Feminist Witch/University Professor Advocates Human Extinction

She seems nice:

On January 23, 2020, Bloomsbury Academic published a call to action for all those who care about “climate change.” The Ahuman Manifesto: Activism for the End of the Anthropocene by Patricia MacCormack, a professor of continental philosophy at Angelia Ruskin University, cuts to the chase and advocates for the ultimate solution to global warming: The end of the human race. For MacCormack, “Extinction Rebellion” has a whole different meaning.
MacCormack admits to being an “occultist magician.” She has actually given lectures — often in a get-up that is either supposed to be emulating a witch and bearing an eerie resemblance to the costumes we see frequently at Drag Queen Storytime — on the “invocation” or “convocation” of demons, which she says is an important feminist or queer practice. Invoking demons, she says, is not entirely risk-free, because “madness is as likely as ecstasy.” She says all of this entirely unironically.

MacCormack is a native of Australia whose academic specialties include:

  • Continental philosophy, especially Deleuze, Guattari, Foucault, Blanchot, Irigaray, Serres and Lyotard
  • Sexuality and queer theory
  • Feminism
  • Ethics
  • Post-human theory
  • Animal studies
  • European horror film, especially German Expressionism and Italian horror of the 1960s-1980s

Also: “In 2013 she was a visiting Leverhulme Fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara,” because of course taxpayer-funded universities in America have an obligation to offer fellowships to crazy feminists from around the world. And, yes, she practices the occult. She is “co-founder of the occult-inspired club night Occulture in London.”

Let’s learn more about Professor MacCormack’s exciting ideas:

An Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) author believes she has solved the problem of over-population – by allowing humanity to become extinct through ending procreation.
Dr Patricia MacCormack, professor of continental philosophy at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), has even invented a new term for a post-human world: the “ahuman” will avoid ecological collapse by “going beyond binaries of human and not human”, according to ‘The Ahuman Manifesto’ which is launched in Cambridge this week.
“Far from advocating mass death, genocide or eugenics, my manifesto is antinatalist,” says Dr MacCormack. “It boycotts human reproduction due to the damage humans have perpetrated on the Earth and its other inhabitants.
“The manifesto simply asks that humans no longer reproduce – no life is lost, no being is mourned. If we no longer reproduce, we can care for all inhabitants already here, human and non-human, as well as care for the Earth itself by mitigating the damage already caused. It’s an activism of care.”

Human existence is bad. That’s what parents are paying universities to teach their children: “Hurry up and die, because global warming.”
