    I always figured that the Quints had a fetish for "Sex Bots" created them male and female for their own entertainment ..LMAO!!!! (Just Kidding,even though that WOULD be funny)

    Children of Primus....I am nothing more than a humble teacher to his will. It was known to primus that his creations where strong but like all things Strength is not everything that some times a whole is better then half. Primus gave to us the gift of female sisters so that we may have a way to keep going. If the Well of All Spark or Vector Sigma failed. So it would be in this humble teachers logic that the female have of our race was created for the procration. To continue the line of primus.

    You haven't read Spotlight: Arcee from IDW have you? Jhiaxus gives Arcee a sex change (implying that she was "male" before his experimentation). It specifically states that he had introduced the concept of gender to their species where none existed before. So that wraps it up for the current IDW-verse.

    As for other continuities, I would say they're created that way.

    Pretty much the thread's been covered. There still exists more to reinforce this idea that the fiction has more to explain and offer.
    I so hope you're not suggest LARPing... Last time I knew someone that LARPed... Oh Primus help me from going into detail...

    I wouldn't put it past them. They have tentacles - that automatically makes them colossal perverts.

    I will make this as simple as possible for you...

    There. Is. No. Answer.

    Constantly repeating the question will not get you one. All you are getting are opinions and it seems you've made yours already and only looking for people to agree with you at this point.

    You know, I can't say much about other characters outside of the G1 cartoon and comic series... However since Arcee is being used as an example, there's no denying she is a fembot or female if you will and was intended to be female. One episode in mind proves my point, in "Only Human" when Rodimus, Ultra Magnus, Springer, and Arcee have their minds transferred to human bodies, Arcee is in a female body... Bottom line, it all falls on the writers and it seems they meant for Arcee to be a fembot/female, whether she chose it or it was predetermined remains to be seen but I wouldn't say Transformers as a race is genderless as I think gender is defined by more than physical appearance.

    No, not really. I am not a popular type of guy. I don't get off on having everyone agree with me. Just interesting to me to know what you all think.

    There is no factual answer. It is an opinion poll. I reiterated the question simply because a few had took it way off course.

    I would say in modern transformers lore gender is a combination of spark and protoform. The spark has a "subconcious" desired form but the protoform has its own "will" when a cybertronian is born. That's my fannon.

    No, no, I have read it - that particular notion of the "sex change" that I was proposing was specifically referring to continuities where the gender-divide is naturally-occurring. By which I mean, the Transformer self-identifies from the moment of creation as "male" or "female" and modifies their body to reflect that if it does not already, rather than have a gender forced upon them where they perceived themselves as not having one originally as with Arcee and Jhiaxus.

    But I am positing this hypothetical scenario as a comparatively rare event, a quirk of "biology" that the Transformer attempts to correct through "surgery", as it is with human begins who undergo sex changes, rather than something that *every* Cybertronian decides for themselves the way the OP is suggesting they might.

    Interesting.... on straight opinion I would say that they were not created female and instead took on the female characteristic later. But it's a tough call based on looking at the G1 S3 episode where Autobots went into the distant past and met with "A3". One of A3's associates was clearly of female characteristic and must have been created that way. That being the claim that the Quintessons had 'created' the existing generation before winning their independence.

    Then again, it follows based on which fiction you get your perception. I'm evidently influenced more by the G1 cartoon rather than the comics or Hasbro character bios.

    Agree. G1 is the basis by which all other fiction is based. What happened in any other continuity is just a manipulation of the original. A variant, but not the real deal. And in G1 it is heavily implied that each TF was created individually to mirror our own beliefs. Of course, this was before the PC world of today, where you have to try to please everyone for the good of the almighty dollar.

    If you don't see the connection then I will not waste time trying to explain it. Think about it.

    Oh ok. I just thought I'd ask since the IDW thing was pretty close but in reverse. Man, that story was messed up.
