Maybe she'll let Squig go so he can get tacos.

I'm genuinely curious how Slick will react to this. Remorse? Trying to justify it?

Man, this makes me think that if my vibrator ever gained sentience and came after me with shotgun, I'd have a lot to answer for.

Lie. Like a rug. Or even lamer, he'll say nothing and hope she doesnt give him an extra mouth.

or he could like... tell the truth... he wanted companionship... he figured a fembot was the way to go... The fake relationship wasn't working so he went into the reality zone... it didn't turn out... He didn't make the same mistake twice... Granted that this logic isn't coming from the offended party so it might not mean much to said offended party... who has a gun to his face...

Realizing that she is the only sentient fembot may make things worse or better... I hope she realizes that they have to be taken to the reality zone to become sentient... and that they are just programmed machines until that happens...

Don't worry. It will probably switch to something else tomorrow, and something else again the day after. We can't have plot here!

(that's how I convince me not to think about it too much... now I'm going to sleep until tomorrow just in case)

That's only if the plot continues tomorrow.

But that would require Slick to have retained any of the character development and/or maturity he's had over the years. Not something I'd want to bet on.

Oh come on!

Slick bought a fembot back when she was nonsentient so he could have personal enjoyment and not bother anyone else. He's got nothing to apologize for!

Whelp, I'm genuinely whiplashed.

If my PC became sentient, yeah I'd apologise. I'd apologise a lot for all the shitty sites I made it surf to. Sorry PC.

Oh come on!

Fembots in this comic are symbols for the passive and active commoditization and denial of agency for women, especially in a sexual context. By buying a fembot, Slick is actively participating in and reenforcing said system, and is totally guilty of it.


Here, phrased in a way that isn't trying to mirror your structure for rhetorical purposes: Fembots stand in for the exploitation of women. Therefore (despite it not being the logical thing for the characters to do in the comic), fembots actually are sentient, just brainwashed. Slick bought a sentient-but-brainwashed fembot. And if you're going to try to say "but DevilCorp said...", remember that DevilCorp (here) stands in for the patriarchal norms our society subscribes to, and that makes it impossible to drop the blame off there, just like "But beer commercials promised me that I'd get all the naked babes, so I deserve to get the nake babes and should take the naked babes" is an irresponsible way to shift blame in the real world.

I mean, yes, fembots are symbolic in a meta sense, but from Slick's perspective, he's bought an electronic device for sex things, and now the electronic device is sentient and threatening to shoot him in the face.

I'd hate to have to answer for some of the things I've done with electronic devices. >.>
