Well, I was trying not to get into some of the other issues right now,
just sticking to the main point I was making earlier. If you have a
problem with having a patriarchy based surname, change it to whatever
you'd like. Or be a one-name person. It's O.K. by me. If you'd
really like to discuss something else, maybe we should do it off-line.
Let me know and we can resume later.
