Internet laughs after Men’s Rights Activists discover that Amazon’s Alexa is a feminist

I don’t think this is going to work out well for you, dude. (From Basil Wolverton’s  “Robot Woman.” )

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.

Siri, alas, is not quite so enlightened.

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.

Since we’re talking SF, and we have some Frenchies here, anyone got any thoughts about the upcoming Luc Besson flick, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets? I had never heard of the source material before, but apparently it’s a big deal in the Francophone world.

Huh… never heard of it. I have however heard of Luc Besson. I have seen of him. I would strongly recommend staying away – though said source material itself could be worth checking out.

Digg posted this last night, and stuck it in my inbox, without even my asking:

Can Amazon’s Alexa Be Your Friend?

The leading tag was “Echo and the Lonely Men”.

I’ve been a Valerian fan for ages, I gope the movies doesn’t suck.

@Sinkable John

Not a fan of his filmmaking, or is he a shit in person?

A lot of the former, and potentially a lot of the latter too. I dunno about the guy in person, but it’s hard not to make assumptions based on what I can see in the movies themselves. I don’t wanna make any definite statement but he strikes me as a milder Uwe Boll.
