Transhumanism and Hermaphroditism

I just read this interesting article by Terra Bosart for transhumanity.net on how transhumanism might lead to hermaphroditism in some. Being a transhumanist myself you cannot help but wonder about the different ways our bodies can be manipulated.

There is estimated to be 0.033% to 0.05% on wikipedia's intersexuality page of hermaphrodite  births. 

recently i watched a documentary by national geographic on immortality in nature and the scientist interviewed in it talked about many asexual organisms like the Turritopsis nutricula jellyfish are though to be physically immortal and can only die from external circumstances.

If  one was trying to achieve immortality then they may go in that direction towards one sex.

If you have any thoughts on this please leave them below or on my twitter acct
