Of course our personal assistants are predominantly women’s voices. If you pay attention to the world of academics, technologists and feminists you will get a bunch of garbled meaningless explanations for this phenomenon.
As my regular readers know, I am willing to speak facts to popular mythology. I tell the truth about black crime rate, very high, Obama’s innumeracy because he is half-black and has the black American cultural baggage most blacks carry.
I talk about the horrors of modern feminism and its debilitating effect on modern commerce and the American society.
I want to explain why Siri, Alexa and Google Voice are female. I did research on this using multidimensional scaling with real humans and no reliance on language or questionnaires.
It is simple: men enter all rooms with strangers and look for danger, implicit threat. Men are potential threats to men and women are not. Women enter rooms and see other women as competition for the men. 'Threat' is an order of magnitude worse than 'competition'.
This is true of men and women as defined by their physiology before sex change surgery. I have not done research on people who have changed their physiology. No one has.
Therefore our electronic assistants need to have women’s voices. The women’s voice is not a threat to our reptilian brain.
I can go one step further, based on watching the response of Americans to the dialect of foreigners who speak good English. The most American accent is a slight Texas drawl much like we used to get when the pilot was speaking to passengers over the PA system on an airplane. If a man has a slight Texas drawl he is considered more honest, more competent and more friendly.
Now you can go back to the regular world of lies, mythology and people telling the king how lovely his clothes are.
