Today's comic was probably inspired by that anti-trans bullshit that went down in North Carolina. A thing I've seen a lot online is the attitude that bigots are on the wrong side of history, and that over time their voices will be diminished by the gradual shift of public opinion. I think this is true! But I also think it can potentially obscure the very real need for active efforts to enact social change.
Anyway, this is the sort of thing writing jokes about robots wanting meat arms makes me think about.
