hey adoptee & foster kid allies!

I’m been getting mad shit from antiblack abuse apologists people trying to justify the actions of Stacey Conner, that white American mother who gave away her adopted 5-year old Haitian child and claimed she suffered "domestic abuse" at his hands.

Of course they claim to be unbiased fact-checkers in search of “the whole story,” all the while remaining conveniently ignorant of all pertinent facts to the growing epidemic of adoptive child trading abuse and in the U.S.,

From When Children Are Traded, published November 20, 2013 in The New York Times:

[TRIGGER WARNING: sexual assault, child abuse] This is “private re-homing,” something that once meant finding a new home for a dog that barked too much. Now it refers to families recycling their adopted children, often through Internet postings.

There are commonly no courts involved, no lawyers, no social service agencies and no vetting of the new parents. There’s less formality than the transfer of a car.

Private re-homing of adoptive children was explored in a devastating five-part investigative series this fall from Reuters. The reporters found that on one Yahoo message board, a child was offered for re-homing on average once a week (Yahoo has since closed the board). Most of the children ranged in age from 6 to 14 and had been adopted abroad, but some were American-born.

When one troubled Russian girl was 12 years old, she was re-homed three times within six months and told Reuters that, by the time she was 13, a boy at one of the homes had sex with her — and then urinated on her.

A Chinese girl crippled by polio ended up in a home where a woman with an explosive temper was eventually overseeing 18 children. The girl says that the woman confiscated her leg brace, which she needed to walk. And, according to court records, the woman, as a form of punishment, once ordered her to dig a hole in the backyard — for her own grave.

“You die here and no one will know,” the Chinese girl quoted the woman as saying. “No one will find you.”

But instead of reading Reuters or the New York Times, these antiblack racists “objective” bloggers keep relying on that one Good Housekeeping magazine interview (LOL of all sources).

post-buster, which exclusively promotes itself as a “fact checking” tumblr, is the most recent culprit in the vilification of an abused 5-year old Black adopted orphan. They claim coverage of his mistreatment was  “exaggerated” and without “context,” and they focus on J.s “behavioral problems that made the mother fear for the safety of her other children.” They FAIL to acknowledge that the “attachment” abuse J. was subjected to for months where a child must ask for necessities like food and water, was the same kind that murdered 4-year old Cassandra Killpack, another Black adoptee branded with “reactive attachment disorder” and “emotional problems.”

post-buster encourages others to call them out when they fuck up. So I leave it to the allies of adoptees to step up now and do so.

FUCK. Just holy FUCK? I read your posts about RAD and the linked articles. I had to stop about halfway to throw up and I just cried for the rest of it. How do these people exist? How can these things happen? HOW CAN THEY BE LET NEAR CHILDREN? I am trans and my partner and I would very much like children one day and I would quite like to adopt. I'm sorry, i don't really know what to say, this just really distresses me. Is there anything we can do?

Hey littlemissgataki.

This child advocacy organzation does a good job of answering the "how can this happen" and "how people who propagate life threatening torture are let near children" questions.

They have a simple but text heavy site. If you’re truly serious about adopting, I strongly recommend reading and processing ALL of it.

As for what you can do practically:

➊  Find out if your state/county’s tax dollars are going to any “RAD” programs or practitioners. If so, raise hell. Your fellow taxpayers probably wouldn’t be happy if they learn their money’s going to programs that withhold food, water, sleep, education, and oxygen from children, eh?

➋  Drive this into your brain and the brains of as many other people you can find remotely interested in adoption: There is no empirical scientific support for the popular notion that children with attachment problems grow up to become psychopaths or otherwise prey on society.
Practitioners of this torturous “attachment” BS sucker people in with claims that their “treatments” are the only kind that will work to keep a RAD child from turning into a knife-wielding sociopath.

➌  And of course listen to adoptees and support us. One of the few fellow survivors of RAD “therapy/parenting” I’ve been able to find is terriblegurl, who was told that her being gay is a symptom of attachment disorder.

"My friend who grew up in foster care has so many issues with self-destructive behavior and self-esteem because if she didn’t act like a golden retriever, her foster family would label her “troubled” and have her moved.

Basically if kids act like kids they’re called “troubled”, so they’re taught that they have to be this impossible perfect inhuman thing up to the point where either they’re lucky enough to find a good family, or the stress of this unattainable expectation leads them to a place where they actually are “troubled” (I hate that word so much by the way)…"

whereinthewarehouse, in response to “U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing Temper Tantrum

It bears knowing that this Haitian child was branded “attachment disordered" and subjected to an intense regimen of "attachment parenting" in which children are forced to ask for basic necessities like water and food.

One of the leading proponents of this brand of “parenting” is American adoption expert Nancy Thomas, whose standard for good adoptive parents is as follows:

"If you don’t know if a parent’s a really awesome parent or not, we have a little test. You look at the child. If the child has their head and their arms and legs still attached, that’s it! It’s an awesome mom, an awesome dad. And you know, it’s just proof right there. Because if they weren’t an awesome mom and dad, they would have ripped the child’s head off by now, or at least an arm."

Illegal over-drugging of Lakota children.

The use of such powerful anti-psychotic pharmaceutical drugs on Indian children by the State of South Dakota has, in fact, increased by over 1300% since the year 2000! Due to this, and other problems with state-run foster care, when these Indian children “age out” of the state foster care system in the State of South Dakota at the age of 18, over 63 percent of these children are, by the time they are 20 years old, either homeless, in prison, or dead.  Children should not be drugged into submission and made to feel like zombies because they have been taken from their families and their communities. This must stop.

Please Keep Sharing and become a Member at http://lakota.cc/1kvf8ka to help create a foster care system run by Lakota, for Lakota and end the corrupt practices of the state of South Dakota.The children of the nine Lakota tribes of South Dakota, over the past ten-year period, have been ten times more likely to be taken by the state than White children. Every year since 2001, an average of 742 Lakota children have been seized and forcibly removed from, not only their Lakota parents, but, indeed, from their entire Lakota tribe and culture by the State of South Dakota and “placed” in all-White foster care settings. Approximately 10,000 such Lakota children have, therefore, been essentially kidnapped from their Indian culture since the beginning of this century. Although Lakota children make up less than 13 percent of the child population of the State of South Dakota, they make up over 60 percent of all of the children presently in state foster care institutions and non-native homes in the State of South Dakota. Lakota foster care children are indeed “money-makers” for the State of South Dakota, which classifies ALL Lakota children as “Special Needs Children”, thereby authorizing the State of South Dakota to collect up to $79,000 per child, amounting to some $65 million in federal monies per year for the state.

Hey

Psstt

The guy who invented the theory that vaccines cause autism had his medical license revoked for it

thats ridiculous

they took it away because he came up with a seemingly plausible theory?

They took it away because other scientists have been unable to reproduce his results, his results were made up, he didn’t even get approved by an ethics committee, and now he’s risking the health and lives of a whole bunch of people

Let’s not forget he actually admitted all this himself by retracting his data.

Oh and the fact that basing a study on 12 participants is a fucking joke if you know a goddamned thing about statistics and designing scientific studies.

Also a fun note: these studies mostly became popular because of Jenny McCarthy, who claimed that her son’s autism had been caused by vaccines.

As it turns out, her son never even had autism. She claims that she “cured” his autism with things like a gluten-free diet and therapy, but it’s far more likely that he was misdiagnosed… and that she ran with it and started ruining people’s lives with it. 

tl;dr - The anti-vaxx movement is built on lies and misinformation on top of lies and misinformation, and while this might be a laughable thing in other circumstances, this particular movement KILLS CHILDREN.

All of the above.

lavenderpenny asked:

hey again! i hope you're well :-) so yes i've been reading through your reactive attachment disorder tag, i see RAD be attributed to a lot of murdered orphans by their adopted parents and from what i can see it seems to be a readily used excuse for abusive parents defending their actions? It's kind of confusing to me about whether it's a legitimate issue that gets misused by adoptive parents or a fabricated condition used against children who don't do exactly what their adoptive parents (...)
(…) expect them to. i’d like to know more about it if you have any resources or wouldn’t mind explaining it yourself? i hope my question makes sense!
Reactive Attachment Disorder (AKA Attachment Disorder) IS actually a legitimate condition.
But it’s ONLY applicable to children about 3 and under, entails completely nonviolent, natural responses, and is arguably not even a disorder (but Westerners gotta pathologize everything that isn’t 100% nuclear fam heteronormative, so). It means that if a child goes through a lot of displacement (orphanages, foster care etc.), they get confused as to who their primary caregivers are, so sometimes they attach to complete strangers instead of their parental guardians.
But the pseudoscientific “attachment disorder” that adoptees & foster kids get branded with is commonly referred to as “serial killer syndrome.” Western adoption “experts” compare us to Adolf Hitler and Ted Bundy, which (given that the majority of adoptees worldwide are not white, Aryan, or male) can get grating, yes? Then there’s the fact that the “treatments” for RAD/AD are actual child abuse & torture.
I’ve gotten a bunch of new followers over recent flurry from some of my posts that got hijacked by Well-Intentioned Western(tm) spawn on RAD. And to them, I must say:
If you really are so irredeemably shitbrained to believe in that latter definition of attachment disorder, unfollow me right the fuck now. Seriously, that level of gullibility poses a danger. X

"While the purported purpose of the bill is to reduce the number of children in orphanages, the opposite will most certainly result. According to Kathryn Joyce in The Child Catchers intercountry adoptions actually increase the number of children living in institutions: “Children who were not unparented or homeless before end up becoming institutionalized as a direct result of orphanages setting up shop in poor areas.”

The adoption industry helps create these institutions, often funded in large part, by grateful adoptive parents. As we’ve seen in the Ethiopian case, practitioners may falsely claim children are orphans in order to line their pockets with American money.

Furthermore, increasing intercountry adoptions runs the risk that children will be placed in unsafe homes where they may be killed, abused, or dumped into another unsafe home, as the recent series of stories on “re-homing” has shown us. It also diverts money which could be used to help children remain within their families."

[Birth Mother] First Mother Forum: Encouraging intercountry adoptions with hard cash

this article starts with the line ‘when half the faculty at Harvard and Boston College Law Schools endorse a bill that encourages poor countries to take children from their mothers and send them to the United States for adoption, you’d think something was amiss’ and it’s probably a sign i read too many (or just enough) adoption blogs that my first thought was ‘i thought that was the whole point of international adoption’.
