Transgender people want to be taken seriously, be treated equally – but not in the Sex Robot industry, apparently because it might “sexualize” them… Isn’t their sex the whole point?
Listen, I think I need a scorecard.
Turns out, there’s a big market for “transgender” sex robots, but trans activists warn there’s risks of sexualising trans people…
SO: They’re FOR mainstreaming transgender, but not if people are going to seek them out because of a fetish or **gasp – preference!
That will not do.
And that’s where the robots come in. Yeah, thought I forgot about that, didn’t you?
Realbotix , the Californian start-up responsible for the female Harmony sex droid is now considering making a transgender robot too, for those who .. um.. have trouble making up their minds? I really don’t know – but this does indicate that it’s a preference, at least for the pervert, I mean, person who buys or rents the transgender robot, right?
Not sure if I’d rent one, but that’s a whole ‘nother column.

Will you tell me something? If that’s a robot above there, why do they have to blur out the naughty bits? It’s not real. It’s like a mannequin, right? It’s not a human… or is it?
I wonder if it’s a man or a woman or if it just THINKS it’s a man or a woman. Can’t tell cause it’s blurred out. Anyway, I’m spent. Back to the story.
Powered by artificial intelligence software, the lifelike bots have their own personalities, and can even have a conversation with you, unlike a Bernie Sander’s supporter – so maybe they should be programmed to vote?
How would politicians appeal to the all-important robot voting bloc? Promise them extra batteries?
The female Harmony model was launched last year, and a male version was recently announced to be in development.

But a senior Realbotix director has told The Sun that a “transgender” model could be the company’s next big project.
“We do believe there is a market not only for transgender, but for any other sexual preferences of gender,” said Guile Lindroth, who heads up AI at Realbotix.
Lindroth said a trans robot is “not out of our plans” once the male robot is in production later this year.
He also told The Sun that it’s “not difficult” to re-design the physical robot design for a mixed-sex version.
The AI whiz explains that Realdoll, the company that started Realbotix, “already offers the option of transgender” sex dolls – without robotic functionality, of course.
Realdoll currently offers penis attachments for female sex dolls… Thanks – already got one. The company offers to create custom-built “trans” dolls for anyone willing to pay, and this really pisses off the trans community because now they’re just like everybody else – treated like a peice of meat. Well isn’t that what you wanted? No?
If I were an activist, I’d jump up and down and say this was a perfect example of why trans people are normal and deserve rights like having loneyly guys crawl all over them for $15,000 or whatever these robots cost with the retractable genitals. God, get a magazine.
Trans activists have doubts about whether so-called “transgender” robots would be a good thing for the LGBT community.
Christine Burns MBE, a trans rights activist for nearly 30 years, told The Sun that a sex droid might just promote “the porn industry’s idea of a ‘she male'”.
She says this is a “creation which some kinds of men get aroused over”, but which bears “no resemblance to everyday trans people”.
“This kind of exploitative fantasy creation simply reinforces the idea that trans women are sexual objects.”
Geez ya can’t win. Treat someone differently they’re mad, treat them like everyone else, they’re mad, make a robot and sequester yourself for a month with it and they’re mad. Isn’t it time we just admit these folks are just mad? It’s got nothing to do with penis’.
Here’s another fake robot they won’t let us see:

The challenge, the companey says, is adapting the actual trans robot software to be compatible with “variations” of Realbotix dolls.
I have the answer: Just make the robot pissed off all the time.
