The most important Transhumanist issue to me is:

Transhumanism may be impossible, at least if you want to hang on to your money. Being mentally “different” is now recognized as automatically having “disease” by the psychiatric industry. The industry provides expert “forensic psychiatrists” under color of being evidence based and of being medicine, for a growing court system that can seize assets and even freedom, solely based on a declaration of arbitrarily bounded mental differences. The bible of psychiatry, DSM V, is about to come out, filled with antiscience and pseudoscience nonsense based on published papers declaring the nonempirical bases for categorization of mental states as "disorders" as both "legitimate and necessary", i.e., a declaration of antiscience. A great systematization of control and “normalization” of people's minds, with concomitant seizure of assets and freedom, is growing out of control, and no one is doing anything to stop it. Being transhumanly different will be "medically" impossible .
