I found this sitting in the “pending” pile; Girl4708 has given me permission to update and post. She originally wrote:
As I approved another comment today on a blog post I wrote about Woody Allen, I wondered about tan fever, brown fever, and black fever as Asian adoptions decline and other countries become sources for children. I’d like to know the thoughts other non-Asian adoptees have about the taboo and the not-so-taboo in regards to your own exotic status.
Any thoughts on this, this inversion of negative attention into untoward “positive” attention in the adoptive environment?
