By grandson of a p.o.s. - United States - Somers
Today, I attended the reading of my grandfather's will. I didn't expect to receive anything, since his side of the family had always ostracized me for being born out of wedlock. I did get something: $3,500, on the binding condition that I use a portion of it to get a vasectomy. FML

Why not just go to a sperm bank and donate a lot of sperm and if you ever want a kid go get some. It also gives you as many one night stands as you'd like without worrying about getting them pregnant.

Oops. I skim read first half of the FML, now this sounds terribly insensitive. But sure, if you were ostracized, then don't try to change yourself for the sake of a relatively small amount. Learn to love yourself. You did nothing wrong OP :)

Just a few, actually

The world is so over populated, it wouldn't be a bad thing if the right people just stopped having children. At least for a while. When I read 3's comment, I thought it was being applied to this day and age, not the beginning of humanity...

#102- While that does sound logical in at least some frame of mind, there would be no ethical or objective way to determine who the "right" people would be.

Not me, either, #28.

And, frankly, many kids don't need their parents. To exist, yes, but there are so many inept adults, that it's really not worth making a whole new human just to put a child through so much idiocy.

People who can parent. Just cause someone can become a parent means they can meet a child's emotional/psychological needs. So many adults don't realize that having a child means you're sacrificing your personal time and continue living as before.

I agree #128/#129
There are a lot of people who don't deserve kids and have them and some of the ones who will appreciate the full title of parenthood to the fullest and can't have them. the world is a cruel place. But that is neither here nor there in this FML we don't know what OPs view points on children are all we know is in order to get his money he must prevent himself from reproducing. Maybe the grandfather wanted to stop another child being born out of wedlock?

Terrible OP. It happens so much now a days that you think people would be more understanding. Some people will hold on to anything they can, just so they feel they are better than others.

On the bright side, I'm pretty sure the requirement to spend that money on a vasectomy cannot be enforced legally. Congrats on your $3,500, dude!

I don't know about about NY state but in KY you can accept the money with the conditions, after the money is yours they cannot take it away from you. It would only be your word/honor holding you to meet the conditions.
