Swedish feminists are on the war path against sex robots. They claim such android sex workers promote dangerous attitudes towards women.
Writing in the Expressen newspaper, the heads of three Swedish feminist organizations argued that the appearance
and attributes of today's sex robots bore the same objectifying, sexualized and degrading attitude that was found in mainstream pornography.
The organizations behind the letter were the Sweden's Women's Lobby, the National Organisation for Women's
Shelters and Young Women's Shelters (Roks), and Unizon, a women's empowerment group.
They argued that the female robots lacked any agency when it came to dealing with the requests of male clients. They also warned that the type of fantasies made
possible by the opening of sex robot brothels would lead to real violence against women.
The activists are now calling for the Swedish government to implement a series of measures that would make it difficult for such a brothel to open in Sweden.
