I’m sure we are all guilty of this to a certain extent, but is it really necessary to point out when an adoptee speaks – that not all adoptees are the same, think the same, have the same experience?
If you think it is necessary, then may I ask why?
Is it because you didn’t like that adoptee’s views on adoption, because it doesn’t match your view?
Is it some bias, or internalized belief you have about adoptees, that makes us different from you? If yes, please, do explain how we are different.
Do you fear that other people listening, don’t have the level of intelligence that you have, to know that everyone is unique, and has their own feelings based on their lived experience?
Please tell me why you need to point that out in the comments every time an adoptee speaks…
