ILLEGAL. Not just that you “should” change your name. But that it should be ILLEGAL for you not to do so.
“Innocent tradition” my ass. No social pressure my ass.
what the fuck
uuuuuh-huh. I’d really like to know more about the sample they used to get that data.
And just remember - a survey’s findings aren’t fact, they’re theoretical. I’m not saying there aren’t idiots who honestly think women should be required by law to take a man’s name. Shit, there are still people who think your spouse should have exactly matching pigment. But I really want to know more about the people they spoke to before I get up-in-arms about this.
They said “nationally representative” which could mean anything from wealth demographics to race demographics, but they only asked 815 people. Given the regional differences inherent in the question, I have serious serious doubts about the viability of the poll.
a fairytale were a young girl is kidnapped and forced to marry a demon king and instead of being like no! never! shes like fine as long as i get to help you destroy and hes like lol cool but soon shes doing a bit too much and her husband king is like okay enough power and shes like bye see you in the dungeon and hes like what and hes dragged away cause now everyone is more loyal to her and she reigns over the underworld and the surface world with a cold iron fist
I was just thinking about how much we sexualize professions that are heavily female-typed/fill the roles of a traditional “mother”: maids, babysitters, nurses, teachers - our society has a pretty big Oedipal complex.
