Sex Robot Shock: Increasing Sophistication of AI will Cause Massive Issues, Experts Warn
Editor's Note: Shockingly, Law School Professor Robin Mackenzie is not concerned with human mental health or the succubus-like nature of sex robots (the incubus model is undoubtedly being designed at this very moment). No, she is instead pushing a robot rights agenda that has been championed by degenerates like the Wachowski "brothers" (both of whom have "transitioned") in their movie Cloud Atlas.
Are robots slaves? Do they need rights? That is an ethical issue that should be set aside for the moment. The true issue here is what will happen to human reproductive patterns and how will society be transformed when men are no longer forced to compete for a high-quality mate?
A Futurama episode put it in simplistic yet accurate terms as to why one should not date robots:
Will this phenomenon plague "rich" people in the West, i.e. White people? Yes, most likely. It might seem like a minor issue, but it is not, for it has the potential to wreck havoc on the reproductive health of our people. If we view this in a positive light, however, it could benefit those who wish to propagate our kind and seek true human experience as nature intends. Those who feel compelled to live in a Matrix-like-VR-simulacrum will no longer compete for mates; genetically speaking, they will be eradicated from the gene-pool as they will be lost in an illusion.
The growing sophistication of sex robots is leading to moral and legal dilemmas, a leading academic has warned.
As technology has expanded sex robots have become increasingly lifelike, bringing about the need for a revolution in how we think about sex, morals and the legal status of these sex robots, according to Kent Law School Professor Robin Mackenzie.
Prof Mackenzie specialises in areas such as robotics and the ethical and legal relations between humans and robots.
She said: "Sex, law and ethics will never be the same. Sooner than we think, technologists will create sentient, self-aware sex robots, capable of emotional/sexual intimacy.”
Prof Mackenzie added: "Humans having sex with other humans who are unable to consent to sex, like children and adults lacking decision-making capacity, is seen as unlawful and unethical. So is human/animal sex. Such groups are recognised as sentient beings who cannot consent to sex with interests in need of protection.
"Sentient, self-aware sex robots created to engage in emotional/sexual intimacy with humans disrupt this tidy model.
"They are not humans, though they will look like us, feel like us to touch and act as our intimate and sexual partners. While they will be manufactured, potentially from biological components, their sentience, self-awareness and capacity for relationships with humans mean that they cannot simply be categorised as things or animals.
"Ethicists, lawmakers and manufacturers treat robots as things, but future sex robots are more than things.
"Robotic animated sex-dolls, able to simulate human appearance, assume sexual positions and mimic human conversation and emotions are on sale now. These are things, neither sentient nor self-aware, incapable of relationships or intimacy, as described in the Foundation for Responsible Robotics report just released.”
Advancements in technology has meant that these fake ‘women’ can now have realistic, lifelike characteristics and functionality.
A recent report, called ‘Our Sexual Future with Robots’ by the Foundation for Responsible Robotics, looked at a variety of issues the advancement sex robots will bring – one of which was the possibility of these sex robots being raped, or being programmed to simulate disturbing rape fantasies.
The report stated: “On the one hand, if a sex robot is designed to resist sexual advances such that their use constitutes a simulated act of rape, then building them puts the user in relationship with the act of raping a woman.
“It exhorts and endorses rape. On the other hand, building a robot that is passive or elicits sex is ethically problematic for what it communicates to the broader public about women’s sexuality.”
