In response to my post last month "What price justice" the following anonymous comment was made " You forgot to mention about the horrendous hatred that you have inflicted upon Natural Mothers and Adoptees Murray. Or did you conveniently 'forget' about that??"
This comment says so much more about the person posting it than it says about the writer.
First of all the person does not have enough conviction of their comments to put their name to it.
Secondly the person making the statement continue to push out the propaganda and lies in relation to my views on this while shameful episode called adoption in Australia. That is a shameful act on its own
thirdly the person shows the hatred of anyone who disagrees with them which has been the position of some organisations since 2000 when there was a split.
If anyone can show me evidence that i have inflicted horrendous hatred upon my fellow adoptees and the many natural mothers who have suffered all their lives please bring it forward.
I admit i call a spade a spade and if i think someone is talking bull i will say so. but that is me stating my opinion freely.
I have never tried to cloud the issue by trying to make it a Forgotten Australian and stolen generations issue. They have had their day in the media's eye and the Parliament of Australia and have had the injustices imposed upon them recognised for the terrible acts that they were.
I am about adoptees taking their place equally with the mothers in the public and the medias eye. I am about adoptees being recognised as victims of the past injustices. i am for adoptees as being recognised as persons subject to forced adoptions regardless of the method under which consent was obtained. If that means I am guilty of inflicting hatred upon mothers and adoptees, i will proudly say guilty. because it means that the persons who feel this way towards me are an aberration and should be treated as such . People like Janice, Leigh, Teri all mothers know me for what i am and whilst they may not agree with me, they respect my views like i respect theirs. Adoptees like Melissa, Sonya, Neil, Clare, Jan , Cat and Kate are example of adoptees who do not think i impart horrendous hatred upon them.
There are about 500,000 persons in this great country who have been affected by adoption. So there are about 500,000 differing points of view. And no one should try to impose their dogma and mantras upon any of us.
