'''Transhumanist separatism''' is a fringe idea within the [[comparison of futurist related ideologies|transhumanist political spectrum]], advocating that transhumanists should form separate societies from mainstream society.
It can be considered a manifestation of the [[neo-reactionary movement]], rejecting democracy and inclusivity.
When in 2010, [[Rachael Rachel Haywire]] and Jason Schoenecker wrote about "A Transhuman Separatist Manifesto",<ref>[https://web.archive.org/web/20110202103153/http://hplusmagazine.com/2010/12/09/transhuman-separatist-manifestotop-5-reasons-transhumanist-militia/ A Transhuman Separatist Manifesto/Top 5 Reasons for a Transhumanist Militia ]</ref> it provoked reactions of both interest in the future of relationships between enhanced and non-enhanced individuals,<ref>[http://hplusmagazine.com/2010/12/30/crown-ground-against-transhuman-militance/ Crown on the Ground: Against Transhuman Militance]</ref> as well being described as 'a threat to [[H+]]' from various positions within [[Humanity+]] who rejected such an idea.<ref>[http://hplusmagazine.com/2011/03/08/is-transhuman-militance-a-threat-to-h/ Is Transhuman Militance a Threat to H+?]</ref>
In later years, the concept of a separatist 'start up society' has been compared to more civilised ISIS, with scepticism directed towards ideas of libertarian sovereign compounds.<ref>[http://ieet.org/index.php/IEET/more/evans20160210 Against Transhuman Separatism: Breakaway Cultures Become Broken Cultures]</ref>
== In fiction ==
In the ''[[X-Men]] '' franchise, conflicts between the Magneto's separatist Brotherhood of Mutants and Professor X's more inclusive approach set the backdrop of a number of conflicts in their fictional universe. [[Inhumans]] in the [[Agents of Shield]] franchise often express separatist tendencies.
[[Zoltan Istvan]]'s ''[[The Transhumanist Wager]]'' features an independent transhumanist state.
 
''[[BioShock]]'' features a separatist underground state which allows radical genetic augmentations.
