There’s a new show on the Fox Network called Almost Human. It’s a science fiction cop show that takes place in the year 2048. The second episode had to do with sex bots.
Since this is television, this episode of Almost Human had to have women being hardest hit by the existence of sex bots. That’s exactly what happened. Sex bots in Almost Human have lifelike skin, but it’s different enough that anyone can tell it isn’t the real thing. An Albanian crime ring decides to offer its customers with a more real sex bot experience, so they start abducting women and harvesting their skin to be used for the sex bots.
Since this is the year 2048, you would think the technology to grow human skin would exist making abducting women completely unnecessary. In fact, the first episode of Almost Human talks about how programmable DNA exists which can be used, among other things, to grow replacement organs for people. That means the show itself has established that the technology to grow human skin exists. There is no reason for an Albanian crime ring to abduct women to skin them. It would be easier and cheaper just to grow skin as part of the sex bot manufacturing process.
The only way that sex bots could “harm” women is by men deciding that they would rather have sex with sex bot than women. That would be ridiculous as the plot of a TV and would not have the effect of showing women as the victims of the evil menz. Instead we get the absurdity of “sex bots will cause women to be abducted for their skin”, ignoring what was established on the previous episode, to make it look like women are violated by sex bots.
