flyingbuckleys:

i have made a post like this but here it goes *deep breath*: 

TRANSETHNICITY IS A REAL THING IN ADOPTION TERMS. 

it is when a child of one ethnicity is adopted by parents of another ethnicity.

white people just hijacked this term from adoptees and are using it for their racist motives. ‘transethnic’ is a real term. you’re just using it wrong. 

^Individuals who grasp this simple fact reaaaally shouldn’t be as rare as they are.

Young Dad Wins Back Custody of Child Adopted Without Consent

26-year-old Jeremiah Sampson waged a three-year court battle that forced him to drop out of college to pay for legal expenses in gaining custody of his child.
Sampson drove five hours to Rolla, Mo., once or twice a week for more than six months to challenge the adoption in court. The adoptive parents threw a towel over the baby’s head in court, refusing to let him look at his birth father.
Born and raised in Coweta, Oklahoma, Sampson had four older brothers, three sisters and a mother who worked two jobs to support them all. He didn’t meet his father until he was 13 and hasn’t seen him much since. “I would never do that to my own flesh and blood,” Sampson said. “I would never walk away from my own child.”
Sampson is now suing the adoption agency for violating his parental rights by going ahead with the placement even after he objected.

quiltbagging asked:

Hi brandx, I'm a transracial and transnational adoptee and recently I've started thinking about what this means for my identity. And thanks to your blog I learned that my brother (adopted transnationally/transracially from a diff country than myself) was diagnosed with RAD. I don't know what to think about all this. (1/?)

Thank you so much for writing, always glorious to hear from fellow international transracial adoptees. And I’m sorry for my delayed response, but this was very hard for me to write —

There is no easy way to say this, but your brother’s life is in danger. I’m a RAD survivor, and despite there being thousands of kids all throughout the Western world who’ve been subjected to the treatment purporting to treat this disorder that violates every human rights charter & childrens rights convention on earth, our rate of survival is almost nil, particularly among transracial/national adoptees.

quiltbagging PLEASE message me with your brother’s age, your country of residence (I’m assuming both of you live in the same nation), and any other of crucial info of his such as other diagnosed disorders (real or perceived) so I’ll be able to assist you much more and help ensure his safety.

99% of media portrayals of adopted kids

  • scenario 1: no problems ever! graciously rescued from a broken home/impoverished or war-torn country! unquestioningly grateful and indebted to their adoptive family! has nothing but 100% good things to say about being adopted, all the time!
  • scenario 2: absolutely miserable. aggressively resentful of adopted family and of their adoption. will petulantly respond to even the most gentle of requests with proclamations of "you're not my real family!" usually a rebel/delinquent/generally maladjusted and sometimes even violent.

if you think you are unattractive just remember you look like your ancestors and hey all of them got laid

but what if you were adopted

I’m not up on the whole genetics thing

but

if you’re adopted you still have to have biological ancestors right

No we don’t. We spawn fully formed at adoption agencies from miracles and moonshine.

As an adoptee i can confirm obscurity-bizarre’s statement. Also sometimes there are rainbows involved.

We also come fully stocked with Chosen One© prophecies and  post-racial/feminist utopias in fulfilling lifelong roles as living, breathing bridges between rich white folks and the classes/races/tribes/nations they oppress! ♥♥
