This is so the worst thing you're going to read all day.

James Taranto: "The Moralistic Fallacy." Below, an actual excerpt:
Nonetheless, the vast majority of children who are growing up without fathers are doing so in large part because of their mothers' choices. In our column last month, we half-facetiously raised "the converse lament that young females are insufficiently interested in 'becoming reliable wives and mothers.' " Let us now raise it half-seriously. It is trivially true that an unmarried woman who bears a child is not a reliable wife. If Hymowitz is correct about the baneful effects of fatherlessness on boys, such a woman also is not a reliable mother, at least to her sons.
LOLOLOL FOREVER. This is a real thing that a real adult human being wrote and which a real media organization published in the year of our lord Jesus Jones two thousand and fourteen.
