Sadly, this sums up the core worries of Democrat parents – if they can be rightly called that – today. Their children using drugs and/or alcohol at young ages doesn’t strongly concern them. But, oh how critical or independent thought being shown by their young sets them right off!
These days, Dems raising children – more and more normally a single mother with no father in evidence or even known – would be less angry and horrified by their child not transitioning into another sex than finding out that they read anything by Ayn Rand!
The only bright side of this is that it is a self-correcting problem and one that won’t last much longer in the scope of history. For that, at least, Americans can be thankful. We and our nation can weather this storm by playing the long game and just doing what comes naturally.
