Yay! 73adoptee73 is back. She’s come out of retirement–at least a little bit–to write on the Feigenholtz-Mitchell scam in Illinois. She also gives us her analysis of AdoptionLand and why she has reassessed her role as a activist. I wholeheartedly agree with her on both counts. . Honestly ,why do any of us continue with this–well–shit in our lives. It’s great to have Triona back, but she’s got a sobering message with 73adoptee Returns! But Nobody is Coming Back for Left Behind Illinois Adoptees.
Two different topics covered, yet tightly related.
First, on the glad-handing in Illinois where the seller-outs refuse to admit they sold out:
We become obsessed with our work. The hardcore enemy,–the professional lobbyists, the trade industries, and collate rials (such as the ACLU and anti-abortion groups)–get paid good money to advocate against something they have no personal stake in. For them, it’s just a job. For us, it’s our lives. As for the soft enemy, the deformers, whom I consider much more insidious because the take the trust of the newbies and unaculturated–anything goes. Any incremental change, despite history, is framed as a victory and the left-behinds remain left behind without even the comfort of a desert island. Tough luck, sucker!. Does anyone seriously believe that Sneaky Sara Feigenholz and Melisha
Richelileu Mitchell will do a thing to open records for people like Triona? The deal is done. Take that, you selfish twats. Rejoice in the privilege or others.
