5. Strong, Independent Women…Who Complain About Their “Sperm Donors”

STFU Parents

I really hate the term “sperm donor” as it’s applied to men who did nothing to help bring about or raise a child except to “donate their sperm.” I mean, I get it, but that terminology gives me a case of the sads. Melissa sounds like she’s been doing great, so why give her “sperm donor” a birthday shout-out at all? She’s raising an amazing kid, sounds like a dedicated mom, and all she has to do now is stop talking about her child’s father on the internet. Shouldn’t be too hard, right? Hopefully this is the first update of its kind, and Melissa doesn’t post this every year on her “sperm donor’s” birthday. After all, he’s the one who’s in prison. What’s the point?
