An Ugly Word

Co-Parent”.  Disgusting word I happened upon the other day.

It’s an ugly word and anyone using it ought to be shamed. It sounds like a family is a freaking airplane and anyone who knows how could step in and fly it. Or like the roles of mother and father are interchangable. They aren’t, and if your family is having to do without one of them – for whatever reason – it’s a hardship.

A man is his children’s father, a woman their mother, and their marital status does not change this. In the screenplay of my kids’ life, I”m not Parent #1 or #2. I’m their Dad.

Then again, that’s just me. I could be wrong. Dex is an oldthinker who unbellyfeels newspeak.
