    Do you have kids?

    For one thing, one day you will be old. You want to be the guy who dies alone with no one that cares about You?

    Personally I put off kids forever. I didnt want the responsibility but I wanted one at some point. I'm 37, and I have a 1 year old. Will be 2 in February. My first. I even planned his birthday. Wanted it to be February 21. Same as mine. He was born early. The 18th.

    I had no idea how I'd feel about it. I couldn't imagine having an emotional attachment. What that would be like.

    You'll never love anything as much as your own kid. You'll die or kill for them. Nothing is as important.

    Might just be one of those things you have to do to understand.

    When the biological father was a schizophrenic, and the child developes similar mental health issues, I dont think you can blame that on bad parenting.

    The sperm bank claimed that their donar had a high IQ, PhD, and zero mental health issues, which was a lie.

    Do high IQ PHD candidates tend to be nut jobs?

    Adoption agencies can fail to mention behavioral problems. They probably thought this was their best chance for an above average child but the sperm bank did a crap job of vetting the donor.

    Another reason people opt for that instead of adoption, is that it's at least the mother's own child. If you want, you don't have to tell anyone about the sperm bank and people will just think it's your kid. And you get them from birth, rather than. Later which is important to some people.

    You missed the point. With adoption, they can get to know the child first.

    Life isn't always about being rational. They're kinda fun too.

    I remember years ago in China (maybe 10 or 15 years ago) there were lots of Chinese ladies on social media looking for white guys to impregnate them. It was usually something like:

    "my husband is impotent. Looking for healthy, intelligent white man to impregnate me. Must submit to screening for STD's or other genetic defects paid for by me. Willing to pay RMB 1000 for this "service".

    And yes, it was impregnation the old fashioned way.

    This can happen, I know a family that adopted a young kid from Russia. As he got older he went nuts, started eating batteries, became an anarchist and threatened to kill them and burn down the house. They tried to get him out of the house with a restraining order and had no luck. Was a total nightmare for them.

    If they paid for something agreed upon and were swindled, we’ll that’s wrong and illegal. If I pick certain sperm and pay for it, that’s the sperm I better get.

    Watch batteries or car batteries? Inquiring minds want to know.

    These were like AA batteries, they said it was the strangest thing they ever saw. The kid seemed obsessed with them, the adopted dad was a Dr. and he said they never seen anything like it before. They even tried to have the boy returned to Russia because they were fearful of him. He finally moved out when he hit 18, became gay and moved in with another gay guy. He became unrecognizable with tattoos all over his face etc. Total nightmare for them............

    Time to re-tell the battery puns:

    "I bet he got a charge out of that," etc.

    ...and is a registered Democrat Biden/Kamala voter....

    "Wendy and Janet Norman..."

    That should provide a major clue in that regard.
    The thought of hooking up with a man is probably abhorrent to both of them.
