Laura Ingraham podcast guest claims trans people will destroy gender norms to create a 'new species' which will be 'part machine'

A guest on conservative commentator Laura Ingraham’s podcast has made the extraordinary claim that transgender people are trying to use social engineering to create a new species.

Even more bizarrely, Ingraham then began to speculate whether this species would be “part human, part animal". Yup, totally normal.

Fox News host Ingraham, who recently compared Planned Parenthood to Hitler, was speaking to Dr Paul Nathanson, a gender relations professor. The episode was titled, "Transhumanism and the assault on traditional gender and masculinity" - catchy.

Ingraham and Nathanson discussed an alleged “attack on masculinity”, whatever that means.

She said:

The hoax that somehow sexes are all the same or capable of being bed into one continuum, that masculinity itself is toxic, terrible and poisonous, all of those things, and in fact has to be discouraged in many ways.

Ingraham then criticised rumours that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were planning to raise their child “gender neutral” and also singer Sam Smith recently coming out as non-binary.

Discussing the trans community, Ingraham said:

Their goal ultimately is the destruction or elimination of the traditional family, though, is it not? That's what we really want to get at here. That's really what's going on.

If masculinity is bad and men are inherently going to be patriarchal unless somehow we can train them, and beat this out of them—to be protectors and to be courageous, all these things that we impugn upon men—well if you get rid of all that, then the traditional family itself collapses and that's one last bastion of Western Biblically-centered morality that enveloping our, and has helped us prosper, frankly, for millennia and advance in millennia.

Nathanson agreed, adding:

I think that the trans people have taken it one step further because by abandoning gender altogether, not simply re-writing it, they're basically trying to use social engineering to create a new species. Which is what, in fact, the transhumanists have been doing for the past half century. Using medical and other technologies to develop a new species.

So the goal is really quite radical.

We're not talking about people who want to simply do a bit of reform here and there, add a new category. They want, they must, in fact, destroy whatever is in order to replace it with what they think should be. We're talking about revolution, not reform.

Ingraham asks:

And the new species will be looking like what? Will be part human part animal? I mean, will be human mostly…

Nathanson said:

I think human and part machine.

Ingraham replies:

Part machine, hmm.

It's good to see that everything is completely normal and fine. Though, to be honest, given how badly humans have been behaving recently a new robo-species doesn't sound too bad.
