Man Brings Fembot Home at Christmas to Meet His Parents


Christmas is all about awkward moments at family gatherings. Le Trung, inventor of the robotic woman substitute Aiko, took that principle to a whole new level when he decided that he should celebrate Christmas with both his parents and his fembot:

The science genius enjoyed a festive dinner with his mum, dad and his £30,000 fembot which he designed and built by hand.

Le, 34, from Brampton, Ontario, Canada, even bought gifts for his dream girl, who is so lifelike she speaks fluent English and Japanese, helped cook the turkey and hang up decorations.

'Aiko is like any woman, she enjoys getting new clothes,' he said.

'I loved buying them for her too.'

This scenario has got to be harder than the proverbial "Mom, I'm gay, and this is my boyfriend."

I wonder if his parents made them sleep in separate rooms.

So he built the thing with ersatz woman parts?

If he got the cash for the project from some sort of study grant, and I was the guy who shelled out the cash, I'd cry foul!

Misappropriation! Turn over the fembot or go to jail!

This is just one step on the road to the extinction of the human race. Or the extinction of everyone who can afford a sexbot, at any rate.

Just imagine how well a political candidate could do if he campaigned on the notion that each person has a right to a personal fembot.
