On Interview With a Lapsed Christian Virgin

@queenofbithynia I just registered to say that I love your answer and I will quote you/read this to anyone who I discuss this with in the future. Because I agree 100% that all choices are fine, but sometimes standing up to social norms is hard and people who do that should get some recognition as well. A quick anecdote: I am not American and one professor in my department got married to another professor and took his name which means "pimple" in my language. Whenever I hear women say: "I just don't like my name that much, I can take his" I tell them this story, because obviously even when men have the most horrible name I can think of, men get to keep theirs.
