And You Thought the Human-Roomba Relationship Was Bad?: USA Today Sinks to New Low

By Debbie Schlussel
Don’t say I didn’t warn you about this. And I was only joking when I predicted the North American Man-Roomba Love Association. America is declining faster than even I thought. I cannot believe this appears on the pages of a major American family newspaper. Why keep Hustler and Penthouse in plastic and brown paper bags, when this is available on America’s newsstand for kids of any age?:

Never thought of C-3PO as a sex slave? . . .

Starting with the basic truth that people fall in love with people, he moves to why people fall in love online, to why people love their pets, to why people love inanimate objects, etc. Then, why not people falling in love with robots? And, logically for Levy, why not people having carnal knowledge of their robot – and vice versa?
Whether you think that idea is creepy, amoral or aesthetically icky, or you think it sounds like a rollicking good time, if you don’t buy it as the inevitable future, Levy considers you a flat-Earther standing in the way of progress. . . .
Think robo-ho. . . .But look, some people are willing to boink anything.

Never thought I’d see the B-word “verb” in a mainstream media newspaper. Oy. And Eeuuww. No class. And like a bad episode of “The Outer Limits.” Thanks, McPaper. Three letters: T-M-I.

DIGUSTING!
That was the whole point of the VISION of 2001: A Space Odyssey — to reject the submission of the human race to its own computerized creations — for man to remain elemental, primal, spiritual.
The book is sexual fascism dressed up as fetishism.

Pretty soon we will have civil ceremonies in San Francisco and weddings in Massachussetts between men and robots. I mean, for some people, it feels right – therefore they should be allowed to marry the robot they picked up at Best Buy.
[JB: GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE. I MADE THIS EXACT POINT IN THE MAN-ROOMBA POST, WHICH IS LINKED TO IN THIS POST. I SAID, FORGET GAY-MARRIAGE. PRETTY SOON, THEY'LL BE ASKING FOR MAN-ROOMBA/ROBOT MARRIAGE. DS]

WOW. This is pretty bad. But never fear, I am pretty sure that the disgust that I feel towards this will be labeled as rampant robophobia. Just remember that they are born that way and it is not a chosen form of behavior children.

Exactly, Ford. Here is the leftist logic:
“Gayness” is a sexual preference.
Sexual preferences are not chosen, any more than skin color.
Therefore, if it is wrong to discriminate on the basis of skin color, it is wrong to discriminate on the basis of sexual preference.
Just insert (no pun inended) “Robophilia” for gayness.
(BTW, look for a modified version of this post under the UNICEF article.)
