Robots can't have a sexual orientation because they don't have a biological sex. Or anything biological, for that matter. There might be human/robot relationships - how disgusting that may be - but by definition they can't be straight, gay or bi.

I wouldn't say it's especially daring these days.

I'm fine with it; just not sure it counts as cojones. It would have ten years ago.

People use to say this about black people. You are just on the wrong side of history.

You could conceivably program a robot to feel sexual attraction.

On the other hand, I'm not sure why you would.

When you drink with someone does that instantly make you a thing?

Fie! You could conceivably program a robot to behave as though it felt sexual attraction!

It does when you're both named characters and/or wanted criminals, and also the only people in the room.

Honestly, I'm not sure how that's different. Love may be a series of chemicals in the brain, but that doesn't make it less meaningful.

What kind of an idiot would make a robot you can't fuck?

The human brain cannot be copied, saved and restored, nor can it safely be modified to operate under specified parameters. A state machine behaving as though it feels sexual attraction is in this way different from an organic brain stimulated to feel sexual attraction.

Right, but if the effect's the same...

no, but on the holidays in a seedy bar with just the two of you when you are, in theory, enemies, what with the reformation of Overwatch and Talon being da ebulz.

I know its impossible since hes in that one photo but I love the headcanon that Sombra has no idea who McCree is and they just randomly stumbled into the same bar

Also: who is that photo Jack is looking at? Liao?

Who are the kids on Reinhardt... are they all torbs? Is that viking woman torbs wife?

I expect a lot offcomics to makefun of the fact that Tracers Gf is named Emily and widows real name is Amelie

1.) I was thinking Liao.

B.)

Which creates a very unattractive image.

3.) I'm hoping that's Pharah's dad that she's with and that he's First Nations. It would give sense to the thunderbird and raindancer skins.

Having seen it, I still can't quite believe none of us came up with the line "Cheers love, the Cavalry's queer"

McCree's knocked out and Sombra's at the other end of the bar minding her business. I still don't understand how you're getting relationship out of that...

What are the chances they'd both be in the same bar on Christmas otherwise?
