Taking Children from Their Parents Is a Form of State Terror

When my kids were fifteen and twelve, we lived through a period during which the Russian government was threatening to take children away from queer parents, and, specifically, threatening to go after my kids. I sent my son, who is adopted, to boarding school in the United States while the rest of us got ready to emigrate. My biological daughter was less at risk, perhaps even at no risk, and yet the question of whether social services would come knocking sent me into a panic.

Commentary: In Russia political dissidents are deprived of their children, argues the writer. Preteen boys who participate in demonstrations against Putin are detained by the social services and taken from their family. «A possible explanation, she suggested, is that social services, which will process the minors, is even less accountable than the regular courts are.» I think the author is right.
