"There's something so emasculating about the notion of a man washing away his name altogether. The thought makes me uncomfortable, and kind of angry Edgar, 25 8. "No way. ological impulse ng. Biologically, the word domain keeps popping into my head. That sounds misogynistic, I know. But at my core, when all is said and done, I believe that the family is my domain. For instance, in any hypothetical state of emergency, I'm going be the one to sacrifice my life to save my wife and children. I should be the one whose name lives on." Raul, 29 12. "Listen, I'm a feminist. But we have to draw the line somewhere. Equal rights shouldn't come at the cost of upending all established conventions. Why get married at all if you don't want to embrace the related traditions?" Elijah, 27 14. "I have some friends out west who've done the combo last name thing for the baby, and that seems fair. Starting a new lineage is kind of cool. But taking her name? That's not fair. That's just lame. No thanks."

We as a society need to discuss why it’s considered necessary for a woman to take a man’s name in a marriage, and why it is considered degrading the other way around. Take a minute to think about that: things that are considered necessary for women are degrading for men. It shows how society views women when you think of that. At one of my school reunions, I met one of my former classmates who had taken his wife’s surname. He was so chill about it. Told everyone very proudly that his wife was an only child (and so was her father and grandfather) so if she’d taken his last name or even if they’d hyphenated, she’d be the last of her family so he’d happily taken her name so that wouldn’t happen. The funny thing about it was that he was such a sexist piece of shit when he was at school. So, you know, people can grow and change. My mother kept her last name when she married my father, and he hyphenated, but ONLY because he had a son from his first marriage and he wanted for his son to share his last name too, else he’d taken my mother’s. Seriously, where the fuck is it emasculating to take your wife’s name. Men have to stop being babies ffs.
