Here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:
Let me preface this next link by saying that I am, like, SO fucking over “feminists” who can’t stop bitching and moaning about how sad it makes them when other women take their husband’s names. As feminists they applaud a woman’s right to make personal choices, but then belittle or, worse, condemn whatever choices they think aren’t feminist enough (like changing their name, converting to their husband’s religion, quitting their jobs to be stay-at-home mothers, formula-feeding their babies, enjoying rom-coms)? Whatever. I’m a feminist and I not only support a woman’s right to personal choice, I applaud choices that differ my own (and for those not keeping track: kept name; did not convert; stay-at-home mom; yes on formula; and yes and rom-coms). “Why should married women change their names? Let men change theirs” [via The Guardian]

Count me among the viewers who were disappointed in the finale of “Girls” on Sunday. I thought it was hokey, though I do love seeing a shirtless Adam Driver as much as the next person. “‘Girls’ Ending: Season 2’s Rom-Com Final Scenes Get Mixed Reactions” [via HuffPo]
