It's all a bit silly in my opinion.

The arcee spotlight was an interesting enough take on the idea. Not perfect but I never saw it as something offensive. If you wander down the road of robot gender than it kinda makes a mess of Roberts relationships angle for Domey and Rewind. If i was doing it, I would have female, male and animal shapes for the cybertronians as something they have adapted from other cultures but have it as no real indication of gender, merely another part of the robots personality.

If you start mixing gender in then where do the animals fit in? And if they can be anything why stop at 2 genders - give them five!

As I see it, it should really be just shapes as an extension of the characters personality. Male shape, female shape, rat bat shape - just another aspect.
