Ok, ran the whole thing through a spelling and grammar check, though it didn't find that many grammatical errors.
So yeah, I am aware that men that were born female can have ovaries, I remember that case from a dude in china who actually got pregnant because of it, what I meant with "Trans-dudes" are men, that are transitioning to become females and those women who were born male, are not able to ovulate, since (as far as my research went) there haven't been any successful uterus transplantation so far.
Now the other thing about that point is, since men who were born female (afaik) only have the male set of genitalia, so I can't imagine a way for a man, who does not possess any surgical equipment, to impregnate the womb, without the whole ordeal getting rather gory.
Now to the aphrodisiac thing…
Only one of the two automatons is releasing the pheromones and he doesn't "end up having to physically force sex anyway", he is the one being forced.
He is the one reluctant to mate and the pheromones make the women the aggressor, this is also why…
"those women report an immense sense of guilt afterwards"
The thing is that both of them are prototypes.
that is the reason I'm here. It is a test and a competition.
They are two different models, to see wich method is more effective.
Now to a part of your post that I didn't fully understand:
"Okay, that technically explains why they're described as being conventionally attractive, but the lack of elaboration on the point is throwing away whatever narrative value a concept like this could potentially have."
Are you saying I should elaborate more on how they are attractive?
Well anyway, thank you for the criticism and I hope you respond sooner than later :)
