* This is something alot of people porbably wonder, but why? why? WHY do people put up with Faye at all? I mean all the shit she does can only be excused for so long, and even then theres pushing your' luck, in fact, the same argument could be applied for Dora but she doesn't have the "excuse" Faye has. personally those two are toxic trainwrecks, but Faye in particular irks me, like when she was with Angus and he had an awesoome super day, getting his dream job and being cool with trying out a LDR (though he made it there and back inside a day so "the city" can't be that far) and she has been supportive up front, but doubtful in the head, then when he breaks the news that "YAY i got my dream job, she RUINS it, by going "see how i was cool with it, I actually super wasn't cool with it, so we are done" basically completely shattering what was probably one of that guys happiest days ever, then she hasthe utter gall to go get hammered like he did the dumping, why would anyone even want to be near her?

**Also, in a "been there, done that" sense, knowing something and seeing something are two very different things. At this point, Dora is in what appears to be a successful relationship, and he is still single; that's gonna sting a little bit.

** More importantly, birth-control pills regulate ''when'' your period happens. No surprises and plenty of time to prepare for it.

** Besides the simple 'They didn't ask the AIs"...they presumably thought of it as AIs being put in military 'slavery', especially AIs who got combat bodies and had to pay for them, or AIs 'made' for combat. The idea of an AI choosing to become a soldier was foreign to them.

* I get that the AIs don't want to feared but why did the activists get AI soldiers banned? How is taking away rights from AIs at all helpful? That makes as much sense as LGBT activists getting the military to reenact Don't Ask, Don't Tell. It seems like the AI activist are taking two steps forward, one step back with their legislation. This is especially confusing to me because it denies several AIs their rights to choose their own career path AND this doesn't seem to exclude non-combative AIs.

* the whole "AI sexuality" thing, really. It started out as a one-shot gag involving Pintsize (who has no actual function except making crass jokes and behaving like an idiot) and expanded from there.
** broadly speaking, the AIs mostly present as either female (Momo, May, the Idoru staff) or neutral (Gordon, Winslow).
** they also follow most of the usual conventions; Station, in his role as Hannelore's surrogate parent, is pretty much an expy of Data or the "Voyager" Doctor hologram. Pintsize presents as male, because he is basically about gross-out humour and some fairly violent slapstick, which is a male role in live-action comedy. Kryten has various running jokes about "venting exhaust gases" and exactly where he attaches his vacuum-cleaner hose, in analogy. The Linux AnthroPC is basically a one-shot joke about computer geeks and neck beards.
** the female ones are either sympathetic (Momo) or in roles which wouldn't look out if place if played by Lucille Ball (the Idoru staff) or Roseanne Barr (May, in many ways). Momo can occasionally be risqué (the anatomically correct doll, or Sven day-dream) but this has been dropped because her present chassis would really not lend itself to this kind of thing
** mostly, AIs either have a more-or-less "human" presentation for convenient inter-action, or just don't bother because they don't need to, or (particularly Pintsize) would simply be an insufferable ass in human form. This DOES rather beg the question of why the world needs a robot convenience store assistant...

**I can speak from experience to say that this happens. If you see a woman a few times, there is that chemistry, and they claim to want to wait due to personal issues, and turn a round and start seeing g someone else... Well, it's a bummer. Makes you feel inadequate, or something. Now I need a beer.
