Well, so far, things seem to be working on a color wheel. Red was anger, resentment, whathaveyou. Light-blue is almost the opposite of red on the color wheel, which seems largely related to empathy and acceptance. Yellow is the polar opposite of purple on most interpretations of the color wheel, and we have seen purple. Purple seemed to have meant resentful yet empathetic. Which makes sense, since ZK at the time felt guilty over hurting Ethan’s feelings in regards to Winter-een-mass. ZK was still angry at humans and hated them as a whole, but felt bad hurting Ethan specifically. This… Read more »

There are 2 ways this can develop, and both are well known scenarios in literature:
1)ZK only heard the last part and is wondering why Ethan did that to him
2)And I bet for this one: ZK heard it all and is asking “why you care so much about me”

I literally don’t care what you call the robot – it, they, he, she, ey, ZK, or anything else. It’s not like Zeke’s real and has real feelings to hurt.

What I DO care about is this constant trolling and sniping. People care more about treating a fictional character with respect than about treating a human being with respect.

With all due respect, I am a living example of the falsehood of your assertion. I couldn’t care less about calling fictional characters by their preference, because they don’t exist and it won’t hurt them to be misidentified. But when it’s a real person, I will absolutely attempt to call them by their preferred reference, because not doing so may very well hurt them. Empathy is understanding how others feel about things. Taking into account a fictional characters fictional desires and fictional feelings when taking real action is not empathy. I don’t know what you’d call it – Conformity? Rigid… Read more »

If you’re going by the rules of English grammar, anything that isn’t a person (i.e. a human) is referred to by the singular pronoun “it”, this includes non-human animals. “They” is a neutral collective pronoun.

Whether you adhere to that rule or not is up to you. Just know that you’re imposing a esoteric rule expecting people to refer to Zeke as “they”.

I think “Zeke” would actually fit as a pronoun and as Zeke’s name. Zeke’s the first of Zeke’s kind, so it would be fitting if Zeke’s pronoun were Zeke’s own name.

Those are not the rules of english grammar. They’re the rules written by prescriptive grammarians funded during the suffragette era. English grammar uses gendered language for thousands of things that aren’t humans. Animals are almost always gendered, not ‘it’. The singular they has been common english usage when gender is unknown or unspecified for centuries. It’s in every major english author’s writings in some form. And this has been documented and proven countless times, so it’s hard to believe that you don’t know this and you’re repeating the lies out of ignorance and not malice.

Zeke identifies as they/them … and “it” is an impersonal pronoun in English which – unless someone EXPLICITLY requests for themselves – is therefore depersonalising, objectifying and demeaning to use for others who don’t use it. Don’t be that guy, DontBeThatGuy!

This whole thread is a bit ridiculous. I think it is reasonable that Digi is trying to express joy over ZK being alive. DontBeThatGuy is making a valid point about ZK being nonbinary. If he (or she) got the pronoun wrong, I doubt that it was intentional or malicious. I am not a keyboard warrior, and as a rule stay out of conversations like this. However, if someone is attacked and disregarded simply because he (or she) made a mistake (honest or otherwise) there is little hope for our society.

But nonbinary people don’t use the pronoun “it” as a general rule. Some people do, I know one or two who either do now or have in the past. But /outside of those exceptions/ the pronoun “it” is both depersonalising since it’s used mostly within English for inanimate objects and is also /very/ frequently used to directly attack and demean nonbinary and trans people by their foes. Both innate meaning and social context thus render “it” absolutely awful to use for anybody who doesn’t explicitly ask for that pronoun.

I don’t even think people are saying “you must view them with all the associations as the pronoun provides” (example:. Woman would wear dresses, make-up, and wear certain hair styles).

What I find interesting is that Scott and Ethan are arguing from very different places, and not the places you’d think they’d be arguing from. Scott sounds like he’s making a coldly logical decision, to Ethan’s emotionally-charged protest, but Ethan is actually making very rational, point by point attacks, using evidence, while Scott is falling back on ‘They’re Bad, we’re Good, I had to Protect Us From The Bad’ – heavily emotionally charged and relying on tribal ‘us vs them’ thinking. Bringing up Carlie hurt Scott, so now he’s retreating behind that very same thinking – “You are against me,… Read more »

Interesting. I wonder what led to ZK being able to not immediately die after the explosion. The Weebmaster’s miscalculation? ZK taking some precautions in advance? Scott’s fiddling with the kill switch? Random chance, since it’s not always possible to accurately predict the results of a given explosion?

My best bet would be Weebmaster miscalculating. It would make sense for him to try and go for the weakest possible explosive, both to prevent collateral damage (you don’t want to blow yourself up when detonating a robot that’s strangling you, for example) and to save on repair costs when rebuilding his tool afterwards. And as you pointed out, it’s pretty hard to accurately predict exactly how much explosive you’d need to incapacitate a robot without damaging it (too much), so it’s not that strange for him to have missed the mark. ZK having precautions would feel weird to me.… Read more »

Maybe the explosive was a shaped charge like a claymore mine. It had a sign, “This side towards the enemy” and the Weeb just installed it upside down. Still did enough damage to at least temporarily disable his motor functions but most of the explosive force blew outward instead of in.

Let’s not forget that Zeke recently (minutes or hours earlier) witnessed Ethan respawn – which is almost exactly what Zeke just did. I believe that once this is sorted out Lucas, and possibly Scott, will see the new connection that Zeke and Ethan have. I also think that Zeke will have a new appreciation for life and what could possibly happen if an entire race is eliminated – since his entire race was just killed…. Then respawned.

Kenju

It would be ironic if the reason ZK is still alive is because of the earlier replacement of his casing after Ethan accidently cracked it. Either the explosive shifted so that it didn’t go off where it was intended to, or they simply used a less cheap material that absorbed the explosion better.

Of course it is also possible the explosion was never intended to kill ZK but to disable him. That would be the cheapest and easiest way to handle him in the event he went rogue. Cause as little damage that has to be repaired as possible.

Scott theorized that ZK couldn’t upload themself to the Internet due to wifi upload speeds, and that their program would be corrupted by the time it was done. If Zeke’s got an SSD, it can handle far faster speeds, so I assume they might’ve got around that limitation by duplicating their code entirely, keeping the code inactive (sort of like a ‘save state’), and uploading the duplicate. That way, there was a backup if they ever needed it.

For all we know, Zeke’s body is essentially dead, and they’re cloud computing back into it to communicate.

Ugh.. and this is why I use M.2 NVME: Fast reboot! Looks like The Master cheaped out with an old 2.5″ HDD when he built Zeke.

I get the feeling Zeke is yanking their chain with the why.

“Why” do you keep using “they”. There’s only one of him. He wasn’t blown into a pile of funko figures or anything. Is his torso actually three nintendos in a t-shirt? Maybe if Zeke’s head was separated down the middle, you could use “they”. Maybe if Zeke even had different User accounts in the same brain, or some form of schizophrenia. But otherwise you have to stick to the rule of one head- one person.

To quote Merriam-Webster:

… The use of they, their, them, and themselves as pronouns of indefinite gender and indefinite number is well established in speech and writing, even in literary and formal contexts. In recent years, these pronouns have also been adopted by individuals whose gender identity is nonbinary…

It’s alive!!! My favourite bot dood is back! I actually wonder what Zeke is referring to when they say “why?”
It’s bone chilling to say the least. Hope they’re just joshing and they heard the whole thing.
