A source for the title?[change source]

I wouldn't know where to begin looking if this article had to be moved, but could we have a reliable source for the page name? MindTheGap (talk) 17:45, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

From the en:wp page Robot fetishism, http://www.metro.co.uk/metrosexual/article.html?in_article_id=36440 -- Creol(talk) 18:31, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
I can see that references technosexuality but not robosexuality. Not too much of a problem, unless creating the phrase here is considered original research. Though Robosexuality seems better than the EN version "Robot fetishism". Thanks MindTheGap (talk) 18:35, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
Yes, Robosexuality would be preferable to 'robot fetish'. And there is currently a redirect from 'robosexuality' on EN to 'robot fettish'. I havent looked around for this much, but I know it exists... here is something i found quickly on wikia:[1]... if we need more references I can go hunt some down later :) Benniguy talkchanges 18:48, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
the actual quote:

Bender: You really want a robot for a friend?
Fry: Yeah, ever since I was six!
Bender: Well, all right. But I don't want anyone to think we're robosexual or anything, so if anyone asks, you're my debugger.

The Futurama quote is all well and good, but that only shows what Robosexuality means in a fantasy world, not a real world environment. There are only slightly more than 1,0000 Ghits but for the sake of not introducing complex terms I suppose we will have to let this one go. MindTheGap (talk) 19:03, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Perhaps the idea of the unclarity could be incoorporated into the article? That way, the reader would know both sides of the view. Benniguy talkchanges 19:19, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Coinciding sexualities[change source]

The reason I am keeping the section for sexualities is because - in an article that specifically discusses sexual attraction to robots - showing how it's also a subset of hetero-, homo-, or other sexualities is valid and relevant. If the IP editor who keeps removing the section would care to comment and start a dialog, it would be much appreciated. --Lithorien TalkChanges 04:54, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
