You may remember the MGTOW I wrote about who wanted to use human wombs as a sort of deluxe version of a 3-D printer — though only after removing the wombs from possibly unwilling donors.
This may be the most extreme example, but quite a few MGTOWs (and some alt-rightists) are obsessed with the idea of the artificial womb, which they believe could make cis women obsolete.
Now some Gender Critical types are getting just as worked up about artificial wombs but for an opposite reason: they want to shut down all research on uteri. “In this nightmarish dystopia we need to keep an eye on our wombs,” a Gender Critical Redditor called carnalhag wrote in a recent post on the FightFemaleErasure subreddit.
She posted a meme to make her point clearer:
“Don’t think this is outside the realm of possibility, wrote a commenter called sickendImagination, “this could definitely happen. The question to ask is, ‘why wouldn’t they?'”
These men have no shame, trying [to] make the pipe dream of birthing a child from a dead woman’s uterus come true.
When one decidedly non-Gender Critical Redditor asked the OP and her supporters why they were against organ donation, the question inspired a small flood of comments from a Gender Crit called Nuclear-Nuggets.
[T]his is sick shit. Only females need uteruses. It’s why no male has one. It’s not a heart or a kidney. Donating this organ will not improve any male’s health
The critic pressed further, asking
Would [artificial wombs] not make women’s lives so much easier? Would that not make childrearing so much easier for same-sex couples?
Nuclear_Nuggets went ballistic:
There’s no need to be venturing down of this perverted, disgusting & abominable road of trying to defy our biology to this extent so trans-freaks can cross off one more thing on the list of things that don’t make them men/women like cisgender people, because that’s all this is really about.
It’s good that none of these people — the MGTOWs, the alt-rightists or the Gender Crits — have any say in this research.
