The Left is, at war, with normalcy. Remember that when you read this from Moonbattery
What liberals would eliminate completely, they label as offensive. Per Bill O’Sullivan, Senior Managing Editor of the Washingtonian, that now includes the term “start a family”:
Loathsome words aren’t just clichés, jargon, and grammar lapses. They’re also seemingly benign expressions that spill easily from our mouths and fingertips yet have implications we don’t even think about—until we do.
One of the worst of them: “start a family.”
What this euphemism means is get pregnant—or try to get pregnant, or have a baby, or adopt. So say that. Start a family devalues any couple who doesn’t happen to have kids, for whatever reason. It even sells single people short, who may not have children but do have “chosen” families of friends…
This is an inane claim of course. Saying that a couple is “starting a family” devalues no one. It certainly does not devalue a couple not wanting kids at all. And, no, it does not devalue single people either. Bill O’ Sullivan is either a moron, or demented.
Again, garbage like this is just part and parcel of what the Left is. Everything normal, they denigrate. Family, self-defense, competition, self-reliance, faith, prayer, heterosexuality, parental rights, freedom of speech, all of it is targeted by the Left in one way or another.
