    I wasn't going to buy back into this thread as it's gone south, but I wanted to point out that there is a huge space in between being nasty to a member on here that has reached out for support and advice, and discussing a provocative celebrity like Greko. I'm quite sensitive about the topic of m/c myself but I didn't take offence. People are saying they believe she is faking the pg and will then fake a m/c. If that is the case, than it's her being offensive about a sensitive topic.

    Delirium you know I respect you a lot.

    But I disagree. Just because she is celebrity who loves to show the world her body doesn't make her less of a person. She still has feelings.

    Just because I choose to be traditional stay home mum doesn't make me better than a porn star or s3x worker or someone that is famous for dating a gross old man or even the checkout chick down the road. We all have different morals and values. We all live very different lives and walk different paths. I choose to publicly announce my pregnancies from the time 2 lines appear. If someone I know or over the Internet said that about me for dam straight I would be hurt. A hell of a lot more than if the talked about my big as or the fact I choose to show my assets so to speak.

    I suppose my point is. This girl lives here in Australia and is likely to Google her name and pregnancy related stuff. She is just as likely to Google a Australian pregnancy forum as any of us to get support and advice. Let's face it our first pregnancies are a sharp learning curve.

    What is the other thread?

    I didn't know who she was until I saw a quick snippet of her and Hubby on TV.

    I'm not sure what's going on, nor do I care but I'm finding the discussion about judgement interesting.

    I'm a judgmental person by nature, in fact we all are. No one can say they aren't judgmental, the key is to know if, when and how to express our judgements/opinions in a way that's not going to cause grief and upset to anyone else.

    This is s perfect example of two people who have the same information and draw different conclusions, but because I happen to not see her as a victim, I'm the one who's written off as judgmental. If this is how some people see her, then fine; I don't share that view. It doesn't make me wrong. Not all young women who are with rich, old men are victims. I actually see GG as someone who has an enormous amount of power in the form of her sexuality. I think she uses it to be famous and to lure pathetic old men like Geoffrey. I really couldn't care less that she does, but I don't see her as his victim. I think they offer each other a mutually beneficial relationship in their eyes.
    And yes, it's all conjecture and speculation, as is the opinion that she's a poor little rich girl.

    Disclaimer: before anyone accuses me of being sexist or misogynistic or cold hearted or anti feminism, rest assured I am none of these. But yeah, I'll judge someone who uses the media to sell herself and do whatever it takes to be famous. I see her the same as Kim K in that regard. It doesn't affect me in the slightest, I'm not upset or troubled by it, sometimes I just like to talk about low rating stuff that's in the news.

    I see that the casual mention of miscarriage is something that upsets and offends you deeply. I don't know you though so I'm sorry if what I said caused you distress. it was not something done with malice or bad intention.

    I do think your original post (I'm so disgusted) was perhaps not the best way to get people on your side though. it came across as a bit pious. people here are posting innocently enough, nobody is out to cause offence.

    I do agree GG seems like a sad, lost little girl. I got that vibe from brynne a bit too but GG seems to take it to a new level. I don't really get the Charlotte Dawson comparison though. GG courts the media, her Instagram is full of nudey look at me stuff. she wants attention (good or bad). she knows her actions will get people talking.
    Thank you for your apology. I get that it came across as aggressive but it is a really sensitive topic, and really hit hard. I knew you weren't wishing one on her, and said that later. But it still hurt.


    I feel very sorry for her- I don't know if she wants the attention, or if she feels that is all she is worth. But it's a sad situation to be in.

    I just googled her; came up on page 6.

    Funnily enough, under related searches it had Kim K 😉

    I've seen some comments people have written on FB and on her IG page; this doesn't even rate on the radar.

    I think though that this may be the crux of the issues here. You are defending her bc you feel sorry for her (which is fair enough). Some don't and don't think she is a victim. At the end of the day no one knows the truth and it's all speculation but I feel it's somewhat unfair to stifle conversation bc some are speculating she deserves sympathy. People are scolding for making assumptions and judgments... based on their own assumptions and judgments.

    Personally I think she is pg and they are both using each other. Neither are victims in my mind but again, I'm just guessing.

    Anyhoo, I'm backing away slowly from this thread
