Why are my feminist friends still taking their husbands' surnames? | Zoe Holman | Comment is free | theguardian.com
An interesting question; I can certainly see the very strong arguments for keeping your name, but I can also see those for wanting to share a name as part of the togetherness of marriage. The problem is that patriarchal culture means everyone expects it to be the man's name. Of course, in that case you can double-barrel, or you could even come up with an entirely new name (though few would, I think)

Yes, equality is important. Yes, there are issue that men face. But no, the 'men's rights' issues are not at the same level as the systemic and cultural disadvantage women face.

'Flirting with domestic violence imagery in your shock-tactic marketing is not the way to promote an animal-free diet'

Trigger warning for it somewhat discussing sexual abuse, also it has some scantily clad photos, so semi-NSFW
