Il Panettiere at Workshop for Beginners is stirring up an interesting conversation about hair and transracially adopted children. Check it out here.
When I first read her post, I immediately tried to mount my high-horse but when I looked down I realized I was actually sitting on the fence.
After Sunday’s tick incident I did decide it was time for a hair-cut, for my black son who was trans-species adopted.
This may shock you, but I did that haircut all by myself.
Also, because these are the kinds of things I wonder when I see your animals on your blog…
Yes, he is from a shelter. Actually he is part of a large-scale cruelty case we busted four years ago this month. We took 86 dogs from a single home that day.
Of course he is neutered.
Yes, he is great with the kids. But other than that he is not trained at all.
Finally, if you want to be part of a real discussion about what is, unfortunately, a real issue, I once again urge you to visit Workshop for Beginners.
