Doctors Discover Dallas Twins Have Two Different Dads--Lord, in the Age of Barack Obama, Why Must this Woman be Black? Are You Mocking Us?

God above, I offer a prayer.

Does this woman know any shame?

Why does she not run and hide under a rock?

What sensible human being would appear on television and own this foul, whorish, disgusting behavior?

Who would tell children the particulars of their most befouled conception?

Lord, fate of an infinite sense of humor.

He, who made all things.

Thou, who gave us Maury Povich, why have YOU made this real.

Crom, I know you laugh at the stupidity of mortals, but did this happen in one night or two nights, in the A.M. or the P.M., several days apart, or all in one session?

These are the great mysteries which you must illuminate. And why must this woman be black?

Doctors Discover Dallas Twins Have Two Different Dads

Monday, May 18, 2009

Twin boys, 11-month-old Justin and Jordan, have different fathers.

A Texas mother of twins got the shock of her life when doctors revealed that her 11-month-old boys do not have the same father.

Mia Washington decided to get some expert advice when she and her partner noticed that twins Justin and Jordan had different facial features.

Paternity tests then revealed what had happened — two eggs had been fertilized by two different sperm and there was a 99.99% chance the twins had different dads.

Doctors at the DNA lab in Dallas, Texas had never seen such a result.

Washington later admitted she had had an affair and got pregnant by two different men at the same time.

"Out of all people in America and of all people in the world, it had to happen to me, she told myfoxdfw.com. “I'm very shocked."

"It is very crazy. Most people don't believe it can happen, but it can,” Genny Thibodeaux, Clear Diagnostics President, told the news station.

When twins have two fathers, doctors call it heteropaternal superfecundation, according to myfoxdfw.com. It's so rare — there are only a handful of documented cases in the world.

Typical. Chauncey, you continue to reinforce patriarchal norms. Why does a woman who has unprotected sex with more than one partner in rapid succession have to be labeled a "whore?" This woman is simply liberated from your repressive gender and sex mores. How dare you judge this woman for her transgressive sexual/reproductive choices!

But seriously,

The most disturbing part of all of this is that this woman sought out the TV station to broadcast her triflin-ass stank behavior. You can't even accuse news reporters of looking for a stereotypical story a la the KFC shortage "protests"; ign'ants are now doing it for them.

What ever happened to shame?

maybe if you weren't so sick with a kind of self-righteousness you'd realize she is human and allowed mistakes, even if they are what you obviously consider to be morally repugnant.

befouled conception? really?
a life is a life. who the fuck are you to judge how it came to be? smh.

other than that the article is actually interesting. too bad the woman needed all the press, black or not.

Who would tell children the particulars of their most befouled conception?Think of it what you will, but the manner of their conception reflects nothing about these children. As the mother of twins myself, they should simply grow up together, realizing how lucky they are to always have a best friend in each other.

@Gordon--This is in fact transgressive sexual behavior that strikes back against patriarchy...that having been said she is still befouled. Ha, I love that word. Where is the shame? Shame left the room right around the time the Moynihan report was written.

@staphanie-I was kind in my musings. I was going to compare their conception to that of Freddy Krueger's from the nightmare on elm street series, but I decided that was a bit harsh. Yes, befouled as in not pure troubling, and yucky. Now that doesn't mean that the kids can't go on to do great things, they just don't need to know about their mother's ways. Part of childhood is innocence, and these kids should be granted that.

@PPR Scribe--My point exactly!

Aren't there any white teachers having sex with their students stories out there to cover? Those stories are far more damaging to society than this story. This story is covered on the Maury "I hate Women and teenage girls" Povich show every day.

so a woman had sex with 2 men within her fertile period
the world wont come to an end because of it, what makes it disgusting and whorish? not a big deal to me.

Anonymous said...

she was married and cheated, and you ask "who are you to judge?" A hit dog barks, those who shake their fist must do the same low moral acts!!

gordon gartrelle said...

So, I suppose you all would extend this same sympathetic defense to a man who cheated on his pregnant wife and also impregnated his mistress?

Yeah, didn't think so.

co-sign gordon!
that woman's chicken will come home to roost..
daddy will be gone if they don't make money from this...

I read this story earlier this evening on The Huffington Post and to be honest with you I found the woman and her partner (husband?) to be rather forthcoming and genuine. I commend the woman for admitting her mistake and her desire to see this through for the children's sake and I commend the man for his forgiveness and raising the two children as his own.

gordon gartrelle said...

You all are missing the point.

Of course no human is perfect and we all make mistakes.

But you don't see a problem with this woman seeking the limelight to broadcast her irresponsible behavior while displaying no ounce of shame or remorse?

She could have soldiered on and lived her life without calling her local news affiliate and parading her kids around like circus freaks/medical curiosities.

Look at the bright side we know she is fertile so check that off of our worry list. LOL

Truth be told 15 minutes of fame used to be enough pay but now TV shows and donations come in from being a idiot. Look at Octomom she trademarked the name and got free ish all over the place. Jerry Springer and COPS broke the mold and we can't put humpty dumptey back together again.

In this modern age there is no such thing as shame!

Your title reflects my sentiments exactly..I was hoping for it to be another couple that looked like the ones that shot the 7 year old down near Houston for being on their property...is this the meaning of *liberal* media? Christ!!
