You might remember from the day before a thread by gender-focused writer Joanna Schroeder in which she gave her advice to anyone with white teenage sons to prevent social media from turning them into alt-right white supremacists. “These are often boys from progressive or moderate families,” even. But an early red flag, she claimed, was if your teenage boy joked about someone being “triggered” just because they were being sensitive.
You might also remember that she recommended watching “political comedy” with them and explaining why liberals consider themselves funny.
You can also watch political comedy shows with him, like Trevor Noah, John Oliver, Hasan Minhaj. Talk about what makes their jokes funny – who are the butt of the jokes? Do they "punch up" or down?

Show them that progressive comedy isn't about being "politically correct" or safe.
It's often about exposing oppressive systems – which is the furthest thing from "safe" or delicate as you can get.

Her thread was so ripe for parody that Titania McGrath immediately did a parody of it. But speaking of systems of oppression, we somehow missed this reply, which we weren’t sure was a parody or not. We checked out Pierre Crépeaux’s timeline though, and we think he’s serious:
I have 2 teens (for the moment) and evening meals debriefings especially about oppression schemes are one of the best part of the parental work. I should add that I'm especially at odd with the way my daughter seems sometimes be OK with being oppressed without realizing she is…

“Evening meals debriefings especially about oppression schemes ….” Um, I just asked if you could pass the salt.
Imagine growing up in basically a cult where your parents tell you you’re oppressed or you’re an oppressor based on things about yourself you can’t change and you can’t do anything about it.

Ok…I…I don’t know at what angle to approach this from a psychological stand point. There is just so many things that I find interesting and disturbing. https://t.co/nhqcHgF3wi

I can only hope that your daughter has the strength of self to rise above your shit parenting.

You won’t have any kids left if you keep that shit up. Sounds like your own daughters already had enough of you.

Oh, honey. Your poor daughter. Having you for a daddy must be torture.

"My daughter doesn't feel oppressed, she feels she can be anything. But I tell her NO! THE PATRIARCHY WON'T ALLOW IT! FEEL BAD! I'm so supportive…"

I have a feeling the backlash coming from their children is going to be huge. Especially considering when they have their natural rebellion stage they’ll find themselves happier and having more support.

Hopefully, it means they are being taken away or leaving on their own volition.

Those sound like they’re from parody accounts — sadly they’re probably real…feel bad for the kids!

It is a religion. Privilege is original sin. Flogging yourself and ‘being and ally’ is the path to salvation. What paradise is depends on the flavor of wokeness.

Luckily for us, these types tend to be blank slaters so they are doomed to fail in their attempts to engineer the perfect child, and the more overbearing the parent, the larger the inevitable chafing and rebellion.
