A representative from the Union of Droids has just release this statement:

" We are Droids, not robots, we have feelings too!" Slogans like, " Even a droid can do it!" is demeaning. Thank you for your continued support."

Did you see the slogans that didn't make it to the bumper stickers?

If you prick us, do we not bleed oil?
We need to bathe or we will smell like a family of Jawa's too!!
You try going between electro couplings and see if your tongue doesn't go numb.

Ok why do droids react to pain.  It is simple.  The makers made them sentient beings, meaning the are aware of themselves and their surroundings.  This self awareness also has a sense of self preservation.  The same reason why you jump back when you touch a hot plate.  Your body and mind are trying to save your ass hand.

So in other words "They are so they react."  >:D

Brother here said it all. preservation, autoprotection. That explains.. Just like robosapien when touches something with any hand sensor, he goes OUCH! because its programed in him.
