FYI: When referring to androids, the term "robot" is a slur as it means "automaton laborer". Please use language considerately thank you.

Actually the full origin of the word is the Slavic "robota" which literally means forced peasant laborer in the Feudal system. o_o

So if androids ever did exist, this'd be one of those words that describes both a people-group and simultaneously the occupation of servant or slave as though that is their intrinsic inescapable nature...which (unless I'm mistaken) is the primary reason why the N-word is what it is #_#

@codepuppy with the help of the transformers we've been working on reclaiming the term
