The sexbot and the feminist

WYB?
That image is from a criminally underrated show on Fox from last year called "Almost Human", starring the even more criminally underrated Eomer SSGT John Grimm Karl Urban. (Fox very sadly cancelled that show waaaaay too soon- what is it about the knuckleheads in management there who insist on cancelling terrific shows after just one season? Bastards...)

And the woman playing the sexbot from the episode "Skin" is one Darla Taylor, whose flagrant hotness (at least, in that episode) is rather germane to a very interesting article penned by Nero today on the subject of the coming implosion of the feminist movement:
The fact that wacky, misandrist intersectional feminists are an unpopular minority — as a result of their horrid influence, just 18 per cent of women now call themselves feminists — doesn’t matter because they hold court in the media and on campuses, and young women are starting to parrot discredited and absurd nonsense about the “oppressive patriarchy,” picking up on a victimhood script they believe they can leverage for social and professional advantage. 
In response, men are simply checking out, giving up on women and retreating into porn and video games. I call it the “sexodus,” and its immediate victims aren’t men, but women, who are being consigned to singledom as men lose interest in them or are simply too exhausted or fearful of the social consequences of approaching girls romantically. The truth is, men get along okay without women, unlike women, who become shrieking, neurotic messes if they’re still single in their 30s. 
Sorry, no offence, but it’s true: women have been getting steadily unhappier since the Second World War, when they first entered the workplace in large numbers. It sounds bizarre, but ever since the rise of feminism, every decade has seen another slump in female morale. Women now report themselves more generally depressed and more likely to think about suicide than at any time in history. (The vast majority of suicides are still men, by the way. Women talk about it endlessly, but rarely pull it off.) 
The fight for women’s “equality” has always been absurd: why would a woman want to step down to the lower status of being equal with men? Why should women be badgered into choosing to work over having babies and being happy? Why are feminists lying to women that they can look however they want — fat, hairy armpits, piercings, blue hair — and still be content
Women were told by feminists that they could “have it all” — the career, the husband, the kids and the book club. But it was a lie. What they’ve ended up with instead is a tiny apartment in an “up and coming” bit of town, friends they hate, a string of disastrous and emotionally unfulfilling past relationships and a cat. 
Had the relations between the sexes been healthier today, there wouldn’t be much call for sexbots to get in the way. Women already had the upper hand, sexually. They had what men wanted. There’s a reason the Ashley Madison leak showed that the site was over 90 per cent male. 
But gender relations in the West are at their worst for fifty years, possibly more, which is why popular men’s bloggers are now asking whether sexbots will replace women entirely. The consensus seems to be: for some men, yes, totally. For other men, they will become a masturbation tool. A few “alphas” and players at the top will be able to bang their way around the entire female population, which will be comprised of ever more neurotic, backstabbing and insane behaviour. 
Feminists always hate when they accidentally get what they want. They’ve been waging a war on sex on campuses and elsewhere for decades. Now, suddenly, they will earn the fruits of their labour: the “whiny manbabies” they’ve been bullying for so many years are going to be ejaculating into silicon-ribbed pleasure-bots, instead of grovelling at their feet for a chance to smell their knickers.
Would YOU say no? I mean, once they get rid of all those weird lines?

As Milo himself points out, he is far from the first to make these observations. Here is what Roissy/Citizen Renegade/Heartiste/whateverthehellhisnameisnow had to say on the subject more than 8 years ago:
The entire market structure of dating will shift seismically in the direction of men becoming choosier and less willing to please and women becoming looser and more willing to please. 
The basic premise I have outlined above rests on a simple observation — the more physically satisfying choices men have to sate their lust, the less needy they will be with women. And non-neediness translates into a slight downgrade in the asking price of single women. Because women are more loathe to settle than men, there will be a rush to the top as the dwindling number of acceptable male prospects commands the attentions of an ever-growing pool of women. Polygamy will rush in to fill the need.
And here is what Blackdragon said on the exact same subject, four years and change ago:
Once the sex robots’ price gets down to the $500 – $1000 range, placing them in range of just about any guy who is not really poor (and even those guys will be able to rent them for a few hours), you will see the greatest shift in sexual power ever experienced by the human race. It will be equal to or greater than the upheaval during the Sexual Revolution of the 1960’s. 
When any man can go home and fuck his Scarlett Johansson robot or Kim Kardashian robot (or whichever celebrity will be considered super hot at that time), and he can do so without her demanding dates, free dinners, a sounding board for her drama, marriage, monogamy, picking up his socks, or refraining from burping at the table, and he can fuck Ms. Robot bareback to his heart’s content without ever needing to worry about pregnancy, child support payments, or catching an STD…oh, when that happens…you will see, for the first time in human history, women lose most (if not all) of their power over men.
Finally, here is what I said about the phenomenon, almost exactly a year ago:
It won't just be the Gammas and Omegas and sad lonely shut-ins who will go for these new sex-bots. It will be ordinary men who want sex without having to deal with all of the hassle and nonsense of dating, and all of the drama that comes from dealing with an actual woman. As ordinary Western men flee their harridan wives and girlfriends in exchange for gorgeous, always-on, always-ready, and always-lubricated sex robots, Western women will suddenly find that they have exactly zero power over men.
All of us foresee the exact same thing happening: an immediate, catastrophic, and irreversible erosion and then collapse of the very strong hold that women have over men.

The reason is easy enough to figure out intuitively, but harder to put into words. The simplest way to describe the reason behind that coming collapse of female power can be found within the answers to a series of basic questions.

Why do men do what we do? Why do we take risks? Why do we put ourselves in harm's way, doing flatly insane things like fighting and killing and dying on distant battlefields, or battling forest fires, or jumping out of perfectly serviceable aircraft, or drilling in remote places under dangerous conditions for a gunky, nasty, smelly substance that just so happens to be the foundation for our entire economy? Why do we kill ourselves working crazy hours in office jobs that many of us hate, just for the relatively meagre reward of a possible promotion and pay raise at the end of the year, if we're very lucky and don't piss off some condescending cunt in HR?

The answer is to be found between the legs of a woman.

It has always been thus. We take risks because we men are wired that way- because our reward for taking risks and being masculine is, or should be, female attention and companionship. And that is because women are wired to like men who like to take risks. That is why we spend so much of our lives searching for money, power, and influence- because that is what women want and admire.

And the reward that they confer upon us for taking those risks is, quite simply, sex.

While it is a tad cold-blooded to reduce human relationships down to mere physical acts, the fact remains that men demand sex, and women supply it. Because they are the sole source for it (for now), they can, and do, and absolutely will, raise the "price" of that access to far beyond its true worth.

That is why women have been able to get away with more than forty years of feminist bilge about "equality" and "women's rights".

After all, how many husbands have the intestinal- and testicular- fortitude to stand up to their wives for more than a few days, when they come home from a long hard day at work only to find a slice of cold pizza awaiting them for dinner on the table and a frigid, shut-down partner in bed, simply because they refused to vote in favour of legal quotas demanding that women receive 40% of all seats on company boards?

The advent of realistic sexbots changes that power equation completely and totally.

These robots will start out very, very expensive, to be sure- far out of the reach of ordinary men. But then, the same thing happened with personal computers and calculators and microwaves. Over a period of 20 years, the same machine that once cost $10,000 (in today's money) will rapidly decline to costing less than $1,000 and yet will be vastly more powerful, better-featured, and more capable than its predecessors.

And that, too, will happen with sexbots. Just imagine what will happen to male-female power dynamics when a man can pay, say, $3,000 for a stunning blonde or a lascivious raven-haired beauty who is always ready, always wet, always compliant, never burps or farts or has to go to the bathroom, never has a period, never demands that you wear a condom, never gets pregnant, and never ever says no?

What happens when any just about any man with more than a few thousand dollars in personal savings can walk into a store and walk out again with his greatest fantasy ready to be delivered overnight to him, with nothing much needed other than a power socket and a service every few thousand... uh... uses?

The Tricia-3000, Cylon version. Presumably without miniguns where her nipples were.
Indeed, one could take this hypothetical to truly hilarious extremes- like, say, the second-"hand" market. There is no end to the amount of fun that could be had.

Women will suddenly discover that their single greatest hold over men will disappear overnight. And that absolutely terrifies feminists the world over. They know full well that what is coming will destroy them and their literally retarded ideology.

No longer will they be able to marry a man and provide him with return for sex, then divorce-rape him in court and walk away with most of his wealth, his possessions, his mental health, and all of his children in tow. That same man can simply keep the first three if he's willing to sacrifice the possibility of the fourth.

The moment that once sexless men no longer have to choose between: a) continued frustration and lockout from the sexual marketplace; b) spending years and decades approaching women, either in person or online, and getting repeatedly shot down by bitchy women with vastly inflated opinions about their own sexual status; c) prostitutes; and d) porn + tissues + Rosy Palm, the entire ridiculous edifice of feminism comes crashing down because it no longer has any foundation.

Women in general, and feminists in particular, will finally have achieved "equality", in whose name they have done such tremendous damage to civilisation itself. And when they are glutted upon it, they will find that the taste of it will have turned to ashes in their mouths.

I almost regret not seeing the re-imagined "Battlestar Galactica". ALMOST.
There is, however, one rather large fly in the ointment. And none of the commentators above picked up on it.

Vox Day, however, did:
This isn't to say sex robots will have a positive effect on human society, indeed, those societies that don't ban them may well find themselves failing.
The reason he says this is that he is looking at it from the equally cold and dispassionate perspective of reproduction. And that, too, is simply a numbers game.

What most sexbot enthusiasts conveniently ignore about opening up Pandora's hot sexy artificially lubed box is that only women are capable of conceiving and carrying life. Only they are capable of producing the next generation of idiots, cannon-fodder, risk-takers, and innovators that drive our species forward. And they are the ones who will suffer the most, by far, when sexbots become real and cheap enough to make a serious dent in the sexual preferences of most men.

Fertility rates are already collapsing throughout the civilised world- and they are showing signs of collapsing even in the fertile Islamic world, where people have apparently not forgotten what is important. And when, not if, sexbots become real and cheap (enough) to replace both prostitutes and uppity college girls with useless liberal arts degrees whining about the evils of "patriarchy" while expecting their beta orbiters to buy them endless free drinks, they will collapse even further.

That is a death spiral with no way out, save one: artificial wombs.

And even there, we have a serious problem. It is difficult enough to raise a child right with two loving, committed, and dedicated parents- a pairing that is becoming ever more rare in today's world. It is far, far harder to raise strong sons and feminine daughters as a single parent. Sons need fathers to provide the rod and the staff of unquestionable moral authority, and mothers to provide the nurturing and care that they need in order to become strong and worthy men. Daughters need the same, for different reasons, in order to become graceful and virtuous women.

Artificial wombs cannot square that circle. Not on their own.

With all of that said, do I personally support the advent of sexbots? Well, yes, but with significant reservations. As I have stated repeatedly in the past, I strongly support monogamous marriage. I also have nothing but contempt for most feminist nonsense that passes for "wisdom" among the elites these days. I would certainly like to see the latter destroyed and the former strengthened. And sexbots are one way to do that.

I fear, however, that societies that allow sexbots to proliferate will find themselves staring at a rapidly ticking time-bomb. And after that explosion, picking out anything worthwhile from the ruins will be a futile exercise indeed.

  1. This post brought to mind the problems Japan is currently facing. Fertility rates are low, men have completely checked out of the dating and sexual markets and have no interest in starting families. They'd much rather enjoy the pleasures of porn and everything else Japan has to offer there. Introducing sexbots into the mix will only accelerate a rapidly deteriorating situation, as you say. This decay will be especially rapid in Japan unless something changes.

    1. That is pretty much how I expect it to play out. The great benefit of these machines will be the utter destruction of the entire feminist ideology. The great drawback will be the concurrent destruction of whatever remains of the male desire to procreate in most advanced societies. I'm not at all convinced that the upside truly outweighs the downside.
