I'd love to slap you right now.

How exactly does this: \"Women keeping their last names\" equate to this: \"we're sissyfying the male race\" you half-wit (half-wit by the way is probably being too generous)?
Let me guess. You're one of those guys who thinks that unless you're a NASCAR watching, wrestling cheering, beer swilling, hairy, sweaty brutish behemoth who's either chasing women, hunting something unnecessarily, driving an oversized truck and working with power tools for a living then you aren't a *real* man. Am I right?
Guys like you, iklepac13, should slink back to the caves you came from or think of joining the 21st century with the rest of us.

Damn! I went to school, read good books, listened when wise people spoke and grew up to be a smart, kind and generous person. I'm such a failure as a man.

Your amazing knack of focussing on the microscopically trivial to the point of indivisible irrelvance, certainly doesn't make me wonder why nobody is prepared to follow you up the steamy crannies of your own colon...

How dare women retain their identity. Blasphemy!!!
3/31/2006 6:16:42 AM
Sissfyication of men? Speak for yourself buddy.

\"The male race\" ?

Damn homersexuals and their oooohgenic purification of the male race.

I think practicality suggests that tradition be followed and men keep their name and women change theirs. Hyphens get confusing, and how many generations can you expect to carry them on for before it becomes a major pain. It seems like since someone has to make the change why not keep with tradition. My last name is already fourteen letters long, no way am i going to hyphenate that.
That being said althoug I consider it impractical, i don't see how a woman keeping her name makes anyone a sissy.
Maybe we need a new tradition, a married couple chooses a new last name for both of them that is different from either of their old one's.

But with a hyphenated naming system we could be begin a system of showing respect to our ancestrial bloodline by being able to recite our entire list of hyphenated last names as they grow over time - Just like Zammis did at the end of \"Enemy Mine\".

Or better still it be a combination of the two.
Brad and Angelina could be Pitlie or Jolt!
I still say it's a shame the Pinistons had to split up though.

No, iklepac, it's because of the way people venerate Queen Victoria as the model of raising kids: obedient followers. And it's people like yourself who would follow an old bat like that who also thought that people should be covered in two layers of clothing from the neck down so she wouldn't betray Albert!

\"Way to invent a new race\" award?
3/31/2006 12:56:31 PM
Is there a \"so get your ass in the kitchen, WOMAN!\" award or something??
to MD20/20; I love your username. reminds me of many fun yet vomitous experiences in high school.

Funny, but I noticed that these \"men\" who complain about women's rigths, liberation and the \"sissyfying\" of the male \"race\" (that's as bad as male species), tend to be......chickenhawks.

I took my husband's last name because I got teased for my last name all my life (no, I'm not telling - let's just say it's easy to rhyme) and I don't like double-barrelled surnames.
But that's just me.
What do misogynists have against the idea of choice?
And, ryan, tradition is no reason to keep something.

I'd have to agree about the lack of leadership though. Dubya ain't much of a leader.

iklepac13 here is just a little upset that his wife enjoys fucking him up da butt with a strap-on.
Hey ikle! I hear the ol' lady bought a thirteen incher yesterday! Good luck trying to walk tommorrow!
3/31/2006 8:55:29 PM
I'd just like to add that my wife kept her surname, but for the sole and only reason that the bank wanted to charge her £25 to change it. It's never been an issue with me.

In the last male race, the male I was riding refused to start running when the boxes opened.
No, I'm not wondering why I lost.

In Spain and Mexico women keep the last name.............just in case you feel that only men feel well feeling abusive and domeenering which, to my knowledge, is condenmed in the Bible.

This is the second time that I've visited the Men's Corner, and the second time I've been repulsed by some of the viewpoints there. It's also the umpteenth time I've heard or read something that's made me afraid to date Christian men, despite being a Christian myself.
