(Slate)   "My half-sister is a terrible human being who has wanted to have children. I froze several of my embryos, but I donated them instead of giving them to her. Does that make me a bad person?"   (slate.com) divider line

You and your partner's Embryos, your decision to make. You are under no obligation to supply any other person on the face of the Earth with one of your personal clusters of cells just because they want them. How fuking presumptuous. Personally, I think she made a good call.

Good thing about half-sisters and brothers is that you don't have to love them 100%, either. Five to ten percent is decent enough.

Coming from a horrific, abusive, violent, child molesting, unfun, hyper religious douchebags, just send this meme to them.

If they all unite with the toxic half sister, then so be it. They are all in league with douchebags, they support douchebags and THEY are douchebags. Move far away, have nothing to do with them.

I'm actually fascinated by the kind of person who would think "I kind of know this person but don't like them. Are they entitled to my embryos?"

I am scared about what will happen when the truth comes out. My twins know about their sisters; we have a distant but amiable relationship with their families.

The fark

Hmmm... The mistake here was having a tenuous relationship with the donee families. It has become the weak point.

I would say fark her Dad, but that's kind of hard to do at this point.

Tell her just doing butt stuff won't get you pregnant.

No one is ever entitled to your body. They can guilt trup you until you die, they die, or you relent. But your body, your choice

Not to threadjack - but what is the legal standing if those 'extra kids' (now being raised by another couple) suddenly (accident, etc) end up as orphans?   Can the original parents reclaim them from the other family if they don't think those gparents are suitable, since the original couple can prove that those 2 other kids are genetically theirs?

1) It's My Life And I'll Do What I Want: The only thing you did wrong was lie about not having embryos left.  You should have just told her to GFY.

2) I'm Gonna Get Drunk, Don't You Have No Fear.  I Want One Bourbon, One Scotch And One Beer: Stop drinking so much if it makes you uncomfortable.

3) I Love My Boss: If your boss cares, then it should not be a problem to correct.  If not, then you want another job anyway.

4) One Person Conditioned To Rule And Control: Normal/Not Normal is not the question.  It's inappropriate.  DTMFA.

5) I've Been Thinking About Sex.  I've Been Thinking About Intimacy: Set your boundaries and if they are not respected, DTMFA.

6) Wake Up.  Grab A Brush And Put A Little Make-Up: Tell him to STFU so you can sleep.  And get a new roommate.

7) It's My Life II: I expect Nan can do basic farking math and know they were donated when she was looking if she finds out in the first place.  Nan can still GF herself.

8) I Love My Boss II: Given the bosses age, they may well have been conditioned to think of "Black" as racist.  This likely was when African-American was the term of preference sensitive white people told other white people to use.  However as folks started to come around to understand it didn't cover non-Americans of African decent it left a lot of folks with a reflex to avoid the term "Black" but with no replacement.  Which is to say the task here is likely trying to undo decades of language conditioning and telling them to GTHOI is easier said than done.  This does not mean one should not try, just setting expectations.

9) You And Me....And Her (Follow-Up): That's nice, now STFU.

10) I.L.B.T's (Classic): You know what they say, when you've seen one set of breasts you pretty much want to see them all.  But if your friend needs some sort of admission that your husband is an irredeemable pervert, I'm afraid they'll have to GTHOI.

If a person is unable to have children for any reason, it is not incumbent on ANYBODY else to care or to lift a finger to help them.
