    I don't think I would, if I already had a co-parent who for whatever reason couldn't be the other biological parent (was a woman, was infertile, etc.).

    so you wouldn't want to know the father? I'm confused I guess my mind moved from the lesbian aspect to the just getting kids aspect.

    Not if I already had a partner, I don't think I would. If I didn't have a partner I don't think I would want kids.

    yeah but your partner's male and you're female so why do you need to have another baby daddy? I mean unless something happened.

    I don't. I'm talking about a hypothetical situation. There are lots of reasons a woman with a male partner might need donor sperm- maybe her partner had a vasectomy before they met and has now changed his mind and wants kids. Maybe he had testicular cancer and the treatments made him sterile/infertile his testicles were removed. Maybe he's sterile/infertile for some other unknown reason. It happens. IF I were in one of those situations, or if I were a lesbian with a committed female partner, I don't think I would want to know the donor. It would just make things weirder.

    o ok, that makes a lot more sense. I don't know my thoughts on it to be honest for me personally. for anyone else my life is i control what happens in mine, i have how i like things. and other people's preferences don't bother me as long as they're not harming another. if someone wants to run around with horse masks on and spooking strangers at the mall, they can do that just don't drag me along. hell, I'll sit on a bench near by and watch if they really want me to be there, and I like them at least a little.

    Lol, I was gonna use that exact noun.

    I mean, though they may not use a turkey baster, when you go get artificially inseminated, I imagine it can't be much different. So while it seems odd to raise a stink over the wrong "product" and damning to a child's self esteem if you filed a lawsuit, ironically, a well organized frozen semen shelf could have prevented all of this.

    this reminds me of the urban legend of where a girl gives her boy friend head, and he doesn't want kids so she saves the semen freezes it than impregnants herself with it. I don't know how true that is, but people are crazy, considering people set their room mates on fire over spaghetti, I guess this isn't that much more far fetched.

    Ask a pro athlete's experience with alimony hungry groupies. I met a few and they all said that some women in that circle have ONE goal, getting knocked up by a rich pro-athlete.
