Michael Jackson

Yeah, I know, not something you'd ever think you'd see here. However, I am saddened by his loss. He, like Farrah, was a huge part of my childhood. I remember going to USA Skating to see the premier of Thriller. I loved his music, his moves, his talent. When the accusations came out that he had molested those kids... part of my childhood was lost. Because of his wealth, he could easily buy his way out of the situation. Did he? We'll probably never know the truth. Part of me wants to believe he was the victim of his fame and that he only wanted to be a friend to all of the children in his world.

I guess you're wondering why I'm blogging about it. The latest "news" to come out is that Michael may not be the biological father of his children. That he may have used a sperm donor. What is bothering me is the fact that the media is claiming Jackson not real father of his children. That "Surprise! Michael Jackson's children look nothing like him!

To all the rags printing this garbage... WHO THE FUCK CARES? He is their father. He has been the man raising them and these poor children are mourning the loss of their father. Not a stranger. Why is it necessary to point out they don't look like him. I know plenty of children who don't look like their parents (and yes, they are biologically related).

The adoption community faces this fight day after day. Just because Dylan is not biologically connected to me does not mean he isn't my child. I love him with the fire of a million suns - as does his father. The fact that we don't look alike means NOTHING.

So, to the media, if you have nothing to nice to say... do me a favor and STFU.

    I can't imagine that anyone doubts that Michael Jackson was a great father, nor do I think that bringing the issue up of him using a sperm donor is meant to be a slur against adoptive parents. Michael Jackson spent much of his life in a type of denial of his African American heritage. Although he chose a white woman to bear his children, it was generally believed that he provided the sperm - i.e., that his children were biracial. For him to not have provided the sperm and not to have requested African American sperm shows just how far he would go to leave his natural skin color behind. I think that's what's shocking about this report.

  2. Anonymous - I am sure there are plenty of people who will question his ability to be a good father.

    I respectfully disagree. As someone with a genetically received disease, I would think his motiviation is more to avoid passing along a diseae which obviously caused him much pain (emotionally if nothing else).

    Just my two cents. Thank you for the response.

  3. I am convineced by your thoughts... but we have to agree to one fact that can never be changed.... MJ was the kinf of POP and father of Dance...
