Some ads on SMO are just downright funny, and a bit scary considering the subject matter at hand. Copied and pasted directly from the classifieds with snarky commentary from yours truly:
- 2nd time surrogant available for August. More disturbing than the fact that she can‘t even spell surrogate (in her ad, she misspelled it twice), is the fact that she has already been a surrogate and she still can’t spell the word.
- i am 29 years old my bday 12-10-78 i am 5ft 2in iway 150 i work daily. You work, but did you pass elementary school English? Or, did you mean that you work out daily, since within the context of what you’ve written, you just said that you way 150. Pounds, I’m assuming.
- I am ready to begin medications asap and would like to time conception
for any time between the end of September and October to avoid delivery
from interfering with summer vacation. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I could cut this one to pieces in so many different ways, but I can’t stop laughing long enough to do so.
- Wish to be surrogant! Though
I’ve never had a child yet, I look forwad to being pregnant.No health
issues. I am medically tested and have been educated about the surrogancy role. Aaarrrrgggh, again with the surrogant! You’ve been “educated” about the surrogacny role, but has no one told you how to spell it, either? Most importantly, it’s probably a good idea to know that you can handle a pregnancy both emotionally and physically before you carry a pregnancy for others. Some women don’t have health issues until they become pregnant. It’s too risky for most intended parents to work with someone who has never been pregnant before, agencies usually require that a woman has given birth to and be raising at least one child, and a clinic would likely never accept you in the first place.
What you SHOULD state upfront is how you feel about race if it makes a difference to you. It’s understandable if you’re looking for a traditional surrogate, but if you’re a Caucasian intended parent and you only want a Caucasian gestational surrogate, say it in your ad and don’t waste my time. You sho’ don’t want us coloreds rubbin’ nothin’ off on yo’ chirrens.
