People have talked for years about the Uncanny Valley, and how the closer human facsimiles come to real life, the more revolting they are to humans. But no one has ever talked about the Sexy Librarian Valley, and how the closer human facsimiles come to looking like a sexy librarian the more confusing they are to humans. You don’t know whether you want to befriend her, date her, or lower her on a crane into a vat of molten metal at Cyberdyne Systems.
