"A writer, painter, and self-identified little sister, she raised three kids and thinks of herself as normal."  b. 1957, married since 1982, children: Max, Ezra and Nellie.  "Ms. Vonnegut, who has been married to Scott Prior for 30 years.", 11/20/12 --126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:01, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
I think you're missing the point. This is a talk page to discuss issues regarding the article. This is not a place to build or edit the article. Also, even if you were editing the article itself, you are not making a good case for expanding the section about his family. There is no real reason to include this information in an article about Kurt. Centerone (talk) 04:40, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Re the recent revert of my edit. It was just that I have never seen a list this long before and found it visually offensive (clutter). Sorry if I over-reacted. But I must admit I hate categories like this: "American male writers". Why it is needed I don't know, other than as a petty male response to feminist arguments about how women writers are neglected.

It is applied because "American" and "male" are WP:DEFINING characteristics and the cross-section of the two is useful for navigation. It likewise struck me as absurd that Kurt Vonnegut should be taken out of a category called "Kurt Vonnegut". Elizium23 (talk) 20:31, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks for helping me better understand the potential usefulness of categories. I must admit that they can be valuable aids in expanding articles. Rwood128 (talk) 21:43, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
