I followed that "moron" link to find out what you referred to. This guy's title doesn't seem to work for his cause, by the way.
MORON is a good word. "Buffoon" is pretty good too, but I'm scared that person isn't joking...that that site is not just a spoof.
He (she?) refers to human beings conceived of donor sperm as "the donateds" throughout his blogs. And he doesn't appear to be trying to be cruel, it's just the callous way he refers to these human beings. Really lends credence to the stand he seems to be taking! (not.)
In his "About me" he compares adoptions/donorships to slavery and wife beating as well as excessive CO2 emissions. So...donorships should change too? (How so?) I had difficulty following the train of thought here.
And I for one, love etymology and have a pretty good vocabulary but found his (or her) verbal posturing DROLL! His thoughts are scattered and fragmented.
Really, you gotta laugh! Keep reading his various blogs (which is very difficult!).
He/she talks as if humans are being donated and sold. And while I know the abortion issue raises question about how early a person becomes a person, (zygote, blastocyst, embryo, fetus, WHEN exactly?), I don't believe sperm are at issue anywhere but his blog. Donated sperm creates an unhappy "donated"? And this is not fair to them? (you are such mean donor sperm recipients!) *rolling eyes*
In his paragraph "Why roots matter..." he is apparently talking to homosexuals but is so unclear in his thinking and writing that you don't know that until he mentions "same as hetero's money". He ends the paragraph saying the fertility industry "doesn't give a damn if the children sold to the public are happy". Yeah dude, appalling! Why aren't they determining before the sale, whether those sperm actually WANT to become a human "donated"? (Oh...but you already KNOW they would NOT!)
Wait! I have some friends who are parents of "donateds"! Let's see if they would describe them as being as miserable with their lives as he claims! Of course if THEY (the parents) referred to their children as "the donateds", I bet there would be bigger issues at hand other than the facts of their conception!
I have a suggestion for this blogger...given his ideology and compassion for sperm, I think he should become a serious advocate for them.
He should stop picking on parents who love the resulting human being, their child, and go after those men who, through countless masturbatory emissions during their lives, are murdering potential "donateds" and non-donateds! I think this is so much more shocking!
Ok maybe I'm being dramatic. Perhaps it's just reckless abandonment? Either way....a SERIOUS cause to fight for!
Roxymommy, I loved your post and
