... this is wrong. just plain wrong.

"What's so wonderful about Reborns [fake babies] is that...there's no college tuition, no dirty diapers... just the good part of motherhood..."

So it's like motherhood porn, where babies become the target of objectification.

While I can't speak for motherhood, the best part of fatherhood is actually being dad. As dad, I get to experience all the different stages that my daughter is progressing through as she grows-up. Each stage has its own special wonder about it. Parenthood, like anything else, has its ups and downs; but it provides rewards that only parents will ever truly know.

An overpriced, eerily realistic doll cannot give someone the experience of parenthood (good or bad) any more than getting fit, learning close-order drill, becoming a good marksman, and buying a USMC t-shirt will give someone the experience of being a Marine.

There is something very disturbing about grown women (and, I'm sure in some circles, grown men) purchasing and playing with these dolls.
