Japanese roboticist Masahiro Mori described a phenomena called “the uncanny valley”. As a robot approaches human in appearance and behaviour, it becomes more relatable and lovable. But at some point as it gets closer and closer to looking and acting human, it starts to become… well, eerie and disturbing. Almost right but still slightly wrong.
It becomes creepy. Even a creep.
This all begs the question, what is the standard of “human” that we’re judging so-called creeps by? Who got to set this standard?
The answer is that women do. Women decide what is and is not creepy and by extension what is and is not human.
But if women have taken it upon themselves to be the arbiters of what is and isn’t human, isn’t that itself… sorta creepy?
Join Karen Straughan(Girl Writes What), Alison Tieman(Typhonblue) and Della Burton(Oneiorosgrip) for this week’s topic of HBR, “How to be a Creep.”

Once again this is a culture-specific form of female privilege, the unassailable right to brand anyone creepy at a whim, all vested in women, all aimed at men.
Where are all the creepy women of folktales that used to be standards? Whatever happened to the wicked steopmothers and witches living alone in deserted places?
My personla favorite is the Russian Baba Yaga, a hag who lives in a cabin mounted on chicken legs, scouring the countryside flying around in her morater looking for children to grind thier bones.
