And this one that aligns itself with the creepy comment:
And maybe even this one, that uses k-10094 to censor me:
I also want to continue to make A.S.S. jokes about Adopter Savior Syndrome as an urgent health epidemic that should be interrogated and probed by an entire task force of scholars, healthcare professionals, policy makers, and concerned citizens. I also want to call White adoptive parents to join Adoptees in resisting systemic oppression by organizing groups such as Adopter Network United for Solidarity (A.N.U.S) or Families Embracing Collective Active Love (F.E.C.A.L). However, I am guessing this will only inflame, so I shall instead share some context to the importance of A.S.S. awareness.
As a member of the adoption community who is committed to loving and sustainable multiracial families, I am deeply troubled by the current trend of Adopters and incompetent healthcare professionals diagnosing adopted children with attachment disorders that further diminish the Adoptee's agency, while re-directing attention from systemic oppression to an individual pathology. Therefore, both for my personal liberation and in solidarity with my fellow Adoptees, I constructed Adopter Savior Syndrome. A.S.S. is actually an acute diagnosis of a larger societal power dynamic that positions White adoptive parents as agents of racial violence against their adopted children of color.
Adopter Savior Syndrome is not intended to be an accusation against individual adoptive parents. Thus, I invite you to put down your defenses. I am not calling you an A.S.S.
