The misguided #ShoutYourAdoption as a rebuttal to #ShoutYourAbortion on both Twitter and Facebook has brought out the angry in me, and deep disappointment too. It doesn’t seem that anyone participating thought about the impact to the one adopted. Did any say: Is this going to stereotype adoptees? Is this damaging to them? What is the impact on the adoptee? Did intent vs. impact even enter their consciousness? To me, it doesn’t seem that anyone participating thought of the potential impact on the child, only what it could do for them.
