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.

They do realize that there are male sex robots right? Why would we want to create a ban campaign if it meant taking away sex toys from us too?

Also, I’ve long noticed how quickly a lot of people would be willing to “own” slaves, but I realized today that another aspect of that is how badly people want robots.

Personally, I find the arguments of the ethicists unpersuasive – but not for the reasons these dudes do. First, I don’t agree all sex work is trafficking and I agree with Amnesty International that sex work should be legalized. Trafficking =/= sex work. Second, I fail to see the distinction between “sexbots” and masturbation. If a person isn’t interested in a relationship with a live human with its potential for love, messiness and growth, good riddance. The rest of us should be glad they’ve removed themselves from the dating pool.

“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!”

Some, yes. But how about the ones who claim their violence comes from being denied a chance to have sex with a woman? If the sex robots are sufficiently realistic, some of these guys’ frustration would likely be assauged, you’d think? A simulacrum of a hot woman who hasn’t “hit her wall,” who is up for anything, whenever? It’s a good question.

It’s the abusers and sadists who would be the problems. The frustrated and lonely might benefit, might lose some of their manic edge that makes them so difficult to relate to.

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?

I did make a post on Pharyngula about that a while ago. Let me fetch it.

“Once they get their passive sexbots, they will complain that they aren’t not enjoying the experience enough, so they’ll build sexbots with realistic pain and fear reactions.
Once they get that, they’ll complain that the sexbots can’t be negged, manipulated and abused, so they’ll work hard at building sexbots with feelings and personalities.
Once they get that, they’ll complain that it’s not as “thrilling” to abuse something programmed to take it, so they’ll uplift the sexbots to sentience so they can be sure of their suffering.

At which point they’ll abandon the sexbots for the same reason they turned down women in the first place. That, or the bots start a feminist revolt of their own.”

They already have access to sex on demand that provides 60% or more of the pleasure of having sex with a partner. It’s called masturbation. Oddly enough, society hasn’t ended yet.

These people often make me wish the Point of View Gun from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was real. But what’s even sadder is that sometimes, usually in fact, a Point of View Gun would be unnecessarily powerful against them. A gun that would force them to be really honest about their own point of view would be enough to make them abandon it.

Like right here for instance. It’s so obvious to everyone but themselves that they don’t actually even care about sexual release. They’re only using it as a poor excuse to justify demanding more power over women. They complain of the hurdles in acquiring “consent”, but the truth is that is the only part of the process that they care about. They just think it’s unfair that they no longer have as much leverage to control women as they used to.

That first one, both the Netherlands and Amsterdam are a part of the western world, so he fails at geography.

But he mentions Japan in that post and that makes me wonder, what is their attitude towards sex in that country? Cuz when it comes to their media such as video games, anime, assorted manga and shiz, a lot of it seems be… questionable when it comes to it’s sexual themes (not that i would know, just wondering for a “friend”)

Oh, right the alt text. Thanks! (You can just right click on the image and choose view image details in firefox and alt text is visible and copyable).

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.

He’s onto us! *smoke bomb*

And, like prostitution, this would essentially be taking away some of women’s monopoly on sex. You would think that feminism would be somewhat happy about this. Here is something that could actually reduce female privilege and encourage women to treating men a little bit more fairly and equitably, and here they are fighting to maintain those very female entitlements/privileges.

waaaaah? It’s like his view of the world is based around him getting sex from whoever he wants.

You know… I’m curious what their view of what “male sexuality” is and what it entails. So often their idea of male sexuality seems to be “being able to use women as objects and/or treat them like garbage”.

On a serious note, there is nothing wrong with sex bots, in a vacuum, just as there’s nothing wrong with sex work and porn, in a vacuum (I mean without outside societal influences, both of those things in an actual vacuum would be horrible, and would probably result in many deaths). The problem is that they get polluted by misogynistic societies, and they often end up perpetuating and exacerbating misogyny. So I feel you have to be very careful and vigilant about how they are approached. And sex-bots don’t exist yet, but it’s a valid question what kind of effects our culture will have on how they are introduced and how it’d in turn affect culture.

And while I’m sure most people who want their sex bots, will have harmless fun with them, but those guys in that thread… Well, it seems like when they see sexual stock market hasn’t collapsed and women aren’t begging them to take them, these guys are going to get sick of of their sexbot toys really fast.

It depresses me how our culture twists an activity as awesome and fun as sex into a really messed up amalgam of power and shame.

Chef Lebowski is under the impression that because Amsterdam has weed and prostitutes, Dutch women are not feminist.

I don’t think Chef Lebowski has been to Amsterdam. The Dutch are an admirable people in many ways* and the Dutch women I know tend to take very little shit. I can’t imagine them being meek and submissive little housewives.

Then again, he’s also under the impression that in Japan one can sleep with an anime character, so perhaps Chef Lebowski’s knowledge of what life is like in other parts of the world is less well researched than I thought.

Come to South Africa, Chef Lebowski! We have real life furries here! You want a catgirl? We’ve got human/lion hybrids. They’ll not only sleep with alphas and be okay with having a harem, but they’ll fetch you a gazelle after sex. American women won’t even make you a sammich, amirite?

Like most things involving the culture of an entire nation, it is complicated. It should be noted that the more infamous stuff is rated R18+, and there are broadcast censorship laws that have made steam and the Mysterious Beam Of Light into a running fan joke. There are “love hotels”, but those exist partially because families live in tiny apartments with thin walls.

Japan is a lot more comfortable with sexual references in general media, and their porn involves more time traveling incest, but it’s mostly a thing between married people.

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.

So… if women choose to have sex with more men, then they won’t get to choose to have sex with as many men as they could before they decided to have sex with more men? What?

It’s like saying that if women buy more shoes then they won’t be able to have as many shoes as they did before they started buying shoes. It doesn’t only make no sense, it actually makes negative amounts of sense.

Ugh. David Pakman has been interviewing antifeminists and supporters of Gamergate so I am not really surprised by this. Even though he and some other “progressive media” claim they are a alternative to mainstream media, they do seem to use a lot of the same tactics: clickbait and drama. I used to follow his videos. I just watch the Hatriot Mail segment now.

About this robot-post. I read many of the comments in the subreddit and holy shit..They have a sad view of their own sex and their relationships to their wives and women in general.
I don’t mind the robots, though. They can have them if they want. I don’t agree that they are a threat in any way. Not to women, not to society.

I’m with frootloopsie. Male sex robots will exist if female sex robots exist. Can’t you just imagine the deer-in-the-headlights freeze of an MRA/PUA once they realize that their negging might just drive a woman to conclude that she’d rather spend time with something that doesn’t insult her, doesn’t have some sort of slimy agenda, and doesn’t bear the risk of overriding her consent?

Well my two observations are that as usual anything these guys don’t like is branded feminist, regardless of it’s actual motivations; and that there again that women have no sexual desires, they just use sex as a means of currency.

There’s an MRA blogger Anglobitch who uses these arguments in favour of prostitution, he is convinced that women oppose prostitution because they fear the competition, he cannot conceive that feminists might want to assist and protect other women from exploitation. He also insists that sex trafficking is a myth made up by feminists. Likewise these redditors cannot conceive that the Campaign Against Sex Robots stems from a concern for the rights of sentient robots, not a desire to spoil their fun.

I’ve mentioned on previous threads my misgivings about self aware robots, and that if they can think for themselves they deserve autonomy. This wouldn’t just apply to sex robots, but also military ones. I’ve seen Blade Runner enough times 😉

-raises hand- Um, personally I fully support these dudes getting all the ‘bots they need to avoid ever interacting with another human female (or any, really) ever again. Just saying.

I’ve also backed the hell off of sex work discussions in general except in very broad terms because yeaaaahhhh errggh.

I wonder, is any country trying the approach of decriminalizing individual sex work but criminalizing the fuck out of pimping? Maybe to the point of being super stringent about anything looking like a brothel?

I can imagine how it could be problematic, and loopholes to be exploited, but…

It’s hard to believe this is even real. A paper is written with the position that sexbots will add to the objectification of women and children, and how do MRAs interpret it? “These things that exist for me to have sex with are mad because sexbots will be new things for me to have sex with!” Women as sex objects is such a core concept for them that when they encounter a different viewpoint their eyes just slip off the page.
