We should not trauma-trump. Sorry, but this is not cool:
Here’s a definition of civil rights from findlaw:
“Civil rights” are the rights of individuals to receive equal treatment (and to be free from unfair treatment or “discrimination”) in a number of settings — including education, employment, housing, and more — and based on certain legally-protected characteristics.
So no, adoptees are not “the last group” denied our civil rights. Anyone who says they are sounds a lot like the assholes who whine that the last discriminated-against group in the US of A is straight white men.
Don’t do this. And if you truly believe no non-adoptee group in the USA currently receives unequal treatment, don’t comment. In fact, stop reading my blog.
