Doesn’t it tell you everything you need to know about the state of the family in Western civilization today that we even need to refer to a man, a woman, and children as a “traditional family?” Why not just “family?”

The fact that it even needs an adjective tells you how imperiled families actually are.

When obvious facts need modifiers, it shows how twisted our version of reality is. Like babies in the womb are referred to as “potential” human beings. Like the marriage of a man and a woman is referred to as “traditional” marriage as if there’s nothing else to recommend it other than it’s the way people who are now dead used to understand things.

Language is the front line of the culture war.
