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.

Hey guys, I just built a spotify playlist that includes all the songs discussed on the following genre threads:
Rolling Hip Hop
Rolling Pop
Rolling Country

Rolling Rock
Rolling Indie Rock
Rolling R&B

It's really simple, because I know it's just music. It's no more than a playlist and I'm just making this because I enjoy listening to all the genres. You can also check out some sample songs on YouTube if you really want to hear all the genres. In any case, if you want to download tracks and support this project go do that.

I've played this for months and I'm never too disappointed with the results. I'd recommend listening to a few tracks in the future to practice, you will grow from this, so I invite you to share this knowledge with others if you think you really have a sound that everyone should hear. It will hopefully inspire you and your team to continue working hard.

Thanks for checking this project out, and I hope it's inspiring and interesting to everyone.
