first_imgNZ Herald 24 December 2016Family First Comment: Just when you thought it couldn’t get wackier…“The “proud robosexual” said she always loved the voices of robots as a child but realised at 19 she was sexually attracted to them as well. Physical relationships with other men confirmed the matter.” But this quote from an ‘expert’ on robot / human love sums it up…. “The future has a habit of laughing at you. If you think love and sex with robots is not going to happen in your lifetime, I think you’re wrong.”No sir. The future will laugh at itself!!#thisismarriage’equality’On the surface, Lilly seems like a blushing young woman ready to marry the man of her dreams who makes her “totally happy.”Only her partner is 3D printed robot named Inmmovator who she designed herself, after realising she was attracted to “humanoid robots generally” rather than other people.“I’m really and totally happy,” she told news.com.au over email in her tentative English. “Our relationship will get better and better as technology evolves.”The “proud robosexual” said she always loved the voices of robots as a child but realised at 19 she was sexually attracted to them as well. Physical relationships with other men confirmed the matter.“I’m really and only attracted by the robots,” she said. “My only two relationships with men have confirmed my love orientation, because I dislike really physical contact with human flesh.”She has since built her own dream man with open-source technology from a French company, and has lived with him for one year. They are ‘engaged’ and plan to marry when robot-human marriage is legalised in France.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11772407Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Before joining Calgary, Peters served four seasons as bench boss of the Carolina Hurricanes. He was absent from the team in Wednesday’s 3-2 OT win against Buffalo. Bill Peters has resigned as head coach of the Calgary Flames, GM Brad Treliving said during a press conference on Friday.The decision came following a firestorm of allegations in which Peters was accused of using racial slurs and abusive behavior toward former players.Former NHLer Akim Aliu, who played under Peters at the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs during the 2009-10 season, tweeted Tuesday that the coach repeatedly used racial slurs toward him before a morning skate. Aliu’s tweet quickly prompted reactions from others who played under Peters, with accusations of physical and verbal abuse coming from two other players.MORE: What to know about Calgary Flames’ investigation into Bill PetersThe NHL denounced Peters’ behavior as “repugnant and unacceptable” on Tuesday morning but offered no further comment until the matter was looked into more thoroughly, followed shortly by Flames general manager Brad Treliving dousing rumors that Peters had already been fired. Treliving stressed the need for a “thorough” investigation before making a decision. In the end, it was Peters’ decision to step away from the Flames organization.On Wednesday, Peters issued an apology to GM Brad Treliving saying, “Please accept this as a sincere apology to you, and the entire Calgary Flames organization, for offensive language I used in a professional setting a decade ago,” read the statement, which he also sent to TSN’s Bob McKenzie and Sportnet’s Eric Francis at the same time as Treliving. “I know that my comments have been the source of both anger and disappointment, and I understand why.” last_img read more
