I find myself being a bad feminist occasionally. At least I'm not alone there.

Exactly. It's not like we live without context. I think future generations will have it easier (at least I hope so), but there's still so much weirdness out there. I have to say though that it bugs the bejeezus out of me when people assume my husband and I have the same last name. But I think that's more about people attempting to pretend a familiarity where there just isn't one and using their crappy assumptions to get there. Didn't the part where cashiers address you by the name on your credit card go out of fashion?

And there's my Friday afternoon rant. :)

I like it when cashiers address me by the name on my credit card, it is, after all, my name. Even when my hubby is there - they address me. "Thank you for shopping at QFC Ms. Sernett." They never assume the guy I'm with is my husband (even though we have matching wedding bands) and they never assume I'm a Mrs. (b/c honestly, I prefer Ms. a lot!)

That NEVER happens to me, it's always Mrs. Something or he's Mr. Something (where Something is always wrong). It makes me very sad, but I never have enough energy to correct it. That may be where the real problem is.
