i’ve been procrastinating on studying for midterms by researching canonization and patronage, and i learned that St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the only canonized First Nations saint, is a patron saint of loss of parents. it’s probably because she lost her parents at the age of 4 to a smallpox epidemic, but i keep wavering between it seeming really fitting for Split Feathers in a way and it being a cruel joke of the Catholic Church
Damn, wouldn’t put it past them. The Catholic Church has instituted and overseen child trafficking in nearly every region they held power, with the most concentrated kidnappings definitely being in North America against First Nations peoples, and in continental Europe against Romani peoples.
White Savior Industrial Complex.
For the third time: What is the number of adoptoraptors? Still not seeing anything but vehement snarling that “it’s a number that wants all 136.000,000!”. Which is an avoidance of quantification—
As to the ‘orphans = Africa = AIDS’ bit, that’s you projecting a[n ir]rational fear of bigotry. From UNICEF—
"This definition contrasts with concepts of orphan in many industrialized countries, where a child must have lost both parents to qualify as an orphan. UNICEF and numerous international organizations adopted the broader definition of orphan in the mid-1990s as the AIDS pandemic began leading to the death of millions of parents worldwide, leaving an ever increasing number of children growing up without one or more parents. So the terminology of a ‘single orphan’ – the loss of one parent – and a ‘double orphan’ – the loss of both parents – was born to convey this growing crisis."—
But I’m glad your posts are blowing up. Hopefully, fewer people adopt.
*pops popcorn* Look at the derailing bigot whose racism and ignorance of the subject at hand runs so deep that they can do nothing but regurgitate the bullshit being fed them.
"wants all 136.000,000!" Um lol, talk about “projection” and “avoidance of qualification.” [YOU versus the POINT.gif]
Or rather, false qualifications YOU pulled out of your armchair-flattened, faux erudite ass in your adherence to your precious white savior delusions.
Shouldn’t the whole reportage on global waiting lists (to say nothing or skyrocketing child prices) for frustrated adoptoraptors have tipped you off in the first place, much less by your third time around? Oh well. Search my adoption industry and ethnocide content if ever you quit chasing your shitstained tail and start educating yourself.
"What gets me is the callousness and utter lack of empathy of white Western people. Over and over and over again, they show that they cannot put themselves in the shoes of people they’ve been taught to dehumanise. The derailing arguments on a discussion of children being ripped away from their mothers and sold to people like them are absolutely sickening."
