Why the Woke Movement and Political Correctness Has Killed Family Values

It’s all about how you made them feel.

The American family is slowly becoming a thing of the past. Mom, Dad, and the 2.5 kids are an endangered species.

The reason, in large part, is because of woke political correctness.

The Nuclear Family Unit is Done

More people are shacking up than are living in married households for the first time in history.

There was a time when society frowned upon living together without the benefit of marriage.

The knee-jerk reaction to such a statement would usually be, “What a prude!!”

In politically correct woke parlance, that simply means it’s none of my business what other people do.

Live and let live, they say.

It is my business when the fabric of the American dream becomes frayed because someone wants to feel good about themselves at my expense.

We have very little to fall back on without a strong family unit.

Unfortunately, the family unit has been obliterated by political correctness.

Shacking up is OK, divorce is OK, abortion is OK, drugs are OK, teen sex is OK, and breaking laws have no consequences since enforcement is selective based on what’s politically correct.

If you’re poor, you’re politically correct. If you are rich, you’re politically incorrect.

The poor want to be rich, while the poor also want the rich to be poor simultaneously.

If You’re Offended, We’re Sorry
