Why Are Baby Dolls So Evil?

What the heck is it about baby dolls that makes people cringe? I know it's human nature to look at something that has a face and categorize it. We see a baby doll, we think baby. What do you think when you think baby? Crying, pooping, delicate if dropped.

Someone gave me a baby doll when I was little and I promptly buried it in our pet cemetery over the septic tank.

It's the pretty and pleasant looking ones that most bother me. They remind me of prissy girls in school who are know-it-all's and told-you-so's. I just want to turn their heads around so they aren't giving me that fake smile all the time!

The really strange thing about baby dolls is that time shows on their features just like on humans. Makes you wonder, huh?

Perhaps this doll below is the best reason to be very wary of baby dolls. The really realistic ones are just freaking sick!


  1. Studies have shown that the closer something gets to looking human (while still falling short), the less we like it. This is why most people have a gut negative reaction to those Japanese robots that look human. I don't think scientists fully understand the mechanism at work, but there does seem to be a lot of evidence pointing in this direction. We don't trust stuff that looks like us until it actually LOOKS like us. Falling short, as dolls are wont to do, turns a great many people off.
