Transformer robots is another example of the robotic enterprise that tends to engineer machines in human's image: anthropomorphism.
After watching Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, I gathered that the robots in the movie are sexual beings. Three depictions in the movie imply this:
1) Wheelie, the small toy-robot, humming Megan Fox's leg like a lustful dog.
2) Arcee, the autobot with female-voice, in contrast with other transformers with male's voice.
3) Devastator had his testicles in the form of wrecking balls banging each other while he climbed the pyramid. (This is weirdly stupid because none of the construction vehicles that made up the Devastator has wrecking ball. On the other hand, if it is OK to show gigantic testicles hanging in the air, then it wouldn't be a problem is Transformers 3 show robots having sex with each other. That wouldn't violate the censorship code. It is not obscene to see a tractor banging another tractor with its oil hose inserted into the other's exhaust pipe, right?)
This is the reason why I find science fiction boring, especially if it involves the extraterrestrial. I've lost fascination towards these sort of works. It seems that all the aliens have to be the same as humans. Is this the farthest human imagination stretch?
