Term “Start a Family” Denounced as “Loathsome”

A primary objective of progressive social engineering is the destruction of the family. In the past, they have attacked the family indirectly, e.g., by undermining the sanctity of marriage. But now they are getting explicit.

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…

Note the attempt to define family out of existence by pretending that having friends is the same thing as raising children.

Attacking the term “start a family” also advances other agenda items: normalizing sexual perversion and discouraging regular Americans from reproducing. But destroying the family unit appears to be the ultimate objective.

“Family values” has been a derogatory term among liberals for some time. Now “start a family” is derogatory. When utopia has been imposed, we won’t need any family, because the government will provide all the social cohesion we need.

    But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power…” 2 Timothy 3:1-5

    Ancient text and yet…

    Raising my kids made me grow up. I’ll just leave it at that.

  3. Ed. G. Mann says:

    Why bother paying attention to them? But if anything encourage them not to have kids. That just means fewer Proggy idiot spawn on the streets and in the schools. Take your blessings where they are presented.

  4. […] The Left is, at war, with normalcy. Remember that when you read this from Moonbattery […]

  5. Son of the Rabbit People says:

    Have no children. Be homosexual. If you can’t be homosexual (you bigot), and you accidentally find yourself in a situation involving a pregnancy, visit your local government-sponsored abortion mill.

    We will import people from the third world by the millions (especially from the Muslim World and Central America) who we will encourage to have children by the millions. You will pay for this of course.

    Now go watch TV.

    Sincerely, the government.

    The ONLY MARRAGE the left is GOOD with is for HOMOSEXUALS (anyone but straight).

    Other loathsome words, Cis, Trans, fluid, sustainable, reasonable…

  9. KHarn says:

    “Starting a family” mean having roots and a heritage. It means taking responsibility, becoming independent and emotionally mature. All the things the neo-commies hate and fear.

    Or interracial of course. Must breed that evil white race out of existence.

    Nothing more abhorrent than “First Family”

  13. Pork_Soda says:

    My wife and I are a childless couple in our mid 40s. I work in education/childcare so I am knee deep in kiddles k-5 every day. We ain’t sippin’ Mai Tais by the beach or engaging in any other leisurely crap like the couple above seem to be doing, and we don’t consider ourselves “having it all” because we don’t have kids. Having moved from the most Child poor area and leftist shangrila (SF bay area) to the Portland, OR suburbs, we find it refreshing to being in an area where there are so many more young families. We realize that being able to “start a family” is a great blessing for others and count ourselves lucky to be involved with those friends who do.

  14. Exit Only says:

    Seems like the perverts want straight heterosexuals to do all the heavy lifting–Humor them with letting them in any bathroom or locker room, play the name game to keep us off balance, lest we are fined or sued for”Discrimination”, and now to be the only ones to multiply and replenish and care for the next generation that they will prey on for their sexual fulfillment. We have become just livestock to them.

  15. MAS says:

    My bride and I had a blast for the first decade of our marriage (married relatively young)…but then we grew up. Realized that life really isn’t all about just us and am I ever glad we did. Two sprouts up and running and both have been blessings (and curses at times). Narcissism seems to be the prevailing ideal of this age…getting over ourselves is the most freeing event possible.

  16. 762x51 says:

    This is why I and many others have sworn to honor our oath to support and defend the Constitution and to fight the PROGRESSIVES of both parties to the death. Liberty and the right to live the life you have chosen for yourself was handed to you. You have a duty to hand it on to your progeny or you are just as bad as the progtards who would take it from them. Time to man up, the party is over.

    Pretty sure I’ve already seen this movie.

  17. 762x51 says:

    As long as we continue to play by the enemy ROE, we will lose. That is what laws have become, Rules of Engagement put in place by an enemy government that seeks to rule over every facet of your daily life.

    They may indeed view us as livestock, but we are heavily armed livestock.

  18. Lobotomist says:

    Deciding to remain childless is each coupes right and some have it forced upon them by nature. Being forced to be childless by a group or government who “knows what’s best for you” is another thing entirely.

  19. 762x51 says:

    And yet many who call themselves “Christians” still shirk the duty placed upon them to stand against and oppose evil. I wonder how the “I was too busy getting the kids to soccer practice” excuse will play on the day they stand for judgement?

    Meeting evil with aggression and violence is not wrong, it is ones duty.

  20. TED says:

    AGAIN displaying their FIRM grasp on the KNOWLEDGE OF MATHMATICS…pouring a CUP of black into the OCEAN of white I’m sure won’t POLUTE the white race much more than it has the last couple of hundred years…LOLOLOLOLOL. BUT, it makes them FEEL GOOD and THAT IS their central AGENDA for everything.

    I appreciate your passion however; we almost certainly have a VERY different idea of the nuts and bolts of how “to stand against and oppose evil” 308.

    Who will be left to buy your magazine?

  25. jamesg1103 says:

    I got an offer from Time. $10 for 12 months and if I paid immediately they’d make it 18 months and send an electronic clock.

    I signed up and get a “magazine” as thin as a supermarket handout.

    It’s full of ads for meds so they probably give it free to MDs and make a few dollars on advertising.

    I give my copies to the cleaning lady.

  26. 762x51 says:

    No doubt MAS, however, there is only one way that has ever been successful. Throughout all of human history, evil has only been driven back into the darkness by force of arms. This evil, Progressivism, has been given, peace and love and understanding and COMPLACENCY, for 100 years and it has grown powerful. That means the strategy has failed and it is past time to try a new strategy, the one that has been proven to work.

    The evil of Nazism could not have defeated by showing the Gestapo love and compassion and “turning the other cheek”. Going along to “keep the peace” works right up to the door into the gas chamber.

    Progressives and Muslims are two sides of the same coin which why they are allies. Both are pushing “convert or die” ideologies, when you bargain with them, you are entering into negotiations on how much slavery you are willing to accept, not just for yourself, but for those kids of yours as well. Bargaining away your own freedom is not the same as bargaining away the freedom of generations yet unborn. Consigning your great, great grandchildren, who you will never meet is its own kind of evil.

    I have no idea what God’s overall plan is, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t involve me or my progeny living out our lives as slaves to evil. As Conservatives, we believe in personal responsibility. That responsibility includes passing on the freedom we were given by those who came before us. They fought and bled and died so that you and I can live the way we choose, each according to the beliefs God has placed in our hearts. If we refuse to stand and fight the evil that has risen yet again, we dishonor not only ourselves and our children, but those who fell to hand us this freedom.

    I will not lay on my death bed at 90, look into my children’s eyes and explain to them that they must live as slaves because I was too afraid to stand against those who would enslave them.

    Often mis-attributed to George Orwell, “People sleep soundly in their beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do them harm.”, is nonetheless, true.

  27. MAS says:

    I get you POV (been there done that)..mine is based on Romans chapter 13. Paul exhorts us to submit to the governing authorities as do other writers of the NT. Remember that when Paul penned Romans 13 Nero was the head of government…the same Nero who was burning Christians alive in his garden for entertainment. The way of loving your enemies is difficult but hardly without success, it is the Christian way taught by Jesus Himself. I’ll do my best to follow His way even though it is hard to ken at times, thanks.

    On the bright side, these people will soon be extinct. The future belongs to the fertile. Thank you, Mr. Darwin.

  30. Take The Red Pill says:

    There are relatively few Christians nowadays; but there are a LOT of ‘Churchians’ — congregations of female supremacists that disguise themselves as Christian, led by gelded manginas who preach the Religion of Feminism, their main source of which is the Book of Oprah…

  31. Take The Red Pill says:

    What do you want carved on your tombstone?

  32. 762x51 says:

    As you wish.

    I’d be interested to read up on the times when loving your enemy has succeeded. Can you supply a couple of examples?

  33. 762x51 says:

    The problem I see with them is that they tend to use “Christianity” as an excuse to not stand up for what is right and I do not believe that is what God intended. The destruction of evil is not an evil act. The whole mentality is non-sequitur, it requires me to believe that God’s plan includes allowing evil to conquer and enslave the whole world. I reject that idea outright. If “love” actually worked against evil, I’d use it. but it doesn’t. Evil only understands one thing, force.

  34. MAS says:

    Oh 308 I’d love to debate the merits of Christian Scriptural application to life’s problems but I suspect 1 Cor 2:14 may hold the answer as to why Romans 13 seems to hold no thunder for you. You might want to look deeply into your soul and ask if the Corinthian quote has merit in your case.

  35. MAS says:

    “Deal with it”, like your profile, might suffice. 762×51 I know from his long life here…you? Not so much…

  36. DrTorch says:

    SJW’s always project.

  37. 762x51 says:

    I meant the question sincerely. I did not mean it as anything but a genuine inquiry into your statement that “The way of loving your enemies is difficult but hardly without success, it is the Christian way taught by Jesus Himself.” The discussion was on effective ways to destroy evil, or at least drive it back into the darkness. You said that your way is “hardly without success” I gave specific examples of where and when my way has succeeded, and was interested in finding out from you something I didn’t know.

    I would not presume to debate the merits of Christian Scriptural application with you. I’m sure you know far more about scripture than I, that isn’t the question. On the other hand, I probably know far more about disassembling bad guys than you so if there is a way to do it that I’m not aware of, which has been shown effective, I would like to know about it so I can gauge the effectiveness of the two systems side by side. I have a pretty deep knowledge of history and I am simply unaware of any instance of the defeat of evil without the use of force.

    As to your Fist Corinthians reference, my understanding and acceptance of the Spirit of God is between him and me.

  38. MAS says:

    “I have a pretty deep knowledge of history and I am simply unaware of any instance of the defeat of evil without the use of force”

    It was at the cross son. You and I are not going to even be able to contact by radar as both of us are too far off each other’s screen.

  39. 762x51 says:

    Spiritual warfare and physical warfare are entirely different things. I’m talking about real world enslavement by physically manifested, lock you naked in a hole full of pig crap and electrocute you through the wall slats for fun until it’s time to put a bullet in your head, evil. That is what I can do something about, that is what is out here stalking us today.

    As you yourself observed, Nero was burning Christians decades AFTER the Crucifixion, the Dark Ages, nearly unmatched for evil, and brutality happened centuries after that, the World Wars, etc. Evil was not defeated by the Crucifixion, otherwise it would not exist today. HE died for our sins that day, not to vanquish evil. “God’s Armor” works to keep the spirit whole and free from evil, but it won’t stop an AK round. One can fully understand and appreciate the meaning of the sacrifice of Christ for humanity and still recognize the need to stand against the evil one and his minions while here on Earth.

    Perhaps we are that far apart, but at least I leave the judging of that up to God.
