Princess Vespa: What's going on?
Dot Matrix: It's either the 4th of July, or someone's trying to kill us!

I think that's the only exchange that doesn't directly concern a man.

Dot and the Princess have at least one more exchange that doesn't concern a man. From the same set:

Vespa: We've stopped moving!
Dot: Oh, no. We're still moving. Backwards!

I don't buy that Dot is a woman.

I think the rating is sound. Dot Matrix is female-presenting, her body presented by one female actress and her voice presented by another female actress. She counts every bit as much as Smurfette counts in the Smurfs movies.
