Bastardette is taking a few days off to hob-nob with minor Bushistas and to take in the sights and sounds of our national fortress–that is–Washington, DC in cherry blossom time. Hopefully she will be regurgitated safely from the Belly of the Beast and be little need of first aid outside of a good stiff Suffering Bastard–or should I say Bastardette?

Call me Ishmael!

Call me Jonah!

Bastardette may or not may not have much internet access, but will report on the entire funfest when she returns next week. I bet you can’t wait!

In the meantime, gnaw on this cute story for awhile:

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, April 6, 2005
Custody dispute takes odd turn in case of surrogate triplets: egg donor seeks parental rights

It’s too long to post here, but it begins:

A 23-year old Arlington Texas woman told a judge yesterday that although she has only once visited 16-month old surrogate triplets created with her eggs, a Cleveland man’s sperm and another woman’s womb, her parental rights should be preserved….

And it only gets better.


  1. It’s time to abolish simple concepts such as parental rights and put families on a sound commercial footing.

    Instead of birth certificates, all children should be registered as closely held corporations at birth, with each person contributing services or material to the production of the child receiving shares in the newborn corporation, valid through the age of majority, at which time the corporation may elect to recall all outstanding shares and go private or issue new shares in an initial public offering.

    Mr. J.

    This is neither a solicitation nor an offer to sell shares. Before investing in Mr. J., Inc., read the prospectus.

  2. what a very interesting blog indeed…..I am a reunited irish birthmother and inmate of the magdalene mother and baby homes in ireland….I will be back often to read this blog….god bless and keep the faith…
