The Ignorance of Social Stigma Followers

ADOPTEE RAGE!

Social Stigma is Responsible for Adoptee's Plight

Many adoptee's were born under the iron fist of an
ignorant culture who feared, followed and worried
about "What other people think about them". This
common shallow and lacking way that most of
society's women conduct themselves and family.
These women are directly responsible for the
perpetuation and damage caused by stigma centered
gossip and behavior. The self proclaimed women purposely identify themselves as Christians, setting preconceived
notion that they're morality is significantly higher than
their peers. Uneducated, vain, and self centered persons
believe they are superior of other uneducated selfish women.
In this predictable behavior women
become victims of their own cruel standards and gossip.
the social stigma of pregnancy out of wedlock.
The dominating group setting the cultural norms of a
particular group is based the group's ignorance, fear
and the desire to be the same. Conflict of behavior as
the same group desires to be better than the neighbor,
having a better car, wife., Having a superior house in                 a track home neighborhood, these people fight their way
out of paper bags! The competition among them is a
hypocrisy. The women compete with one another in church
and in elementary school parking lots.
"Keeping up with the _______" is a lame translation
although fits the mentality of these cookie cutter lives.

Social stigma is the extreme disapproval of (or discontent with) a person on socially characteristic grounds that are perceived, and serve to distinguish them, from other members of a society. Stigma may then be affixed to such a person, by the greater society, who differs from their cultural norms.

The irony of the pregnancy out of wedlock stigma, is that
the women was still labeled damaged and the topic of gossip even though she cooperated and gave her child away to appease the community. This Ignorant and cruel community 
of people, is in every community.

The Stigmatised:
 The stigmatized are ostracized, devalued, rejected, scorned and shunned. They experience discrimination, insults, attacks and are even murdered. Those who perceive themselves to be members of a stigmatized group, whether it is obvious to those around them or not, often experience psychological distress and many view themselves contemptuously.
Although the experience of being stigmatized may take a toll on self-esteem, academic achievement, and other outcomes, many people with stigmatized attributes have high self-esteem, perform at high levels, are happy and appear to be quite resilient to their negative experiences.
The Stigmatizer:
From the perspective of the stigmatizer, stigmatization involves dehumanization, threat, aversion and sometimes the depersonalization of others into stereotypic caricatures. Stigmatizing others can serve several functions for an individual, including self-esteem enhancement, control enhancement, and anxiety buffering, through downward-comparison—comparing oneself to less fortunate others can increase one's own subjective sense of well-being and therefore boost one's self-esteem. 

Link and Phelan stigmatization model 

Bruce Link and Jo Phelan propose that stigma exists when four specific components converge:

  1. Individuals differentiate and label human variations.
  2. Prevailing cultural beliefs tie those labeled to adverse attributes.
  3. Labeled individuals are placed in distinguished groups that serve to establish a sense of disconnection between "us" and "them".
  4. Labeled individuals experience "status loss and discrimination" that leads to unequal circumstances.
