i dislike the pretense of artificial and forced families as construed as legitimate. that's also a breeding ground for deception and lies. no stepparent is really going to care about a child that is not biologically theirs as much as their own biological child. there is no evolutionary imperative to do so. so this fake idea and pretense that stepparents are normal is abnormal. some may be decent people but i would say it's a risky situation most of the time because it is unnatural and puts a vulnerable child at great risk of harm, especially by a human because they are so diabolical in their schemes and unlike animals that may just kill the offspring of another male and get it over with, a human will use another child for the most heinous and perverted purposes as well as using them as some type of experiment with no ethics at all because it's a bonus to be able to exercise power over another life completely. and then it just produces damaged individuals for the next generation. i was very offended, repulsed and it was perversion of truth how he claimed to be my father when he was anything but a real father and he actually isn't my real father either to boot. a stranger who would have no interest or be neutral would have been a godsend in comparison. it was so obscene how in public, especially in church, there was this scene painted as if everything was legit and this was a normal family but it was furthest from the truth. how he seemed to get off on the one hand of claiming to be my father and his fetishizing of people as owned objects then treating me something else entirely behind four walls. that fuker wasn't actually related to me in any way real way, shape or form. society is fake how it just embraces pretenses and labels as legitimate and real.
