Dolls; creepy?

I love using dolls to make things, to me dolls represent me, they are a mini me that i can use to process a feeling.

Even my closest friends find my love of dolls “creepy” Im not offended, but I am confused. What is it about dolls that people find creepy? Is it the same sort of creepy as posters, that unblinking following you with their eyes kind of creepy?

Id appreciate opinions on dolls because id like to understand what other people automatically think of when they see a doll. Im not intending to take this research and rework my art to suit others, I just want to understand because right now I feel a little out of the loop.

    I don’t find dolls creepy, I think people just associate them with Chucky and things like that because humans make those kinds of comections. But your love of dolls is unique to you and it’s why I love it, your dolls aren’t creepy they’re a you thing. Keeping loving the dolls and loving the process because it is you and you have nothing to apologise for.
