I know some people find “baby wigs” funny and harmless, but I find them utterly disturbing. In my view, putting a wig on a baby either (a) sexualizes the child; or (b) functions as a type of minstrelsy (coincidence that three out of four wigs shown above are meant to mimic hairstyles of black performers?), or both. Yuck. Children are not dolls or playthings.
