A) When you're constructing a robot, waste of material for example.
I'd argue all androids are inefficient users of material. The choice to construct a robot like a humanoid is aesthetic to begin with.
And indeed, mimicking the proportions and build of a typical woman would entail using less material than mimicking the proportions and build of a typical man -- let alone the kind of big, muscular man that cartoon and movie robots are more often modeled on.
