Another Bad Binkie: the Daily Tar Heel
And the latest Bad Binkie Award goes to.... The Daily Tar Heel, the student paper of the University of North Carolina, which uses the term "adopted children" to describe adult adoptees five times in its four hundred and fifty word editorial opining that adoption records should be sealed from adult adoptees.
Although the editors express "sympathy" for "adopted children" who wish to access their OWN BIRTH RECORDS, said sympathy doesn't extend to giving adult adoptees the same rights as everyone else.
THEREFORE and FORTHWITH: The editorial staff of the Daily Tar Heel of the University of North Carolina have earned the second award of the BAD BINKIE.
