White Woman Sues Over Being Turned Into a Black Mom

“There is no darkness but ignorance.” – Twelfth Night

A woman in Ohio apparently received the wrong sperm from a sperm bank, but only found out after she was pregnant. She is white and had ordered sperm from a white sperm donor, but was inseminated with sperm from an African American instead.  She had her baby, bonded with her for two years, but only recently decided to sue the sperm bank after experiencing how hard it actually is to raise an African American child.  OMG.  Read this article.  I’m sorry this happened to this woman, but at this point I’m much sorrier for her poor daughter.  How is this lawsuit going to make her feel?  There is nothing wrong with darkness, people, the only wrong is ignorance.

“The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose, and pouch on side,
His youthful hose well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound.” – As You Like It

My in-laws were in town last week, and despite the fact that my father-in-law is 85 years old (!), he is nothing like the sixth age of man that Shakespeare describes above.  He still walks, drives, snow mobiles, he even roofed his house last year.  Granted, he’s a bit shrunk and wears glasses (though so do I), but otherwise his overall fitness is impressive.
