    Yeah at the moment Arcee is the only one that touches on transgender issues really. The problem was the female spark idea could very easily start heading down the path that gender (as opposed to sex) is purely biological rather than something that usually has biological anchors but not necessarily (transgender people). Like I said the idea of a feminine spark in most fembots isn't a bad thing, the trouble would come if writers inadvertently implied or said that ONLY fembots with that spark can be fembots.

    (if anyone transgender person reads this I hope I'm explaining it correctly and if not I apologize)

    Sure, for humans gender is a cultural construct with a biological basis but even for us it's a lot more complex than men and women being born different. For sexless Transformers though there doesn't necessarily have to be. There was nothing wrong with the idea of feminine spark as I said but it was moving into potentially dangerous waters and could have led to some unintentionally transphobic elements so I think Roberts was smart to play it safe and retcon it.

    I think it could have been positive, there is nothing inherently wrong with the idea that some fembots have a distinct spark type. The trouble would be if you had ALL fembots have it and create a physical difference between TF genders. It's a complicated issue that begins to touch on transgender issues and all sorts of things so I do think Roberts made the right choice to just say there is no 'biological' difference between them.
