As far as the feminist rebuttal, to me, this new tech just backs up all the arguments. Nothing new here. Yes, to some men, women are only sex objects, blah blah blah.
My real feelings are, go for it guys! Harmony (or Princess or Honey or Nova — whatever erotic dancer name you select!) will keep you home and away from the rest of us.
I don’t think the dolls are dangerous — men who hate women are. My armchair opinion is that these dolls might result in less aggression from angry straight men on-line and in real life. Maybe they will spend less time trolling the internet to bash a women asking for respect and equality, maybe one less sex worker will get her face beat in, maybe one less woman will be drugged, raped and left for dead.
There are as many options for how these dolls might sequester the behavior of the owners as options of the dolls themselves. (Freckles!) I hope these men feel loved, cared for and appreciated by these technological wonder women. I’ll bet you five bucks that any human woman would never be able to offer you these benefits you’ll pay 8K for, because we need more from life and love than you do.
Also, stop with the “threat” of men leaving women for dolls. Please make it a “promise”. It’s ZERO threat to us. Zero. You see, woman don’t need men — and men like you in particular. (That’s probably part of what make you so darn mad!)
Just bend Crystal (with a french manicure!) over your couch, bang your silicone darling, talk about your day and make yourself a sandwich.
p.s. When you die, will you bequeath your doll to friends or family, or will you buy her a plot as well? Just wondering.
p.p.s. Maybe the AI will get so advanced, she can call an ambulance and administer CPR when you’re stroked out on the floor or your insulin levels bottom out. Something to think about RealDoll.com!
