How does one believe that it’s ok to post someone’s private messages on a public forum? It’s even worse that their friends see nothing wrong with it.
One day I would like to see the world get along...you know like kissing the whole ‘eye for an eye’ mentality goodbye. How can anyone get better if they feel that shaming someone will bring them peace? How can an individual feel justified by spending their life working on bringing the bully attitude out in public.
Just once it would be nice if some women would just act like adults instead of trying to bring ridicule to other women. Shouldn’t we be holding each other up, not burying each other?
One of my most recent interactions with an adoptee turned ugly on Twitter. For some reason she felt the need to try and paint me as a bad person for ‘tone policing’ her...funny how she chose not to read what another adoptee had posted and decided to twist it all around just so she could argue. Of course during all of this performance I was getting messages from others in the private group that they were concerned about her involvement with us in our “Fog and Gaslighting Free Adoptee Space” group. Needless to say, she blocked me but continues to have her ‘friends’ screenshot my posts.
It’s stuff like this that makes me realize that I actually am a grownup. Plus the crap she has posted about other adoptees is unnecessary. It comes off as jealous rambling. I know I appreciate when someone sees a need and sets out to take care of it. I love reading other adoptees memoirs but apparently she doesn’t think the adoptee should get paid for it.
When it comes to ‘tone policing’ I laugh. She happens to come off as a bully that keeps hammering away at you until you break. Her friends will never say anything mean to her because they’ve seen her tear people to shreds
Seriously gotta love children, but you sure can’t wait for the day they grow up and play nice with society and stop causing more trauma to an already traumatized adoptee.
