It's about starting a family with offspring that is similar to you. Racial mix-ups undermine that.

THE largest sperm bank in Britain is under investigation from health officials over claims they used sperm from the wrong donor after a gay couple had two children from different racial backgrounds.

Even in 2012 that's a head-spinning article opener.

FTFA: In 2002, a white couple had mixed-race twins after an Asian man's sperm was mistakenly used to fertilise the woman's eggs at a Leeds IVF clinic. "All we wanted was a family. Instead, we were landed with a nightmare that will last forever," the woman later said.

Sounds pretty farking racist to me. A "nightmare"? Really lady?

"The damage to the [younger] child in the future, to both the siblings and the family unit could be quite catastrophic," said Caron Heyes, the couple's lawyer.

Only if you keep reminding the kid about how he's so much different than the rest of the family. Treat him with unconditional love and acceptance (which is what you'd expect from a gay couple) and the kid will be just fine.

A nightmare that will last forever? Wonderful way of thinking about your children there, lady... I kind of hope she gave them up for adoption or something, because if she raises them, they're going to end up very farked up in the head...

Well, isn't that just special coming from the couple that doesn't like dick. It's not like the kids won't figure out later that they are bastards anyway.

Wanting your spermbank children to all to have the same donor isn't racist.

What is rather racist is the implicit assumption that the family is white and the new child black.

They could be Asian and the new child Eskimo, for all we know.

I have 3 children. My oldest is black haired with darker skin.My middle child has light brown hair and is not as dark.My youngest has blonde hair and very fair skin.
They are all fathered by the same man.
I didn't get to pick what I wanted my kids to look like and I think that given the chance I couldn't play God.
This whole thing just gives me the creeps.

A child possessed by Satan is a nightmare that will last forever. Having ones of different color, not so much. The kids are gonna have more issues having two mommies versus why his/her brother or sister is a different color.

Yeah, there was a goof-up -- it isn't like they could tell the race of the donor by the color of the sperm. However, if you can't (or won't) have kids the normal way, and you just absolutely have to have a kid or five, just be farking grateful the procedure worked. In this case spay / neuter would have been the prudent thing.

I hate these people a bit. Your child is a "nightmare that will last forever?" Nice. And you don't just think this; you put this on the internet.

I hope instead of any future fertility treatments, you put that money in an account for your child's future therapy. They'll need it.

And suing the doctor because of the child you ended up with? Can you imagine being so repulsive to your parents that they feel the need to sue? My heart hurts for these kids. The parents don't deserve them.

Actually, I hate these people a whole lot.

ho.lee.shiat.

even with natural birth there is no guarantees. i wonder what this horrible excuse for a human would have done if she had a child with birth defects.
she should give that baby to a family that will raise it with love in their hearts as obviously she has none. the longer i live the more i hate people.

Well there are plenty of people that would think nothing of making interracial babies with a woman of another race if they married one that there is NO WAY IN HELL they would marry a woman of their own race with interracial babies from a previous relationship.

You are soooo right. If television sit-coms have taught me anything, it's that homosexuals have superhuman compassion and as a rule are much nicer than pretty much anyone else on the planet. Also very sassy.

FTFA The damage to the [younger] child in the future, to both the siblings and the family unit could be quite catastrophic,"

So let me get this straight (no pun intended). The couple, who cannot have children naturally due to being gay, are concened that the children will be damaged be not being genetically from the same missing father? And yet they see no possibility whatsoever that they might be just as damaged by being from a same sex couple?

If these people are only cluing in to the fact that there was a mix up because of the color of the kid's skin, then i wonder how many SAME RACE mix ups happen and go under the radar?

And yes, these parents are idiots. They should consider themselves lucky that modern science allows them to procreate at all.

There is a lot of racism within the lesbian community. Yes, I am speaking from experience. You'd think people who've been victims of discrimination wouldn't be prejudiced, but you'd be quite wrong.

My partner has two children from a straight marriage she had prior to coming out. They have red hair and green eyes. She has blond hair and blue eyes. I am black and have black hair and light brown eyes. Guess what? None of that matters. The children are being raised with love from both of us, and her extremely-supportive ex-husband. They'll be healthier than most of the kids out there.

There are two types of people in this world: assholes and non-assholes. The former is the only group against whom I discriminate.

THIS for me, too. The "parents" in TFA are horrible people IMHO for a) doing the turkey baster thing instead of adopting in the first place and then b) not accepting the poor child. What happens when these children are older and they find out their parents didn't want them after finding things like TFA on the interwebs?

Yes, and racial minorities tend to be the most homophobic. Just look at voting statistics for gay rights issues by race. It goes both ways.
