I get the feeling feminists are coonts with severe penis envy,...

Who are these cartoonish feminists that you refer to?
Every woman I know is a feminist (ie believes that women have the same rights as men) and none of them are like this. I have never met a woman like this. It is probably just another stereo type created by the Rush/Faux news crowd that insecure males adopted.

Kept my own name when I got married. Explained my reasoning to family and inlaws and no-one else has ever had a problem with it.

Fark_Guy_Rob: I know it's not a popular opinion - but in my experience with authority figures like the police, irs, government, TSA, etc, etc.... is that 99% of the time they get it right.

I'm quite sure there is more to the story they aren't telling you.

Like when you see a 30 second cell phone video of a cop pushing someone too hard against the hood of their car; but in actuality the guy was drunk, had a history of beating his wife, was yelling so loud the neighbors called the police, then spent 20 minutes in a drunken rage threatening to kill the cops, then immediately before the video stops on the cops foot....then the cop subdues him and everyone jumps on the 'We hate laws' bandwagon....

The fact that the guy was able to change his name, get a new driver's license, a new SS card, and new passport suggests that his problem isn't changing his name. Over a year later something happens that raises the fraud flag? And everyone just thinks, 'Gee the government is stupid - this guy has to be legit....I mean, criminals never lie, right?'

A Cuban immigrant and a Vietnamese family - I mean, look, let's just be honest here - there are probably some skeletons in their closets...


Your statement is not motivated by race, not in the least.

I have met feminists like this, sadly. That being said, they are much less common than some posters would like to pretend, and are generally vastly outnumbered by people who are either outright male chauvinists or who believe that they are unprejudiced in their feelings about women but still hold somewhat antiquated views that they consider "normal" and can't even understand are sexist.

(My favorite was the ex-girlfriend who thought that feminism meant if I asked her to either do housework or help with the bills it was because I was sexist, but also that it meant she shouldn't have to help with the bills, have a job, work, or do anything that she didn't feel like doing. Her mother also talked about how men and women should be equal and so on but generally acted the same way and was unapologetically racist to boot. They were a fun bunch...)

(Also have my wife's friend who basically tells her that she (my wife) is stupid and submissive for being a stay-at-home mom and I'm oppressing her. Trust me, if my wife's job had paid enough for me to stay home and take care of the kids, I would've traded positions in a heartbeat.)

(It's worth noting that while I can talk about those two, they stand out in my mind because of their relative rarity, versus the litany of intentional or innocent sexist behavior from men I could discuss.)

Tatterdemalian: The My Little Pony Killer: Why are feminists sneering at a woman making her own choices in life?

Because she's not choosing what they want her to choose (see Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin).


Oh Michelle "I kept my name for professional reasons but other women who do the same are bad wives" Malkin.

As for name changes, my wife's relatives still send her mail addressed to her using my last name, even though she was quite clear with them that she was keeping her own last name. I think the average women gets more raised eyebrows for keeping her own name than sneers from imaginary straw feminists for not.

pxsteel: victrin: I smell a lawsuit.

That he will not win. So you think you are special and so forward thinking. Well, good for you, it's not illegal, it has a $400 filing fee and you have to fill out the correct paperwork.

It's not hard, quit whining


In Florida, the stated policies of the DMV as available to the customer for name changes after marriage do not specify the gender of the spouse who is changing a last name. The marriage certificate is the only document you need to change your last name to your spouse's last name; you do not need to pay a $400 filing fee and you do not need a name change order from the Circuit Court if you have a marriage certificate. The guy in the article did everything in accordance with policy.

TL;DR version: You're wrong.

Oh, I forgot that Subby has learned everything he knows about feminists from Tumblr.  My bad.


He probably picked up his shiatty attitudes here on Fark. It's not like Fark, Reddit or Digg feature enlightened, compassionate and empathetic viewpoints towards human beings who aren't white, well-off and male.

He did it right. He changed his passport. It's a trump card. Just turn in license and the. While still standing there get a new one. Passport is the trump card of ID docs.

Not sure how many feminists you know, but I've met several that think this way; they scream about women's choice, then belittle the ones who choose 'wrongly'.

And yet, amazingly, with tens of thousands of people posting on Fark including thousands of feminists, we've never seen one in person and only have anecdotes like yours about these mythical screaming and belittling activists, and not even blurry footage a la Bigfoot. But I'm sure you're different and your alleged feminists totally exist and aliens really did probe you and you weren't just drinking and trying to ride your truck's stick shift.

Well there's you.


Really? When have I "scream[ed] about women's choice, then belittle[d] the ones who choose 'wrongly'"? Or are you trying to move the goalposts because you can't actually find a single instance of that?

Remember in that "Oklahoma City hate crimes thread" where you all but accused some guy of being involved because you didn't like his opinion? And then it turned out that the whole thing was faked?

Good times...


Yep, you are. Worthy attempt, but a total fail.

And no, it wasn't "because I didn't like his opinion", but rather than he showed up three times over 15 minutes, not responding to anyone, to post single sentence statements about how the victim deserved it. And yeah, wanting someone to look that up in that context is not at all unreasonable, and I stand by it.

I'm pretty sure the joke was the idea that Palin and Malkin get sneered at for their choices, and not for their lack of intellectual honesty.

Our legal system isn't perfect.

Out of every one hundred backrubs it gives, ninety-nine people get backrubs. One gets a broken neck. It happens at random, but usually to people other than white.

I understand both sides. If the DMV clerk hadn't followed procedure to the absolute letter, they would have been shiat-canned.

Civil servants are just like any employee of an enterprise-level company - you will never get in trouble if you follow exactly the regulations. The one time you bend a rule, it bites you in the ass and you get fired.

This fellow has a great lawsuit against the DMV. Don't blame the rank and file, or even the middle-management, blame the Governor who signed off on that policy.
