Transracial Adoptees, Permanent Homes, Forever Families, and Their Home They Are Forced to Leave

Posted by Jack Stephens on September 5, 2007

Sume blogs about the intracacies of what is really home and family while being a transracial adoptee:

In the case of domestic adoption, can more be done to keep families in tact? What roles do racism and class play in creating and perpetuating environments that feed children into system? Have we as a society become too reliant upon adoption as a solution because of lack of a better one?

And let us not forget that adoption is an industry regardless of it’s mutually beneficial appearance. As an industry, adoption has created as many or more problems as it has presumably solved. On one hand, it gives children to parents who want them, but on another, it feeds and sustains a voracious baby market. As potential adoptive parents seek cheaper, quicker ways to acquire children those only too willing to provide that without much thought to ethics will appear. Adoption as an industry will do what’s necessary to stay alive.

“Oh domestic violence. How funny arte thee?”

Posted by Jack Stephens on September 5, 2007

Elizabeth writes about her experience while listening to two guys laugh about domestic violence perpetrated on a Black woman while she was on a ferry ride on the blog All Girl Army:

What year is this? Why would anyone ever laugh at a woman getting beaten up for no fucking reason. Are you serious?! and then they laughed harder cause she was African American! Seriously?! How fucked up is that.

Why aren’t the men in this world being taught that this isn’t funny, and it isn’t right?! We seriously need to get most of the men out their educated on domestic violence issues.
