Mark of ownership? Oh, dear, you really don't like men, do you? Would it be so awful to share a last name, dear? Mr. Cleaver enjoys drying the dishes for me. Do you find that offensive, too?
Why must everyone live the exact same way that you do?

Long before there were hyphenated last names my mother dropped her middle name when she married in order to replace it with her maiden name. Not at all uncommon.

I think individuals, couples and families have many reasons for making the choices that they do regarding names.

What I find offensive is the knee-jerk condemnation of any who choose to hypenate their names. BTW, I knew men as well as women who have done so.

I'm sorry you don't understand what it was like to be able to go to the grocery store without worrying about getting mugged, dear. And if a young teen DID make the attempt, the parents would know about it before the errant teenager arrived home!
Then you find yourself in agreement with Ms. Harris-Perry's thesis that responsibility for children goes beyond their own home and family?
