↓ TranscriptPanel 1:
Chloe: PooPal, why is the Mars Curiosity Rover is a she?
PooPal: I suppose because NASA knows that we shouldn't fall into the trap of assigning male gender to all genderless things. And women need more role models in science.
Chloe: So should we say that you're a she?
PooPal: Well, that WOULD combat the "men are generic, women are special" trope.
Panel 3: Chloe puts on a pink bow on PooPal's heads.
Chloe: Great! You're a she!
PooPal: No, no. Putting a bow on my goes back to reinforcing that "women are special."
Chloe: Oh. Oops. (looking embarrassed) Can you open up? I gotta go.
PooPal: (dejected) Maybe I should go genderless. No one wants role models in the area of poo-cleanup.
