Eh, I think people want this dynasty to be over.

At the very least, any mothers could claim father points and vice versa, and so this proposal would have ended the dynasty, but not before we process a few handfuls of CfJs to unravel the other implications.

I think the main problem with this is it would break a lot of things in the ruleset right now.  The laying eggs rule specifies that a newly laid egg cluster has one mother and zero fathers, which would become a contradiction with this.  Fathers would gain points both for being fathers and for the number of times they fertilized an egg.  The naming of the medusas assumes that the medusa has only one mother. Etc. etc.
