Maureen O'Connor Eccentric Gay Gadabouts Think Toy Doll Is Their SonUntil today, I was impervious to iPad newspaper The Daily's slow dance of tabloid seduction. Oldest dog in America? Whatever. Stripper psychologist? Ho-hum. But today, everything changed. Today I read "Guys and Doll," a feature by Michelle Ruiz about an eccentric gay couple that has spent the last 20 years pretending a baby doll named Digby is their son, and I am now The Daily's biggest fan:
Mark Kirby and A.J. Sapolnick raised their 20-year-old son Digby on a series of fantastic voyagesriding camels in the Canary Islands, mingling with monks in Myanmar and glacier-gazing in Antarctica.
"Here he is on his first cruiseto Tahiti," Kirby said proudly, lingering over Digby's baby album in the couple's New York apartment. "Eartha Kitt was on board."
Digby has a Louis Vuitton baby bag and a Cartier watch. He had a bar mitzvah. In the words of Jezebel's Sadie Steinwho has, on occasion, matched outfits with a large doll that she carried to fashion events"That's some Lord Tod Wadley shit."
The duo decided to become a trio after their straight friends starting changing shape. Spontaneous dinner dates were dashed by sniffing toddlers and flighty babysitters. Gay people were just beginning to adopt, Kirby recalled, but the couple agreed they didn't want a human baby.
"We didn't want to have to change our lifestyle," he said. "So we came up with the idea of having an inanimate baby."
In the words of Gawker's Brian Moylana mustachioed gay New Yorker who does not have a baby doll for a son"Gays are just as weird as everyone else."

does anyone think they are sane??
Homosexuality is a symptom of broader mental troubles.
The doll actually really resembles the one on the left. Is he the “mother”?
>”We didn’t want to have to change our lifestyle,” he said. “So we came up with the idea of having an inanimate baby.”
Yeah, you tell em...freaks.
It doesn’t complain to the cops. I am sure it has a stretched orifice somewhere.
I guess it could be worse..way worse, but we wont go there. At least these two were sane enough to realize the commitment of a real child and opted for a faux-baby. If there happy and harmless then I am happy for them. Even if it is a little strange
Something tells me that Digby has ... um, seen some dark dirty places.
When are they going to enroll their “child” in school? This would make a great sit-com.
Wonder what the Church Lady would say about this?
Google “reborn babies.” There are women who pay over a thousand dollars for these re-painted, re-haired, very realistic dolls, and some of them treat them like real babies.
At least with these two men, the doll is an obvious doll and a joke, an excuse for a party.
Did Mel Brooks write this?
