Androids

I’m rewatching Aliens and find myself bothered by a common trope in sci-fi movies: almost unfailingly in these films, androids – which are almost wholly indistinguishable from people – are treated like garbage-slaves by every other character.
In our current age where people name their Roombas, have emotional reactions to Siri, and reminisce about the Tamagotchis of their youth, isn’t it unrealistic to believe that, when confronted with perfect likenesses of our fellow humans, we would treat them so horribly simply because of their syntheticity?

Snowflakes are written in the moment and meant to have their relevance melt away with time.
