Gender Hacking- taking testogel and other "sex change drugs" as a performance of the indeterminacy of sex (sex as a ridiculous construction that produces violence). This is therefore is a performance of radical gender politics (breaking the male/female sex binary) to allow for a litany of alternative genders. 

 

Pharmaporn- biopower now operates through repression of our sexuality via maintaining the theory of heteronormative reproduction which is premised on the sex binary (male/female). The medical-industrial complex regulates bodies at birth to fit into the sex binary (hence the "pharma" portion). The "solvency" mechanism is gender hacking, which in essence ruptures the traditional conceptions of sex and gender and is therefore able to destroy the system of pharmacopornography, because it is, again, contingent upon the idea of heteronormativity and the traditional sexes.
