Married w/ kids to a far-leftist - need advice
First time on Reddit. Looking to get some advice/input on how to proceed with my relationship.

I met my wife 4 years ago. We are both mid 30s. We both shared the same far-left regressive politics when we first met. It started as a casual fling but she got pregnant really quickly. We now have a three year old and a one year old.

We have a great relationship aside from the fact that we cannot discuss politics or any social issues.

Since we’ve been together, I have become a huge fan of JBP, Sam Harris, etc. and my views now run counter to hers on nearly every issue. She regularly talks about white privilege, BLM, and not doing enough to advice SJW causes. She loves Shaun King and doesn’t see any issue with PC culture (thinks it’s great!) She’s even bragged about following a FB page run by a woman that “fuuuucking hates white people.”

I’ve tried to engage in more civil discussions on these issues, but she has frankly stated that she is an ideologue and that these views are “her identity.” There is no moving her, even a little. She refuses to even listen to a counter argument, or to even entertain the idea that there are other arguments.

During the last discussion we had about all of this, she said that is OK with being racist, as long as it’s directed towards whites, even though the children we are raising are white.

My main concern is the children: She’s jokingly talked about enrolling my son in a drag queen classes. I am concerned that any feminine trait he may exhibit once he grows up will be pounced on and exploited by her ideology, and that he will suffer for it.

I am considering a divorce, but this is not a road I want to go down. We get along great as long as these subjects are not breeched. I am concerned that I have less room within the relationship to combat any impending gender/political craziness if I stay within the relationship, because I have to maintain a peace. If I leave there is more freedom, but the children will suffer greatly.

There are dragons under the rug that are growing. I need some help here.

I also like the idea that someone has told Trump that, now he's president, he can invoke things, so he tells people that he's going to 'invoke pee' rather than 'go to the bathroom'.

I bought a frozen cheese pizza from a grocery outlet. It had a strangely long baking time, exuded tons of water, and tasted like a tuna melt. I then learned the pizza crust itself was made of chicken.
