The Fake Baby Fad 13

Posted by samzenpus
from the get-a-pet dept.
An increasing number of childless women are taking fake babies to the park, out to eat, and even hosting birthday parties for them. Forty-nine-year-old Linda is married with no children of her own. Now, she says she feels like a mother because she has Reborns -- dolls made to look and feel like the real thing. Women interested in this "hobby" can spend a few hundred bucks to over a thousand on the faux infants. The owner of Reborn, Lachelle Moore, offers this unintentionally chilling line, "What's so wonderful about Reborns is that, um, they're forever babies."

    If this is not a joke, it's got to be one of the saddest things I've ever heard.

    Unless a woman gets one of these and after lugging it around for a while realizes that she hates being a mother.


    She leaves one at the park, backs over it with the car or some other stupid "bad parent" move, saving a real child from that fate.

The number of arguments is unimportant unless some of them are correct. -- Ralph Hartley
