Toppenish High student fakes pregnancy as social test about stereotypes, rumors. A high school senior in Yakima, Washington endured 6.5 months of rumors and stereotypes while faking a pregnancy on a quest to learn more about the life of a teenage mom. No one knew her secret but her mom, the principal, her boyfriend and best friend. She revealed the lie at a school-wide assembly, where she pulled off the fake belly after reading degrading quotes from notecards of rumors that were spread about her. She'll publish a report on her experience soon. Power to this young lady for having the balls to not let ego get in the way of social experimentation.
