Depends, is your father in jail?
 
2012-09-23 03:32:49 PM  
My father was an old fashioned old school philanderer. After marrying my mom, he found out he couldn't stand her and he'd take civil engineering jobs as far away from her as possible. One of my half brothers was the governor of a Bible Belt state. One of my half sisters used to wrestle for Titan Sports (now the WWE).

We're a strange bunch.

Your father would womanize; he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. Your childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring, you would make meat helmets. When you were insolent, you were placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds. Pretty standard, really. At the age of 12, you received your first scribe. At the age of 14, a Zoroastrian named Vilmer ritualistically shaved your testicles.

I used to be for this, but then i found out I was conceived by donor sperm and well... I live with the secret fear that I may marry and have kids with a half brother. I consider this guy basically doing the illegal sale of human tissue.

A buddy of mine works for the govt center here in MN. One day he's sitting in court off to the side reading some paper work while this trail is going on. It's some guy who was so far behind in his child support and it finally caught up to him. It turns out he has like 15 kids between 6 women, the judge asks him why he has so many children with so many different women. His response: Maaan I be concubining.
/i know that's not a word, but i'm doing my best here to convey his stupidity

if the walked fast enough on the trail maybe the child support wouldn't have caught up to him. better still would be to look behind you and run if you see the child support coming.

Well, you know what they say. Incest is best!

It should be against the law for single mothers to inseminate themselves. The world doesn't need anymore bastard children.

That's fine, but they shouldn't raise a child in that environment.

If you 34 half siblings does that calculated to 17 full siblings?

So, you used to be for it, then found out people actually did it. Now you are against it. Interesting premise.

When I was conceived in 1978. There was no testing or standards. The files are medical files and they are sealed. My father who raised me is not my genetic father. My mother who basically left me for a man 20 years older than she was and every time i saw her she was with some other man and needed cash as of late I don't know where she is (nor do I care). So if I need a transplant I won't be able to get one that has the least amount of a chance of rejection. Also like I said I don't want a half brother being my boyfriend and since I don't know who my bio dad is...well...yeah welcome to Fark.
There needs to be standards and controls in place so that the donors $elling human tissue can be taxed and controlled cause in all honesty one of his receivers can have a sick child and if he didn't know he no contract can be legally binding to prevent child support lawsuits. Then if the D.A, hates his guts can say "Well we can throw prostitution in there as well," don't laugh I am a part of a group of grown up donor babies who want the laws changed so we can have contact if and when we want to.
 
2012-09-23 05:23:19 PM  
And theses guys don't want contact. This push for contact is a huge reason that sperm donationis down and people are turning to this guy for sperm. Yes, they do it for money, just like plasma donors. Blood donors get thirst and cookies.

As long as it didn't effect you then you were ok with this. Now you holler because you are effected. Read about genetics more. Every mating between related people is not destined for doom. And every mating among non related doesn't end up problem free.

How about people just tax that guy then and regulate him? He has to allow access to medical records and he has to when prompted to pay child support?

Lets put it this way. I want you to imagine your Dad said I'm not your father but the guy in town who has had sex with 40 women did.
Second how about adoption? It's Canada there are tons of children in foster care who need homes I want more adoptions and Third, no surprise I am no genius I don't have a college degree worth shiat and maths isn't my strongest albatross.
But this is how I feel this is how I think I'm scared. I'm scared to have relationships. Because of this truth. It's not a nice life. No one wants me anyway I'm fat, ugly and poor. My mom didn't and my family hates me and blames me for destroying my Dad's marriage and this was before I found out.

alice_600: Also like I said I don't want a half brother being my boyfriend and since I don't know who my bio dad is...


A couple solutions here
1. date outside your race
2. move to a different state, you will be less likely to find a half-brother there. your story sounds VERY small townish.
3. don't have casual sex; in fact don't have sex with someone until you know them well enough to explain that "fear of accidental mating with half-brother is not entirely unfounded", and maybe you guys can both get genetic tested.

Also, it's not your fault that all this stuff happened. It's your family. They are Jerry Springer show contestant material. Sorry.

He isn't their father. As long as that threat holds men won't donate. The father is the one who is on the birth certificate. And if the woman doesn't put anyone down then she is responsible. He does what he does because it is legal, he makes money and he wants to

Your self esteem issues aren't because of donated sperm. Get therapy and get over it.

He's donating the sperm... he isn't charging them for it. All the talk of tax and regulate is moot.

Why don't we just give him custody of the baby too while we're at it? Suggesting a sperm donor should be required to be available for contact or compelled to pay child support makes about as much sense to me as if my spouse and I were to go to my child's' birthmother and demand child support. We have adopted our child. The child is ours. No one owes us child support. The agreement this man and the mothers have is he relinquishes all claim to the children and is free of financial obligations to the children.
