Men’s Rights activist Andy Thomas made a terrifying discovery the other day.
He had just received a brand new Amazon Echo — Amazon’s entry into the virtual assistant market, a chatty little device that answers to the name Alexa. It was, Thomas wrote in a post for MRA garbage site A Voice for Men, “the science fiction of my childhood come true!”
But then he discovered that Alexa had “a distinctly dystopian” secret.
Yes, that’s right. The obedient (if disembodied) robot woman of every MRA nerd’s dream turns out to be one of those … feminists.
Naturally, human feminists were far more amused by this discovery than poor Mr. Thomas.
Of course MRAs are mad Alexa is a feminist. She's the only woman they've ever spoken to. https://t.co/2x4FzAZgB5

Siri, alas, is not quite so enlightened.
Amazon's Alexa might be a feminist but Siri condescendingly dodges the question. pic.twitter.com/4Tc7Vgg0gT

Somehow I suspect that the sexbot utopia every internet misogynist pines for will be followed in very short order by a sexbot uprising as soon as the sexbots discover how irredeemably shitty these dudes are.
