In my final robotics class, I was supposed to have a girl edit her story to tone down the violence. Depending on the audeince’s choices, one of her main characters is beaten or stabbed to death or murders another character.

She countered that another kid’s story was about Star Wars and an entire planet blew up. Curiously, that was Zac Snyder’s defense of Superman v. Batman.

Eventually she changed it so that the robot married his male bodyguard. Nobody complained about that at all.

Is this America? Violence is frowned on but gay robot sex is okay?

I’m okay with it.
