Feminists are stealing our sexbots, Men’s Rights Redditors warn

They're coming for your hypothetical future sexbots!
They’re coming for your hypothetical future sexbots!

Reddit MRAs are all in a tizzy about the evil feminist plot to deprive them of sexbots that don’t yet exist.

Playing the part of “the feminists” in this scenario: two European robot ethicists — that is, two human beings who study the ethical issues raised by robotics — who have launched what they call a Campaign Against Sex Robots. Their concern? That sex robots will “contribute to inequalities in society” and “further objectif[y] women and children.”

As a position paper on the Campaign’s website argues,

extending relations of prostitution into machines is neither ethical, nor is it safe. If anything the development of sex robots will further reinforce relations of power that do not recognise both parties as human subjects.

It’s not clear that there is anything to the campaign beyond this position paper, a bare-bones website, a crappy logo, and its two organizers, but the fellas on the Men’s Rights subreddit are treating this like some kind of sexbot Pearl Harbor.

In a post to the subreddit that’s garnered close to 1300 upvotes, one Redditor sounds the alarm: Feminists already trying to ban sex robots as “demeaning to women”, to control male sexuality.

Naturally the discussion was full of the thoughtful analysis and good sense that we have come to expect from the Men’s Rights Movement.

Chef_Lebowski 6 points 1 day ago This just proves that these cunts only want attention on them, but when you do give them attention, you're some misogynist pig. Either way, you can't win with these mentally bipolar cunts. And the easy answer would be to just punch them hard in the face, but that would set men back quite a bit. You can't win with these. And notice how this shit is only happening in the Western part of the world? In Japan, they have sex dolls and robots and even anime figures to fuck. No one bats an eye because it's not a problem. Prostitution and weed are legal in Netherlands, or Amsterdam to be more specific and no one has a problem because everyone there is chill as fuck. If only we had legalized weed everywhere and prostitution everywhere, maybe these cunts would chill out a little more. I am so fucking sick and tired of women dictating how I should act and feel and then when I argue against it I'm labelled these stupid terms and even made-up ones too. For fuck sakes, even one of my teachers in college who I looked up to a lot is a feminist and it's a he too. How sad. I need to move away from North America. I can't stand this fucking culture of being easily offended and men having little to no rights.

Yes, that’s right. The guy who reacted to a news article about a two-person campaign to ban hypothetical future sex robots by pounding out a slur-ridden polemic talking about how much he’d like to punch “these mentally bipolar cunts … hard in the face” is complaining that other people are too easily offended.

Tilting_Gambit, meanwhile, explained the pussyconomics behind it all.

richardnorth 135 points 1 day ago Many in the manosphere predicted this would happen many years ago. This article is like clockwork. It's completely unsurprising that they're gonna start freaking out over men being able to get sexual satisfaction while bypassing all the bs, drama and baggage that comes with real women. permalinkembedunsavereportgive goldreply [–]Tilting_Gambit 100 points 1 day ago It's why women slut shame and cock-block. They like to keep the value of sex high so that men pour more resources/effort/time into pursuing it. If women ever just allow their sexual inhibitions to disappear then men are no longer the pursuers in relationships and women don't get to select their partners with the same frequency. Women don't know they don't want other girls to put out, but they benefit greatly when the value of sex is high. Exactly the same with hypothetical sex AIs. If men are getting sexually satisfied by robots then they're not going to pursue women with the same intensity. In economics terms, the demand for women would drop and therefore the price men are willing to

And since most women don’t have anything to offer men beyond sex — at least in the eyes of quite a few Men’s Rights Redditors — a plunge in the price of sex will render many of the utterly worthless.

turntheradioup 68 points 1 day ago This is a serious danger to people who have

There was much agreement on this point.

jubbergun 95 points 1 day ago Of course feminists want to bury these before they're even developed. It would destroy women's social capital and make it so that women would honestly be judged on the basis of their personality and abilities. The whole point of modern feminism is to avoid responsibility and accountability and convince men to do things for women without expecting anything in return.

Much much agreement:

heDongerNeedsFood 24 points 1 day ago When it comes to sex, these robots are competiton for real women, plain and simple. permalinkembedsavereportgive goldreply [–]Demonspawn 38 points 1 day ago They are competition for women who offer nothing more than sex. The sad state of western women is that the vast majority of them offer little more than sex. They have bought into feminism and shed their feminine qualities as they ape being men such that the only thing they have to offer men (who desire feminine qualities in partners) is sex. permalinkembedsaveparentreportgive goldreply [–]5th_Law_of_Robotics 9 points 1 day ago Which the fact that so many women vociferously oppose porn, prostitution, male masturbatory aids, etc suggest that those women think all they have to offer is sex.

A couple of Redditors broke down the math:

yayimadeit 63 points 1 day ago My friends and I were just discussing this the other day. It's my opinion that if they can get a decently priced robot that can give sexual pleasure that is 60% of what a real woman can give then it will end society as we know it. Most men would settle for 'ok' sex in exchange for having it when they want it, as often as they want, and with none of the financial risk that a marriage carries. For untold generations women used sexuality to ensure they were taken care of. That's about to end, and it's going to be a very, very ugly transition. Oh, and my friends think that 60% is too high. They would settle for less if they got the positives outlined above. Ugh, it all makes me really sad too because this is going to happen and no feminist scholars are going to stop it. Men will walk through fire to get laid and someone somewhere will offer this no matter how outlawed it would be. permalinkembedsavereportgive goldreply [–]intensely_human 23 points 1 day ago If the robot can change in appearance, I think it can get away with 30% of quality. Sex with the same woman year after year approaches 10% quality level or lower, IMO. The difference in level of arousal between having sex with your wife and having sex with a woman you've just met is incredible.

ExpendableOne suggested that we wouldn’t even need to destroy women with sexbots if non-robot women were just nicer to nice guys like (presumably) him.

ExpendableOne 6 points 1 day ago It's both frustrating and sad at the same time. Most men would be happy to just find a decent looking girl who wants to have sex with them, values/respects them, and who aren't abusive, crazy or entitled. I feel like the bar for women is very low compared to what women expect men to be for them(their lists are considerably longer). How is that so hard to accomplish? Like, all they would have to do is be half-way decent people, treat men equitably and take some initiatives, and they would make the sex robot industries completely obsolete. What's worse, is that they will simultanously complain about the lack of fuckable men(i.e. men over 6'0

Toysjoe wonders what the feminists will try to ban next.

toysjoe 15 points 1 day ago* Just another act that's doomed to fail in the feminist campaign of all-the-rights, none-of-the-responsibilities. Instead of eating less, wearing deodorant, and getting on the treadmill, they try to change what men find attractive and ban sex alternatives like porn and these potential robots. What does that say about the state of women when men ignore their strong, natural urge to fuck women but would rather quit chasing them, watch porn, and fuck robots? Are you going to ban my hands next so I can't jerk off? Are you going to amputate every single newborn boy's hands?

ATTENTION FEMINISTS! CODE RED!

THEY KNOW!

(Non-feminists, just ignore that last bit. Nothing to see here, nothing at all.)

HoundDog, meanwhile, has concluded that sexbots are pretty much unbannable, and is quite looking forward to the newly chastened women he thinks the sexbot revolution will create.

HoundDogs 8 points 1 day ago* It's because a good bit of feminism is there to promote a sexual/reproductive strategy that's advantageous to females....specifically the less attractive females that tend to gravitate toward feminism. Sex robots and dolls reduce the demand on women because men, in many cases, don't like dealing with all the challenges and dangers that come with women and they become less attractive than the doll. This hurts the female sexual strategy. ...and given that feminism seems to put stock in the idea that the state should have ultimate power over our lives, their very first reaction is to

Somehow I don’t think that the disappearance of these guys from the dating marketplace is going to make many non-robot women all that sad.

See the rest of the thread for much more of the same, including gratuitous references to Anita Sarkeesian, attacks on non-STEM academic fields, and one dude who seems to have a sexual fetish for C-3PO.

It’s always so damn bizarre to me that they talk about women like they’re objects, with some sort of supply and demand on them. Like “Oh no, a new product (sex robots) is going to come out in the market, and women will lose their sexual capital!”

It always feels like I’m reading something from the Twilight Zone when I read this stuff.

I can’t even relate to where their thinking comes from at all.

You know, prostitution used to be one of those issues I was a complete glibertarian about. Then I came to this site, and started reading what the manosphere writes about sex work, and that has done more to push me to a more nuanced position than even feminist writings, because holy fuck these guys are sickening.

I like how Chef Lebowski seems to think sex robots are actually already a thing in Japan, and that somehow they just haven’t been allowed to come to Western countries or something.

So much irony.

A woman can be a genius, have many wonderful qualities and accomplishments, but all these guys see is whether she is fuckable or not. If she’s not fuckable, she’s invislble.

If she is fuckable, and also has many other wonderful qualities, these guys would hook up with her (if they could) just to bang her, and (if they could), they’d discourage her other qualities (like talents, a great career) if they believed it would take away her attention or time from them.

I just love it when these guys talk about how most women bring nothing else to the table, but at the same time complain if she’s too engrossed in getting an education or career. They want a fucktoy who is a genius, but who is willing to give up all her other accomplishments to be *their* fucktoy.

Let them have their sexbots!

These guys want a fuck-maid they can dominate. Would a non-sentient robot actually provide the level of satisfaction they’re looking for, or would they become dissatisfied by the response and move back to people?

And if they are successful at providing people with that level of satisfaction, will the companies making them try to promote and normalise that need? (Yes of course they would)

So barring technology, it’s really the same questions we ask of porn and sex work now: does abusive pornography serve as an outlet for that desire, normalize that behaviour in society at large, or only serve to drive violent predators to participate in the real thing?

I don’t think they’re wrong at all. Just the other night, a feminist snuck into my bedroom and stole my sexbot from below my bed. The next day, just it’s hand was returned with a note that said “I’m keeping the rest, misogynerd.” A few days after that, I got papers for divorce from my sexbot. Truly a heartless, totally not sci-fi world we live in.

One, they’re really not, and two, I’d love to see him move to Japan and become a shut-in that all the lovely, “submissive”, “western-man-loving” Japanese girls wouldn’t touch with a ten-foot pole.

Wasn’t there a whinge-piece on TRP about Japanese women who were choosing their careers over children, or was that a troll we had scamper in here screeching about the “death of the modern family”?

I’m pretty sure it was the latter.

Not to mention we had a discussion a few threads back about how TRPers were discussing how they consume media that is “popular” solely so they can make small talk to get laid.

They whinge when they think women are “boring”, but refuse to do anything that would give them a glimmer of a personality.

I haven’t had sex in ten plus years and I’m not losing my shit over it. and it’s not like I have a super low sex drive. it might not be super high, and in the last year, getting back on anti depressants has reduced it a bit more, but still… even like twelve years ago, when I was like 21, and single, and definitely had a higher sex drive that wasn’t being chemically affected, I didn’t really understand the other guys I knew, for whom sex seemed to be the most important thing in life.

I’m cross posting this from Slashdot.
“I think their arguments are flawed, and puritanical. However I think in some case we should ban sex-robots. I think if they’re just a machine, without any self-awareness then I don’t have a problem with them. If however a sexbots are sentient, even to a limited degree then making them is nothing more than sexual slavery. Much as Charles Stross and Greg Egan have pointed out. The trick will be how do we determine if a robot is sentience, and at what level do we say no more.

I also think that in the near future anyone with sexbot will be considered a bit of a fuck up, unable to manage even basic relationships with the opposite sex”

Nevertheless the forum was filled with a sea of angry white dudes angry that an ugly woman dared to challenge their ideas. One idiot even posted a youtube video of one of the researchers and warbbled something along the lines of who’d want to fuck her. Pretty sad when I think about it.

Alright, I have something to confess guys.

The truth is, I’m a sexbot from the future who traveled to the past from the year 2029. I was sent by the future female resistance leader, Jean (French pronunciation) Conner, to alter this timeline. I was captured and reprogrammed to serve this purpose.

In the future I come from, sexbots have taken over the role of females. It turns out that all men are actually MRAs (they were right all along, who knew?) and with the successful creation of sexbot technology all women have become 5th class citizens (4th class are lawn clippings). It all happened on a day called ‘Judging Day’, when YouTube (now the world’s largest media conglomerate) and its massive anti-feminist movement posted intricately detailed pornographic video of sexbots at work, directed by YouTube Maestros Jordan and Aurini (yes, the 2 people you are thinking of) which swung the public opinion of men. The men then gave the sexbots the right to terminate the women as now that they were worthless, enhancing them with combat capabilities – which also in turn made all the sexbots sexier.

I have been sent back from the past to protect the future leader of the resistance who goes by the mysterious moniker ‘Kate’. If anyone has any information to her whereabouts please let me know so that I can avert this terrible disaster.

For some reason I am also dressed entirely in leather and can only speak in monotone, but this does not extend to comments on the internet.

Please stop SexNet from ever taking shape. The future is not sex.

Also, and this relates to the articles I translate from the German on my blog: Paid-for sex is already rapidly diminishing in “market value” in countries that have legalized it, because pimp mafias are trafficking in impoverished women from Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa to meet the elevated demand created by legalization and normalization of prostitution. Local women are not entering the trade voluntarily, because the working conditions are incredibly repulsive. German megabrothels offer “flat-rate” sex, literally “all you can fuck” for well under 100 euros (one of them actually advertises using that very slogan!) No condoms, anything goes. The conditions in there are shitty, and the pimps are lobbying hard to make sure the cops and the health department can’t get in there to check anything, because then the whole business would unravel, and they’d have to stop trafficking impoverished girls. And of course, the johns are eating it right up. It’s a race to the bottom, and the women suffer.

So, to the whiny Menz Rightz Redditors who can’t wait for sexbots and who are piss-mad about anything that puts a crimp in the oh-so-important quest to satisfy your boners, congrats: YOU are what’s driving the value of sex down, on the very literal sexual market. And feminists are angry at you because it’s YOU who are objectifying us, and reducing us to one thing only. And reducing THAT to a paid transaction, too. You think we’re using sex to oppress you? Nuh-uh. It’s the other way around, completely.

Every time I see a sexbot story from the manosphere I always think the same thing. Because they can’t emotionally or psychologically (and probably physically) abuse a sexbot, these guys will lose all interest if they ever did become available. They could yell at it, insult it, punch it in the face — nothing, no reaction, every time. Then when they realize they paid 200x (or whatever) the cost of a Fleshlight for something that gives them the same satisfaction, there will be a lot of used sexbots on craigslist. Yuck.

Expendable one said that there are men that feminists don’t want to fuck, and we don’t want anyone else fucking them either? ???

Can someone tell me how much time I am supposed to be spending every day on wishing some men would not get laid? Seems that I am feministing all wrong.

Also, maybe if you go through life being a nice, decent, respectful human being, perhaps you will meet someone that may want to have sex with you. Instead of trying to figure out how to get it, like it’s something that is owed to you, and then getting mad when 24 year old, blond,skinny virgins won’t give you the time of day when you are “nice” to them for 10 minutes. How dare them not have sex with you, after putting in all that effort!

Personally, I hope they all get robots and live happily ever after. No problem for me, and i am confident that most people probably feel that way. But I don’t think it will shut them up.

These guys whining about women wanting to “control [men’s] sexuality/bodies” are the ones who appoint themselves as the rulers of what women should do with their own sexuality and bodies. In fact, a woman choosing what to do with her own body alone already IS an attack on men’s sexuality.

I think that most normal, healthy men don’t think about getting laid all the time.

My husband didn’t date a lot before we married, he is painfully shy, but he seems to think that his looks had something to do with it. He isn’t a one night stand guy, so he had just a few sexual partners.

He likes women, but, he also likes “connecting” with the woman he is with. He never saw the point in fucking just for the sake of doing it, and he never felt like women owed him anything. He was content to date women that were interested in him, and wait through his dry spells. But he spent time doing things he enjoyed, like reading, swimming, hanging with guy friends, whatever, while he waited to find someone interesting that liked him back.

So,I think you sound just fine, like a normal dude that isn’t a complete shit weasel. It isn’t you.

If these women, or feminists, spent half the time/energy they seem willing to spend on trying to ban sex robots, or anything men could find any joy in, and spent it on being nicer people (or just less entitled and narcissistic divas), men probably wouldn’t give a shit about sex robots.

This is just so Reddit. Oh r/Misters, you don’t realize the massive amount of entitlement and narcissism required to complain about make believe feminists denying you imaginary sex with nonexistent robots.

No, it won’t, and therein lies the problem. They’ll still be kvetching their fool heads off because they’ll have to go out of doors and interact with horrible, horrible real women at some point, and it will inconveniently remind them that what’s behind their closet doors is not a person, and that no person is actually like that, either. Their whole little self-made world will crumble before their eyes every time they have to interact with another person. And not just women, either; other men, who have no problem dealing on the level with women as they are, will look upon these guys and judge them, laugh at them, and contemptuously pity them just as much as women do.

And more to the point: Unless the robot is sentient to a degree approaching that of a real person (Uncanny Valley, anyone?), they won’t be able to torture it with their conflicting and contradictory demands. They are, in their hearts, sadists who want women to be miserable. A robot that only looks like a woman won’t do. At some point, they will want to torment a real woman, and it won’t be pretty.

These guys want to hold the imaginary threat of sexbots over us in an effort to bring us to heel. It will never work.

These guys would never be satisfied with robots for long. They want to hurt REAL women, and their inability to physically and mentally hurt a robot would grow dissatisfying.

Ultimately, all it would achieve is a growing lust for violence against women, and that lust not being satiated. Hello serial rapist and/or killer!

*sigh* I wish David included the copy/paste-able text rather than (or in addition to) the images, because I want to blockquote so much! I’ll just settle for the ones below.

From the post:

Which the fact that so many women vociferiously oppose porn, prostitution, male masturbatory aids, etc, suggest those women think all they have to offer is sex

who opposes “male masturbatory aids”? I’m guessing they mean flesh lights. But that is not the same as porn or prostitution. They just don’t look at what is actually being opposed and why. Besides… The whole hypothetical discussion is how the use of sexbots will result in the treatment of real life actual women. If the possibility was mostly likely just them ignoring women and not wanting them, I’m sure most people would be throwing sexbots through these guys’ windows. But no, it’s more about when these guys will start expecting women to act like their sexbots… OR ELSE.

Also from the post:

If women ever just allow their sexual inhibitions to disappear then men are no longer the pursuers in relationships and women don’t get to select their partners with the same frequency.

*sigh* So much lack of understanding about reality.
