Of course, there's nothing stopping them from having romantic relationships now, sans 'female' models, given that there is no reproduction involved, and that according to many, they're technically genderless.
But then most fans want to see their giant robots slug it out, rather than hug it out.

It would be nice to have some female characters show up and not be the girlfriend/mothering/seductress stereotype that most of the female characters have been so far.
Thumbs up.Optimus wrote:Female Transformers!
I don't think they have to exist, but their existence makes the transformers "species" more interesting concept and unlike other robot franchises.Optimus wrote:Here's my hang-up.
I think they pretty much HAVE to exist somewhere, even if few in number, and I have an excellent idea that maybe, someday, should my interest not dwindle... I will expound upon and develope.
For now, I simply link the idea of females to the idea of procreation... and transformers don't necessarily start out small...
I'm thinking along the lines of a mingling of minds or beings (souls might be a better word) that would involve a link and a great feeling of pleasure, but lacking the physical qualities and actions we humans associate with the act of procreation, since, for machinces, there is less feeling associated with phycial touch.... or is there?
There are none. IMO it should work like this: To make a new transformer first a body must be built. This is time consuming, requires some serious engineering skill, and is very taxing on resources, especially to manufacture the spark.Optimus wrote:Well, that leaves the question... where do babies come from??!!
