How should I make this sentence correct? Grammarly states it has faulty parrallelism because of the words .... not limited and ....have in this sentence.
The magnitude and distribution of this social concern has not limited itself to two consensual adults but have become more apparent in the youth community; affecting not only the United States region but all geographical areas and including all races, ethnics, gender and age groups.
Social concern is singular which would seemingly require singular verb, but the proper subject is "magnitude and distribution" or two things - thus, plural verb. I prefer "have not limited" to Tolleys answer above but I agree the thought is better divided in two sentences. It is easier to read and comprehend that way.
