    Primus created the Transformers. At first they were genderless but he added genders to give them more individuality. However, not many femmes are seen due to various reasons that can be easily explained but I don't feel like mentioning those as to avoid an argument.

    Jhiaxus, wanting to study the origin of genders in his race, and the fact that he's a closet pervert, abducts Arcee and experiments on him/her. However, Jhiaxus' experiments backfire and Arcee turns into the psycho femme that only Whirl can love.

    Caminus, possibly being a closet pervert or an insanely protective father figure, creates a planet and sticks all the femmes but one on it for either his perversions or their protection. He also makes a majority of transformers believe that femmes don't exist for his own personal agendas.

    What do you guys think. Possible? A good theory? Bad?

    This 'theory' flat-out contradicts what we're told about the female Camiens in Windblade.

    They began springing forth from Caminus' hotspot after he left Cybertron. He didn't spirit away a bunch of pre-existing Cybertronian women.

    Personally, I'm of the opinion Primus didn't really create the TFs in IDW, but that's neither here nor there >_>

    Did you need to include Caminus as a possible pervert? It would essentially turn ALL of the femmebots in the universe into victims because of their gender. To me (and likely others) that is a deeply disturbing and backwards proposition.

    I LIKE the fact that we don't know how Cybertronian life came to be. Could it be Primus? Unicron? Evolution? Quints?...Vector Sigma? Knowing the definitive answer would ruin a lot of potential stories.

    Yeah I really like the whole religion angle IDW has going on and IMO it would be kind of dumb to piss it away by going "YEP robit god definitely exists and a cityformer took all the robit wimminz cuz he's kind of a pervert"

    In the context of what the OP was using it, what does pervert mean?

    Where's the "it's based on a boy's toy line and we didn't think pink would sell" option?
