the historical notions of “human” and “human nature”, often challenging typical notions of human subjectivity and embodiment[4] and strives to move beyond archaic concepts of “human nature” to develop ones which constantly adapt to contemporary technoscientific knowledge.[5]
  3. Philosophical posthumanism: a philosophical direction which draws on cultural posthumanism, the philosophical strand examines the ethical implications of expanding the circle of moral concern and extending subjectivities beyond the human species.[4]
  4. Posthuman condition: the deconstruction of the human condition by critical theorists.[6]
  5. Transhumanism: an ideology and movement which seeks to develop and make available technologies that eliminate aging and greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities, in order to achieve a “posthuman future“.[7]
  6. AI takeover: A variant of transhumanism in which humans will not be enhanced, but rather eventually replaced by artificial intelligences. Some philosophers, including Nick Land, promote the view that humans should embrace and accept their eventual demise.[8] This is related to the view of “cosmism“, which supports the building of strong artificial intelligence even if it may entail the end of humanity, as in their view it “would be a cosmic tragedy if humanity freezes evolution at the puny human level”.[9][10][11]
  7. Voluntary Human Extinction, which seeks a “posthuman future” that in this case is a future without humans.

Bates College has just begun an active search for a new assistant professor for its environmental studies program. The job description suggests that applicants have research backgrounds in various fringe disciplines, including “decolonizing environmentalism” and “feminist environmentalism.”

Bates advertises its environmental studies department as one that “encompasses a broad range of issues” involving the “interaction of humans with both the natural world and built environments.” The description of the department includes a claim that “students must think beyond existing disciplinary boundaries” in order to fully understand environmental issues.

No, no, students do not have to think beyond existing disciplinary boundaries to be “woke” enough to grasp what the hell they are learning in “environmental studies”. No, they merely have to be babbling idiots who are stupid enough to fall for this leftist BS!

Go read it all, there is even more lunacy at Campus Reform! Luncy like “Indigenous and post-colonial/decolonial/decolonizing environmentalisms”. Yes, they are KRAZY like that!
