The fact that I have to put my dad on FAFSA even though he doesn’t pay for my school anymore is precisely why I’m so damn broke all the time ;_;
I spent the first few years after I left my adopted family’s house only taking one or two classes a term because I couldn’t get her signature on her tax info for FAFSA. The first term that I had left, I tried to do things the usual way, but she refused to sign the papers unless I came back.
That’s so fucking infuriating. They really need to update their methods of calculating whether or not we can afford school.
They set that up and put an age limit of 24 because the assumption that mommy and daddy are paying for school up to that point is super convenient. They get to pretend people without parents, or with estranged parents, don’t exist and so they don’t have to give these nonexistent people money. You can tell the government you’re independent from your parents so you can file without their info, but it’s a lot of work, and pretty nonsensical for an adult to do. Meanwhile, they can explain away this gatekeeping by telling anyone who asks that it’s to keep rich people from cheating the system. Like they ever care about THAT.
i want kids but i dont wanna be pregnant or give birth but i dont wanna adopt either because i want them to be mine do you see my problem

"i dont wanna adopt either because i want them to be mine"
freakin’ bio spawn
lol these pitiful, perpetually confused bio spawn… no wonder the greatest stories have always been about us and not their excruciatingly unimaginative, boring selves.
Srsly these mundanes think the “ingratitude” adoptees have for the rampant white supremacist woman-hating fuckery that is the adoption industry somehow translates into our parents (adoptive AND birth) not being our own? That our place isn’t just as valid if not more so than bio spawned offspring, given how we’re “chosen” and the fact that there’s FAR greater demand for us than there is available supply
We are children of multiple worlds, but average minds that hate complexity would rather we belong to none, like we aren’t stigmatized enough already.
OP needs to do humanity a favor and go play in traffic.
