I recently posted I'M IN LOVE WITH A SERIAL KILLER.
I rejected one of the comments I got because they are a previous stalker, who told me I "stole" my child. Anyway...the comment was TOTALLY RIDICULOUS. She linked to this site that says, "The FBI estimates 500 serial killers currently in the U.S; about 30 or 16% have been identified as adoptees."
It may very well be true that they were adopted, but it is not because they were adopted that they became serial killers. It's because they felt rejected, have some predisposition in their genes or they were abused in some way. To suggest that adoption leads to serial killers is just TOTALLY RIDICULOUS! If anything, this just points to why open-adoption is better. The children have a link to their past and possible have answers to their questions, thus not causing frustration and acting out.
Look at that first quote again....it also means that 470 serial killers in the U.S. were not adopted and I think they are serial killers for the same reasons as the adopted ones: rejected, have some predisposition in their genes or they were abused in some way.
On this same site, they then list all of the adopted serial killers. They even lump MOSES, in with them! How is that for nutty?
Just for laughs I searched for "famous people who have been adopted." I got a huge list of people including: world leaders, actors, performers, poets, writers, educators, singers and athletes. And none of them were serial killers.
I've been told that I am just burying my head in the sand and I am just ignoring how horrible adoption really is, but to say that adoption leads to someone becoming a serial killer is just plain STUPID. I believe in nurture, over nature. I am not naive enough to think it is all "rainbows and sunshine." Nothing ever is (all the time), but if you dwell in the shadows, you will see the negative and I would rather walk in the sunshine.
NOTE TO MY PREVIOUS STALKERS: I will not publish your comments, thanks.
