From an ethical stand point how do you feel about LGBT folk using sperm donors to conceive? From an Australian perspective - the adoption process is difficult and lengthy and if using overseas adoption (from countries that have adoption agreements with Aus) could potentially be more expensive than a donor.

The accessibility of donors appears easier than adoption and assuming there are no fertility issues - garenteed.

I worry that bringing a child into a same-sex couple via a donor is selfish and not in the best interests of the child. The idea of choosing the child's genetic traits from a list of donors just doesn't sit right with me.

After learning you were donor-conceived did you feel resentment towards your social parents? Do you feel displaced in your identity? Does having so many half siblings that you'll never know make you feel 'incomplete' somehow?
