Why parental DNA tests are important

Post by ladislav »

There was one expat who was visiting his GF ( not a bar girl) in Cebu regularly and of course, doing his thing with her. He would then go back to the US to work, sending her an allowance.
Then, the girl announced that she was pregnant. Overjoyed, he arranged for the childbirth, then began to support his kid ( and the mother).
However, after two years of visiting his GF and his boy, he became somewhat suspicious. The boy's hair was jet black. It shouldn't be in a Eurasian kid.
He asked the girl to have the child take a DNA test. She initially balked at it, but he insisted. The DNA came back " no match". He confronted the girl by email, and she stopped responding.
It turned out that while he was in the US working, she was doing some other boy and then passed the child onto the man.
These schemes and scams are so basic , brazen, and raw that one would not even think of people being able to pull them off. And they are also easy to uncover, which leaves both parties rather unhappy when it happens.
Dumb, dumber, dumbest. Both of them. Poor kid, though.

Debateable. I have three Mestiza daughters, the first one has dark brown hair, almost auburn. The last one is dark blonde. The second daughter, however, has jet black hair. But her features are very much a carbon copy of my own; pointed nose, square face, the same eyebrows, the same thickness of hair and she even has my hands, broad and with thick fingers for a girl her age. Her skin is fair and pale, she looks a bit like Snowwhite, with the contrast between the pitch black hair and the pale skin.

I've seen quite a few mestizo kids with the hair color of their Asian parent; it's the lack of 'foreign' features, however, that'd a dead giveaway. If you cannot the face of a "foreigner's kid" from the faces of his or her classmates, then you can be pretty sure it's not that foreigner's biological kid. Even if the kid would get the dreaded "Filipino nose", you'd still see the shape of the eyes, the shape of the lips, not to mention height and body size and a slightly fairer skin tone.

Most of what makes humans different from apes is on the long X chromosome. Other chromosomes tend to control things at cell or organ level, where we resemble other animals. Girls have one X chromosome from each parent. Boys get their X chromosome from the mother and a tiny Y chromosome from the father. Thus girls temd to mix of mother and father, while boys tend to strongly ressemble mother and mother's father (maternal grandfather), with only a small resemblance to their own father. It is this not uncommon for boys to look nothing like their real father. Boys tend to pick up their personal character from the man or men who raise them, whether real father, step father, uncle, grandfather, etc.

A dime a dozen scams like this you're right. Too bad for the kid though, you're right.
