I have five kids. I thought I was sane, but apparently, I’m living a crazy alternative lifestyle.
Freestyle halfpipe skier David Wise won gold at Sochi. NBC, rather than being impressed with his world-class athleticism, focused on his“alternative lifestyle.” You see, Wise is married to Alexandra, and they have a young son. Wise is also considering becoming a pastor.
San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers has had his critics in terms of his play, but there are also critics of his “alternative lifestyle”: he and his wife, Tiffany, have six kids (they recently had a seventh child.) ESPN noted with this comment:
Six kids? Regardless of your profession, it’s impossible to be a good parent to six kids. Not enough hours in the day.
One headline even read: “Phillip Rivers Is An Intense Weirdo,” and blamed his “weirdness” on the fact that there were “eight people running around his house.”
Why is our society so afraid of families and children?
Because it’s the wrong type of people having families and children.
