Although the idea of restraining a girl in order to remove parts of her labia and clitoris and infibulate her vagina may seem horrifying to westerners, the question of how to end practices such as FGM is far from clear because of the socially constructed nature of sexual and gender norms in the societies in which it is practised.
In doing so, he draws on a long line of performance artists who have explored the idea of the electrified body reaching back at least to when Stephen Gray suspended a boy and induced a negative charge on his body to allow him to attract small pieces of brass leaf Elsenaar and Scha It seems that our technological abilities have outrun our ability to consider these technologies and practices from an ethical standpoint.
This article explores the nature of the body through the lens of posthumanism, posthuman examining ways that individuals attempt to reshape their bodies through cosmetic Stelarc surgery and other forms of body modification.
There are, of course, detractors from this narrative of liberation through technology. Yet this is cyclical; cosmetic surgery not only reflects but creates our conceptions of what it means to be beautiful. Thus, this may simply be a case in which technology has not caught up with imagination.
A Journal of Women Studies, Even if one were to grant that we are moving towards a posthuman future, the question remains of what that future would look like and what technological means one would employ to reach it.
