Thread: Half siblings

    Half siblings

    why do we consider it one way and not the other?

    isn't a half symmetrical to another half?

    is it because they most likely didn't live w/ you and you don't know them much?

    anybody here leaves out the word "half" when they talk about their half sibling?

    I don't call them half anything. Just brothers and sisters.

    Yes I don't call anybody half.. Half implies less than... I don't refer to people's siblings as half...

    My father had daughters from his first marriage and no one but me considers them as family even, far more half-siblings.


    I refer to them as my "sisters" but I doh really perceive dem as such. I just say dat because is de right thing to say.

    Are they your father's children?

    I think I would perceive them differently if they were my mother's children.

    matter or convenience eh... well it seems we have mixed views. growing up all i heard was half this and half that. both my parents refer to their half siblings as such. not because they weren't close... which isn't always the case, but probably to make it known that they didn't share the same mother.

    .. I only like to associate with his sensible side.. so is half... My sisters refer to him as brother...

    My mother refers to her half sister as sisters. I know when i said this was my sister though people would say for *my mother name?* and then we would have to explain so I guess it easier for them to say Half one time *shrugs*
