Yes, this. Not especially interested in handing over genetic material coupled with a boatload of unblinded, individually identifiable personal information, particularly without any meaningful ability to govern the purposes for which it is subsequently used, or withdraw my consent to such uses. That is a poor privacy practice. And while I do not have any lineal descendants, if I did, it would be a pretty direct invasion of their privacy as well - about which they were never consulted and to which they never had any opportunity to give consent.

Also, it is mostly bullshit.
