Uncanny valley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The "Uncanny Valley" is a theory that when a simulacrum of human behavior gets "close", but "not quite there", it evokes a revulsion response. Thus if say the CGI in a movie gets "almost" to making you believe that you are watching a human, it might be better off being a little LESS realistic!
My theory is that this is the problem with Hildebeast -- sometimes she seems almost human, but then the revulsion hits!
It's a worthy wiki article -- there are lots of cases that they can come in, robots are just one. Men trying to come off and women coming off as men, or gay "marriage" for that matter can cause our brains to flow into this valley -- even if the person is totally dedicated to being the most left wing trans / gay / whatever "open mind". That "open mind" still runs on human mushware, and that mushware had either a REALLY sophisticated designer (God), or a REALLY long development cycle (billions of years of evolution). Making "decisions" with the top-most functions of the brain about what the "old iron" ought to do isn't going to cut it.
Close STILL only counts in Horseshoes and Hand-grenades -- and in this case, missing by a little is actually WORSE.
