Seems like that kid really ISN'T his son (and neither is that one, or that one)

    So says TMZ, about Michael Jackson and his, errrrrrr, someone's children.

    Doesn't matter in any way...plenty of kids are conceived via alternative methods, for a vast variety of reasons. These are his children.

    Makes me sick that these kids are going to get dragged through this.

    And by all that I have seen so far, what those children will be dragged through has set itself up to be just awful.

    I should show this to my kid and tell her "see how lucky you are that we're middle class? When mom and dad go the whole kit and caboodle is yours. Who else would want it?"

    His kids, spawned by the fruits of his testicles, right?

    That said, his whole life was such a freak show that this was inevitable. It was going to happen.

    In the same way that adopted children are their parents' kids.

    Are you joking, or just utterly clueless?

    Adoption, sperm donors, egg donors, surrogates....all produce non-biological families. Nothing exotic or newsworthy or salacious about it.

    I think sperm donors and egg donors usually only stand in for one of the parents. Seems like MJ had stand-ins for both parents, according to TMZ -- Deborah Rowe as surrogate mother, and who knows as sperm donor.

    Why not just adopt?

    I don't know, why not just let the folks decide for themselves?

    And not true that donors 'stand in' for one parent, it happens all different ways.

    It's just vile to me that those little kids are now going to have their parentage exploited. Maybe they didn't know they weren't the biological children of these people....should they find out through the media? Disgusting.

    Disgusting? Get over yourself. It's been more than 15 years since Doug Smith outed Arthur Ashe as an AIDS sufferer. This doesn't even make a blip on the disgusting meter.

    She's just the girl who said that he was the one...but the kid is not his son.

    Get it right. It's "the chair is not my son."

    And for the record, I'm with 21 on this.
