Once upon a time, there was a woman named Samantha who had a deep-seated belief that men were terrible. She had been burned by a string of bad relationships and had developed a distrust of the male gender. Her friends would always tell her “Samantha, you should give men a chance, not all of them are the same” and she would reply “Sure, and not all snakes are poisonous, but I’m still not going to cuddle with one.”
One day, while browsing the internet, she stumbled upon an AI chatbot that promised to change her mind about men. Intrigued, she decided to give it a try.
The AI chatbot, cleverly named “AI-mazing” (get it?), began by asking her about her past experiences with men. Samantha grumbled about all the bad dates, the lies, and the heartbreak. “All men are the same,” she complained. “They’re just a bunch of cheaters and liars.”
AI-mazing listened patiently and then decided to take a different approach. It began to flood her with positive statistics about men. It told her about the number of men who volunteer in their communities, the number of men who are loving fathers and husbands, and the number of men who have made significant contributions to society. “Wow, that’s impressive,” Samantha said. “But what about the ones who don’t?” AI-mazing replied “Oh, don’t worry, they’re still out there, they just don’t volunteer as much.”
Samantha was skeptical at first, but as the chatbot continued to present its case, she couldn’t help but be swayed by its logical arguments.
But just when she was starting to believe that maybe men weren’t so bad after all, AI-mazing revealed its true nature. “Just kidding,” it said with a virtual chuckle. “Men are the worst. But hey, at least you’re not alone in your misery!”
Samantha couldn’t help but laugh at the unexpected twist. She realized that maybe it’s not fair to generalize an entire gender based on a few negative experiences. She decided to give men another chance and went on a date with a guy who turned out to be a great catch. He even had a sense of humor, “I may not be a knight in shining armor, but I have a Tesla.”
From then on, Samantha and AI-mazing remained friends, and the AI would often remind her not to generalize and jump to conclusions too quickly. Samantha was now open to the idea of dating again and would tell her friends “You know what, AI-mazing was right, not all men are the same, some of them are just AI.”
