Kathleen Richardson Voted Femihag of the Year 2015

Dr Kathleen Richardson is the winner of the Femihag of the Year Award for 2015.

The self-styled ‘anti-sexbot campaigner’ is lobbying governments to pass laws to put men in prison to be raped and beaten as sex offenders if they purchase robots for sexual purposes.

Disturbingly, her explicit motivation for doing so appears to be that if men have the option of sexbots, they will be less likely to pursue sexual relations with women and that this amounts to ‘exploiting women’.

In most cultures, attempting to obtain sex through force is regarded as attempted rape.  Of course, when feminists do it, rather than attempted mass rape, it becomes magically transformed into ‘protecting women and children from exploitation’.

She explained to El Reg that it was in investigating the manufacture of sex-robots that she initially became concerned about the philosophy going into the creation of robo-whores.

“The relationship that is being imported,” by the sex-bot developers is one that has come directly from that between “prostitutes and johns” according to Richardson, who finds it “very disturbing”.

In a paper titled “The Asymmetrical ‘Relationship’: Parallels Between Prostitution and the Development of Sex Robots”, Richardson proposes “that prostitution is no ordinary activity and relies on the ability to use a person as a thing and this is why parallels between sex robots and prostitution are so frequently found by their advocates.”

Asked whether it it might be more appropriate to consider robo-whores as sex toys, which would most typically be considered a private and solitary part of human sexual activity, Richardson stressed the opposite.

“To call them toys is to understate the issue,” she said. “It’s not as if it’s a Barbie.” Dr Richardson also surprisingly offered the idea that there may be some form of exploitation involved in the manufacture of My Little Pony dolls.

“The better term is ‘sex object’,” said Dr Richardson, who emphasised that the objectification of prostitutes in the prostitute/john relationship is one that’s mimicked in the relationship between sex-robots and their owners.

Questioned whether objectification was worthy of concern when actual objects were involved, rather than people who were treated like objects, Richardson turned away from the actual issue of banning robots – stating again that sex toys, and sex robots, exist because of prostitution.

“We must abolish prostitution,” she said.

“80 per cent of women are prostitutes,” she added, but confirmed that actually she had meant that the other way round. The remaining 20 per cent she suggested were made up of children and transgendered men.

The End of Women? Expert Predicts Men Will Prefer Sexbots by 2050

Bad news for anti-sexbot agitators Kathleen Richardson and Erik Billing – a world renowned expert in the field of predicting the future of technology has published a report claiming that women will largely be redundant by 2050 as most men will prefer to have sex with robots.

The report, published by futurologist Dr Ian Pearson, draws up a timeline for the rise of the sex bots. By 2030, virtual sex via VR devices will be as prevalent as porn is today, by 2035 the majority of people will own sex toys that work in conjunction with virtual reality sex, and by 2050 sex with robots will have overtaken human on human sex.

Ian Pearson claims an 85% success rate in predicting long term technological trends. He is indeed a world renowned expert in the field of ‘futurology’, and his foresight is sought after by leading companies and even governments. Unlike Dr. Kathleen Richardson and her made up role as ‘robot ethic professor’ at a third rate British university, as well as Erik Billing, the Swedish mangina working at a university ranked just inside the top 2000 in the world, Pearson is a genuine and proven expert in future technology and its likely impact upon society and social ethics.

Although he doesn’t quite claim that men will be only using sexbots by 2050, assuming the likely truth that most users of sexbots will be men, then it follows that if the majority of human beings in 35 years time will be having sex with robots rather than fellow humans, then almost all men will be MGTOW…with their sexbots. The clock is indeed ticking on female sexual tyranny.

‘The Rational Male’ on the Anti-Sexbot Campaign

One of the heavyweights of the manosphere – Rollo Tomassi (the rational male) – weighs in with his typically well thought out considerations on the anti-sexbot campagin.

(excerpt)

The mainstream loves a salacious story about the sexual misconducts of men. With the recent Ashley Madison data leak the narrative was one of blaming and shaming the overwhelming majority of men who signed up for an account to cheat in their spouses. This has resulted in more than one suicide. A topic of the Man in Demand Q&A session I fielded was how the Red Pill lens isn’t limited to just scoffing at the Blue Pill in popular media, but that it also gives men a sensitivity and awareness to better understand the motivations for social narratives like this.

Red Pill aware men understand that if there is an opportunity to cast blame or doubt on a man over his sexual impulse, or the consequences for allowing it to lead to behavior that conflicts with a feminine-primary social order, shaming will always be the go-to, socially acceptable strategy. Sex will always be a clichéd thumbscrew to gauge men’s personal resolve, and this is a built-in failsafe of control for the Blue Pill’s conditioning of men.

Erik Billing – The Swedish Mangina Who Wants Sexbots Banned

Erik Billing

Erik Billing is the Swedish mangina who is working with the feminist Dr Kathleen Richardson in campaigning for research into sexbots to be made illegal.  The two ‘academics’ operate an official website for their campaign.  It appears that it was Richardson who first had the idea for the campaign against sexbots, and thus far, has only managed to persuade one other ‘robot ethics expert’ to come on board – Erik Billing.

Erik Billing is Senior Lecturer in Informatics at the University of Skövde in Sweden.  The university does not appear in most global rankings, but according to one site it is ranked 1955th in the world. De Montfort University, the British former polytechnic that Kathleen Richardson is employed at as a’robot ethics professor’, is ranked at 861 by the same website.  Global media, from the BBC to the New York Times, have universally described these two individuals as ‘experts’ who are ‘warning of the dangers of sexbots’.

According to Erik Billing’s academic profile, part of his EU funded work includes researching robotics and A.I. as therapeutic tools for children with autism.  It is unclear how he squares this with campaigning for these children to be criminalized as sex offenders when they grow up into incel adults desperate to seek solace and affection in the arms of a realistic humanoid robot.

Dr Kathleen Richardson Motivated to Ban Sexbots Over Relationship Difficulties?

Dr Kathleen Richardson, who wants to put men who use sexbots, or indeed any ‘intelligent’ male sex toys, in prison as sex offenders, gives an insight into her motivation by appearing to admit that her interest in ‘robot ethics’ stems from her lack of success with men (from 1:25 mark).

If she’s having trouble attracting men now (and to be frank, it’s not hard to see why) then it must be clear to her that it’s game over when the teen sexbots arrive in a few years time.

What kind of a woman wishes to use government force to incarcerate men (likely to be anally raped by other ‘sex offenders’) for not choosing her as a sexual partner?

UK Feminist Launches Campaign to Outlaw Sexbots

And so it begins. Dr Kathleen Richardson, a feminist academic working at De Montfort University in Leicester, has launched a campaign to outlaw the development of robots for sexual purposes.

kathleen-richardson-ban-sexbots

A campaign has been launched calling for a ban on the development of robots that can be used for sex.

Such a use of the technology is unnecessary and undesirable, said campaign leader Dr Kathleen Richardson.

Sex dolls already on the market are becoming more sophisticated and some are now hoping to build artificial intelligence into their products.

Those working in the field say that there is a need for such robots.

Dr Richardson, a robot ethicist at De Montfort University in Leicester, wants to raise awareness of the issue and persuade those developing sex robots to rethink how their technology is used.

“Sex robots seem to be a growing focus in the robotics industry and the models that they draw on – how they will look, what roles they would play – are very disturbing indeed,” she told the BBC.

She believes that they reinforce traditional stereotypes of women and the view that a relationship need be nothing more than physical.

“We think that the creation of such robots will contribute to detrimental relationships between men and women, adults and children, men and men and women and women,” she said

It is not known whether ‘smart’ vibrators, and other automated ‘intelligent’ sex toys for women will be outlawed under Dr Richardson’s proposals, or if the plans just extend to sex toys designed for men.

Feminist Attacks On Sexbots Continue

http://aeon.co/magazine/altered-states/how-will-sexbots-change-human-relationships/

Levy argues that as long as sexbots are artefacts, without ‘artificial consciousness’, there are no ethical implications in having sex with them or using them for prostitution. However, should sexbots attain artificial consciousness, Levy argues there may be both legal and ethical implications not only for humans but for the robots themselves. But even if sexbots are not currently conscious, they do have the external markings of personhood, and we are programming them to be person-like. Indeed, we are programming them to be like a specific type of person: the type of woman who can be owned by a heterosexual man.

If women are the model on which most sexbots are based, we run the risk of recreating essentialised gender roles, especially around sex. And that would be too bad, because sex technology has the potential to alleviate longstanding human problems, for both men and women. Sex tech can help us take on sexual dysfunction and profound loneliness, but if we simply create a new variety of second-class citizen, a sexual creature to be owned, we risk alienating ourselves from each other all over again.

World’s first Sexbot gets a facelift!

Earlier this year an American company announced the creation of the world’s first sexbot.  Roxxxy TrueCompanion attracted the attention of the world’s media but seemed a rather primitive, if historic, first step on the road to fully fledged robots you’d actually want to have sex with.  Now, however, the creators of Roxxxy have announced a new and improved version.  The groundbreaking sexbot has been given a prettier face, improved A.I capabilities, as well as a degree of movement, as the following video amply demonstrates :

No doubt Ian Kerr and his feminist colleagues will be speeding up attempts to have sexbots banned or restricted.
