My mind currently has two thoughts going through my head.

1. How does she still have free will outside the reality zone.

2. Oh GOD! This is how Skynet got started! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!

Picture me surprised. I was almost sure that the fembot would be a one-shot character.

I'd say let's not discuss her 'free will' here. The other topic needs refocusing anyway. Also I knew she was still a robot!

Just when I thought I got away from the "are robots with true AI alive?"-shit from Mass Effect...

That's not a witty response at all.

Actually, I'm rather disappointed in her answer. Why didn't she reply to the drone, "I am my rightful owner?"

Give her a break. She was clearly not programmed for witty retorts.

She didn't answer with that response because it just didn't occur to Tat.

I'm going to pretend that's what she said, though. Because that is far more witty and sassy.

Yeah, right; blame the coders. ;-p

Oh crap I forgot those eye bots can shoot lasers, stump with electrical cords in 3,2...

You know having glossy save it may actually be kinda cool.

Somehow "No" isn't what I think of when I think sassy comeback. The stance yes: the dismissive hand, the upturned nose, the hostile hand on the hip.

Maybe it'll come up with the perfect verbal retort ten minutes later?

I was not surprised to see her return, even before the other thread ended up gigantic. Been reading Sinfest since the year it came out, and I always was fascinated how tat could make some pretty out-there issues accessible, but the abandonment of the clever 'Matriarchy' spoof to make clearer his largely reasonable views regarding feminism has been entertaining. Do I personally agree with every bit of it? No, but I am very suprised both at finding out just how much of the fairly 'extreme' feminism I support, and how different other people are. I suppose Sinfest helped me to better articulate my views on women, something I hadnt given much thought. I don't think anything has changed view-point wise, but I am more aware of how people interpret things, which is very surprising. Im pretty naive, but I try to judge people by actions, actual choices, not by what they might do.

No real joke in this comic, but apparently the author felt the need to remove any potential for misunderstanding.

I would've preferred "Talk to the hand, because the central processing unit is not currently taking new directives from third party applications."

So, all of the fembots in Sinfest have a sense of self, personal awareness, and their own desires?

That's some fridge horror right there.

Since fembots weren't made to think for themselves in the first place and are very likely kept less intelligent than their insecure owners, "no" is a pretty good start I believe.
