Over the Fourth of July long weekend, Leila and I went to L.A. which meant visiting her parents. I will spare you the boring details (especially since they could be used to identify me in some way), but it became clear that Leila’s parents really want grandchildren. While I’m sure that they would prefer us to be married before having kids, I think they would be happy at some level if I knocked up Leila tomorrow. Her parents almost seem like grandchildren wanting machines.
I think this may be part of a larger phenomena of baby boomer parents getting worried that their children don’t have children yet. Since marriage gets delayed by women, that means that baby boomer parents have to wait longer and longer for grandchildren. This makes them very nervous that they may never have grandchildren. Eventually, they get to the point where they don’t care if their kids are married first before having kids. Baby boomer parents are more and more becoming de facto supporters of single motherhood with all of the societal devastation that goes along with it.
For us, this means that the grandchildren strike is an effective weapon against feminist and shifting the costs of feminism on to those who created feminism. If there’s one thing baby boomer parents are going to be worried about, it’s not having grandchildren. For those of us in the M(H)RA and MGTOW sphere, when our parents start getting really worried about not having grandchildren, the only choice we should offer them is grandchildren via surrogate mothers (or artificial wombs depending on when they become available and our ages). Hopefully, their heads won’t explode when we offer them that choice.
