The 1964 TV series My Living Doll features a robot, portrayed by Julie Newmar, who is similarly described.More recently, the 2015 science-fiction film Ex Machina featured a genius inventor experimenting with gynoids in an effort to create the perfect companion.In science fiction, female-appearing robots are often produced for use as domestic servants and sexual slaves, as seen in the film Westworld, Paul J.Mc Auley's novel Fairyland (1995), and Lester del Rey's short story "Helen O'Loy" (1938), Examples include Hephaestus in the Iliad who created female servants of metal, and Ilmarinen in the Kalevala who created an artificial wife.A gynoid (or fembot) is a humanoid robot that is gendered feminine.Gynoids appear widely in science fiction film and art.Not only did the servo motor and platform have to be ‘interiorized’ (naizosuru), but the body [of the fembot] needed to be slender, both extremely difficult undertakings.
In 1983, a busty female robot named "Sweetheart" was removed from a display at the Lawrence Hall of Science after a petition was presented claiming it was insulting to women.
The first gynoid in film, the maschinenmensch ("machine-human"), also called "Parody", "Futura", "Robotrix", or the "Maria impersonator", in Fritz Lang's Metropolis is also an example: a femininely shaped robot is given skin so that she is not known to be a robot and successfully impersonates the imprisoned Maria and works convincingly as an exotic dancer.
They fought in two multi-part episodes of the series: "Kill Oscar" and "Fembots in Las Vegas", and despite the feminine prefix, there were also male versions, including some designed to impersonate particular individuals for the purpose of infiltration.
Fiction about gynoids or female cyborgs reinforce essentialist ideas of femininity, according to Margret Grebowicz.
Such essentialist ideas may present as sexual or gender stereotypes.
