Three feminist Swedish organizations are claiming that sex robots and sex dolls reinforce the view that women are objects and normalize men’s violence against women, and they’re demanding legislation targeting technology that “reproduces ideas about exploiting women’s bodies“:
Three Swedish feminist organisations, Sweden’s Women’s Lobby, the National Organisation for Women’s Shelters and Young Women’s Shelters (Roks) as well as the empowerment organisation Unizon have published a joint appeal in the newspaper Expressen, in which they demand a state ban on “dangerous” sex robots for men.
The debaters noted that today’s sex robots often have the “appearances and attributes typical of the objectifying, sexualised and degrading attitude to women found in today’s mainstream pornography”.
“Why are men willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for a robot that obeys their smallest command?” the feminists asked rhetorically. “A female robot cannot say no to something that the man wants, if she is not programmed to do so”, the feminists complained.
The leaders of the women’s organisations claimed that fantasies stimulated by such technology may lead to real violence against girls and women. They also drew parallels with pornography, whose consumption, they claimed, leads to sexist attitudes and actual violence. The dehumanisation of women justifies slavery, and the exploitation of the female body through new technology is part of this, they claimed.
The three organisations demanded that an inquiry be made to produce proposals on “how technology and activities that normalise abuse can be restricted and prohibited”.
The feminists also want Swedish authorities to make it difficult for “brothels with sex robots and dolls” to open in Sweden. Unlike neighbouring Denmark and Finland, Sweden has yet to open an automated brothel with no human prostitutes. The organisations drew comparisons between sex robots and prostitution.
“Sweden has for 20 years had a regulatory framework that punishes sex buyers and which has reduced the demand for prostitution. Now, Sweden must take the next step and dare to address the ongoing technological developments that are driven by the sex industry at the expense of real women and girls”, they concluded.
Lastly, they demanded that such dolls and robots be included in sexual education curricula and addressed from a perspective that portrays the relationship between sexuality and power as problematic.
These angry feminists sound more jealous of these sex robots than anything else.
Feminism has clearly driven men away from women, and sadly some men find qualities in a sex doll that modern feminist women lack, and one of those qualities is submissiveness, which feminists openly mock. As part of feminist doctrine, there is not a worse transgression that a woman can commit than to submit to a husband.
But of course these feminists can’t get their story straight — while they want to ban sex robots, they have no problem with pornography and will defend it as a form of “freedom of speech”. And they will also defend Third World immigration, even if it means that thousands of Swedish women get violently raped. Feminists actually believe that lifeless sex dolls are more harmful to women than real live refugees that can and do rape them.
What sort of man would want a woman who thinks this way?
