How many things are wrong with this comic about love?

Recommended Posts

I normally really like SMBC (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal), but today's comic: http://smbc-comics.com/comic/machine-love both implies that romantic love is intrinsic to humans, AND that sex = romance.... 

Or am I just thinking too hard?

No, I totally see what you're saying, and that's really irritating.

Apparently love is 90% about sex, yikes. You're not in wrong for thinking that. Guess we aromantics are robots after all...

Come on, only 90% of it (crying inside).

I suppose it was supposed to be a jokes about how couples are in fact about sex more than romance,  but i came out wrong and really this is bad. Aro are robots, sex is part of romance, and romantic love needs a lot of sex (90% exactly, so asexual romantic relationships are have only 10% of romance I guess). I didn't know you can put this much of amatonormativity in a few lines.
