>concerned that I will get arrested by the cops and they will impound my waifu
And you should. For that reason some caution will be necessary. Dependent on the place, especially men which can't recreate her and don't have a good backup stored outside of their home, should be very careful. Not sure if it would be more dangerous at the beginning or as soon as the media takes notice. Might also depend a lot on the country.
We would need and should try to push for laws, which protect objects like intelligent robots with the argument that they have a special emotional value to the owner. Same for ones which are being used for caretaking of any kind.
>People's Republic of China ... makes the manufacture of sexdolls a crime
Interesting. Though, they do have a lot of single men which can't find a woman. Then again, Chinese parents can be very upset about their children not having any offspring, and the government wants to increase the birth rate. There are many videos about the pressure on Chinese men or both sexes to have more children, and trying to get foreign women. Examples:
(a bit long, in German with subs in English)
Btw, China alone needs 33 mio women, India and maybe other countries having similar problems.
>feminists who are true to their cause
Different ones might interpret that differently and they might not have a problem to take a position to be close to the "anti-degeneracy" conservatives or "human-dignity" leftists, if it fits their interest. Take into account that what they're doing is also about money, political interests, personal feelings, jobs, grants, attention, and so on.
They will change their ideology if it fits them.
>conservatism can be equally oppressive to the goal here
Yes, I found some very nasty conservatives on social media which would like to go after everything they consider to be degenerate, and at least tend to fantasize about violence from time to time.
Australia also has very agressive laws against the import of anything that could be inappropriate in their eyes, especially if they can frame it as looking like a minor. So a lot of hentai related things. They want to put people in prison for importing stuff like that.
>places in the USA where any sexual device is criminal to possess
Assuming that I'm informed correctly, states in the US can have laws which are not valid because a federal law renders them irrelevant. In that case, I've read about that being the case. It would be against free trade within the US, so it's not valid. Not sure about the details. Britain on the other hand has a law against obscenity, which they used already against guys using sexdolls looking somewhat like children, to put at least one in prison, and tried to use it against a company importing any sexdoll.
>No one wants them around.
Not the same anon, just want to point out that I don't care. More importantly, this is about arguing and estimating how many people might be okay with robowaifus existing, not about if one is okay with their reasons or not. Bisexual women might be a big factor in this, since there are many of them, and growing: https://youtu.be/qeYts4AzRUo
