That was the message posted yesterday where the Circle of Moms contest used to be. What a shame. It's truly sad when adult women can't be adult enough to handle being in the same silly contest with women who have a different viewpoint. What Circle of Moms did was censorship pure and simple. A few people didn't like the fact that an adoptee and a natural mom made it to the top 2 spots in the competition and didn't like what those blogs were about so instead of allowing people to read, think, learn and decide for themselves they just decided to pull the plug.
Unfortunately, the voices of adoptees and natural mothers are shut down on a regular basis. We get blocked from Facebook pages, have our comments deleted from blogs and we're banned from certain websites. What the people doing the blocking, banning and deleting haven't realized is, their attempts at censorship are futile. They're attempting to stop the flow of information and ideas that they don't like but now that so many of us have come out of the closet and are speaking up, now that we have the internet to share that information, we won't be stopped. It doesn't matter if they keep playing their childish games, the information is going to continue to be shared and more people will learn about what really happens in the adoption industry.
