I See How it Is

When a Femmebot is attracted to a human male, it’s a bug.

But apparently when brobots do it, it’s a feature.

 

(I figured an early post would be a nice change)

    That’s funny how ‘Tina’s just setting on the beach looking jealous/pissed off at the Professor. I’d like to know, and maybe you can help explain just how an why did Platinum develop a thing for the Prof?

      and notice how Mercury’s just as pissed off as her. I have no idea why those two robots seem to have a thing for the professor…. although the popular theory is that the professor intentionally built them to be like that, so that he would have at least two adoring figures stroking his ego while the rest was more for practical work. only, their over-the-top adoration of him was more than he expected/wanted.

     that actually parallels the lovely double-standards between human men and women too. 

    I’m starting to think that maybe the Metal Men actually served as an parody/mockery of human society at the time… with each robot representing facets of humanity. and the professor acts as an caricature of certain men at the time that the writers could make fun of without worrying about the backlash. Maybe they did this so they could show wee kiddies how nonsensical sexism and the like could be while pretending to be completely serious about it?

     Of course, the writers could also be just on drugs half the time.

    I’m to the point where I just assume that having a thing for Doc is a bug.

    Yeah, I’ll take drugs for a $100 Alex. Seriously though, you maybe completely right about all that. Never though of it like that, but it works for me.

    Doc sure works out! But why they are both stepping in that tar (it’s top dark to be oil)  filled water is beyond me.

    I don’t think he’s pissed off, he just sits/lays there dreaming of how it would be if he were strolling through the water with doc.

    I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Fire Island is robo-friendly.

    Robots want our women!  How can we repel the metallic menace?

    Oh, well, at least Tin and Nameless look like they’re having a good time.

    “That babe can short-circuit me anytime she feels like switching to robots!”

    Once you go robot, you never …

    Oh, never mind.

    That would be such an excellent alternate interpretation that it sadly cannot possibly be true.
