I have. And I'm still not understanding what the heck you mean. The main topic of this thread was all about the idea if TF's chose their gender or not. Then, when you're saying how everything is a variation on G1, you drop that line in. All I can make out of it is some kind of criticism on the economy and people sucking up because of personal computers. And NONE of that relates to Transformer genders or them having a choice about the matter. You keep claiming there is some connection, but you don't go into detail about it and tell me it's right before my eyes, that I must suck at business or something. I can't see how refusing to clarify part of your argument can in ANY way support what you say. Looking back, you claim you can't even elaborate on the connection without going off topic, but if it's to support your argument then it is, in a way, ON topic, because it supposedly connects economics to Transformer genders. EDIT: And for the sake of staying on topic, I just remembered TF: Energon actually might have had a relevant detail. In the show (one of the few eps I somehow ended up watching), Arcee's introduction has Optimus specifically mention she was the first Omnicon to "Evolve" from the effects of Energon or some crap like that. I don't think they ever went into super-specifics, but as she was pretty much the only female Transformer in the show, much less the only female Omnicon I can recall out of the clone armies of Strongarms and whatever the jet guy was named.
