Having Kids Won't Prevent You from Being Exceptional But Not Knowing Grammar Will

OK, so I have so many responses to this article about how women who get married and have kids are failing at life. But, firstly, if you're going to act so superior, learn to use hyphens and proofread. (No, the "dominate cultural voice" is not going to tell me anything because that's not a thing.)

Also: "We have baby showers and wedding parties as if it's a huge accomplishment and cause for celebration to be able to get knocked up or find someone to walk down the aisle with. These aren't accomplishments, they are actually super easy tasks, literally anyone can do them." False. You know who can't get knocked up? Literally half of the human population. 

Aside from that, the whole premise that "[y]ou will never have the time, energy, freedom or mobility to be exceptional if you have a husband and kids" is just sad.
