"Half siblings aren't real siblings"

A friend and I got in a petty argument. She was talking about how when she was growing up, her older siblings would pester her, having 5 older (half-siblings) I laughed, and said "I know what you mean." She scoffed and said "No, you really don't..you're basically an only child. You have half siblings, not real siblings." I did my best to correct her, and tell her there is blood, I've known them forever, etc, but she still insists, I have no idea what real siblings are like. I know this is very petty, but it kind of ticked me off.

My mom feels the same way. I talk about my daughter's 4 half brothers and she says they aren't really her brothers.

That would tick me off as well...my baby brother is my brother. Hell, even my stepbrothers are my brothers.

Family is family.

My half siblings were never as close as my full sibling even though 4 of us were raised in the same home. I think it is different for everyone though.

She's dumb. Dh has two half siblings, but none of them have ever refered to them as half. He doesn't say "my half sister" he says "my sister".

Tell her to shut her face! All of my siblings are half, that doesn't mean they are anything less then a real sibling! My two oldest have a half brother (my youngest son) *gasp*

Sounds like bullshit BM would say.

She doesn't consider my DS as SS's real brother, because he's only got one shared parent. She pressures him into calling him his HALF brother and not just brother.

Yet she has a younger DS as well, and refers to him as SS's real brother "because he was conceived in marriage."

Yeahhhhh that still doesn't make your husband SS's father.

Totally flawed logic.

This....

Gee, I wonder what she would think of our kids. Both adopted from different homes. A closer brother and sister than the two of them though...can't be found.
