Because there’s no male figure in the home is deeply misogynist and sexist
Not trying to be “that guy”, but there are male single parent homes too.
And those typically aren’t the ones with stigma attached to them. Are…
Ok but that wasn’t the point if the post. And I don’t think two parents of opposite genders make a difference. Children need a community of loving adults. Nuclear families are far to small to really nurture individuals in my opinion since we’re deviating away from the point of the post.
"All single parent homes get a lot o stigma" sure thing @antarcticanking but there’s no worldwide industry and network specifically targeting and trafficking from single FATHERS. There aren’t major “public health” campaigns that slut shame single fathers. When white supremacist “scientists” pathologized single parents & offspring as “mentally unfit” and a literal danger to humanity, guess which half of the gender binary they went in on.
Oh, I KNOW all single parents gets stigmatized. Us Developing World(tm) bastards get classified as orphans just by living in a single parent household, even if both our parents and entire family are still alive. Which (to build on howtobeterrell’s point) is especially convenient if one wants to wipe out our birth cultures that have a much healthier and community-oriented approach to raising children than the dumbshit Western über-heteronormative capitalist nuclear family model. Tobias Hübinette wrote a great piece on how this model purposefully colonizes and destroys non-Western communities.
But this "ALL single parented homes are stigmatized" is just derailing. The assault on single motherhood (especially black and brown motherhood) is unprecedented.
I love that hyunsu is being mourned somewhere.
Somewhere on earth and everywhere on Bastard Planet. We will never forget him and others like him murdered by their “saviors.”
#World Adoptee Revolt
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.
