Sexually Objectifiying Robots in Germany – UPDATED

Sex Robots

“Robots perform a pole dance on the eve of the start of the 2014 CeBIT technology trade fair in Hannover.” Yes, that is apparently what CeBIT attendees want to see – the sexual objectification of… robots.

Just how many things are wrong with pole dancing robots – complete with ‘breasts’ – is difficult to actually calculate. Let’s try a few:

  • They are robots. This is like watching toasters masturbating.
  • They are ‘females’ due to their plastic breasts. So it’s misogyny.
  • It is not sexy. They are robots.
  • Surely if they really needed to get off on watching women perform, then technologists in Germany could find real pole dancers in Hannover?
  • Female technologists and attendees must really have felt comfortable.

Please feel free to add your own reasons in the comments below.
