All the posts below this one were written before I made this blog, migrated here from what might be called an older blog of mine, Ben has opinions.
tl;dr They're not personal assistants.
This essay is a response to the following article: A Rape Survivor Speaks Out About Transgender Bathrooms and a post on Google+. For the purposes of this essay, I will use "bathrooms" as an encompassing term for "restrooms, bathrooms, locker rooms, dressing rooms, and other areas designated one-sex-only".
tl;dr AI is not a threat.
