Isn't kimkim gorgeous? She writes: "I say we are the most glamorous ones in adoption, we are tragic, we represent sex, we are brimming with fertility, we are the ones people whispered about, we are the most feared, we are the catalyst for all things adoption."
I agree. Fallen women are HOT.
And she's given me the perfect excuse to post this picture of myself. I love the t-shirt. I love the shadow of the bars on the window, I love the unholy mess in the background. Locked in jail, plotting revenge. I love it.
I have wondered about the effect, if there is one, of the birthparents' physical appearance on coercion in adoption. Is a person with desirable features, say, bright blue eyes, likely to be carrying a blued eyed baby, more likely the be sought after by people on the lookout for stray babies?
It's an ugly thing to consider. Especially the flip side.
