I'm on grindr looking for trannies and traps to fuck. No luck yet but some fat 30 year old dude said he would give me $50 if he could suck my dick. Should I go for it? I feel grossed out even thinking about it I need the money for my 23&me test to prove that I'm not just an amerimutt.
23 and me creates a database which they own. So don't do it. I'm not some right wing conspiracy theorist, in fact I'm a liberal Jew. So this isn't some crazy shit. They keep the information and it can be hacked or they could even sell your information. What's worse is the idea of the government deciding to access all our information. As a Jew you can understand why I'd worry about what the government could do with that information
So you're going to give the government your DNA indirectly? Brilliant.
Get a private test ordered by your doctor under a John Doe. This isn't illegal to do. The information could be used for future healthcare reasons. For example African Americans respond differently to blood pressure medications. Knowing some of that shit could save your mutt life
All the cheaper ones keep the databases. 23 isn't the worst about how it handles the data, but it's still sketch. Ancestry DNA is the worst of the big ones. Then there are the smaller ones. Don't use them. Some just outright publish the info with file numbers instead of names, but it wouldn't be hard at all to track down who is who. That's how they recently caught a serial killer. A relative of his got his DNA done up for one of those websites as part of a church activity.
If you get your DNA tested don't just send it in with a check or credit card with a return address. Go through someone else and John Doe.
It goes through whatever lab your doctor uses. It could be the same lab, doesn't matter. They're pretty detailed. If you ran mine even 23 and me would come our confused. I'm part mountain Jew. That shit isn't going to be in their databases. I guess they'd call it semitic, but beyond the Cohen Gene they won't be able to place it. They just recently managed to identify native Americans from Polynesian and i believe they still can't tell Blackfoot from Potawatomi
