American mother on her 12-year-old adopted daughter.
From When Children Are Traded, published November 20, 2013 in The New York Times.
I remember reading the Reuters investigative report on foreign adoptions gone wrong this year - there are white people who repeatedly adopt foreign children or buy them underground online. I still think about that article every day, and this quote or something similar to it appeared in many parents’ mouths - that they wouldn’t mind having someone kill their children than have to spend another minute with them.
But to racist Americans trying to silence adoptees and POC when we shed light on yet another case of adopted child abandonment, this growing cesspool of child trafficking and abuse counts as “POSSIBLY NOTHING”
there’s an armored convoy about tossing tear gas now so much for that fucking “resolution” earlier today

I frequently fuck this up myself, but this is important in adult sex education. (Or really, any age sex education.) If you go “LOL holy shit you don’t know that about your own body?!?” to someone’s question about their body, you are not encouraging them to learn more. You are strongly encouraging them to never ask you a question again.
If someone believes that they can’t get pregnant during their period or that it’s abnormal that they have a lot of hair around their genitals, the correct answers are “it’s less likely, but you can still get pregnant” and “nope, it’s totally normal.” The correct answer is not rolling your eyes and going “OH MY GAWD LOOK AT THE STATE OF SEX ED IN THIS COUNTRY.”
I’m all for rolling your eyes at the sex ed system, but when you do it directly after someone asks a question, that’s not just a political observation, that’s an insult. And very few people want to ask delicate questions about their genitalia to someone who might insult them for it.
