Protecting the honor

Posted in Personal by Will on Thursday, November 13th, 2008 ~ 1pm

I am proud to say I got banned from a thread discussing Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, for protesting against some guy calling Cameron “Sexbot” (even though she’s never had sex with anyone, yet). Two people including myself said it was sexist and creepy to refer to her character in such a reductionist way. The sexist, creepy guy took it badly and we were all banned. Fortunately I’m still a member of the Fox Television forum and of the Facebook group, so I am not lacking for places to discuss the latest episode.

And I protected the honor …of a fictional character. I imagine that still counts for something.

Mind you I am not against Cameron hooking up with John Connor, in fact I am hoping for it. But I don’t think one aspect of a person’s (or robot’s) personality should be used to caricature her.
