Addressing the Harm of Silence and Assumptions of Mutability

The article’s full title is Addressing the Harm of Silence and Assumptions of Mutability: Implementing effective non-discrimination policies for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth in foster care, found here at SSRN.

This quote caught me:

Children walk the streets today because they were kicked out of a home that saw their struggle as a moral choice rather than a fact of their identity development.
