Its not free ffs, you have to pay a £200 deposit iirc.

Also the laptops SF provide will have lower specs than current one.

Debateable, I always thought parents especially the mothers/fathers who use spermbanks - where it may not really be their child perhaps, should love their "children" regardless.

The whole thing is too messy, I would say adoption is a more viable solution.

p.s. Are you in faze clan?
well thats true

no what is faze clan?

excellent
I would also ban men with low IQ
How would you measure IQ? An IQ test that is inherently racist? This is a veiled bid to breed out minorities.

Doesn't everyone do that lolzzzz.
What the hell are you talking about? It's just about being optimal, why would you include those factors for the sake of including it?

Britain's largest sperm bank bans men with dyslexia, autism and ADHD from donating, triggering outrage over 'eugenics'
  • London Sperm Bank admits it screens men for 'neurological conditions'
  • These include dyslexia, ADHD, autism and Asperger's syndrome
  • Campaigners have accused the clinic of 'eugenics' - attempting to genetically improve the human race
  • Fertility watchdog has launched investigation in light of the claims

Frankly, I'm not outraged about this because they are banning men on the autistic spectrum but because this seems like a gateway to breeding out black and brown people in Western countries. Am I right to be worried about this?
I see nothing wrong with this..

Personally I don't see anything wrong with what they've done. Strange world where attempting to "improve the human race" is used as a criticism.


(I'm going to ignore your attempt to turn this into a race thing.)
So much for treating everyone with equal respect.

I don't see the issue with this sperm banks often look for the best of the best in terms of genetics. It is a form of eugenics.

There's a difference between being 'disrespectful' to someone because of their autism, for example, and preferring to not have such genes perpetuated through sperm banks which often look for the 'best' genes.


This is not a nice issue, I'll admit, but it's one worth discussing.

If a woman had a choice between healthy sperm and sperm that carries risk, she would always go for the healthy one
The only way around that is to not tell the woman, but that's clearly unethical

but it's not
this way, an increased number of babies born are healthy
while people with disabilites of any sort should be respected, it is not something you want to pass down
