Such a fascinating piece! Well-written and -researched, thought-provoking, and about something I’d never heard of.

It’s so wild to imagine my husband dying and his parents seeking to impregnate other women with his sperm.

It’s weird how much emphasis people put on specific gene lines continuing. And I say this as someone who parented a child and enjoys that we’re genetically related. Like, I get it, but it’s just so weird when we realize we, just like every other species, are mostly living in a way to spread our seed.
