If you’re reading this, I’m assuming you haven’t heard the story about the guy that donated sperm to a lesbian couple and now faces the prospect of having to support the kid.
“This story begins on Craigslist in March 2009. That was when Marotta noticed an advertisement from the Topeka couple, seeking donated sperm.”
Honestly, does anything good ever happen on Craigslist?
According to the story, the judge stated that the donor “failed to conform to Kansas law, which says a licensed physician must be involved in an artificial insemination process.” Never mind that Kansas law is also generally designed to make sure a doctor is nowhere to be found if you want to terminate a pregnancy. But, God forbid if you don’t have a certified MD manning the turkey baster when your partner is spread eagle on the coffee table. Kansas sure is frigged up.
But, like a kindergartner picking his nose, sometimes you gotta search for the best part. Buried further down the page is this nugget: “Intrigued by the ad, [Marotta] says, he delivered three cupfuls of his sperm — gratis — to the women.”
Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Three cups full? That’s your lede! You have a guy that can blow three cups full and your story is about the child support?! Holy Crap. What is this guy, a Centaur?
Rick Santorum got his own entry in urban dictionary. This guy should get a national holiday.
