I am watching Sherlock and trying to work while my wife is out. But I am drunk and stressing about becoming a dad.

Imagine trying to raise a child!

Drunken Dad Fear

When did I grow up?

I'm not going to sugarcoat the pill, being a dad is discovering a whole set of panic-inducing fears you didn't know you could have. It was a nasty surprise for someone who's pretty laid-back like me, and I'm trying to guess if it will fit into your natural paranoia or expand it further.
My main fear is navigating the rise of fascism as a parent!

It's gonna be a hell of a thing

This is a concern, but not nearly the main one for the first 2 years or so, where you will doubt the structural integrity of your offspring on a daily basis.

Also you're all white, so the impact of the current fascist wave is mitigated on your family. And remember a kid is for life, so by the time your kid grows up in about 20 years, the political landscape is likely to be entirely different.
well, I am worried about the ways that intersections work, and the way my privilege can hurt a child in complicated ways

Road intersections? And you're completely fine if you know what privilege means in the first place.
Uh, intersections of oppression and privilege
Hypolite Petovan friendica (via ActivityPub)
Oh. So yeah, you'll be worrying about road intersections before this kind of intersection.
