Off to the bank
Im sad that it took until 2011 for people to realize that sperm banks aren't exactly the greatest idea in the world, especially if there is no strict regulation. 1 man has 150 children because he decided to spank his monkey for a living (ok, idk if he really does it for a living or not lol). Thats pure insanity. Even at the age of like 10 when i barely knew left from right about making babies, i knew that there was something stupid about this whole sperm bank idea. I remember asking someone (not sure who) about a situation just like this: what if two people come from the same donor and end up marrying each other and having mutant babies?!? What happens if your offspring grow up and decide to marry? What if they don't marry but these meet at a club or something and decide to just bang each other? And its not even just half-siblings but aunts uncles cousins nieces nephews...the whole sha-bang! By not knowing your father, that's an entire half of your family that you could unknowingly be having relations and relationships with. Ugh. the whole thing is just...i don't even know what to say.
Similarly this is why i don't understand why men are so freaking reckless, going about making babies all over the place that they don't acknowledge or take care of. I remember reading the story a couple of years back about a 29 year old man who had 21 kids with like 11+ different women. And this was just on his own from laying up with this girl and that girl, doesn't even involve a sperm bank. While i feel bad for the children involved, i can't help but look at the women who fooled around with that dude. Ok baby mama number 1 and 2 maybe i can have some sympathy for. But once you found out the dude was on baby number 3 with a different chick that he knocked up and didn't marry, you should've turned and walked the other way, talk less of being baby mama number 10+ even worse is that several of these women have multiple children by him. SMDH. I really feel bad for the kids because even though he's trying to help take care of them, its impossible. From what i remember he works a minimum wage job and even when they garnish his wages, there are still some of those kids that are literally getting a dollar each month, not to mention that some of them probably don't get anything at all.
