Check out the other side of that. “Say something disparaging.” How in the world could someone say something horrible about adopting a child in need? Lucky for you, I recently had a run-in with a former high school classmate that ended in one of these reprehensible conversations.
Let’s start with her post.
Now, I know I don’t need to tell you that the Alabama law still allows for medically-necessary abortions. They also don’t hold the woman responsible if she does have one performed after six weeks. A cursory Google search led me to the actual text of the bill. First link, might I add. And on the very first page, these things are outlined clearly.
But God forbid you try and gently correct someone.
Yup. That’s exactly what she’s telling me while trying to say that’s not her point. I wasn’t born yesterday. As a matter of fact, we were both born the same year. In the same town. A town, might I add, that’s affluent and spoiled.
And you can’t fool me. We went to school together. Cops didn’t get on your back because you were black. Cops got on your back because you skipped school and caused trouble.
Once I was done with the conversation and told her she’d valiantly silenced me, she put me on blast.
Good to see we haven’t left high school after all these years…
