Rosella Tolfree Installment Stories
A series set in the politically dystopian future of the U.S.A.

Res-Pangenderism theory was developed by Dr. April French-Wolfe and sees humanity as the only true and genetically universal species, for as a species we control our own genetic destiny. It’s based on quantum genetics and human manipulated genetics at the quantum scale. Or as Dr. French-Wolfe said, “We humans are indivisible at the quantum scale.”
Unlike scientists of the 21st Century who saw human sex as a spectrum, she saw the binary sex plaguing humanity as part of an evolutionary step and that it was possible that at some point this reproduction may be obsolete. She reasoned that humanity through quantum genetic manipulation may reach a point where the extension of age makes having offspring unnecessary because of highly efficient self-repairing. Basically no wound, save having your head cut off, couldn’t be healed. Even then maybe we would just grow a new head.
All the variations earlier scientists saw causing them to believe in the spectrum approach were to her either failed natural evolutionary processes or just random errors in the genetic coding. Or as she called it, “noise”. With Res-Pangenderism, sexual differentiation and sexual determination were all controlled at the quantum level. Neither process was a separate reality, but one harmonious and continuous process of human growth at the smallest scale.
The Word Gender
Dr. April French-Wolfe was less concerned about 21st Century use of the term “gender” despite using it in her theory’s name. By this point in time many scientists were looking back to original meanings of words when naming theories and things. Here, the etymology of gender is from the 1300s to mean class or kind of person. Versus the 1960s usage for social attributes assigned to sexes. The whole phrase of “Res-Pangenderism” translates as “True Universal Speciesism”.
Dr. French-Wolfe held that their maybe at the quantum level sex assigned behaviors, but how those attributes are reinforced by society depends on an array of other factors making absolute determinant nearly impossible. She always saw it as Schrodinger's cat problem.
In time the scientists that believed in Dr. French-Wolfe’s theory built a space colony in a Lagrangian orbit point behind Europa. The colony specialized in the rehabilitation of criminals for the inner system.
Dr. Martin Grofhurst and “The Rise of Inferior Genetics”
Dr. Martin Grofhurst was a colleague of hers that agreed with some of her theories, but preferred natural selection processes over human intervention. He saw white Europeans as the pinnacle of genetic evolution by the hand of God-selection.
Every age appears to have hate groups that cluster around some book proposing ideas or theories about how the world should work. The future is no different. Res-Pangenderism would cause an offshoot theory by Dr. Martin Grofhurst’s book entitled, “The Rise of Inferior Genetics”.
Both Res-Pangenderism and Dr. Grofhurst’s Dawrinistic genetic theories occurred during a time when a small but politically vocal group of geneticists were proposing “transracial identity theory” to head off potential immigration issues associated with global warming. Politically this transracial theory was a hard sell, and later wouldn’t stop nations from banning immigrants as the waters rose.
