Parents Must Choose Authenticity Over Political Correctness
Nurturing Children's Individuality for a Happier Future
Political Correctness has no place in parenting.
As a father of two, I know firsthand just how much I don’t know about fatherhood.
What I do know for certain is I'm doing my best.
While I cannot say I’ve got it all figured out, I can say that my approach to raising my son and daughter has spared me of the struggles I see others going through.
While there may not be one definitive right way to raise young men and women, there most certainly is a wrong way.
“Raising children as pawns to garner accolades for being “most in line” with what has been deemed as currently acceptable by mainstream media is no way to raise your children.
It’s surrogate parenting; you’re only a liaison between trendsetters and the life you created until they can get their claws into them as teenagers and remove you from the equation.”
- Zac Small
To those ready to criticize the suggestion that parents might be parenting wrong, feel free to express your thoughts - but let's be honest, it's foolish to believe that raising a child in a "gender-neutral/ever-changing /politically+socially driven" manner doesn't have some serious flaws.
The Pitfalls of Raising Children in the Grip of Political Correctness
In an age where political correctness dominates the cultural landscape, many parents find themselves grappling with the question of how to raise their children.
While it may seem like a noble and virtuous endeavor to raise kids in compliance with politically correct ideologies, where you think you’re doing what has been accepted as “the best for them”, you may miss the fact that this approach can have detrimental effects on their development.
In today’s times, it's disheartening to witness feminists and “pro-gender-neutral” parents take issue with girls being girls and boys being boys. In the pursuit of “inclusion”, society has found a way to exclude those who never left their authentic development. The message to parents (and parents-to-be) is that children, acting according to their inherent biology, somehow betray themselves and undermine the progress that generations of people have fought for.
We have evil characters of influence who tell girls not to let men dictate their choice of clothing or careers.
We have these same demons telling our sons they’re broken girls and how they should repress their natural state in order to be less abrasive and more accepted by others; in a way, they tell our sons that to be loved, they must change who they are.
And yet, those spewing this mental poison presume the authority to dictate what our children should wear, study, and do for a living.
It makes no sense…
Here's an alternative idea…Let your child choose.
One of the primary concerns with raising children in compliance with political correctness is that it suppresses critical thinking.
Political correctness often dictates what can and cannot be said, restricting freedom of thought and expression. By raising children exclusively within the confines of politically correct dogma, parents inhibit their ability to think independently and critically evaluate ideas. This stifling of intellectual freedom can hinder their personal growth and development.
Let your son and/or daughter express themselves, and grant them the freedom to choose their path in life, free from the requirements set in place by people who don’t give two-fucks about the irreversible damage they're doing to your baby.
Don't allow society to manipulate your children to further their own agenda.
Never Undermine Authenticity
Authenticity is essential for personal fulfillment and genuine relationships. Raising children to conform to politically correct norms can…
