Men believe the family is their domain but when it comes to watching the children or doing chores suddenly it’s not their responsibility
“If hoards of men started taking their wives’ surnames, it would be an unfortunate and perhaps irreversible step towards a matriarchal goddess culture, which blows for guys because those cultures used to routinely kill male infants and treat males like slaves. In a world where there are already very few incentives for men to get legally shackled, this is one slippery slope I wouldn’t want to slide down.” – Ricky, 27
I’M SORRY BUT WHAT IS HAPPENING TO FEMALE CHILDREN AND WOMEN AROUND THIS WORLD??? OH YES, JUST THAT.
I feel like I need to trigger warn this as “infuriating male opinions”
Actual equality is perceived as inequality by most men. And by a lot of us women, because that’s what society has taught us. I actually grew up in a place where woman keep their surnames after marrying, so when I learned that women here are suposed to change it, I felt bewildered… Your name is a part of your identity… How could it affect U.S. men and women to be raised from birth, ones knowing that their surname will someday change to another they don’t know yet based on the man they marry, and the others, knowing that they will be called the same all their lifes and that their future wifes who they still don’t know will assume their surnames? I’m sure it has to condition them somehow. It can’t be good growing up knowing that your name, your symbollyc identity, is temporary and will be changed by a man. it has to have an impact
(and that ELijah boy is gr8t. “Listen, I’m a feminist.” Isn’t he precious? *sarcasm*)
I like how women are expected to change their last names and when the other way around is suggested, it’s so taboo and unacceptable. Hypocritical, much?
