i have made a post like this but here it goes *deep breath*:
TRANSETHNICITY IS A REAL THING IN ADOPTION TERMS.
it is when a child of one ethnicity is adopted by parents of another ethnicity.
white people just hijacked this term from adoptees and are using it for their racist motives. ‘transethnic’ is a real term. you’re just using it wrong.
^Individuals who grasp this simple fact reaaaally shouldn’t be as rare as they are.
