Nice, subby!  I see what you did there.

So our sperm really travels some great distance and ends up all over the place?   No news there.

Sorry subby, bukkake is japanese, not chinese.

Am I the only dude around who's thought about donating sperm but just thinks it'd be a little too strange to have kids that you don't know about?

I mean, I have this scenario in my head where I'm at some public place, I turn around, and there's this kid (maybe 4 or 5 years old) just staring up at me, and he looks just like me. Then the mother pulls the kid away.

"Isn't that the one with all the vials of...."

"Yeah, I think so."

"Send the new guy to clean it up."

Not, it's not just you.  Especially now that I have a kid.  To imagine that I would have more kids out there somewhere, possibly not being taken care of?

There was an article a while back about a guy who donated a ton of sperm in college.  It was back when things were pretty new and he was a good looking ivy league guy or something so he wound up fathering a bunch of kids through the program.  He talked about how it was tough for his GF's/spouse knowing that random kids might pop up and say hi.  Plus he was concerned that his offspring might wind up getting to gether and unknowingly have incest babies.

Actually, that article implies that they would be citizens if she could only prove one of the biological parents were American. (The issue there is that the birth mother is not the biological mother; both the egg and the sperm were donated anonymously.) So, maybe not easy, but definitely not impossible. Seems like there would be a market for verifiably American sperm/eggs.

As an american male that donates sperm to a chinese female on a regular basis, I'm getting a kick out of this thread

Surly U. Jest: I thought that was big in Japan?


What's big in Japan is about 4" in America.

I should be "donating" for cash.  My girlfriend would thank me for ... well, for leaving less for her to have to deal with.
It's that plentiful.

That's the other way around.  It's saying that the children are not American citizens if both the boilogical parents are not citizens, even if the person giving birth to them is.

Which is also nuts, but it's a whole different kind of nuts.

I thought about doing that as well a number of years ago. The only reason I didn't actually go through it with is because you can't jerk off or have sex during your donation period, which is twice a week for a month. If they catch you cheating (by checking your sperm count), they'd void your contract and pay you nothing.

Almost. It's saying that the children aren't American citizens if neither of the biological parents are citizens, even if the person giving birth is.
"The U.S. State Department says a child born outside the USA to an American cannot receive citizenship until a biological link with at least one parent is established"

Not the exact same scenario as a sperm donor, but enough to show how ill-equipped the law is when it comes to in vitro.

Nevermind, you were right; I just read it wrong. I was thinking our phrasings were different in the one parent is, one parent isn't case. But it's one of them De Morgan's Law things (\A & \B) == \(A | B) and all that.
