I sometimes read the stupid snark groups, and you're not the only one who finds comfort in the thought of being pregnant. I do it too. We're striving to one day have enough saved to have in vitro, want it so desperately, and it's annoying that we're instead putting money into the welfare systems for idiots like that.
I sometimes pretend I'm cradling a baby, and have a baby doll, and I just try to imagine what I might not get to have.
Anyway, it's not creepy to find it comforting to imagine/pretend to be pregnant.

oh god, mental instability is genetically inherited, please do not encourage this sack of crazy to fucking reproduce, thanks
First, it's stupid to presume you know who is stable and who is not, who is actually intelligent and who is not, based on LiveJournal posting.
Second, if someone can, and will, properly take care of a child instead of having other children raise them (I'm looking at the damned Duggars), then I will not discourage someone who wants children from reproducing.
If you're referring to pretending to be pregnant and finding comfort in it, there is nothing wrong with a bit of make-believe. It's not much different than dreaming about something.
Also, why don't you sign in and post and own up to what you say rather than being a wuss and doing so anonymously. If you believe she shouldn't reproduce, own up to it and don't hide like a coward.

I'm not the original commenter, but if I actually had a LiveJournal, I'd be doing this while I was logged in. First, you're actually more likely to get an accurate judgment of someone's stability on their LiveJournal than you are in normal conversation. That is why in many court cases involving mental instability, journals are brought in as evidence. It's a candid situation. It's them recording their feelings. It's their raw brain juice, basically. Secondly, someone being charged with stalking who spends all their time posting about their life's issues on a gossip journal is really not at all fit to care for a child. And as for pretending to be pregnant, dear, that's really not very mentally stable, either. And you know it. You know if you were in a grocery store and you saw someone with a basketball under their shirt or with a carseat or stroller with a fake baby in it, you'd be repulsed. Don't even lie.
In short, sit the fuck down. You have just been owned.
Is there a way to disable anon commnts here?
pretending to be pregnant or care for a baby doll in the privacy of your own home is VASTLY different then going out in public with a basketball under your shirt accouncing "im pregnant". What people do in their own home on their own time is their own business.
But I would like to point I still havent been charged. and since Im leaving the situation alone I dont think I will be. Me and my psych went over the legalities and penal codes and the best they could get would be a harrassment charge for too many phone calls but not stalking.
I have mine set so comments are allowed by registered users an screening is for anyone not on my friends list. And just because CAPTCHAs are annoying, those are also set for anyone not on my friends list. And I IP log everybody.
So now nobody anonymous can comment and my friends' comments show automatically, but all others I must approve.
Don't worry about stalking. People on LJ could learn a thing or two. Some of then stalk me routinely. And you wanna talk phone stalking? A friend's ex was calling him 250 times PER DAY, and his caller ID proved it. No charges, only a restraining order that she was not to call again. Now if she violates that, then charges. But it's not worth the court's time to deal with phone calls.
Let me show you how owning works by telling you some of the many ways you are completely wrong.
Journals are used as evidence with several other factors. Journals are not in and of themselves proof of mental stability or instability. Further, private journals are evidence of a person's "raw brain juice," not a journal written for public viewing.
According to your thoughts, anyone in the public spotlight isn't fit to be a parent. They are in gossip journals all the time on a much larger scale that LiveJournal.
How is pretending to be pregnant in the privacy of your own home different from two adults deciding to role play? She was talking about the privacy of home, not in the grocery store.
YOU have been owned.
