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.
