Our Father(2022)

Once again I went to Netflix early this morning to find something to watch before I went to bed. I came across this documentary called "Our Father"(2022). The story is astounding. A woman goes to a specialist(Dr. Kline) for help in conceiving. Her daughter later gets a DNA test because she just feels something is off. Yeah, see these poor people go to the doctor in good faith. The husband produces sperm right there in the office. They have a child and feel it is their biological child. Come to find out that, even though the husband gives his sperm the doctor still uses his own sperm for these women. The woman in the doc begins researching and reaching out to others that this same thing has happened. She researches the doctor's background. She gets a television newscaster involved. The newswoman reaches out to authorities, trying to get some answers. When she does start getting some feedback she traces each person on Facebook and learns that some are affiliated with something called Quiverfull. Quiverfull is a cult. It's sort of White Supremacist in that the cult believes that they need to get as many white children born and out into the world as possible. They are afraid that the Caucasians are losing ground and soon will be no more. And that isn't the worst of it. The question of whether rape by insemination can be a crime. What ended up happening is that he lied to the Attorney General about the inseminations. Level 6 felonies and a $500 fine are all this guy got. No jail time. And the DNA matches keep coming. There were 61 acknowledged in the documentary and 91 known as of the date of the documentary.

@TheHorse..thank you for calling me here. My views are these. Our eyes and ears and nose and tongue and skin tell us what we like and dislike. We cannot monitor what our eyes tell us...NO...you should not call another person brown or black. Because that is a perception capability the god almighty gave us. So I am fine with being called black or brown. That is my attribute. But that said, people differ in their thinking and perceptions based on personal experiences in their lives. If they have experienced prejudices or discrimination due to color of their skin, then they are gonna have mistrust. I have not experienced such discrimination. The age at which we experience such discrimination and the extent of damage or hurt it gives cements the mistrust or prejudices. Feeling that whites are supreme .. well, all I can say is they have had less mental battles to tackle when compared to us brownies. This has left them with more time on hand, enabling them to focus on a lot of things which if I may be honest, have improved our lives across all races. I am not a genius like Einstein or you, but I am fine in my skin. If you called me brownie or blackie, I will retaliate ..frozen meat or powdered paracetamol. Humor is what needs to be taught from childhood so that people learn to take things in stride, and prejudices can be dissipated in a friendly fashion. As to this guy...while caucasian numbers are coming down .. he should remember that affordability helps to establish survival of a race. That is where the focus should be. The west is not safe at all, because of which cost of living is rather high.

I am glad to hear that you have not experienced discrimination. So unfair for those who have. Yes! A sense of humor is so important in this life. I find the differences in people make this world interesting. Humans do need to learn to live and let live.

I don’t believe there will be a survival of race, one day in the future there will only be one race and one color as our decedents congregate and intermarry. In my family we have white, black, Spanish, American Indian and Korean. At this rate it won’t be long and it’s coming sooner than you think. I for one hope I live to see it.

Wow! A really interesting story. What's interesting to me is that I'm sort of a "cultural elitist." I would like to see more people be "just like me." But not "pale" like me, as @Vandana7 would say. I would like to see more people enjoy playing sports, enjoy reading, appreciating (and perhaps playing) good music, being intellectually inquisitive, being empathetic toward others, etc. But I don't influence the next generation with my sperm. I influence it through teaching. I teach 1-year-olds to play "catch," I sing with the children I work with, and respond to their questions with answers and then more questions, I validate "owies," etc. I think that these values are culturally transmitted, not transmitted by genes. The most "empathetic" children I have ever worked with are the mostly Mexican-American children I work with now. Is empathy in ones genes? I doubt it. I think it is taught. And it is a part of some cultures. I admit my own "cultural narcissism." But I do what I do honestly. I wish that guy had done some time. He has undoubtedly caused confusion (to be understated) in the parents he worked with.

It is a strange world Pony ji. The child of the most intelligent person can turn out to be an idjit. LOL. I agree with you that empathy is taught just like we are told this is fashionable and looks good on us and accept that the next year the same thing is dowdy..LOL. All your qualities are exactly what I want, and I don't even qualify at jack level forget being ace in any. LOL. I was thinking this morning that I do have OCD ..in holding anger. I need to get it out of my system because that is how I have wasted much of my time instead of learning music or other things. I usually find a target ..somebody who has hurt me recently and spend a lot of time thinking about the hurt in the process magnifying it, say while brushing teeth or bathing. Bringing up the past hurts too in the process - keeping the wound and prejudices alive and so also the reason for hurt alive. There is a darker side to me that you don't know. While I don't like fighting, if the person doesn't leave me alone after I have walked away, I can show my fangs - nasty language and at that point, yes, I can be unreasonable too. Not an angel that you possibly think I am. LOL The reason I am in awe of you. More so lately... in a way, we both have had to turn inwards for that support - you lost your folks earlier on, and I have had a parent who hasn't been much of a support. You chose games and music to brush aside anything unpleasant, whereas I stored hurt like diamond jewelry. LOL Just morning thoughts...

@vandana7 I want to be simple. This Richard Thompson tune is one of my favorites. I don't know if it would resonate with you or not.

Big time. I think we all have our views and want others to understand them but, few are so arrogant as to do as Kline did.

A biological child. must be produced by the real father and not by another person like what the doctor did.

I’ve heard about these doctors who insimanate their patients.with their own sperm I’ve read that a lot of them do it to feed their own ego and others belong to cults. Some doctors continue to get away with it.

Wow that is crazy, some Genghis Khan stuff right there. Talk about spreading seeds they say something like half the world is a decedent of his and you know by if you can drink milk. My brother told me this and he exaggerates but Genghis was no joke when it came to him wanting power and he was smart as all hell he not only conquered lands but made many children to carry his name. He was at least a lot less racist than that from what that sounds.

Khan was quite a fanatic to the extreme. So many have tried to rule the world and failed. Thank goodness.

Wow, what a weird story. I wonder whether he became a doctor for that reason or whether that happened later.

I don't know about that. I think he was retired by the time this came out. He should have his license taken away if he was still practicing.

Did the documentary tell what the daughter felt was "off"?

Several felt this same way. They were in families that had dark hair and eyes and she was blonde with blue eyes.

So true. I am still glad we have a right to our opinions and such. Just not to the extremes some go to.
