I've always wondered why spell check grabs the word adoptee...
Why is that?
I just read an essay about sealed records and adoption in the US by Dr. William G Troxler past president of Capital College here in my neighborhood. I found this:
The term "adoptee" is a linguistic diminutive intended to keep adopted people servile. That is to say an adoptee is in a position of subservience just as an employee is to an employer or as a lessee is to a lessor. The message is be grateful and be quiet; you are a permanent captive of the adoption system.
How do you feel about the word adoptee?
