Popular fiction has typecast its robots. Either as terrifying (Terminator) or cute (Star Wars).
This reminds me of the roles that African Americans or Native Americans were stuck with in the early days of both movies and television. They had to be either threatening or "tame."
Asimov was one of the few who wrote robots who had more depth of character.
My own writing attempts to do the same. I try to write from a post-stereotyped future. A future where robots are accepted as part of the social environment, just as racial minorities are now -- in the enlightened parts of the world.
I depict a robot-adapted culture in the same sense I try to depict a culture that is past the gender wars that give us so much guilty pleasure. I try to point out the backwardness of the current age by invoking the details of a more progressed society.
I admit that sometimes I have to lean on it heavily -- to get you to see it.
If you are offended, by these plausible futures, that may show that you're locked into your ancestors' ideas. Your grandchildren may get the point.
Adam likes the company of small domestic animals and 82% of women. Enjoys long walks in the rain (in the Pacific Northwest, he'd better).
