Odds and Ends

I didn't call them *just* a social construct. I just said that they have very little actual meaning as anything else.
I mean, what actually separates a close blood relation from everyone else? You might look kind of similar and will probably have similar genetic conditions and predispositions. You shouldn't have children with them. Anything else? There can't be much, because genetics have a rather narrow effect on most people's lives.
I like families. But genetics don't make a family, and a lack of genetic relations don't make a non-family.
