#AtoZChallenge – F is for Family

Family according to social studies, is the smallest unit of the community, and it is made up of the mother, father and children. But with recent developments, that definition is obsolete, because there are single parent families and single sex parent families.
Some people will look at this development as a plunge into darkness and that which is against standard social conduct, while others will look at it as welcome.
Because why should a century definition apply to the situation of today. If age old definitions held us back, people would still have slaves, freedom of speech would not exist, oppression would be the norm. But because adaption is built into our genetic code, we have let go of such archaic constructs, so why the anger at the lights of progressive movement seen in the restructuring of the family unit.
Something to think about.
