I'm autistic and a Chinese transracial, transnational adoptee. This fucking disgusts me. It also lays bare what many of us already know - the adoption industry is fueled by global white supremacy in the guise of white saviorism, and it's grotesquely ableist and capitalist.

i'm well aware of that, but telling Black & brown people whose lives are directly endangered by this shit that they shouldn't talk about it or be upset is not! the way to go!

Literally saving lives. They did this in Louisiana few years ago and saved so many lives. Co-conspirators. Comrades. We donโ€™t need โ€œalliesโ€. We need folks there in the thick of it.

it may not change anything in your white life, but he's directly empowering people who will go out and kill. explicitly calling for genocidal killings in response to protests cannot, actually, be ignored. this is a bad tweet and you should delete it.

i think it's good to be open with kids, generally, especially since they might be chronically ill now or later in life. kids understand sickness, being tired, being in pain, etc - it's just a matter of explaining that sometimes it can't be fixed quickly/easily/at all.

uh, i feel like i should jump in here, since nobody else has, to point out that that book is very racist and also doesn't address or deal with the legacy of chattel slavery *at all* despite obviously using it for worldbuilding purposes

haha just kidding. this isn't "irrational" anxiety this is a reasonable response to a society in which even the mildest critique of ableism is seen as petty melodramatic whining!
