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 know all-too-well how a wobbly frame of mind can make any old thing sound like an assault on oneself but it helps, I find, to be occasionally reminded that this is not always or even necessarily frequently the case.

How apt

--

Trump doing his best to kill off his Nebraska voters: For hours, attendees - including many elderly Trump supporters - stood in the cold, as police scrambled to help those most at-risk get to warmth.
Thirty people needed medical attention over the course of the rally, Omaha police spokesman Michael Pecha told The Washington Post on Wednesday. Seven were taken to local hospitals "with a variety of medical conditions."...

Nah, the last two lines (and the first line!) are so clearly from the first half of the chorus that it doesn’t matter how you adapt that second line. It scans, adjourned.
