Objectification Event Horizon

If I started going off on all the horrible things happening here, we'd be here until the heat death of the universe. It is feminist kryptonite. It is objectification of the highest order - it is a fundamental oversimplification and misunderstanding of the pursuit for artificial general intelligence, and aside from completely missing every ethical ramification of constructing sapient awareness, the whole strip exudes an utterly foul narrowmindedness about technology which is only partly comical.

So instead of picking that apart piece by piece, I'd like to attack the filename. Every one of these strips is named "CR(number).png". CR stands for "Crisis Rising." I don't remember what the crisis was supposed to be, but it never happens in these strips.
