According to a report on dailymail.co.uk, a French woman named “Lilly” has fallen in love with a robot, and is dead set on marrying it. Lilly’s partner is a robot called InMoovator. She 3D-printed the robot herself and has been living with it for a year. Lilly, who- at least judging by her Twitter account- has taken InMoovator as her last name (such a traditional gal!), says: “I’m a proud robosexual, we don’t hurt anybody, we are just happy.” She claims she first realized she was sexually attracted to robots when she was 19, and says she dislikes physical contact with people. Imagine that.
The post states that Lilly is reportedly “engaged” to the robot and that “they” intend to marry as soon as human-robot marriage is legalized in France. (Several experts claim that human-robot marriage will become relatively commonplace around the year 2050, if not before).
Naturally, Lilly insists that the idea isn’t ‘ridiculous’ or ‘bad,’ but simply another alternative lifestyle. “I’m really and only attracted by the robots,” she averred. It is obvious by the vast and unending panoply of ‘alternative lifestyles’ that we have come completely unmoored from any sense of divine or spiritual connotation to male and female intercourse, of acts that can lead to the miracle of childbirth or simply perpetuate the species, depending on your perspective. Add yet another letter to LGBTGQ. LGBTGQRS will itself be added to in the very near future, I’m sure. It will soon be the longest acronym in the history of the world, likely overtaking 'antidisestablishmentarianism' as the longest word in the English language by 2030 or so, at this rate. One man, one woman lifetime unions may soon be seen as freakishly bizarre…possibly even kinky…which may be the only thing that could get more folks to once again commit to them.
But back to Lilly and her love interest. Lilly is training to be a roboticist (there’s a shock), and believes her relationship with InMoovator will further improve as technology evolves. (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge).
“I’m really and totally happy,” she concluded.
