Is Cryonics a “Man Thing”?

Posted by Curt on Monday, 12 July 2010

I was originally going to write this post about something else, but I saw this article written by Amanda Marcotte, who founded and writes at Pandagon, and it was one of the most ridiculous things I’ve read in awhile.  I had to respond.

Through the way she characterizes cryonics, I have to wonder if Amanda’s ever passed middle school science:

“According to Howley, male cryonics enthusiasts outnumber female ones 3 to 1. I suppose this shouldn’t be surprising. Men have the option, especially in our society, to be way more out of touch with their biological realities than women do, and this can make it that much easier to create elaborate fantasies about how the constraints of biology, including decay and death, don’t apply to you. … You’d think [a cryonics advocate would] learn a little more through osmosis about how death and decay are a process and have nothing to do with the cryonic image of death as being not so different than simply putting your computer on ‘hibernate.’” Read the rest of this entry »
